After a 3 year gap from the one of the band's creative peaks (being the Peepshow album) Superstition marked a radical change in Siouxsie and the Banshees sound, largely due to the unusual partnering of Stephen Hague as producer. Hague who seemed to be ubiquitous at the time due to his success with Pet Shop Boys and New Order had been overhauling the sound of some other punk and new wave throwbacks; Pere Ubu and Public Image Ltd. As was the case with those bands, this album sounds like an established artist being ordered to change its hallmark sound because the record company wanted some hits. As a result you get the radio friendly, up tempo, guitar pop typified by 'Shadowtime', 'Got To Get Up' and 'Cry' with catchy choruses and dance rythms typical of early 90s Pop. When you line it up against all of Siouxsie and the Banshees previous work it sticks out like a sore thumb. However there are some real highs, 'Kiss Them From Me' is one of the band's better singles along with the brooding 'Drifter' and 'Softly'. The excellent closing track 'Ghost in You' is up there with the best songs in the band's back catalogue. Those tracks alone may make it worthwhile but if you are a fan of 'Kiss In A Dreamhouse', 'Tinderbox','Hyeana' etc it may be a too radical and unnecessary departure.

Format: Audio CD
This is a polished pop-rock album set to 90s rhythms that are thoroughly integrated in the Banshees vision. Most of the songs are melodious like Belladonna on Hyaena or The Last Beat of my Heart on Peepshow. Superstition kicks off with Kiss Them For Me, the lilting hit about starlet Jayne Mansfield that comes with a catchy tune, buoyant dance beat and Indian drums. It is followed by Fear (of the Unknown), a typical edgy Sioux outing with a gothic feel.

The uptempo rock number Cry has atmospheric sound effects in the rhythm break & outro. Siouxsie goes torch on Drifter, a track with expansive soundscapes and a touch of tenderness. The enigmatic ballad Little Sister passes by soothingly and before you know it, you're in Shadowtime, a siouxcessful slab of psychedelia, a style that recurs in Silver Waterfalls which is even more enchanting with its sitar-tinged sound. Silly Thing is another tuneful ditty while Got To Get Up has an orchestral air & uplifting feel.

The atmospheric dirge Softly could have come from This Mortal Coil or the Twin Peaks soundtrack. Siouxsie's voice had lost none of its lethal bite, but here she becomes convincingly sensitive as she intones "Softly the moment has gone/So softly the moment had flown".

Format: Audio CD
Appears the pulse of creative effort finally went into the Creatures rather than the Banshees. This platter, between the opener and ender is flat and listless; as she tries to sing, rather than reach out and smother the listener. It begins however with a wonderful blast of "Kiss Them For Me," and then closes with the haunting "Ghost in You" which ironically are two pieces of sublime music. Each is up there with the best things they have ever done. In between however, ahem, it just unleashes a form of tedium or torpor, a type of mid temp rock as Siouxsie is left to croon some magic into a beating plod.

Many bands around this time began to "experiment" with being mainstream. The "Swans" produced "This Burning World" and Pere Ubu did "Cloudland" each dogged by a sense of vacuousness. Hague was responsible for producing two on this non hit list. He later went onto inflict the sheer drudgery of the Pet Shop Boys upon the world, a duo whose alienated existence lacks the pop irony they craved; as they are the personification of boredom. Each reminds me of office dividers, computers and staring at ebay or facebook and waiting for the clock to tick to 5.30.

Unlike most S&B fans, I discovered them with Superstition and the single "Kiss Them For Me". I had been a fan of bands like The Cure, Pet Shop Boys and others for years, but had never been exposed to Siouxsie. I remember watching MTV endlessly trying to record the video on VHS, and when I did, I played it over, and over, and over. I had never heard anything like it before. Needless to say I went back through every album, and every record after Juju is on my all-time favorite list. But Superstition will always be a special album for me, because it opened up my ears to a new band and sound, and that influence has stayed with me for over 20 years. The remaster quality is excellent and the spirit of S&B runs deep through all the songs despite their production sheen (which I appreciate). It's a sophisticated album full of smart and complex songs.

Classic Siouxie. This is my favourite album of theirs. Gothic, melodious and moody, not as punk as their earlier stuff.
