Anniversary album: THE SKY’S GONE OUT
Released: 22 October 1982 – 40 years ago
AllMusic said: “The Sky’s Gone Out was caught between the expectations of an audience
now thoroughly embracing the incipient goth genre, with all the built-in limitations such expectations often provide, and a band which wanted to please them while still following its own muse. On balance it’s quite a fine album, but unlike Mask it misses the infusion of a more positive energy, and simply doesn’t gel as perfectly, more notable for individual songs than as
a whole.” Score: 3/5.
TUTV: So much better than the critical press reception back then.
A sublime versatile record that didn’t age.
