Pure Cult: The Singles 1984-1995

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Say what you want about the Cult, a band who will certainly go down as one of the most schizophrenic in rock history, but singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy could sure write a great tune. Just glance at a few titles included on the greatest-hits collection Pure Cult: The Singles 1984-1995: "Edie Ciao Baby," "Love Removal Machine," "She Sells Sanctuary," "Wild Flower," "Fire Woman," "Rain," "Lil' Devil" -- you get the picture.

Boasting almost identical track selection to another Pure Cult collection including a few rare outtakes of a few years earlier, this one's merely a tad more career-spanning complete, but the small differences aren't worth stressing over.
