Finally after 5 years The Mission graces us with another album. It's been
a long wait and nobody expected how good this album would be. This recording
is a strong contender for its place as the best Mission album ever. It brings
together everything that's been good about the Mission since 1986. The gloom,
the mood, the classic mish guitar sound, the lyrics and the unique voice of
Wayne Hussey. The album opens with the storming 'Evangeline' which immediately
tells you that this is classic Mission. A return to what they alone do best.
And it just keeps getting better, continuing with the beautiful 'Shine Like
the Stars, the compelling 'Slave to Lust', on into a wistful, slowed-down version
of 'Mesmerised' and picking up with the rocking 'Lay Your Hands On Me' which
promises to become a favourite live anthem in the vein of 'Deliverance'. The
soaring 'Dragonfly' comes next, quickly followed by the up-tempo, bouncy 'Happy'
then into 'Trophy/It Never rains'. This long-awaited new album looks set to
become a firm favourite of Mission-fans everywhere and is a wonderful treat
for the ears. Conclusion; Right from the opener the Mission sound is back -
great hook, groove and even some pomp that made Carved in Sand sound so good.
A lot of the songs sound familiar, but the album as a whole is faster, rocky.
A return to optima forma.
