Siouxsie and the Banshees were an English rock band, formed in London in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin. They have been widely influential, both over their contemporaries and with later acts. Mojo rated guitarist John McGeoch in their list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" for his work on "Spellbound". The Times cited the group as "one of the most audacious and uncompromising musical adventurers of the post-punk era".
Sure enough, The Rapture proved to be their final recording. The surprise is that it's a career highpoint. The band deny, incidentally, that they knew this was to be their last album

The last album that Siouxsie and the Banshees put out is like I said: simply epic. They are incredibly inventive, intense, and creative here. On some songs you can here them incorporate their punk roots more significantly and they also experiment further with synths and electronics to great benefit. There's only 2 songs that I think could've been left off that don't do much for the album as a whole and really aren't that great in my eyes: "O Baby" and "The Lonely One" . I would recommend this album to brand new listeners who might be considering Siouxsie and The Banshees for the first time. It's a great starters album.
