Best of what, one may ask? Well, of Rare Cult, itself a limited edition six-CD box set designed with the hard-core fan in mind. If your principal memory of The Cult, however, is "She Sells Sanctuary", you'll be pleased to know that it's included here in an extended version. A bunch of other rarities and B-sides, five of which are not included in the box set make this a must-own for stalwart fans as well. --Genevieve Williams

for those who cannot afford the luxe but superbe 6 (or even 7) CD box by Beggars Banquet, this album is a nice compilation (but not an introduction) to the studio-albums from "Dreamtime" to "Ceremony" and "the Cult", with non-album singles, outtakes, alternate recordings, for a part not even on the box found. The Cult shows to be a master of songwriting and performing.In between the recordingsessions of 6 albums, the band found time and oppiortunity to record some other great songs. In the vinyltime relaesing was limtied to 18/20 minutes per side, a lot of material couid not be presented to the public. This album can easly stand at it self, besides those official albums and offers a wealth of lesser or unknown songs. Those like "The River", "Spanish Gold", "Faith Healer", "Lay Down Your Gun" and "Resurrection Joe" proof the strenght of the band at the peak of their height. Recommended!

having released 6 terrific good studio-albums, rangin from "Dreamtime", "Love", "Electric", "Sonic Temple" through "Ceremony" and finally the self titled 'The Cult" (by which time the band consisted only of Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars) the Cult have recorded in the meantime so much other stuff, a real wealth of material, which cannot be found on those regular albums. Only on a lavish 6 (or even 7) CD boxset. This album is therefore not a "real" album nor a compillation album in the normal sense either, having a selection of tracks already known from other recordings. It shows the huge talent and output of the singer and guitarplayer as songwriters and performers. There are extended versions of the best known songs, alternate takes, non-album singles but for most part outtakes of those albumsessions, which showcase how creatively talented the band was at that time. There are plenty of beautilful songs that would not have misstood on the albums but beiing in the vinylyears lacked the space to be included and must have left out. Like "The River" "Spanish Gold", "Lay Down Your Guns", "Faithhealer" (from Alex Harvey Band, one the very scarce coverversions by the Cult), "Bleeding Heart Graffity", "Love Trooper" "zap City" (both from the unrealesed "Peace" album [which today is available in combination with "Electric" ] and "Join Hands". For those who own (most of) the aforementioned albums this album is a delight and welcome addiction. For those interested in eighties rockmusic a must. Even for those who have the privelige of owning the boxset this album has some extra's outside that box. Very strongly recommended.

this serves as a taster for the six cd box set currently available & also contains five exculsive tracks not in the box set. this makes you realise what a prolific band the cult were and how much material they stockpiled. my only critisism of this disc would be that it sounds a little disjointed having the songs out of chronological order as they are in the box set so it is difficult to see the natural progression that their song writing took , however if the box set is eluding you then this makes a great introduction whilst you save up for it

If you like the "pumping, blow your head off" Cult tracks as opposed to the ballads and Zap City, Faith Healer, Little Face and Love Trooper are not in your collection then this is a must.
Thought I had all the best Cult before this (bar the elusive £75 set), I was wrong.

This is a must ave for all cult enthusiasts a couple of lesser known tracks make up good cross section of what the cult are about.

This is good investment, if you can' t afford (Or at all get!) the full packet of the six cd box. It showcases, how much The Cult have had to offer over the years, and that there isn't always room for all the glorious material even with aprox. 80 minutes at their disposal. Listen to the long version of "She Sells Sanctuary", pure joy!

I'm not a big fan of The Cult, by any means. In fact, I only bought this for She Sells Sanctuary. However, after a few listens I realised that there are a number of trong tunes on here. It's not my usual kind of music, but the tunes are strong enough, memorable enough and with enough variation that I won't begrudge it a listen. I'm told by a friend and fan of theirs that the selection of tracks on offer is very well chosen indeed. So, if you're at all interested in the band then this may be the thing for you.
