This Album got slated when it was released,but I bought it anyway. If you like Love and Sonic Temple then you will love what is on offer here. This is a great album,tracks like Earth Mofo and Wild Hearted Son are as good as Fire Woman and Sun King. This is an album that asks that you take time and listen,there is a lot of hidden beauty here. In songs like White and If true emotions awesome guitar and vocals,crying out to be heard. In Full Tilt it is a step back to the AC/DC sound of Electric,so there is something here for all Cult fans. I love this album,no matter what the music press said at the time,it has to be heard to be appreciated.

I just love this album. I am a life long fan. Therefore, if you are a fan yourself ,you already have this in your collection. If you have never heard of this band, then I suggest you buy all there albums, as being very biased, you can't go wrong. They are simply the best band in the world.
Rock on THHHHHHeeeee CCCCCCUUUUUULLLTTT.

This Album definately rates in my top 10 best of all time. It ranges from fast paced guitar solo filled rockers to lighters in the air singalongs. Tracks such as Earth Mofo and Wildhearted Son show why Duffy is rated so highly as a guitarist, and tracks such as Sweet Salvation really show off Ian Asterburys brilliant voice. If your into decent Rock music with good guitar solos and intelligent lyrics then give it a go.

This album deserves 4.5 stars but as I can't give that, I'm not downgrading it to 4! Ian and Billy had kicked booze and drugs into touch before they recorded this album so it's different, the wheels had come off a bit and they had time to reflect. As a result there are some more mellow moments onboard and Ian had the chance to go back to his American Indian ideas which consume the record. There are plenty of rockers of a similar vibe to those on Sonic Temple and the overall balance is superb. The last truly 'rock' outing from The Cult.

A wide sweep from their previous chart behemoth, Ceremony's differences sound more natural and slightly more substantial than the rocking swagger of Sonic Temple. That is not to say that it is a departure from their sound, more that it embraces it fuller, taking it forward. It is a mellower album and adheres to an almost 'concept' tone; that of spiritualism and personal progression. There are a number of excellent tracks here but it does not outshadow Sonic Temple really in quality.

The titular opener is great at setting the scene. It is reminiscent of 'Sun King' but has enough clout to be held as a classic i its own right really. 'Sun King' is better but 'Ceremony' still packs a wallop and is an excellent tune. 'Wild Hearted Son' follows as 'Fire Woman' did on their previous release. As with 'Ceremony' it is a similar song tonally and is (again) not as good but works perfectly. It's got a great chorus and a nice melody. 'Earth Mofo' is an ok track without being anything outstanding. It's slightly more upbeat and slightly more beatnik. 'White' is a fantastic song that is only let down by the noodly jam finish for 2 mins. Other than that it is uplifting, catchy, musical and quite excellent. 'If' is similar but not as accomplished and has harder edges. It is however still a great track.

'Full Tilt' is quite boring and could have been shaved in my opinion. It's rocky but lumpen and not that great fun. 'Heart of Soul' is another almost classic. It is a beautifully constructed piece of music and one of my favourites. 'Bangkok Rain' is as 'Full Tilt' - no cigar and a bit boring. 'Indian' is another slowed down strum fest that works far better than any up-tempo volume-botherers, which is where the difference to Sonic Temple comes in - this is a much mellower album once it gets going.

Saw The Cult live in 1993 supporting Gun's n Roses and listened to The Cult Ceremony shortly afterwards on tape and loved it. I've recently been listening to it again and love it just as much. Yeah Baby!
