  • After releasing a succession of classic goth recordings that outdid its predecessor both commercially and artistically (JOIN HANDS, KALEIDOSCOPE, JUJU), Siouxse & the Banshees took a bit of a step back with their 1982 release, A KISS IN THE DREAM HOUSE. It's not to say that it isn't a fine record in it's own right, just that it recalls their earlier work rather than being another bold musical step further. Granted Siouxse's fifth studio album overall was a significant one in the band's career, since it was the first album by the Banshees in which she used her voice to its full potential, covering a lot of ground (whether it be ethereal whispering or psychedelic rock vocals). Several career highpoints can be sampled here, namely "Cascade," "Obsession," "Green Fingers," and "Painted Bird." A KISS IN THE DREAM HOUSE continued Siouxse & the Banshees' winning streak.
Professional Reviews
Q (3/95, p.129) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...abides as The Banshees' finest hour, concerned as much with beauty as the grinning rictus of death and fair dripping with the sexual imagery that makes an Anne Rice far more affecting than a Dean R. Koontz..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.139) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Given a magnificent shimmer by Mike Hedges, it's where the group mesh best."
