Album Review

This one-off collaboration between the Cure's Robert Smith and Siouxsie & the Banshees' Steven Severin resulted in an eccentric, and at times incompatible, mix of psychedelic sounds wrapped around alternative '80s pop. Writers Smith and Severin's more eccentric tendencies are as likely to evoke pictures of a carnival as a funereal march, but the backbone rests largely on tightly constructed tunes with occasional forays into the experimental. Jeanette Landray sings the majority of the tracks, while Smith takes the lead twice amongst a smattering of instrumentals. Standout tracks include the Middle Eastern-twinged "Orgy" and the more conventional "Mouth to Mouth." Smith's distinctive warbling on the first-class "Perfect Murder" takes the album directly into Cure territory, as do the instrumentals which could equally find a home on Seventeen Seconds. While musically diverse, the album's lyrics rarely stray from the dual themes of death and sex, furthering the gothic undertones so often heard in Smith and Severin's previous work. Blue Sunshine's eclecticism makes this an interesting side note for long-time fans of the Cure and Siouxsie & the Banshees, but a somewhat more inaccessible listen for others.

It just gets better!

I've always liked this album, as a long time fan of both the cure and siouxsie it is great to see it get such a comprehensive special edition, the best being the second CD (tracks 16 - 31). With the album being shown as Robert Smith first envisioned it with his vocals throughout the album. Absolutely brilliant.

!!!

i totally have to agree with the previous review - this edition of blue sunshine is incredible! it is completely worth buying the album again purely for the extra tracks. i have always been a fan of this project, and so it is exciting to find songs i hadn't heard before.. i just can't believe i never knew it existed until now. buy it buy it buy it!!!!!

perfected psychodelia

Struck me as the perfect album to trip out to... the wealth of instruments alone gives something new in every part of the stereo sphere ... delightfully constructed in as 'organic' a way as was possible at the time. Subsequent to the original vinyl, the cd featured the like an animal 12 inch and b sides.. and now finally, all the extra stuff we were never going to get... all in one wonderful package. A Must Buy... for siouxsie and cure fans... and anyone liking psychotropic medication and/or meditation i guess . . . . .

Biography

Formed: 1983

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s

Superstar side projects have always rattled around the music scene, one-off outings conceived for any reason you like — to scratch a creative itch, to fulfill a personal vanity, or simply just to confuse and confound an audience that has been growing far too complacent. Occasionally, however, it works. The art rock underground still thrills to the memory of the nights that Nick Cave, Marc Almond, Lydia Lunch, and Foetus came together as the Immaculate Consumptives in 1983; and the gothic crowd...
