BAUHAUS – The Goth Legends Released Third Album ‘THE SKY’S GONE OUT’ 35 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history…



Released: 19 October 1982 – 35 years ago

All Music wrote: “Old, pre-recording-career songs like the strong but dated ‘In the Night’ were revived and balanced against experiments and attempts to further develop the band’s sound, ultimately making ‘The Sky’s Gone Out’ feel more like a compilation than anything else. Piece by piece, though, the songs still often showed Bauhaus in excelsis. Ash’s elegant, haunting acoustic guitar work received two great showcases, ‘Silent Hedges’, adding a more familiar electric explosion to a fine Murphy performance detailing a desperate mental collapse, and ‘All We
Ever Wanted Was Everything’, a sympathetic, nostalgic reflection on dreams of the past, again matched by a perfectly balanced Murphy vocal. Other standouts include the brooding lope of “Swing the Heartache,” with a skeletal rhythm matched against some of Ash’s best guitar work, and “Spirit,” a live standout inspired by the performance vibe the band received from its fans.

Turn Up The Volume! says: After all these years this record is still a compelling substantiation of Bauhaus‘ enthralling impact, sonically and lyrically…

Three Top Tracks (hard choice): Spirit / All We Ever Wanted Was Everything / Third Uncle

* SPIRITglorious tribute to their loyal fans

* ALL WE EVER WANTED WAS EVERYTHING (lyrics clip) haunting & gloomy beauty
