The Scream [Deluxe Edition] ~ Siouxsie & The Banshees

5.0 out of 5 stars Helter Skelter, 16 Sep 2014
Brilliant debut album by a group who went on to be much more after the departure of two of its founder members. It is a roller-coaster ride of thrashing guitars, banging drums and tortured vocals. The songs force a harsh mixture of isolation and extreme emotions into your ears and is still far from easy listening so many years later. In some ways I think the album is an audible projection of what Edvard Munch tried to present in his series of paintings of the same title. I prefer it to some of the later records but their popularity indicates I may be in a minority. Essential listening form the early days of Punk.

Not quite as slick as the later "Replicas" this is a synthesiser and guitar based journey into Numan's darker side. The arrangements are often quite stark and the lyrics more Cyberpunk than Punk and, although Numan's first singles owe a lot to The Pistols, The Damned, etc. this album is closer to heavy rock in places.
The themes are spread between loneliness: "Every Day I Die"
death: "The Life Machine"
isolation: "Zero Bars"
science fiction: "Listen to the Sirens"
and a brief flirtation with homosexuality: "Jo the waiter"
Not easy listening but an interesting first official album.

Gold plated, nice and long and much better than the cheap ones you can get from discount or Pound shops. They seem to have a nice positive connection in use and are a steal for the price.
