Floodland is the second studio album by English gothic rock band the Sisters of Mercy. It was released on 13 November 1987 through Merciful Release and WEA, with Elektra Records handling the US release. After the release of the band's debut album, First and Last and Always (1985), members Craig Adams and Wayne Hussey departed the band, leading to the band's disbandment. As a result, band frontman Andrew Eldritch formed a side project, The Sisterhood, and recorded new material with them

The second Sisters of Mercy album, released November 1987. It reached on the UK album charts, and three hit singles were released from it: This Corrosion (September 1987, on UK chart); Dominion (February 1988, and Lucretia My Reflection (June 1988, The band lineup on 'Floodland' was nominally Andrew Eldritch and Patricia Morrison. Morrison's musical contribution has been disputed,.

While the earlier Sisters releases were noisy, sometimes harsh affairs, Floodland is filled with lush production (thanks to Meat Loaf writer/producer Jim Steinman and the New York Choral Society) and lyric imagery that is both scary and glorious. The slower tracks, like "Flood" and "1959," are some of the best ethereal sounds goth has to offer, and the downright regal "This Corrosion" is one of the best songs of the genre. A definite milestone.

The sisters of mercy mmmm say no more. I never worried about stupid labels, I just put the album on and if it sucked, I threw it out. Also, Floodland has decidedly "morbid" and apocalyptic bent/themes running all through it, and Andy's voice, as always, is very much on the doomy side of things, that cannot be denied. to This Corrosion is clearly a "gothic" touch, at least. Does this help at all?

Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). The packaging is first-rate, however, with an attractive digipak and a booklet filled with pictures and an essay about the album, along with complete lyrics. The four bonus tracks (two of which were added to the original cd pressing of the album) are very welcome, especially the epic twelve-minute full-length of 'Neverland'.

The The Sisters Of Mercy's second album was titled Floodland. Floodland and its accompanying singles This Corrosion, Dominion and Lucretia were preceded by a press statement. from Merciful Release, which can be found under A Short History. The album was accompanied by videos for This Corrosion, Sandstorm/Dominion, Lucretia and 1959. In 1989, the video compilation Shot was released featuring all of. these vids. They are also included in the revised video collection Shot Rev .
