Atmospheric. The album has a consistent tone, and despite all the singles, this is the peak of gothic-version Cult. It is almost a concept album, lots of elemental / weather references, missing people, returning, spirituality. Whereas by the time of the Ceremony album the same lyrics came out as "the same schtick all over again". Astbury doesn't over-sing, whereas in later albums he seems to feel the need to fill every gap.

A good album, psychedelic oriented hard melodic rock.Nice songs on this and a characteristic atmosphere and guitar sound all over the album.

From LedZep
Really fantastic album, so many great singles and it doesn't even feel like a singles album... It creates the atmosphere and is coherent which is unusual for the "singles" albums

An album of good consistent songs with one stand out track - She Sells Sancroary. I enjoy this album but I've not been driven to seek out any other Cult album.

From KGB
Nothing mind-blowing but "Rain" and "She Sells Sanctuary" hint that The Cult could have been something better with a little more application... or taste.

feels like a mixture of u2 and the mission. quite enjoyable music but something is missing. couldn't quite catch what it is... maybe strangeness?

At least at this point they still had their own sound. After this, they join the hair metal masses. This album is OK - good guitar driven rock.

From jhuik
Lots of smoking guitars and seering vocals here, before the band got too polished and poppier. Rain, Brother Wolf and Sanctuary make it worth your while.
