Siouxsie - Mantaray

Shedding career-spanning partner Budgie, just-Siouxsie musters a 
solid solo release sure to please fans of both the Banshees and the 
Creatures.  While pulling obvious pages from each band's history, the 
disc is surprisingly fresh and vibrant.  The album starts strong as 
Siouxsie belts out "Into a Swan," and "About to Happen." These hard-
hitting and club-ready songs are enough to give the Creatures "2nd 
Floor" a run for its money.   She follows with "Here Comes the Day," 
in a Cabaret-gone-oh-so-wrong jaunt as only she can deliver. Fans 
have been longing for this ever since the song "Peek-a-Boo" caught 
their ears in 1988.  The momentum holds with the nasty groove 
"Loveless."  But aside from meeting her followers' lofty 
expectations, the real surprise comes as the album twists into some 
sultry, down-tempo numbers reminiscent of Lamb's fretless bass 
arrangements or Portishead's "Glory Box."  Siouxsie's voice is sultry 
and sensitive, dipping in and out of swimming strings and shimmering 
countermelodies for the song "If It Doesn't Kill You."  These tender 
tracks are simply among her best works to date and cinch the deal: a 
must have for any Siouxsie fan. - Adrian James
