Arabian Nights the pun, echoes all the way to Dubai and beyond.
Spellbound deals with the psychological see saw of childhood, with the ultimate release from piety of elders, as they tumble down the stairs. Hypocrisy eventually finds its own level. This entranced many 80's student disco's with its dance infected drumming. Oh the memories.
Nightshift is the grope into the addiction to a leather fist, the written letter to the serial killer, the devil in black, the happy go lucky chap, who provides the sexual sustenance. Whilst Sin in my Heart sees the female top asserting itself over the male bottom; the grovel at the feet. Siouxsie is firmly back in control, grasping the reins of the power relationship.
Monitor; visualises those same feelings of power engaged in sexual voyeurism, watching someone else's pain, the new mass entertainment. Siouxsie's ambivalence neither demarcates angst or disapproval only an objectified knowledge, someone who gazes onto a scene. The music shifts into the flangedelia, the trademark early 80's sound with the discordant clang of the Scream, ringing in the dissonance. Head cut; is a return back to the gory days, the serial killer as an objetd'art, Siouxsie Dahmer, the crossbow cannibal.
The darkedelia tour de force is finally revealed as the Voodoo Dolly. Gathering all the previous themes together, childhood emotional collapse, S&M, love of serial killers, Siouxsie allows the parasitical mouth to feed on the flesh of her despair.Read more ›
The album kicks off with the gothic call to arms "Spellbound" with drummer Budgies unstoppable, almost millitary liike drum beat coupled with Steve Severins equally powerful bass playing, this song hits you like a ton of bricks. Also its on this track that a new presence makes itself known. Critically acclaimed Guitarist John Mcgeoch. While he has played with some of the best new-wave-punk bands (Magazine, Public image, Visage) its here that his true virtuosity as a guitarist shines through. His inventive yet subtle use of effects, coupled with the sparse, rythmic arpeggios add a whole new level to Siouxsies group.
The following tracks arent to be sniffed at either. "Into the Night" is a tour de force of Goth meets Rasta, as the sparse almost dub drumming of budgie comes together with John's choppy guitar twangs. Track 3 "Arabian Knights" is one of the best songs in Siouxsies entire back catalogue, as the powerful verse swirls into a chorus filled with emotion and melody, and her voice is on top form. But again its John Mcgeoch's uncanny technique that shines through. The rest of the album is of course brilliant with layer after layer of percussion and drumming blasting through the speakers. "Trick or Treat" standing out as perhaps an almost comical interlude. But anyway this is my favourite Siouxise album and feature breathtaking musicianship from the band and some fantastic melodies.
Essential for any self-respecting goff out there, or those who arent musical morons...
Mcgeoch was a very inventive guitarist and this album perhaps demonstrates his best work; whether it be the onslaught on Spellbound, the peculiar plucking of Into The Light or strange effects used in the likes of Voodoo Dolly. However, there is much more to this album than McGeoch and plenty of other reasons why it's rated so highly in the Banshee discography.
Another notable musician here is Budgie, the drummer who joined on the previous album alongside McGeoch. Budgie is probably one of the best drummers of the past decades as his work here and even more notably with his and Siouxsie's side-project, The Creatures, proves. On Spellbound he provides a powerful beat during the instrumental interlude, adding further raw primitivism to the song. This tribal form of drumming is even more powerful on the rather sparse, final track, Voodoo Dolly and works very well along side Mcgeoch's guitar and Siouxsie's voice.
While the new musicians are eager to prove themselves, it is the origional members who almost take a step back this time. Severin in particular, is content in the background keeping every song tight and rythmic with his bass, while Siouxsie and her commanding voice soar alongside the instruments, complimenting, rather than overpowering them. There is noticable improvement to Siouxsie's voice at this point, which only embellishes the great soundscapes of this album.Read more ›

This, along with Kaleidoscope, stands as a really great album for the band. Arguably, it is their best, with Side A in particular churning epic song after epic song. Read morePublished 6 months ago by ReviewMonkey
Still one of my favorite albums ever, Siouxsie's third was about as good as the Banshees ever got on album. If you don't know it have a listen and you'll hear what I mean,Published 6 months ago by Tamsin Pertrucci
