Second only to Fields of the Nephilim. A must for all goths.

"The greatest goth band never to receive proper recognition from the masses. With Chris Reed on vocals, David Wolfenden on guitar, Leon Phillips on bass, and Mick Brown and Chris Oldroyd on drums, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry has the innate ability to evoke emmotions that few bands can. Perhaps overshadowed by fellow Leeds band Sisters of Mercy, they developed a fanatical club following due to their highly danceable beats and charged songs. If you're pondering what album would be a solid introduction to RLYL, the answer is any album."

"These two albums are the classic line-up, and the production, considering it was 20 years ago, is perfect for the genre (I hate that word). If you want to hear what Red Lorry Yellow Lorry was all about, this is it.
The first half is their first album, which was a nice added feature for me, but the mayhem really starts on track 9, "Walking On Your Hands". And it keeps going. Paint Your Wagon is one of my all-time favorite albums. It's raw, full of hooks, gives you a chance to breathe once in a while, and doesn't pretend to be something that it isn't. I'm listening to it as I'm typing this. The grooves are strait and powerful, the guitar sounds like an audio acid trip, The bass handles the melody duties (this is responsible for references to Joy Division)and the vocals actually tie it all together. "Last Train" and "Head All Fire" are my favorites, but there isn't a bad track here, in my opinion."
