Would someone please explain why Bauhaus is releasing a new album?
The reviewer from NPR reports what we all already know:
The record's opening track is a pretty un-Bauhaus-sounding, almost jaunty rock tune with a Taxman bass line called "Too Much 21st Century." From there, the band settles comfortably and effectively into its familiar, spare, rock-in-a-minor-key gloom grooves. Unfortunately, in the second half, the songs start to dissolve into slow, maudlin, melodramatic self-indulgence.
Is there anything more pathetic than elderly Goths trying to relive the glory days of 1982? Nope.
