5.0 out of 5 stars A band at their primitive best., 14 Jan 2003
This review is from: Juju (Audio CD)
Forget all those useless tags [punk, goth, etc] that people always use when trying to pigeon-hole this band. The beauty of the group is that they constantly reinvented themselves musically and image wise without ever losing their unique spirit and essence. Juju is a near perfect offering and ranks alonside Kaleidoscope and Peepshow as ,in my opinion,one of their best incarnations. Here you have exquisite guitars, thumping drums, moody atmospherics and playfully dark lyrics. Add to this Siouxsie's key defying,commanding voice [crooning, howling, whispering] and you've got the stuff of [bad] dreams. Each track is a gem in its own right, and put together make a very satisfying whole. Halloween, Nightshift and Voodoo Dolly are standout classics, and Arabian Knights is my favourite single of all times. Siouxsie and The Banshees in tip top form.

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest Siouxsie album ever, 9 Aug 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Juju (Audio CD)
This cd shows sioux's enormous talent at creating dark and spine tingling words and melodies. light the candles and joss-sticks and, lie back and enjoy the catharsis. I defy you not to be moved. Fantastic, genius need I say more. if you only have one Sioux lp in your collection, then this should be it, but having them all would be better & I guarantee you will play nothing else. What took you so long?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real McCoy, 14 Feb 2004

This review is from: Juju (Audio CD)
Picked this up cheap on a tip never having listened to the band before and was instantly impressed. Fantastic heavy drumming which is used for more than just backing-think of the line 'throw them down the stairs' where drums repeat the image-and fantastic, weird guitar playing, trebly and sharp, plus of course, THAT voice. A very dark and inventive album that puts lots of contemporary bands to shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great aggressive album, 11 Feb 2001
This review is from: Juju (Audio CD)
I listened to this album on many night journeys from London to Bristol and so fitted perfectly with the darkness. It is a fab jagged and aggressive album full of great tunes. More the punk end of their work than the pop end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 3 Feb 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Juju (Audio CD)
I have always loved Siouxsie and the Banshees, they were my favourite band for a long time, but I had not played anything by them for many years. So coming back to JuJu reminded me just how incredible they were at the time and while it is 'of it's time', JuJu sounds as great now as it did back in 1981. Definately the best album The Banshees made. If you only have 1 Banshees CD in your collection, make it this one. Forget the goth label, they may have accidentally created the goth scene, bu they were never a goth band.
