Cabaret Voltaire - Red Mecca (1981)

Red Mecca is the most important and most praised album recorded by the industrial band from Sheffield, UK, called Cabaret Voltaire. They recorded and released an incredible amount of albums, as a lot of industrial acts from the early 80s did, like Clock DVA, Throbbing Gristle and Coil, and they explored the likes of dub and house in their music as well.

This album is far from flawless and I think a lot of industrial music can be pretty boring at times, but still this album has some unknown quality that makes me come back to this band every time again. I own this album on vinyl and if I spin this record, I always become moved by the haunting qualities of the vocals on this album. I recently coined a term with a friend of mine, called Monster Vocals and I'd like to stuff this album into that category as well.
