Christ on a bike, I didn't think Ian Astbury could sink much lower than when I saw The Cult at the Leeds festival about nine or ten years ago (hilariously white trainers, giving shout-outs to "my man Eminem" and all) but the vocals on this are fucking PAINFUL.

Christ on a bike, I didn't think Ian Astbury could sink much lower than when I saw The Cult at the Leeds festival about nine or ten years ago (hilariously white trainers, giving shout-outs to "my man Eminem" and all) but the vocals on this are fucking PAINFUL. I guess you could see this as the natural culmination of Boris's recent hair metal lovin' period (although apparently more Astbury-fronted material is going to be forthcoming) and they play their part reasonably well, aping the guitar sound of 80s heavy rawk, even if it's incredibly cheesy at times. Wata definitely hasn't lost her ability pull a cracking solo out of the air at a millisecond's notice and they're generally the highlights of this twenty minute mini-album/EP things, along with her take on The Cult's 'Rain'. Still, I can't see why you'd choose to listen to this over 'The Witch' or one of Boris's many amazing back catalogue moments.
