ALBUM OBLIVION, PLAYGROUND RELEASE:
NOVEMBER 5, 2001 REVIEW: NOVEMBER 6, 2001
The Mission are back. And "Aura" is pretty much what you could
expect. Sentimental gloomy rock, very much like what they have
produced previously. Many of the songs echoes from albums like "Children"
and the earlier material. Come to think of it, it's really good!
The Mission are back. And I get very, very nostalgic. Ten years ago Mission
meant passion, love and storm to me. I was madly in love, and the band's
music was the soundtrack of my life at that time. It was just perfect.
The Mission are back. For all of you who have never heard them before, they
sound something like a mix of The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy and old U2. Crying,
making love and living out your life are things you should do to this music.
The Mission are back. And there are some truly superior songs on "Aura".
You should take a closer listen to the single "Evangeline", "(Slave
to) Lust", "Dragonfly" and the exceptional "Trophy/It
Never Rains". An odd thing is the resemblance between "Burlesque"
and Depeche Mode's "Dead of Night". Truly a coincident.
