The Sisters of Mercy


The Sisters of Mercy produced some of the '80s most seminal music. And even into the early '90s. Floodland is my favorite, mostly because it didn't sound like anything else at the time and thus, it has aged pretty well, despite being essentially a synth album. So many '80s band, especially ones using electronics, seemed to be using presets of keyboard and drum sounds and now are embarrassing relics of New Wave. But Floodland still has a grand guignol bombast and mystery to it. Like the sea...

  1. Wow! Just found your blog and it is just excellent, all my favourite music in one place. I've only checked out the the Superfecta release of Long live the new Flesh at the mo, but thought I'd try my luck at the Sister's Needle & the Damage done comp,but it turns out to be F&L&A 30th Anniversary link instead.....
