Bauhaus "Mask"

FORMAT

In 1981, Bauhaus had no competition in the field of goth music and could afford to experiment a little. There is the groove of "Dancing," a track that contains one of the album's two curious references to ballet dancer Nijinsky (the other is in "Muscle In Plastic"), and the creepy "Hollow Hills," its bass-driven skeleton decorated with distant peals of feedback and sparse drumming. The title cut features vocalist Peter Murphy singing over a backwards music track that adds considerable menace to the bizarre lyrics.
