Overview

Superstition is a similar album to that of Peepshow, this time with more precise production and a lighter feeling to many of the songs. While Siouxsie and the Banshees albums like Tinderbox and Juju were dark affairs, Superstition's sound is representative of the pink of the album cover. A softer pop sound, mixed with the Banshees' penchant for minor keys and strange imagery. They manage to pull it off quite well on most tracks. "Fear (Of the Unknown)" and "Drifter" are classic Siouxsie stuff, and "Kiss Them for Me" gave them their first significant entry into the U.S. singles charts. But it's tracks like "Silly Thing" that hold this album back. This track manages to do what the Banshees had avoided all their career -- sounding like someone else. One of their most accessible albums, Superstition has appeal without losing its edge.

Although Siouxsie says she didn´t enjoyed working in this album, this was the first S&tB album I bought and remains my favorite. The production is excellent. I like the prescition of all the sonic details and Siouxsie sings better than ever, toping it at the last track. This is the best album I have bought.
