5.0 out of 5 stars Personally I think it's an amazing album, especially the remastered version featuring Chris Kimsey's ..., Jan. 16 2015
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns followed "Night Time" in 1986. Personally I think it's an amazing album, especially the remastered version featuring Chris Kimsey's mixes. Along the same lines as Night Time, the songs are all very rhythmic and rock quite a bit. The remastering on this one is amazing. Includes the singles "Adorations", and "Sanity". A great add to your 80s collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night Time is my favourite Killing Joke album, Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Night Time (Rm) (Audio CD)
Night Time is my favourite Killing Joke album. This is their 5th recording and was released in 1985. Very in tune with that time period, it's a very rhythmic rock album, The bass and drums are definitely front and center. Includes the singles "Night Time" , "Love Like Blood" (which is probably their best known song), and "King and Queens". It also ends with the awesome track "Eighties" . Essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars I personally love this CD, Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: House of dolls (Audio CD)
"The House of Dolls" is Gene Loves Jezebel 4th album. Upon release, this one divided a lot of their fans, as they moved away from goth-alternative to a more glam rock direction. I personally love this CD. From the rockier "Gorgeous", "The Motion of Love", "Twenty Killer Hurts" to slower ones "Every Door", "Message". A great album that needs to be remastered as a single disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is probably their best as well, Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Floodland (Audio CD)
Floodland is The Sisters Of Mercy's 2nd album. This is probably their best as well. Considered a Goth classic, this CD is a majestic soundscape. "This Corrosion" is probably the best of the lot, but other highlights include the amazing ballad "1959" and the expansive medley "Dominion/Mother Russia"

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my 2nd favourite solo recording of his after the classic "Deep", Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Cascade (Audio CD)
Cascade is Peter Murphy's 5th solo album and released in 1995. Probably my 2nd favourite solo recording of his after the classic "Deep" . The charismatic front man of the gothic band Bauhaus is in excellent voice here (as in Deep and followup Holy Smoke). Numerous highlights from opener " Mirror To My Woman's Mind", "Subway", "Gliding Like a Whale" , "I'll Fall With Your Knife" and "The Scarlet Thing in You" . A classic from the 90's.

5.0 out of 5 stars then a long run with the always excellent "Love and Rockets", Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Foolish Thing Desire (Audio CD)
Daniel Ash is one of those artists that I've listened to for over 30 years. A member of the gothic group "Bauhaus", onto the twisted pop of side project "Tones on Tail" , then a long run with the always excellent "Love and Rockets". Foolish Thing Desire is his 2nd solo album which was released in 1992. More similar in tone to Love and Rockets to his previous groups, this CD is excellent nonetheless. Highlights include the title track + "Get Out of Control", "The Hedonist", " The Void" and "Higher Than This"

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2nd favourite CD by The National (after the classic "High Violet"), Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Alligator (Audio CD)
My 2nd favourite CD by The National (after the classic "High Violet") , This one is an amazing blend of cathartic rockier songs to the more introspective ones. Some may prefer "Boxer" to this one and High Violet, but for me, you can't go wrong with either one of these. Absolutely love The National :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Earth Sun Moon is the 3rd album by this excellent British band, Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Earth Sun Moon (Audio CD)
Earth Sun Moon is the 3rd album by this excellent British band. Released in 1987, this has crept up to become my co-favourite recording of all time (alongside "High Violet" by The National") Similar in tone with The Church's "Starfish" which was released the following year. Every song on this is perfection, but highlights include "Mirror People", "The Light", "No New Tale To Tell", "Earth Sun Moon", and "Youth". If you can find a copy of this exceptional CD , please do not hesitate to purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Club Meds is the followup to the excellent "Oh Fortune", Jan. 16 2015
This review is from: Club Meds (Audio CD)
Club Meds is the followup to the excellent "Oh Fortune", but the 1st under the new modified moniker. This CD is an absolute masterpiece. It's a classic recording in every sense of the word. This is a fuller sound than on previous recordings, and while the songs are not as immediate as "Rows of Houses" or "Post War Blues" from his previous offering, they are all excellent nonetheless. I imagine this being on my top 5 recordings this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favourite CDs of all time, Nov. 27 2014
This review is from: Fault Lines (Audio CD)
This is one of my favourite CDs of all time. One of many great Danish bands, Turboweekend's 3rd album is excellent from start to finish. From the opener "Fire of the Stampede", through the propulsive "On My Side" and the reflective "I Forgot" , Fault Lines is simply one of the best albums this past decade. For fans of Kashmir, Nephew, Carpark North....
