Cult, The

Sonic Temple

The Cult had been great at taking what was quite popular at the time and doing the same, usually outdoing the others. This album saw them go arena rock big time. They had the obligatory rocking lead single that everyone now knows followed by the ballad, the unique 'Edie, Ciao Baby'. This record is a true gem. --johnk5150

“She awakens from a dream to a silent room where shadows speak of memories. Another sleepless night, afraid to face the day. It seems so long ago, she shared the love she feels so deep inside. Her love will never die, but still she feels so lonely…”
