Bauhaus In The Flat Field
The album starts out with some real odd bass playing. They often utilize this, so get use to it. Wasting no time they jump into a popping bassline driven by powerful drums and insanely dramatic vocals. Peter Murphy pushes his voice to the limits on this LP showing that he has little to know restraints in his voice.
Bauhaus In The Flat Field he is pushing the songs into the depths of despair and agony with just sheer emotional power. It's really something to listen to. The opener is a fantastic track, displaying only a fraction of what the band is capable of though. The guitar plays it safe in the opener compared to other tracks. Take "Stigmata Martyr" for an example. At one point in the song, when Peter Murphy, I TG The Second Annual Report is either singing in toungues or in reverse, the guitar is doing something out of this world.
Nouvelle Vague Couleurs Sur Paris kind of sounds like demented birds chirping out of rhythm.
I don't know really how to describe it. It paints such a vivid picture in the listener's mind though, as does every song. Bauhaus In The Flat Field seems to me as the album progresses, so does the strangeness of the music.
The track "St. Vitus Dance" no, Moondog Hart Songs not Sabbath features probably the strangest bass tone and accompanying bass line I've ever heard. The lyrics are equally unothodox as machines and dancing are often referenced. Possibly the most strange part of the song is the vocals. Towards the end, Peter just shrieks like an ape to the music, driving the song into pure musical insanity.
Bauhaus In The Flat Field a highlight from the album. The atmoshere present in this album is also fantastic. The raw production of the music makes the tracks scratch out at the infinitely black chasm of sounds swirling around your frail mind so much more intense and enjoyable. Nothing is candy-coated on this album. The lyrics, Bauhaus In The Flat Field music and William Parker Through Acceptance Of The Mystery Peace atmosphere are all as painful as can be, each instruments bubbles out of the mix sometimes causing needless distortion to question you sanity.
But that's most likely normal after sitting through this mess. Despair and depression are often expressed through music. But, not often is it displayed so effortlessly and effective like in this album. Maybe it's the lyrics that drive such emotions through the inpenetrable music.
