Just bought the digital album of "The First Chapter" compilation album from 1987, its much darker than I thought, but this is really good for this band, since some say they are more pop than The Sisters Of Mercy, and I disagree, since The Mission formed the band , they kept The Sisters of Mercy as a non-gothic rock band, while The Mission transfered all the obscure sounds into them. This can be seen on this great compilation album.
Such a shame to say, but two newest albums are.. meh, just it's not THIS The Mission. It's just generic piece of rock. But I should to disagree with you @Winterisle, "Aura" is quite good - imo my third best album of this band.
@Jureiko I think it's one of their worst albums, similar to Aura or God is a Bullet. I think their best album is Carved in Sand. It's the point where The Mission started to move away from the "Sisters" sound of Gods Own Medicine and The First Chapter. Good shit.
@datCometchen: Don't be a pussy and say 'fuck' when you want to. Having said that, I was just asking an honest question, so the one should fuck off is you.
@Neue_regel_: I like Sisters alot so I will definitely look more into this band. It's funny because my mother used to listen to this band the whole time when she was pregnant of me.
