"Compared with the glut of so-called bands these days, listening to my old goth collection is a breath of fresh air. And this classic release from The Mission, one of the UK's finest ever bands still sounds blinding as it did back in 1987! WASTELAND, a major UK chart hit, opens, with its healthy mixture of rock beats and acoustic swirling guitar riffing and is followed by the bolshy guitar-laden BRIDGES BURNING. SEVERINA features All About Eve's(anyone remember THEM? Great band!) Julianne Regan, this time in slow rock mode. LOVE ME TO DEATH is one you should play to that special person in your life, although the romantic ballad version on the 1990 single DELIVERANCE is better in my view. Comparisons aside, anyone new to the goth scene would be most foolish to miss out on this classic retrospective. And only then will you notice how influential they have been, especially towards the late 1980s and early 1990s. Overall, it brings back some memories of the live performances I saw of the Mission and especially vocalist Wayne Hussey's enigmatic stage presence; this album will remain one of my all time favourites."
Goth's - real goth - very best

"If you own no other post goth album - fer the gods' sake buy this. I've listened to it on vinyl and on cd and I never can get beyond it being the best gothic(non-depressing) album since 1985. If you want depressing, get the Cure's "pornography" or joy division's "unknown pleasures". On the other hand - if you want music that gives you hope and take's your hand and leads you, then go for this gothic classic. They haven't given up the ghost - why should you? Love conquers all...."
Best Mission album by far

"The first and best Mission album by a long shot, this one is pure rock. I recommend it to anyone who likes the old Sisters or Fields of the Nephilim. Technically it has a few problems, but in spirit it's a fine continuation of the FALAA-era Sisters legacy. Wayne's voice is probably the weakest part of the Mission - it breaks when he screams in Blood Brother, and wavers in Garden of Delight - but he still manages to carry the songs. A lot of Sisters-style guitar work with a little more drama, some great background vocals from Julianne Regan, and nice broody lyrics. Check out All About Eve's eponymous album for an interesting tangent - various Mission members are featured on some of the songs, including the very Missionesque "Shelter from the Rain"."
