Children is the second regular studio album by the British rock-band The Mission. It was released in February 1988 by Mercury Records. Two singles were released from the album, "Tower of Strength" and "Beyond the Pale". A third single, "Kingdom Come", was scheduled but appeared as a promo-only. Singer Julianne Regan (from the band All About Eve) sang vocals on two tracks - "Beyond the Pale" and "Black Mountain Mist". The album was re-issued in 2007 with four bonus tracks.
Most bands usually wait two or three albums before the "big statement," but this is the Mission. Kicking off with one of the longest fade-ins in rock history, Children is a sprawling (hell, to not call any album that starts out with a seven-plus-minute "intro" song sprawling is just wrong), of-its-parts affair, with multi-layered arrangements,.

Mission - Children - LP Vinyl Album. Disc: 1. 1. Beyond the Pale. A Wing and a Prayer. 4. It was hands down the best album of the Mission's career and, if there was a better album released in 1988, I sure haven't heard it. I can only hope that, in this era of remastering everything, Polygram gives the Mission their due. Kudos all around. 2 people found this helpful.
