Title: Floodland [Numbered Limited Edition] [Bonus Tracks]
Artist: Sisters of Mercy
Label: Mobile Fidelity
Product Type: VINYL LP
The Sisters of Mercy emerged from a brief hiatus and lineup overhaul in spectacularly grand fashion on Floodland, an epic album that stands as the group's commercial breakthrough as well as one of the period's monumental productions. Having witnessed his bandmates leave, singer Andrew Eldritch recruited bassist Patricia Morrison, utilized a groundbreaking drum machine, and hooked up with Meat Loaf collaborator Jim Steinman to attain a glorious, bombastic, and irrepressible marriage of gothic rock and sumptuous balladry.
