In The Flat Field
Bauhaus' album In The Flat Field. Available here on Bronze Colored LP, Standard LP and CD.
Few debut albums ever arrived so nearly perfectly formed; that 'In The Flat Field' practically single-handedly invented what remains for many as the stereotype of goth music - wracked, at times spindly vocals about despair and desolation of many kinds, sung over mysterious and moody music - demonstrates the sui generis power of both the band and its work. This said, perhaps the best thing about the album isn't what it's supposed to sound like, but what it actually does - an awesomely powerful, glam-inspired rock band firing on all fours, capable of restraint and complete overdrive both, fronted by a charismatic, storming frontman.
