THE SISTERS OF MERCY - First And Last And Always (DIGIPAK CD)
United Kingdom | Rock
The template for all goth-rock records that followed, Sisters of Mercy?s First And Last And Always stands as one of the?if not the most?influential albums of its kind ever released. Distinguished by Andrew Eldritch?s ghostly singing, which gives the impression of hearing a forlorn ghoul croon from a foggy English graveyard, the 1985 set is drenched in gloom, claustrophobia, black humor, and dance-ready beats that provide exhilarating contrasts. Fans of the Cure, Depeche Mode, Love and Rockets, Peter Murphy, mid-period Nick Cave, and Joy Division will find it to be a new favorite record.
