This was my introduction to the world of "Gothic Punk." I was 14 and had never heard anything remotely like this, but the songs on this album hooked me fast. Lords of the New Church has quite a bit of songwriting talent. Dave Tregunna, although not the best bass player I have heard, plays some of the catchiest and most simple and original lines in songs like Johnny Too Bad and Dance With Me. Stiv Bator's voice has plenty of attitude and his lyrics are really cool in a trashy way. If you like the Damned you'll recognize their former guitarist Brian James who plays really cool guitar figures against the bass lines. They top it off with some sick 50's esque horn lines too! Overall this is a great rock and roll record. I would highly recommend this to any fans of the Damned and anyone who wants to hear how great and refreshingly simple a rock record can be!

This is a review of the most recent (2013) CD release from "Real Gone Music" of The Lords Of The New Church's 2nd studio album, "Is Nothing Sacred."

First, a short bit about the album itself - INS is The Lords most radio-friendly and stylistically diverse record, with their most relatively popular single, "Dance With Me" as well as their cover of "Live For Today." It's also the bands most balanced release in that all four members made significant contributions. There's a few punkier, harder rocking numbers like the excellent "Partners In Crime" as well as darker, slow burn songs like "World's Without End" (which my friend and I used to heckle the band to play every time we saw them between '83 - '87). There's even a bit of reggae with "Johnny Too Bad."

But it's "Dance With Me," a track they later revisited via re-recording and remixing several times throughout their roughly 7 year career that defines this album. Unfortunately, this release like the previous 2003 Track Records release contains the 1985 re-remix that is sonically much denser and suffers in comparison to the original 1983 album version which has only seen CD release on the original IRS Records Lords INS CD (catalog # 75039) which is long out of print and tough to find.

Otherwise, this release sounds very much like the 2003 Track Records remaster, however it does not include any bonus tracks which is unfortunate. A big plus though is the new liner notes and graphic layout of the booklet which includes several images of the various 12"/7" single sleeves and a few nice photos of the band from the era the album was recorded. Like the other 2 new 2013 reissues of The Lords albums, the slightly different UK album cover is represented in the tray graphic.

Everyone seems to think this is the worst LORDS cd but I disagree. Although there is very little continuity between the song styles, I think this was a very brave album for the band.
If you enjoy the recent never to be officially released LORDS CD "Hang On" you will not like "Sacred" at all. Gone are Treguna's brilliant bass lines, Nicks thumping surf drums, and Brian's stones style. All of which are the glue for SACRED.
This other reviewer must be Steven Marque because he keeps on trying to use his name to compare and yet has absolutely nothing in common with Stiv's talent. Shame on YOu Steven Marque. That is really pathetic and so is your "talent"
