One non-Sisters album to listen to start to finsh

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

This Mortal Coil - It'll End In Tears.

An album I regularly listen to all the way through, nigh on perfect.
2019 - London London Brussels Brussels Stockholm Paris Utrecht
2020 - Leeds & Nottingham, so far anyway. And Frankfurt. And Manchester with huge thanks to Gothicbiff

Indeed, this album of Massive Attack is pure gold. I've listened it few months ago, after few long years, it still great, it did get old, sublime sound and production.

Oh hell, there are plenty such albums ... though not necessarily on repeat ...

I for one might begin with Raw Power by Iggy And The Stooges for today ...

The big ones for me are:

Television - Marquee Moon
Killing Joke - 1st
Christian Death - Catastrophe Ballet
Spiritualized - Lazer Guided Melodies

There's other bands that are better, even other LPs that are better, but these are the ones where the start-to-finish journey matters and is something special.

Chris Sheehan, Farewell Cruel Circus (I'm off to join the world). Beautiful, heart-rending, and poignant. Highly recommend.

Momus, Slender Sherbert. A reworking of his Tender Pervert album (and equally good).

Ladytron, Gravity The Seducer. I can listen to this over and over again, and it's at the top of the batting order when I travel.

Johnny Cash, At Folsom Prison.

Mötörhead, Ace of Spades. Unabashed, balls-to-the-wall, rock-'ard 'ead-bangin' choons.

Hawkwind, Hawkwind. Look into your mind's eye, see what you can see.

I've got most of his stuff, I think, but not that. It's funny you mention it, though: I've been listening to the old Starlings records while grading this morning.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Oh yes. I saw them last year on the Comeback. It was quite emosh.

Catastrophe Ballet, yes!

Adding 'The Race for Space' by Public Service Broadcasting because it is jolly fine. They performed it last week at the National History Museum, as it's the start of their 50th Moon Landing anniversary. They played in the Main Hall - that lovely Victorian gothy place with the skeleton of Hope the Blue Whale in mid air.

Go!

From the last couple of years, I would say the following trio are all killer no filler:

Then Comes Silence - Blood - the natural successors to the 80s/90s alternative/goth bands
Whispering Sons - Image - atmospheric, melodic but intense post-punk from groovy young Belgians
Sonsombre - A Funeral for The Sun - old skool goth FOTN style. New album out (more of the same) next week

The new Rosetta Stone album is also worth a listen if you missed Porl's Miserylab project about a decade ago.
