Synopsis

Amazon.com
The debut release by this superstar-Goth outfit shined (and still does) in all its glorious misery and despair. Just how can it be so beautiful? the listener wonders. For one thing, when the project is conceptualized by 4AD Records brain-man Ivo Watts-Russell and includes artists from groundbreaking U.K. bands such as Cocteau Twins, Magazine, and Dead Can Dance, and when a chunk of the material is from musical heavyweights such as Tim Buckley (the haunting "Song to the Siren"), Alex Chilton of Big Star (the devastating "Holocaust" and the heartbreakingly lovely "Kangaroo"), and Colin Newman of Wire (the rockin' "Not Me"), you're bound to come up with something that will be remembered and revered by old-school Goths everywhere. This is lush, hypnotic, astonishingly beautiful. --Lorry Fleming

"If you're a fan of this kind of music, you know what you're getting.

But if not, you might be shocked when you pop this into your stereo. Well, give it a listen or three, and you'll find yourself loving it. I am not a big fan of Dead Can Dance or the Cockteau Twins, but for some reason this particular album pleases me greatly. As an entry point to this genre of music, "dream rock" or whatever you want to call it (the grandchildren of Pink Floyd), this is great.

I have to thank David Lynch for using "Song to the Siren" in Lost Highway."

"I'm moving away from my hometown this month and my best friend, whom I have known since we were fourteen, took me on a surprise driving tour of the area where all us kids used to live-- the park we used to frolick at in the rain, the coffee shops at which we used to try to wheedle pastries out of our friends when they got jobs, the local churches were we staged polaroid photo shoots, the movie theaters that we used to smuggle in alcohol to. The second I realized we were taking a trip down memory lane I nearly tore the CD playing out of the deck and put this one in immediately. Yeah, we were a bunch of kids decked in black running around in suburbia, and now we're a bunch of grown ups, and we are still friends, and we still love this CD.

This was one of the fist albums I ever owned, and I still reach for it, years later.

Anyway in case you're wondering I totally started crying with the "waaah i luv you guys so much omg waaah ur mah best friend" and he was like, "ewww no way stop it!!" and then we tried to score pastries at the coffee shop.
