The Cult are an English rock band, formed in 1983. They gained a dedicated following in Britain in the mid 1980s as a post-punk and gothic rock band with singles such as "She Sells Sanctuary", before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as "Love Removal Machine". The band fuses a "heavy metal ... Read more in Amazon's The Cult Store

I'm so pleased that this is a KILLER Cult album! So many of my favourite bands have released disappointing albums of late but not these guys. This is pure Cult - an album of quality songs, great vocals, rockin' riffs and searing leads. There is a bit of everything on here but I'd say in terms of overall sound the album tips its hat towards "The Cult" and "Beyond Good & Evil" with even a bit of bastardised "Love" thrown in for good measure. It's a truly great album and I must admit that I expected a lemon at this stage of their careers. Bravo Ian, bravo Billy!

4.0 out of 5 stars return of the cult 1 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
8th studio album from uk band The Cult,every Cult album has been vastly different from its predecessor...this is no exception,The Cult do not follow trends or fads they make music that they like,i can hear bits of every Cult album in this record,"citizens" harks back to love,the single "dirty little rock star,fuses early cult with later cult," I assassin" is my favourite track,The albums ballad "holy mountain" see's ian go very deep almost like johnny cash,no big production here,"tigers in the sun" ridicules the recent war,The Cult do what they do...nobody will change them,if you like The Cult there is something in this for you.

I'd like to be able to give it three and half stars, but I can't. So I think it'd be unfair to penalise it and give it three. It knocks 'Beyond Good and Evil' into a ditch and if this is the start of them finding a foot hold again, this is a great starting point.

One thing though that long term Cult fans MUST get past first and that is that this isn't 'Electric'. They never bettered that in terms of the pent up fury, drive, edge and dark place they were at as a band and captured on tape, so park the comparisons and don't go looking for it.

On its own merits, this is a straight ahead modern sounding rock album. Ian Astbury is on top of himself and the articulation to his vocals is back and he sounds good again. Billy Duffy's guitars sound simply brilliant too and the whole production is spot on. Yes there is more than a healthy bite of other current day rock bands influence in there sound wise (Clutch without a doubt), but you can still hear it is The Cult playing the songs. That is the one thing from 'Electric' you can hear in spades on 'Born into This'. It's them playing. Where as 'Beyond Good and Evil' really lacked that.

Of course there are a couple of dodgy tracks on there without a doubt. Ballads just aren't 'The Cults' strong point, but lets face it, every grown up male rock star writes a couple a year no doubt so as long as you don't get hung up on them as a listener, you'll be just fine!

To sum up, a good sounding, guitar driven rock album that sounds bang up to date and should age well too, great riffs and the bonus is that it is The Cult coming out the speakers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just loved it!!!! 13 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a Cultfan since 20 years back listening to Tiger in the sun I just float back i time. I really hurt inside when I listen to this song, ist f**king 20 years ago I heard a song this good from The Cult! After Ceremony I thougt there was to much metal and loudness in their music, but this album really takes them back to their roots, the pure ROCK scene, and there here to stay ;) I can take a few not that good tracks as long as I get those wonderful songs like Tiger in the sun and Dirty Little Rocks... Wonderful!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give this album a little time.... 6 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album - it's taken several listens to appreciate this fact, but I've always been a believer that the best albums are 'growers'. This is another new direction for The Cult, but with some nods back to previous sounds of yester-year.
This is a much more organic sound, and frankly I know this will stand the test of time. It may be that new listeners to the band may not be attracted by this album, however at this point in their career I reckon The Cult are more interested in making an album that they can be proud of and which will satisfy their legions of devoted fans - I feel they can feel very satisfied with the result.
Please go ahead and buy this album if you're wavering with the thought of whether to or not, however be sure to give the music the time to seep into your mind and gradually take over, like it has for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Pure Cult 26 Sep 2007
By J. Bond
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a Cult album from the opening riffs of track 1 to the final riffs of track 10. From their first album Dreamtime to the most recent Beyond Good & Evil, the Cult have always remained unmistakable in their sound - This is no different - Put it on, Turn it up & Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best work for 15 years 20 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Was it worth the wait for the record deal and new album? Absolutely!! This album fuses together all of The Cults previous work in a more considered and balanced way, producing tracks which get better every time you hear them. The sound is that little bit raw which gives them the power missing from the most recent work which came across as a bit 'clinical' and biased for the US rock scene. You can hear how these songs will transfer well to the live shows as they showcase the talents of the band in the purest way.
Admittedly it took a few runs through to really get into the whole album but, by God, it's worth it. There are no weak tracks, each stands solidly on its own merits and each is varied.
The boys are back and back to their best. Can't wait for the tour.
