3.0 goodErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | April 22nd 20

Sailing between martial post-punk and gothic new wave, this album truly is a rKaleidoscope with the additional electronic touches, without forgetting the core rbuilt by Siouxsie's vocals and Severin's bass. Yet, I feel the rock songs work much rbetter than the synth-based ones (eg Trophy is a great post-punk track), as the rmore electronic tunes almost sound like a prep for the next bands (New Order, Soft Cell come to mind). Not the best Siouxsie but still kewl to understand their evolution. 3.2

3.5 greatKaramazov | November 27th 12

I think this is the best Banshees album, definitely their most consistent. If the unlistenable "Hybrid" wasn't on the album, I would rate it higher.

3.0 goodMadBaron | April 24th 11

A much quieter and electronic based work by the Banshees, but laden with pointless tracks that don't seem to go anywhere, making it one of the group's weaker albums.

Bump

3.0 goodwunnsburgian | June 1st 10

there's a great variety of sounds, but it just doesn't flow as an album. Its awkwardness however, is interrupted with some gems (happy house, christine, red light)
