Siouxsie & the Banshees- Juju (1981)
After the relative calm (before the storm) and optimism of "Kaleidoscope" the Banshees are wailing again, doom is at the door, creating what is hardly the sound of summer but what is something intriguing, intense, brooding and powerfully atmospheric. Sioux's voice seems to have acquired a new fullness of melody - a rich, dark smoothness matched only, perhaps, by Bourneville chocolate and Jim Morrison.

Great guitar work from the late John McGeogh (formerly of Magazine and, er... Visage, later of PIL), Steve Severin and Budgie are as solid as ever.
