5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me Melt! 17 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
A beautiful little 9-track gem of an album, sadly too often lost in Siouxsie's backcatalogue. This is a floral and avante-garde sort of album, mainly due to the use of string instruments, on which we hear Siouxsie really discover her voice. Until you've heard this you've never heard Siouxsie sing. The album was written at a curious period in Banshees history; the band's line-up was what is largey considered the best (Siouxsie, Severin, Budgie and John McGeoch), the album was engineered by off-the-wall Mike Hedges, and most of the band were taking LSD. And it shows. The album is insanely brilliant. My favourite tracks are Melt! (possibly the sexiest song of all time. It gives me chills), Cascade and Cocoon.
This album can not be recommended highly enough. It is gorgeous. What more can I say? I adore it.

5.0 out of 5 stars glorious and gorgeous 13 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On Dreamhouse, the Banshees ended their first, seminal phase of gloomy, hard post-punk and began their second phase, of lush, poetic art-rock, of which this, sadly, was the first and best example. It was all downhill from here but this is the swooning peak of a near-perfect run of adventurous and enjoyable albums and singles. Although this has pop moments (its singles, though not big successes, were among their most beautiful and mysterious) its real joy is in the more experimental work (Obsession, all strings and tape effects; Cocoon is cocktail jazz played by Martians; the hypnotic, London-obsessed Circle). The Banshees never really reached these dizzying heights again, but you can see the cues here which sparked Siouxsie and Budgie's esoteric and exciting future as The Creatures.

This album, along with the previous album 'Juju', mark the high point of Siouxsie and The Banshees recorded output. Having said that, this album is quite a departure from its predecessor. It is rumoured that in between the two, Siouxsie underwent operatic training and the Banshees actually learnt to play their instruments. It is not surprising, therefore, that 'Kiss' is very much more tuneful, lyrical, and musically more accomplished than 'Juju', which still adhered firmly to the punk DIY tradition, albeit with a particular spin. So tracks like 'Green Fingers' make use of folky-type flutes, and 'Cocoon' has a distinct Jazz flavour. 'She's a Carnival' and 'Obession' mark the beginning of Siouxsie's subsequent career-long fixation with the fairground, the former lyrically, the latter musically.
The overall impression of the album is, therefore, the marriage of a kind of deeply British folk with the spooky, distinctly Gothic overtones that we associate with Siouxsie. It is a warmer album than many of her other efforts, and it is a good deal more consistent. Side 2, from 'Melt' to 'Slowdive', represents some of her best ever work. Though much of their later work remains inspired, unique and highly influential, none of the band's later albums match 'Kiss' for consistency, lyricism, and sheer gorgeousness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experimental Brilliance 24 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
From the hypnotic swirling start of Cascade as it morphs into an incessant deepening rhythm to the Violin drenched haunting dance track Slowdive with its breathy overtones this is a classic. This album has an array of stand out tracks. The previously mentioned Cascade kicks it into gear. Followed by the slightly psychadelic Green Fingers again showing their is more to the Banshees than expected and laying groundwork for their evolving image. The stalking tones of Obsession perfectly capturing the intent of the songs theme and conveying a feeling of a and demented stalker. She's a Carnival then turning up the mood and lifts you up as it tells its story of a party girl out of control. The repetitive train like rhythm of Circle impelling you to break the cycle of life where a parents behaviour becomes ingrained in the children and spreads down the generations. This song had a major effect on my life and as such stands out for me. Listen to it deeply and you may see why. Then after that we go into Melt which has an almost dreamlike feel which hides a darker message. It covers the cyanide tones with jasmine scents. Painted Bird which on here is merely good but comes into its own live. Cocoon has a jazz feel and foreshadows later work on Peek-A-Boo. Then we have the maddening violin dance of Slowdive. My favourite on the album showing the Banshees at their infectious best in my opinion. I even wrote a short story with this song as inspiration.

I don't think this album has a bad song on it. In my opinion Green Fingers and Cocoon are the weaker two but if they were on later albums like Tinderbox where I feel they fit better the company of Cities in Dust that would raise them up.

In all its an album of contrast and often jarring in a nice way.
