Overview

Burning from the Inside [Bonus Tracks]

If The Sky's Gone Out felt like a collection of various recordings, Burning from the Inside really was one, due in large part to outside events -- Peter Murphy had fallen victim to a life-threatening illness, so the rest of the band began recording without him which, more than anything else, foreshadowed both Bauhaus' breakup and the trio's future work as Love and Rockets. As a result, two songs ended up on the album, the piano-led cinematic moodiness of "Who Killed Mr. Moonlight" and the sweet acoustic drive of "Slice of Life," with David J and Daniel Ash on lead vocals respectively. Furthermore, more songs from the earliest days of the band were dug up to provide material, the most notable and successful being the dub-inflected, heavily dramatic "She's in Parties," using filmmaking as a metaphor for romance and life, with Murphy's excellent lead balanced against a near-whispering chorus from the other two singers. The end result of all this was an album that was good in spots, but not as strong throughout as it could be. It betrayed the performing and writing strains that would soon cause Bauhaus to call it a day. As before, though, when the band members were on, they were on with a vengeance, such as the medieval folk dance "King Volcano" and the starkly beautiful "Kingdom's Coming." The ten-minute title track takes a good idea and stretches it out a little too long, but the concluding track, "Hope," follows it with a life-affirming, inspirational vibe that serves as much as a farewell to Bauhaus' audience as anything else. While imperfect, Burning from the Inside
