The Cult- Love
I like The Cult alright, but never that big of a fan. The past few years when they've come through Austin, at first I was like, "oh cool", but then I'd never go and never cared.
The way I see it with The Cult, they had three albums that really mattered. This one, which is great, Electric which is not bad, and Sonic Temple which is terrible. I really do think that "Edie (Ciao Baby)" is one of the worst songs of my generation. I despise that song!
But on the flip side of that, I think "She Sells Sanctuary" is the best song they've ever written and a strong reason why I love this album.
I wasn't aware of this album when it first came out. Electric was my introduction to The Cult and I was rocking that one for awhile which made me get this one. But it was quickly obvious which was the better album. Yeah the one without the cover of "Born To Be Wild". This is the only album I have by The Cult. I may be interested in getting Electric, but I won't go hunting for it. If someone wants to try and convince me to listen to Sonic Temple again, I'm all ears. I'm sure it'll still suck though.
Here's a video of "She Sells Sanctuary". Hilarious that the dude who posted it includes song lyrics. Ha!
