Digitally remastered and expanded digipack reissue of this classic Sisters Of Mercy album, originally released in 1990. This reissue has been remastered directly from the original studio tapes and has now been bolstered with five bonus tracks. The third Sisters Of Mercy album, "Vision Thing", makes a dramatic shift from its predecessor, introducing heavy metal riffs to the band's genre-defining goth sound. Far from signifying a fundamental change in Andrew Eldritch's sound (once again, he had a new group of musicians with him, keeping only the drum machine, Doktor Avalanche), this combination is anexcellent sonic fit. The swaggering machismo of heavy rock nicely next to Eldritch's studiously straight-faced delivery of his colossally egocentric and intentionally funny lyrics. Opening with the monster riff of the title track, "Vision Thing" is a note-perfect parody of rock, while also pushing the boundaries of goth, something the Sisters havedone consistently with each of their releases. Standouts include "Ribbons", where the guitars alternately call to mind crashing waves and thunderclaps, and the caustic lyrics end in a desperate howl. "Doctor Jeep" is a jittery, caffeinatedswipe at American commercialism, and "More", a masterpiece of bombast built on a big, chugging guitar riff, incorporates everything from sawing, synthesized violins and a piano fade out, to gloriously selfish lyrics and swooping backing vocals. Vision Thing is a much rockier, more pop influenced record than anything ever produced by The Sisters of Mercy before. Most of their hardcore fans expressed a complete disatisfaction with this album when it was released which is surprising when you consider that there are some of their best tracks on here.
