5.0 out of 5 stars Frightfully delightful Sept. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure why I keep coming back to this album. I guess it's just one of those things that you just can't describe but just really love. Yes, this IS gothic. Make no mistake about that. Dark, raw, disturbing and even satanic at times, Juju is definitely one of those albums whose lyrics deserve special attention.( "...sometimes I wonder, what goes on in your mind-always silent and kind, unlike the others."-from Night shift )
What makes this album so irresistable in my opinion is the fact that an album can be a classic example of dark, gloomy gothicity and yet still have upbeat, alterna-rock-type songs that you can sing outloud and dance to. Imagine belting out the lyrics to 'Head cut'( "...Shrunken heads under the bed...spit is turning, roasting, burning..." ) as though they were as tame as 'Walking on sunshine'. Every song is an anthem and an experience. From the sarcastic and fast 'Spellbound', to the creepy drone and mechanical-like sounds of 'Monitor', the goth classic, 'Night shift' with it's satanic lyrics and the grand finale, a hauntingly quiet and unsettlingly off-key fiddle type sound that slowly builds into a pounding tribal beat in 'Voodoo dolly' that finally builds into a manicly frantic pace with Sioxsie bellowing out," Listen to your fear!" before it slowly dies back down to a whisper into the distance. A wonderful climax and the perfect ending to a great cd. This cd proves that a a goth album can be chillingly dark and disturbing WITHOUT also being melodramatic and depressing like most other gothic stuff out there. This would be a great party album for the dark side or halloween party album for all you non-goths out there. If you enjoy darker songs of great depth and substance, give this one a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Siouxsie, you could do no wrong with this album! March 10 2004
By bridget
Format:Audio CD
Juju. What can I say about this album? Maybe, in my humble opinion, their greatest album ever made? Juju came out in 1981, but it still holds up even today, maybe better then these overproduced crap nowadays. The album starts with Spellbound, a fast paced, sonic masterpiece with cryptic lyrics. Then comes Into The Light, with repeating lyrics but with an earnest touch to it. Monitor is a perfect rock song with an upbeat sound and great lyrics. But the big "goth" three on this album are Night Shift, Sin In My Heart and Voodoo Dolly, though great songs, they put Siouxsie in the Gothic category for a long time. The sexy, tribal beats of Voodoo Dolly makes you want to do the dance Siouxsie does live in front of your significant other *wink wink*! Dont waste anymore time and get this album! You will be very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Album Of All Time Jan. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
That's all I can say, the best guitarist, the best bassist, the best drummer, and certainly without a doubt the greatest voice music has ever heard. Siouxsie is addictive. I still love music so much and always want to experience new sounds and new bands, but no one will ever be as good as Siouxsie and the Banhsees and this album is one of(A Kiss in the Dreamhouse being a close second), if not their best.
The lyrics are mystical and each song takes you to a different place, a different color, a different exotic or erotic experience. Full of power and perfection-the first time i heard this album I understood what music was supposed to do to you. I became obsessed with Siouxsie and her sound, and til this day I still believe this is the best CD you will ever hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insane, Morbid, Posessed And Brilliant Dec 25 2003
By "baylo"
Format:Audio CD
A quintessential album that sets the standard by which the whole goth movement is judged on, Juju is essentially a more refined version of The Scream. Eerie, scratching guitar refrains are backed with an intense tribal like rythym section, providing the album with a sound that's both hypnotic and unsettling. Though this is The Banshee's darkest hour, Juju is not so much mournful as it is horrific, morbid and utterly insane; it plays just like a disturbed nightmare, or a horror soundtrack played by posessed tribesmen. A one of a kind album that is so perfect that many have tried to replicate it and failed.
Best Tracks: Night Shift, Voodoo Dolly, Into The Light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goth,dark,whatever Oct. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
I prefer to call it after-punk.This is a very energetic album
that desrves to be played at ear-bleeding levels.Guitar
work is unbelievable.It's a follower to the mellower(moodier
) Kaleidoskope,only faster and more dinamic.This is the
best Siouxie,early Siouxie !.The next album A Kiss... goes
back to melow,though boring.
