KMA1404 Collaboration Week #4: Cult – Pure Cult: For Rockers, Ravers, Lovers And Sinners
Cult – Pure Cult: For Rockers, Ravers, Lovers And Sinners
or, THE BEST FUCKING COLLABORATION WEEK EVER!
Welcome to an exciting week of collaboration with Mike! Yes, you read that correctly: A WHOLE WEEK! You lucky Readers, we’ll be bringing you tons of goodness. We haven’t read each other’s reviews in advance, so let’s see what happens…
LET’S GIVE ‘ER!!
I owned this CD for a long time. And then, in one of my fits of brain farts where I told myself I needed the money more than I needed all of this Cult-y goodness, I sold it off in one of my purges. That was really a stupid choice, as I love this CD.
At some point later, they came out with a different version of it called Pure Cult: The Singles 1984-1995. That one had different tracks (and edit versions) on it. I’m sure this other one is fine enough, but it’s not for me. There’s only one way I want to hear Pure Cult and that is in its original Rockers, Ravers… form. It’s like when they remastered Bob Marley’s Legend and mucked up the track list with different songs. I couldn’t listen to that. The original track list is so ingrained in my brain, anything else would just throw me.
Well, it’s all rectified now, I have an old original copy here again. Playing it after all this time, it is still the absolute bomb. Yes, it’s true that it’d be better to just own all the albums and therefore have even more Cult-y goodness! But for a one-CD shot of a mind-boggling array of classics from this most excellent band, this CD is a damn fine one-stop-shop heaven of that classic period Cult.
