NME wrote: ” ‘A Kiss in the Dreamhouse’ is a feat of imagination scarcely ever recorded. It’s breathtaking. Somehow, a bold assurance of intention has met with a hunger for experimenting with sound to expand an already formidable group of songs into pure, open-minded ambiguity. The flesh of the song will balloon out or contort into unimaginable patterns, indecipherable echoes volley between the walls of the recording, glassy, splintered tones pierce the luxuriant sheen of the mix. Repeated listens trick the sense of balance; tremendous risks are taken.”
My experience: their most mystifying and compelling albums ever to my ears. Siouxsie became the superior queen of gothic grandeur and went with the fabulous Banshees (including the late, great guitarist John McGeoch) on a mind-boggling journey…
Three Top Tracks: Slowdive / Melt / Cascade

* SLOWDIVE hypnotic drive, stunning beats

* MELTgloomy majesty
