Editorial Reviews

The Mission are back with their most exciting album to date. Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams, & Simon Hinkler, original members all, along with drummer Mike Kelly, came to realize that they actually made quite a decent big ol noise together and wanted to capture their newly rejuvenated sound on record. In support of the new album, the band will embark on a US headlining tour this September hitting all major market cities along the way. This is a unique work and sounds only like The Mission, this is a band that has never sounded so good, so fresh, so true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat amongst the pigeons! September 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Well, this album has certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons, hasn't it? I haven't seen a new album from any artist for many a year that has polarised and divided it's audience quite like this new album from The Mission. The responses are extreme, no middle ground wherever you look. Nothing average about this album. It's either being loved or absolutely hated.
The Mission, or should I say Wayne Hussey in particular, has never played it safe, has he? Every album he releases regardless of whatever name he uses has been different. Why, in the last two years alone he has released Curios with Julianne Regan which was all glorious shiny techno pop and then the Ungodly Hour with Marcus Birro which was Swedish poetry set to home-grown acoustic blues & folk. And now the dirty rock of The Brightest Light. One thing is for sure and that is Hussey is a maverick and does divide opinion. He very rarely conforms to expectation.
And this is the problem with this album for a lot of people. It doesn't conform to what is expected of either Hussey or The newly reformed Mission with both Simon Hinkler and Craig Adams back in the ranks. it was always implausible to expect a new Carved In Sand or Children or God's Own Medicine.
Sure, I can see if you're a fan of Wasteland or Deliverance then this album is probably not for you. But, like anyone that has seen The Mission live will attest, they are first and foremost a rock band. A really f***** good one too. They always have been contrary to public and media preconceptions.
This is a great rock record, quite possibly their best ever and certainly one of the very best of the 2013 releases.
It's a proper grown up album made by blokes who are obviously enjoying what they do and feeling like they have nothing to prove.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Different Mission Collection February 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will begin by stating that I have loved and listened to the Mission UK, or the Mission??? since 1992. I have enjoyed the various transitions of Mr. Hussey's musical evolution. I have enjoyed the mix of rock anthems, and the love songs alike. We can go back in time 20 years when the Mission was at its' peak, and recall the enormous sounds we experienced at these concerts, with flashes and shadows swirling about. It was incredible. I have always thought of the Mission's sound to be a combination of part (the cure), (The Cult), throw in some (led zep) and an little (U 2) and that kind of gives someone an idea of what they might sound like for the most part. However, on this CD they certainly do leave that description behind. This album just rocks. There is little place for love songs, ballads, or pretty melodic hooks. You basically get the Mission on a heavy Rock experience. Personally, I miss the balance. I miss the build up from soft and sweet, to full on Rock, that once was their calling card. In musical terms, that would be called, dynamics. I believe that the Mission was better when they used them. However, this is simply a Rock CD. Be warned, if you are like me, and enjoy the classic Mission style, you may get a big surprise. You may like it, and you may miss the mix in their music. Rock on!

So by now most of the people who really wanted to hear the album have heard it either streamed or otherwise and hopefully, like me, you are loving it. Another review here touches on the main album, so I just thought I'd throw in here on the bonus tracks.

If you follow The Mission or Wayne live, you are probably familiar with I'm Fallin' Again- so to answer the big question- yes, it is the same as Falling, which I think makes it a Wayne solo song, but I can't be sure of that. I know he was playing this and Revenge at his solo shows. A nice, near whispered vocal slowly builds with the constant guitar until everything kicks in. I think it would have fit the album a bit better- or at least added some more variety as the middle of the album gets to sounding a little same-y, but it's here, so you can add it to the playlist wherever you want it.
I was constantly commenting on how the new album felt a bit like Blue with dashes of Aura and GiaB when it first leaked, so I had to laugh when the lyrics to the gospel-like The Long Way 'Round Is Sometimes the Only Way Home began and I realized he was singing the lyrics to Coming Home (the opening track on Blue) with a new chorus (give you a hint: it's the song's title;). It's certainly not the first time Wayne's done something like that, but it always feels so strange, like a sort of deja-vu. It really would have been distracting had they put it on the main album, so I'm glad it was released on the bonus disc where I can be more selective about listening to it. Not a bad song, but very distracting for any Mission fan familiar with Coming Home.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time... October 24, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
...Wayne stopped slacking...good album, and I look forward to dancing to it!

Been a fan for decades, and have enjoyed every live show I have caught. True artists who support their fans, they are old school in the best of ways.
