You know there was a time, (back in the eighties) when Asbury & the Cult theatrical over the top alter egos, really struck a cord with public. Not so any more, perhaps folk are more cynical these days.
Anyhow, I would probably describe this record as a "Lap of Honour" similar to Pink Floyds's "Division Bell". Not that it's a bad album; it just doesn't add anything new to their back catalogue. One of the reasons for this is using chuffing Bob Rock again, one of the most unimaginative producers ever. The Cult should have tried to get Rick Rubin (He worked on the Electric Album & "The Witch" one off single)
So in conclusion, If you a big cult fan, it a perfectly fine addition, but if you new to the works of the Wolf Child, I would go for "Love" or "Electric". Thankq & goodnight!
