The Mission U.K. - Aura (cd ripped, mp3 320). 2001.

   Aura is the ninth studio album by The Mission. After some goth pop albums that failed to earn the goth fans, the band returns with a pure gothic rock album.


With the spirit of "Serpent's Kiss" playing around its intro guitars, and an anthemic quality that cannot be ignored, the opening "Evangeline" insists from the outset that the reborn Mission are not here to simply make up the numbers.


Aura sounds like the greatest-hits album that never was, a succession of brilliantly conceived ghosts that reassemble all the Mission's proudest moments, then fashion something dynamically new and pure from them. True, "Cocoon" does glance in the direction of the Cure for its bassline, and "(Slave To) Love" wallows in that same discomfortingly sexually implicit trough as Masque's "Heaven Sends You". From start to finish, it's The Mission back at the starting post. (from Allmusic).



Enjoy this excellent work of gothic art here
