4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Raw British Rock with Overdrive Set to 11, 21 Nov 2000
This review is from: Electric (Audio CD)
A highly criticised album at the time because of its departure from the haunting Goth Rock of the (Southern Death) Cult's previous material. It was seen by many as a blatant move towards the more commercial metal scene and a demonstration of awful millinery taste. However, the album contains some of the best examples of crunchy n' punchy British metal in the form of Love Removal Machine, Li'l Devil and Wildflower. The much covered Born to Be Wild is true to the original and well worth a listen if you don't own a copy of Steppenwolf. The songs are short, gritty and fuelled with kerosine. Billy Duffy's guitar riffs are strong yet incredibly simple. OK this album is an aural dictionary of rock cliches but for all the stick they get, The Cult pull it off better than most. That said if you dont like too many Baby Baby Baby Babys a la Robert Plant style then this is definately not one for you.
