Customer Review

on 22 May 2012
I was expecting something more in the Born Into This vibe (which I like a lot) but this is an almost true return to The Cult's classic sound. The riffs (killers as always from Mr. Duffy) are there along with the unique Ian's voice; The Cult's seal. There are a few "modern" elements here and there (very few), some piano too (nothing bad with that but not usual in their catalogue), but still signature sound. I'm enjoying this at its fullest, pleasently surprised with this effort and looking forward for more LP's instead of "capsules". This is Rock 'n Roll, this is The Cult, and this is the weapon I would choose to rock the world. If you're a fan you'll be more than happy with it, I give it 4.5/5 stars.

OK, the sound. I own the vinyl release and it's so brickwalled that's is almost painful to hear, no dynamics whatsoever (still the music is good). The included "capsule" (white 12" vinyl, 45 rpm, with four previously released songs when they were into the capsule thing) sounds better, usually 45 rpm discs do, but also you can tell that recording/mastering were done differently. If you're going for the vinyl don't expect warmer/dynamic range, in fact it would be better to go for the cd or the download (included in the vinyl version).
