Bottom line, the last time this band made new music was 25 freakin' years ago, so why even bother making comparisons? This album stands on its own and I think it's a great record worth repeated listens. Its dark, rockin', and dramatic and that's the way I've always loved Bauhaus. Highlights are Adrenalin, Endless Summer Of The Damned, The Dog's A Vapour , and Saved (weird song but gooood). Fans of the Bauhaus of old owe it to themselves to check this album out. Definitely THE surprise release of 2008 and probably the last decade.
P.S. I don't know about the rest of you guys who actually bought the cd, but I got a cool sticker with mine. Enjoy.
While they seem to drift a bit to somewhat familiar waters with a late 90's Love and Rockets feel to "Too Much 21st Century", every song after that gave me that same quiver in my stomach I got when I first picked up "In The Flat Field" as a college kid in the '80's. Each song is mystery to be discovered and unwound with each successive listen. Trace elements of the scars of their 25 years journey become evident to the truest of Bauhaus fans and that's ok because they've never strayed far from their roots in any of their incarnations. So here we have it. The final album. It IS Bauhaus and it's Bauhaus as they have always been and will always be.
So it's into this that Bauhaus' new album arrives, and one thing I can say-- you can't go home again. The music of Bauhaus in the late '70s and early '80s was unique, powerful and of its time. It stands on its own but one fears any effort to recapture that glory would fall flat-- mind you, it'd draw its armies of praise from the retro crowd, but in five years, it'd be a record collecting dust like other similar projects. Happily, Bauhaus did not pursue this route, instead turning out something entirely new.Read more ›
Bauhaus have always been a combination of moments of complete self indulgence interspersed through some of the best songs ever .
Take away the best songs ever and that's what your left with here .
There are a few decent moments ( The Dogs A Vapour) .
But I think the individual members have had too long to follow their own sound - some of these songs sound like Love and Rockets with Pete singing .The undercurrent of menace and anger has completely gone .
Maybe being such a huge fan of their work my expectations were too high
The first five tracks are all guitar riff-driven glam rockers that are closer cousins to 'Kundalini Express' than to 'Double Dare'. 'Zikir' particularly sounds like something off of Murphy's album, 'Dust', with its droning almost-Dead Can Dance sound. 'Saved' is a very interesting artrock drone, catching them at their most gloomy since 'Mask', where 'Black Stone Heart' is the closest thing to Tones On Tail since, well...Tones On Tail. Lyrically, Murphy might spew out a few references to crimson spots or burning bodies, but the lyrics are definitely more lightweight than say, oh, 'Stigmata Martyr'. 'Endless Summer Of The Damned' even refers to global warming; very 2008, Pete. Soundwise, the album moves like a downward spiral, starting out with the Bowie-esque rockers and spiraling down to the atmospheric dirges ('The Dog's A Vapour' makes a reappearance after being a bonus track before, in a re-recorded form).Read more ›

You would think if Peter Murphy, and the guys from Tones on Tails and Love and Rockets formed a band it would be GREAT. Well.... this is that album and it is not great. Read morePublished on May 14, 2014 by I Teach Typing

Bauhaus was great, Peter Murphy is great, but Love and Rockets never caught my fancy. Unfortunately, this album leans heavily on the Love and Rockets feel.Published on December 2, 2012 by Adrienne Berka
