Album Review

Say what you want about the Cult, a band who will certainly go down as one of the most schizophrenic in rock history, but singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy could sure write a great tune. Just glance at a few titles included on the greatest-hits collection Pure Cult: The Singles 1984-1995: "Edie (Ciao Baby)," "Love Removal Machine," "She Sells Sanctuary," "Wild Flower," "Fire Woman," "Rain," "Lil' Devil" — you get the picture. Spread haphazardly across the disc (rather than in chronological order), each track's uniqueness is even more evident, further showcasing the Cult's fearless creativity. Early songs such as "Spiritwalker" and "Resurrection Joe" will surprise most fans with their class and maturity, while later cuts like "Wild Hearted Son," "Heart of Soul," and "Coming Down" (from their disappointing latter-day albums) are given new life when viewed on their own merits. Boasting almost identical track selection to another Pure Cult collection (including a few rare outtakes) of a few years earlier, this one's merely a tad more career-spanning complete, but the small differences aren't worth stressing over.

Customer Reviews

High Bidder for "Sanctuary"

"She Sells Sanctuary" is an 80's gold standard. The beat and guitar tapenade evoke the manias of that decade. The 1980's were a fast lane and The Cult took us on some nice little rides.


Pure rock that just happened to hit during the new wave synth-pop 80's (of which I am a huge fan). But when I really wanted to party....I would crank this up way, way loud. You won't be disappointed.

Real Rock N' Roll!

The Cult was one of the few great rock bands to come out of the 80's. I suggest buying the whole album. If you don't want to, then get "Love Removal Machine," "She Sells Sanctuary," "Lil' Devil," and "Fire Woman."
