Crackle - The Best Of

back in stock 'crackle' is the second of bauhaus' greatesthits albums following the importonly 19791983 the major difference between the two sets is that 'crackle' eliminates most of the cover versions that appeared on the earlier collection the track listing draws from bauhaus' entire careerfrom the defining first single 'bela lugosi's dead' all the way through 'she's in parties' and the title track of the band's final album 'burning from the inside' all tracks have been remastered this is especially evident on the band's earliest work 'dark entries' and 'double dare' are afforded a cleaner sound adding to their power the lone cover included is a version of 'ziggy stardust' a david bowie classic that clearly influenced the band though they will always be labeled as founding forefathers of the 'goth' rock movement bauhaus were never constrained by the label 'terror couple kill colonel' features a gentle swaying groove 'silent hedges' is built on a foundation of acoustic guitar and a chunky distorted bass line 'spirit' features dueling guitars and a harpsichord the collection concludes with one of the band's most emotive tracks 'crowds' a pretty pianobased song wherein tortured vocalist peter murphy wonders 'what do you want of me'
