Amazon have withdrawn this reissue as there is a mastering fault on the disc. Track 8 has all of “Rawhead and Bloodybones” and then the first three seconds of “The Last Beat of My Heart”, followed by nine seconds of silence. Then Track 9 starts with the last six seconds of the fadeout from “Rawhead” before going into “Last Beat”. The album is being repressed and Amazon should have the corrected stock in the next three to four weeks.

To my eternal shame I was very reluctant to give this album and the band the time of day; my irrational prejudices were such that a friend took pity on me and showed me the errors of my way!

This person not only got me tickets to the Peepshow concert, but also bought me copy of the album. From the first track I was blown away, each subsequent track was a gem;

I believe it to be one of their more complex albums, and probably one of their most successful. Critics such as Q magazine wrote in its five-star review: "Peepshow takes place in some distorted fairground of the mind where weird and wonderful shapes loom." Most the music press, by and large, loved the album; NME said of it that the band had moved from Rock to Pop

I loved the `lilting reggae feel to the beginning of "Killing Jar", the only instruments were the guitar and a keyboard bass, coupled to this was Siouxsies' great voice. There was the majestic ballad of "The Last Beat of My heart". There are the more familiar, if not apprehensive feel to the rock music in "Scarecrow" and "Burn-Up. My favourite if I had to choose would be "Peek-a-Boo", I believe Melody Maker, best summed it up by saying "Peek-a-Boo" `highly acclaimed' and called it "quite the most astounding British record" of 1988, and "a brightly unexpected mixture of black steel and pop disturbance'

A real classic album and a real must in anyone's music collection and hence my five stars.

This is my favourite of Siouxsie's releases that I have collected thus far. In comparison to other albums, this work continues the more melodic, less-punky style of the bands later albums (Tinderbox, for example), as opposed to the harsher, simpler (yet still brilliant) earlier releases.
The atmosphere that pervades this album is truly captivating. It conjures imagery of old country folklore and halloween, with its array of instruments from violins to accordions and harmonicas, and lyrics about scarecrows and carousels. Another reviewer called it a 'journey into fairyland', and I think that is a good summary of its magical style.
Standout tracks are 'Peek-a-boo', which might be too poppy for some, but has a really funky rythm, and an accordion tune to die for. The next two tracks 'Killing jar' and 'Scarecrow' enhance the old Victorian-esque feel and really get the album going. Another standout track is 'Burn-up' which builds up continously throughout until the end sees a breathtaking crescendo of harmonica and woodwind instruments. Finally, my favourite track would be 'Rhapsody', which begins on a dark rumbling note and builds up into one of the most driving, dramatic and passionate songs I have ever heard, with a full ensemble of instruments and Sioxsie's soaring, commanding voice as enchanting as ever.
This is an incredible album owing to its unique dreamland atmosphere and brilliant integration of a whole range of instruments. Therefore, fans of the earlier punk style might not like it (admittedly, I was shocked when I first played it - but pleasantly) owing to the sheer musical grandeur, but I feel that unless one is a total early-Siouxsie diehard, her cooing lyrics and that quintessential Banshee style should win you over. Pricless.

This is the album that converted me to S&TB many years ago. I loved the sinister thread running through the tracks, particularly "Carousel" & "Rhapsody". If you are already a fan of Siouxsie, this album may be a little too commercial for your tastes. Then again, it shows a smooth move towards the slinkier side of their music. Personally, I love it and find it very atmospheric - and it was good enough to make me go and buy their previous albums too!

Later Siouxise appeared to have been overtaken by everything else swimming along in her tidal path. Only now after the pulse of creativity has finally receded, these albums appear to have a cadence - as this sailed on by when it was released.

Initially pointing the way in the late 70's, she cut an insular groove, wrapped up inside her head were disturbing images of relationships of thrown broken plates and cynical power plays - Love in a Void and Happy House. So she had a particular psychological truth displayed in her songs, misses with the incessant crooning of mainstream schmaltz which rested upon a form of emotional blandness of ....love is...

But this form of kitsch, never outlined what it is not...

This opens with a rich deep psychedelic tonality, wafting as a pungent incense curls through the air, to conjure up, not the wan days of a punt down the Cam, but the ritual sacrifice of a small creature supplicated before a higher beast - as he beats his leather wings in perfect unison - an unhappy clapper. Wrapped in layers of psychic delight, (wait until the hidden goods arise) each track brims with her acute imagination, an insight long since lost in popular music, as she upholds a psychic dagger of self destruction. Sad fact is most people rush to get their lives over with and this album is a type of peepshow onto this phenomena.

An accordion introduces her entrance as the vocals rest upon a mournful lilt, wrapped in a rich bouquet. Within the Killing Jar she pours out a lush content to reveal at the centre of her life, a bitter sweetness. All the songs have a dark inflected imagination. Whilst the outward pretence is an act of external manners and internal sedation, her take is more confrontational.
