Soft Cell’s 2002 reunion album ‘Cruelty Without Beauty’ has been reissued in new expanded and remastered 2CD and digital formats, as well as on double-vinyl for the very first time. More information and order details below, and you may also want to check out our EBAY BARGAINS PAGE for special time-limited offers.
Long regarded by many fans as an overlooked masterpiece, the album features a lyrical outlook that was as true to Soft Cell’s maturity and perspective back in 2002 as it is relevant and accurate to the world situation in 2020. Harshly honest, fatalistic and bleakly humorous, Cruelty Without Beauty also preserves the band’s highly distinctive and edgy sound, and stands alongside their greatest work.
The new version includes tracks originally destined for the album, but for various reasons not on the final cut. It also includes brand new 2020 versions of album highlights Monoculture, Together Alone, Darker Times and Last Chance, updated by Dave Ball. Also included are a number of unreleased live versions of album tracks, plus rare remixes.
The album includes the singles Monoculture and Soft Cell’s cover of Frankie Valli & The Four Season’s classic The Night, which became the band’s first Top 40 hit since since 1984.
