EDITORS’ NOTES

The thrill of the open road and the stench of gasoline fill Andrew Eldritch's third studio album as The Sisters of Mercy—the 1990 follow-up to Floodland, one of the preeminent gothic-rock albums of all time. Hard-rocking riffs take center stage, sometimes tempered by New Wave synths ("Doctor Jeep") or David Bowie–meets–country vibes ("I Was Wrong"). But the real hits are soaked in Eldritch's brooding, high-octane hedonism—the hard-driving "Vision Thing" and the violin-and-piano-soaked club track "More" are darkly blissful deathrock.
