TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘First And Last And Always’ by SISTERS OF MERCY

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘First And Last And Always’ by SISTERS OF MERCY
Released: 11 March 1985 – debut LP

ALL MUSIC review: “With the band itself falling to bits shortly after the March 1985 debut of First and Last and Always, the album’s place in the skewed history of the rise of goth rock would, on one hand, be permanently linked with that discord but, on the other, not impacted in the slightest, leaving the fractious set’s success and structure to become a blueprint for an entire generation of up-and-comers. Copied to death, its brilliance has never been replicated. Indeed, the entire album remains unequaled in the genre, permanently granted top place on a pedestal from which it cannot be toppled.” – Score: 4/5 – Full review here
