Biography

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

As the 'Classic Albums' DVD's and the TV programmes also showing them on the Biography Channel testify, every band, despite other releases being excellent/superb, seem to have one barnstorming album which fires it into the 'classic' status. And 'Love' is another one which desperately needs adding to this 'Classic Albums' series and that 'rock hierarchy' status it so richly deserves. It probably seems tragically unfair to other would-be guitarists (or even the famous)that Billy Duffy was blessed with so many 'to-die-for-riffs' in his life, not only with The Cult as a whole, but moreso on this album. I mean, 'She Sells Sanctuary' is just so darned haunting, and its sales and now legendary status on the outside of this album make this worth adding to the collection for this track alone. And yes, it is haunting, and then it quite simply just 'goes-for-it;' and Ian Astbury's lyrics might not actually mean diddley-squat, but it doesn't matter; they're simply oh-so-right for this song. But as it was a single please don't pick it out as 'the one to play,' the whole album and every song on it classic and gem-like in its entirety. A 'must-buy' for every self-respecting rock fan, no contest!

Love is the best album to come from this truely underated and gifted band. The title track is by far my favourite track they have ever done. Billy Duffy's guitar solo on it has yet to matched on any other song ever!
Classing The Cult as goth has nothing to do with being narrow minded which I think another reviewer stated, they were goth and this is exactly how it should be. Ian Astbury's powerful, often mysterious at times, voice and the haunting music (Brother Wolf Sister Moon for example) all make for a brilliant album.
I have since seen Ian Astbury perform with The Doors and he is still as great today as back then but buy this and you'll get a feel for how he and the rest of The Cult were like at their best.

I cannot understand why I do not hear about this album in the press or on the net more. This is an absolutley amazing album - The Cult never really got back to this standard. 'Love' appeals to both goths, metallers, alternative fans, everyone! Even the pop charts couldn't get enough of 'Rain' or 'She Sells Sanctuary'. The guitar on this album almost swirls, and all the tracks have a dreamy, undulating quality to them ('Big Neon Glitter', 'Love'), with some stormy moments ('Phoneix'). The ballads are amazing 'Brother Wolf, Sister Moon' especially. The only slight problem with this album is the lyrics, which sometimes repeat too much ('Rain') but personally, this does not, in anyway, affect enjoyment for me personally. The album may be too gothic/alternative for some mainstream fans, but I would definitley reccomend this album over any of The Cult's other recordings, but still 'Electric', 'Ceremony' etc. are brilliant, just more mainstream.

Boy,its been a while since i had listened to this album, used to have it on vinyl, it was played to death! years passed and i guess if forgot...then i heard 'Brother Wolf Sister Moon' being played at a friends house one night... man, that was my favourite song... anyhoo, have now got this on cd and i would highly, highly recommend it to anyone who is in their 30's and can remember those good old day of The Cult, Bauhaus, Cure, Siouxsie... Its a timeless, ageless album which i rate more highly than any of The Cult's other albums. Its got soul and more importantly, its beautiful. Get it.

Format: Audio CD
Love was first released over 15 years ago, yet those who gave it a chance still rave about it now. Known for their AC/DC - Aerosmith hybrid days of massive commercial success (Electric, Sonic Temple), The Cult produced Love in one of those transition periods that will never be recreated and show a timeless record of a time of creative genius.
Still loved as a conventional album, Love is an obscure concept album based on simple lyrics showing a youthful intensity, hypnotic rock riffs and simple rythmns. The result in an immersing journey through classics like Nirvana, Brother Wolf:Sister Moon, Rain, Hollow Man, and Revolution to the classic She Sells Sanctuary which is never the same when not slotted neatly into the perfect groove in Love. Black Angel is a worthy epilogue.
The exact nature of the concept is open to debate, you'll form your own opinion. All I know is that it gave me a valuable escape at a dire time in my life and 13 years on reminds me that the indefinable 'it' which makes a damn good album into something beyond is rare, but exists, if only for a fleeting moment.
Six stars is not enough.

This still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1985. This is one of the key albums of the 80's which broke down the barriers and proved that guitars aren't all bad. Contains the classic singles She Sells Sanctuary, Revolution and Rain, but the rest shouldn't be overlooked either. Phoenix is pure psychdelia with Wah-Wah's a plenty and Brother Wolf is chocca full of emotion. Not a bad song on it.A serious step on from predecessor Dreamtime (Billy Duffy had learnt how to play the twiddly bits!, Ian's voice was much richer) and a stepping stone onto the harder rock of Electric.
