Blue Sunshine [Deluxe Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Brendan Swift
This one-off collaboration between the Cure's Robert Smith and Siouxsie and the Banshees' Steven Severin resulted in an eccentric, and at times incompatible, mix of psychedelic sounds wrapped around alternative '80s pop. Writers Smith and Severin's more eccentric tendencies are as likely to evoke pictures of a carnival as a funereal march, but the backbone rests largely on tightly constructed tunes with occasional forays into the experimental. Jeanette Landray sings the majority of the tracks, while Smith takes the lead twice among a smattering of instrumentals. Standout tracks include the Middle Eastern-twinged "Orgy" and the more conventional "Mouth to Mouth." Smith's ...

All Music Guide - Brendan Swift
This one-off collaboration between the Cure's Robert Smith and Siouxsie and the Banshees' Steven Severin resulted in an eccentric, and at times incompatible, mix of psychedelic sounds wrapped around alternative '80s pop. Writers Smith and Severin's more eccentric tendencies are as likely to evoke pictures of a carnival as a funereal march, but the backbone rests largely on tightly constructed tunes with occasional forays into the experimental. Jeanette Landray sings the majority of the tracks, while Smith takes the lead twice among a smattering of instrumentals. Standout tracks include the Middle Eastern-twinged "Orgy" and the more conventional "Mouth to Mouth." Smith's distinctive warbling on the first-class "Perfect Murder" takes the album directly into Cure territory, as do the instrumentals that could equally find a home on Seventeen Seconds. While musically diverse, the album's lyrics rarely stray from the dual themes of death and sex, furthering the gothic undertones so often heard in Smith's and Severin's previous work. Blue Sunshine's eclecticism makes this an interesting side note for longtime fans of the Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees, but a somewhat more inaccessible listen for others. [The 2006 reissue contains a bonus disc of remixes, alternate mixes, and demos that more than double the original running length of the album and present a definitive and complete look at the group's short history.]
