Overview

More varied than its predecessor, Electric, Sonic Temple finds the Cult trying several different metal styles, from crunchy Electric-era '70s grooves and the fuzzy, noisy psychedelia of Love, to mellow ballads and commercial '80s hard rock. Not all of the experiments work, as some of the songs lean toward ponderousness, but enough of them do to send Sonic Temple into the Billboard Top Ten, due to the exposure provided by the hit single "Fire Woman."

Sonic Temple, the fouurth album by this great band, is nothing but blistering rock and roll. If you haven't heard of The Cult before, Sonic Temple is the greatest place to start.

Incredible album here. If you overlooked it the first time, give it another shot. "Edie (Ciao Baby)" is one of the greatest songs ever written, but the album also boasts some hard rockers like "Sweet Soul Sister". Billy Duffy's riffs are in top form on this album. Combine that with the sheer compelling force behind Ian Astbury's vocals, and "classic" is not an overstatement.
