1982's THE SKY'S GONE OUT marks a stylistic midpoint in Bauhaus brief but spectacular career. The group released its first single in 1979 and disbanded in mid-1983. In comparison with their earlier, almost impenetrably convoluted literary references and effectively murky production, this album is lyrically more direct, musically more straightforward, and features vastly cleaner production. The first of these changes is exemplified in the album's second track, "Silent Hedges," with its "Going to hell again" chorus and in the bitter "All we ever wanted was everything, all we ever got was cold" from "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything."
