Product Description

2009 digitally remastered and expanded digipak edition of this classic Banshees album from 1986 featuring four bonus tracks including the Extended Version of 'Cities In Dust' and three previously unreleased tracks: the Chris Kimsey version of 'Sweetest Chill' and the JVC versions of 'Starcrossed Lovers' and 'Song From The Edge of the World'. Siouxsie & The Banshees began life as a Punk outfit (with Sid Vicious on drums, no less!) before mutating into Post-Punkers on their way to becoming one of the most influential Goth Rock band on the scene. To this day, over 10 years after their disintegration, the band's fanatical fan base continues to grow. Universal. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Okay, I am not a vampire or any other permutation of g-g-goth. But I have always really respected Siouxsie since the early 80's (okay, I'm also pretty old), ever since I first picked up The Scream, which is another great album.
Tinderbox is a genre-bending piece of work, and like too many such works, will probably go unrecognized as such by... those who "recognize" this kind of thing. Sure, if you like spooky content, it's all there: death, deals with death, unconditional death, and worse-than-death represent in force. But what makes me check in with this disc again and again -- and it has been a regular, unpredictable guest in my playlist since 1986 -- is that thing about certain albums/discs/recordings that haunt, tease and compel you to keep listening, or to throw it on in the background during those anti-social times when you need something unique to keep you on your toes.
What I can say is that this album has, pound for pound, some of the best and most original guitar-playing on it that I have heard; that the disc is incredibly consistent and sustains a black, silky mood from beginning to end; and yet it is because of the blackness that it is, in the end, so compelling and fulfilling. How much more black could this be? None. None more black (-Nigel Tufnel).

Tinderbox is an obvious adaption towards an 80s hard rock sound. The songs are tightly structured, precisely executed and carry a heavy guitar driven sound throughout. This isn't to imply that The Banshees have lost any of their dark theatrics (most of the songs deal with death after all), merely that they are steering it through a more accessible and melodically appealing route.
Best Cuts: The Sweetest Chill, This Unrest, Cities In Dust.

The 3rd best Siouxsie brew (after "Anima, Animus" and "Superstition"). Melodic and macbre, she does a fine job of conquering quesy subjects and complex arrangements. Only reason it gets a 4/5 is the pretentious anti-drug rant, "Candyman." Best cuts are easily the hummable "The Sweetest Chill" (about longing a loved one) and the spoken-word horror, "The Execution," which reminds one of Belly's great song, "Slow Dog," about a woman punished by carrying a dead dog on her back.

Tracks 9 and onwards are actually B-sides (albeit amazing B-sides), so my rating reflects how I feel about the first 8 songs, which make up the true "Tinderbox" album.
The CD's over-all atmosphere is amazingly consistent, with signature guitar sounds that you can't mistake for anything else the Banshees have done. Since I own both "Downside Up" (for the B-sides) and "Twice Upon a Time" (for "Candyman" and "Cities in Dust"), though, the only tracks that would motivate me to keep this album is the hauntingly sublime "The Sweetest Chill" and the wonderful "Cannons". The others simply don't captivate me, although I'm not all implying that they're bad songs. I just wouldn't listen to them over and over again, which is what seperates a good song from a so-so song, at least for me.
