2006 issued digitally remastered edition of the Sisters debut Goth rock classic. First released in 1985 before the split between Eldritch and Hussey (leading to Hussey's creation of the Mission), this remastered reissue still sounds as fresh as ever. The Sisters of Mercy could have been massive, and later releases hinted at that possibility, but personnel and label disputes stalled them, so this is the first of a tragically short three-album career. Often incorrectly labeled as goth, this is post-punk rock: meaty, bombastic and quite unlike anything else released at the time. The album remains unequaled in the genre, permanently esconced ont top of a pedestal from which it cannot be toppled. From the opening claustrophobia of "Black Planet" to the melancholy "No Time to Cry," Eldritch continually assured listeners that "Everything's Gonna Be Alright". Continuing with the bass-driven guitar gem "Possession" and the closing "Some Kind Of Stranger", an untouchable epic that, clocking in at over 7 minutes, is the best of its kind. "Some Kind of Stranger" became a "Love Song" for the Goth crowd. Copied to death, its brilliance has never been replicated. This edition was remastered from the original multitracks and sounds better than ever before, Augmented by 6 non-LP B-sides plus "Some Kind of Stranger", a previously unissued (early version) track from the album sessions.
