On July 5, 1983, "Rest In Peace" were the last words uttered by bass player David J as he left the stage announcing to an unsuspecting audience and crew that BAUHAUS had just played their final concert. Shortly after, a press release followed confirming that BAUHAUS had disbanded.

It is one of the ironies of rock music that a handful of groups, such as The Velvet Underground or ... Read more in Amazon's Bauhaus Store

Editorial Reviews

The essential Goth band Bauhaus was already starting to splinter by the time of this final album, so Burning from the Inside is a rickety bridge between fiery, arty intimations of darkness, and the two paths bandmembers later took: singer Peter Murphy's intense new-wave drama, and the more playful dance-club rock groove favored by the others (who went on to Tones On Tail and to Love and Rockets). David J.'s guitar sound, sour and sharp, and the band's dubby production tricks, define these songs more than Murphy's tremulous pronouncements about Antonin Artaud and emotional violence, and the artistic tension makes this their most musically adventurous record, from the tiny groan "Wasp" to the sprawling, doom-laden title track. --Douglas Wolk

4.0 out of 5 stars Bauhaus' Last but Still Ingenius February 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
People sometimes criticize this album for its misses, and yes there are a couple. However the strengths greatly outweigh them. Others also are annoyed that the circumstances surrounding the band's breakup are clearly evident in the music and give it an air of inconsistency. Maybe, but it also makes the album an interesting and essential historical artifact for fans. The remnants of Murphy's sometimes jarring performance art style (this is most clear on "Antonin Artaud" - as it should be if you know anything about the subject) stand in opposition to the nervy yet upbeat Love & Rockets pop of other tracks; "Slice of Life" would have been great on an early L&R record. "King Volcano" is a Goth-folk dirge that strangely is oft played in clubs; perhaps you've heard it and wondered why it was played in a club and why it's so mystifyingly popular. "Who Killed Mr. Moonlight" is a nostalgic tune that feels like it comes straight off of 7th Dream of Teenage Heaven; it contains the enigmatic lyric, "Extracting wasps from stings in flight". Despite the obvious divergence of paths within the bands, they managed one song where the pith of Bauhaus all comes together. That song is the nearly perfect "She's in Parties", a dark, jaded look into the life and mind of a coddled starlet; I could argue that this is the best song they ever made.
Looking back at this album after many years, it should be remembered as a quality collection of songs, some brilliant, and a chronicle of the disintegration of a towering band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swan Song January 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite Bauhaus work, although musically it's more like a collection of individual songs than an album. Previous Bauhaus albums were cohesive almost to the point of monotony - if you weren't in the right mood, you couldn't listen to them. This one, on the other hand, covers a whole range of styles, themes and emotions. The extended version is really amazing - although it may be harder to find, it's well worth it. Fantastic album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bauhaus or solo projects May 11, 2000
By abake
Format:Audio CD
First things first: I am a big Bauhaus and Love and Rockets fan. Having said that I have to warn you, this does not really sound like a Bauhaus album - not all of it at least. (not that Bauhaus really had a trademark sound... ) There are some classic Bauhaus songs, like Burning from the inside, She's in Parties and Antonin Artaud, but then there are songs like Slice of life and Who killed Mr. Moonlight that aren't even sung by Murphy and, evidently, don't sound very much like Bauhaus. Not that they're bad songs, they're quite good actually. Anyway, this has some of Bauhaus' most beautiful songs (King Volcano) and the only happy Bauhaus song I have ever heard (and I've heard them all): Hope. It's a really beautiful record and probably a more accesible one than Mask or The Sky's gone out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bauhaus' Best Album November 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is their best and darkest album. The title track is brilliant, along with 'She's in Parties'. That said, the entire album is gloomy and wonderful. I've heard it said that this is Bauhaus' most commercial album. I don't think so. If anything, it's them at their most uncommercial and 'Goth', if you will. As good as 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' was, the songs on this album are far superior. Unfortunately, this album is woefully overlooked because of the splintering of the group and the supposed inconsistency of styles. I disagree. This is a classic-right up there with The Cure's 'Pornography', the Banhees' 'Juju', and Joy Division's 'Closer'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A peice of dark art... November 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There is a 3 second guitar crescendo and the it burst out in to a electronic utopia cloaked by a dark shadow defining Bauhaus' classic sound. It may be true that Bauhaus' older albums are better however contrary to most people i belive this album is not to far behind. I once played it for my dad and he said "This sounds like what i hear when i get stoned." I laughed however listeing to the album, it puts me in a dazed state of amazement. Antonin Artaud drives you to a point where you feel like your head will explode but u love it. Then King Volcano presents a Dead Can Dance style song in a comical three four time beat showin giving it even more of a goth feel as though three four times was an often heard in medieval music. Who Killed Mr.Moonlight calms u down into a dark shadow of the room while the simple piano shows so much emotion and the saxaphone in the back adds to the sadness preojected. Slice of Life brings you back with its acoustic fury and finally Hope slowly draws you out and leaves you shaking in the complete amazment of the complete dark genious shown by the best goth/art rock band ever. I only wish i was this into them 3 years ago when they recorded Gotham in Hammerstien Ballroom. A friend of mine described it as though spirtits had flooded the room. This CD is a must have for anyone weather their a fan of punk, metal, goth rock, or even new wave. This album will change how you listen to music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic and Full of Surprises August 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you prefered the Beatles' Abby Road to Rubber Soul, if you prefered the Police's Syncronicity to Reggatta de Blanc, you will enjoy this for the same reasons; tension and discord at the end of a great band's flight, making for a wildly dynamic album that's full of surprises. Previous albums wallowed in redundant, sloppy, sanctimonious goth sillyness and far too many cuts that were simply self-indulgent wastes of the listeners' time. In this Burning From the Inside, every cut is a master-stroke and no two are similar. It ranges from profound to wacky to haunting to beautiful (though I could apply more adjectives than would fit in this space). The likes of Bela Legosi and Passion of Lovers has been left behind here, though their punk asthetics are still present in earnest except that here, they are applied in strategic highlights rather than in a clumsy wash. Of the other Bauhaus albmus, I only bother with a few songs from each but from Burning...I relish every song.

Do you love Bauhaus? Then you'll enjoy this album a lot. Sure they have much better releases. Get over it and enjoy this piece of history from a never to be duplicated again band.
