12 November 2017

Band: SISTERS OF MERCY

Album: FLOODLAND – 2nd LP

Released: 13 November 1987 – 30 years ago

ALL MUSIC wrote: “While the goth scene in England was picking up commercial steam in the mid-’80s, the “Sisters of Mercy” may have seemed quiet, but they roared back with ‘Floodland’. Opening with the driving two-part hymn “Dominion/Mother Russia,” Sisters leader Andrew Eldritch (along with bassist Patricia Morrison) creates a black soundscape that is majestic and vast. While the earlier Sisters releases were noisy, sometimes harsh affairs, ‘Floodland’ is filled with lush production (thanks to Meat Loaf writer/producer Jim Steinman and the New York Choral Society) and lyric imagery that is both scary and glorious. A definite milestone.”

Turn Up The Volum!: says: ‘Floodland’ is a massive electrifying goth pop machine…
