Muze PNote Drawn from the band's voluminous singles catalogue, A SLIGHT CASE OF OVERBOMBING is a Sisters Of Mercy greatest hits package arranged in reverse chronological order that also highlights the band's first studio recordings since the VISION THING album. It includes all three collaborations with Jim Steinman--"Dominion / Mother Russia," "This Corrosion," and "More." The latter is a masterpiece of bombast.
Muze PNote The new tracks are "Under the Gun" and "Temple of Love (1992)." The first, a duet with ex-Berlin vocalist Terri Nunn, is a semi-successful attempt to duplicate the sound of the Steinman collaborations. The second cut, a re-recording of the Sisters' seminal 1983 single "Temple of Love" in the light of the band's harder, more metallic sound, is a good idea. Adding the impressive vocal acrobatics of Yemenite singer Ofra Haza is a stroke of genius. A SLIGHT CASE OF OVERBOMBING is a fine place to enter the world of the Sisters.

Artist Overview

The definitive post-Bauhaus Goth band, the Sisters of Mercy embarked on their dark journey in the mid-1980s, led by cavern-voiced singer Andrew Eldritch. An internecine rift resulted in legal action, with two members of the band breaking off to form the Mission U.K. Eldritch and company subsequently became more popular than ever, breaking through worldwide with 1988's FLOODLAND. Though the '90s found the group largely disappearing from view, their influence on subsequent waves of Goth rock is enormous.

- 3 Stars - Good - "...The gloominess becomes wearing but big cheese Andrew Eldritch can often pull it off by sheer force of's hard not to accord [the Sisters Of Mercy] a certain respect..."

- Fair Plus - "...All is not fear and pestilence....Goth finally steals itself from Leeds [on A SLIGHT CASE OF OVERBOMBING] and becomes a colossus of clattering drums and deathspell Gregorian chanting....Coffee morning house guests will recoil in horror..."
