is the third studio album by English The Sky's Gone Out gothic rock band Bauhaus, released in 1982 by record label Beggars Banquet.
Release [ edit ]
The Sky's Gone Out was released in October 1982 by record label Beggars Banquet.
The initial limited edition of the LP included the live album
as a bonus. The compact disc reissue of the album dropped the run-out audio from the final track "Exquisite Corpse" and the vinyl edition contains a short recording of drummer Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape Kevin Haskins reading from the play . The Canadian edition of this album also contained a free Baal 12" vinyl single featuring " Ziggy Stardust", " Kick in the Eye" and " Lagartija Nick". This version did not have the distinctive artwork from the US and UK editions, but was instead an enlargement of the cover art from the " Terror Couple Kill Colonel" single.
Reception [ edit ]
In his retrospective review of the album, Ned Raggett of
AllMusic wrote, "On balance it's quite a fine album, but unlike it misses the infusion of a more positive energy, and simply doesn't gel as perfectly, more notable for individual songs than as a whole." Mask [1 ]
In their feature on the album in 2001
described Alternative Press The Sky's Gone Out as one of the Top 10 essential goth albums. [2 ]
