Biography

The Cult are an English rock band, formed in 1983.

Customer Reviews

There are several great songs on this album.
Justin G.
The drastic side step Ceremony was from the much (and in my opinion, overly) heralded Sonic Temple was too much for most mainstream rock fans.

In my opinion, it's a SUPER record and the best they ever made.

I have been a huge Cult fan for years. When this CD was released I was in love with it because it was the Cult. I was not as enthralled with it as I had been with prior CD's and actually became a little dissapointed. Then I kept on listening and the more I listened the more I loved it. If you turn up Earth Mofo and just let loose this track really rock's. Sweet Salvation is a heartfelt jam that really get's strong at the end. I can honestly say the song Full Tilt is one of the worst tracks by the Cult. It sound's forced and really not worth it. The rest of the disk is a powerful collection of 80's power metal with American Indian sound's blended in. If you hate it at first, try it again. I truly feel that one will love this CD by the third or fourth listen. Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find a real gem.

Having a history with The Cult since '85, I've found each Cult album stands on it's own merit. The drastic side step Ceremony was from the much (and in my opinion, overly) heralded Sonic Temple was too much for most mainstream rock fans. This album holds itself up mightily with a mix of mind melting guitar work and passionate vocals. Frontman Ian Astbury bellows from the depths of loneliness and introspect on tracks like "If","Wild Hearted Son", and "Heart of Soul". His voice is powerful, angry, and yeilding. These aspects make him one of the most unique to bang the tambourine but still be able to tell you to shut up, and you'll listen.
Having all their major releases, their three major boxed set compilations, and numerous unauthorized recordings, I've learned Billy Duffy can really play the guitar well. He can play rreeaaally well. On this release, he carries nearly every tune. Arguably this is his finest work. A smarmy intro to a thundering riff brings "Ceremony" to life. "Earth Mofo" is not for the faint of heart as you feel the rush as it hits your veins, and it feels gooood. "White" is a shared accompaniment of gentle acoustic melody before giving way to almost anthemic imagery. "Full Tilt" builds to a gate crashing crescendo. The seemingly love it or it's just O.K. the 6:05 "Wonderland" grooves you with a very funky beat until Billy gives you a dose of what he can do about half way through until the end of the track. Put on your headphones and turn it up,...LOUD. You are in for a treat, courtesy of William Henry Duffy.
Ceremony has a heavier and more raw, but methodical, feel to it as a whole than it's predecessor, Sonic Temple, so maybe that's why it wasn't perceived as well. It stands on it's own merit. Give it a deep, unbiased, listen and you will be glad you did.

I first heard Wild Hearted Son on the radio and taped it onto a cassette tape and used to play it in my car, not knowing what the name of the band was. Then one day I saw this tape and learned it had WHS on it, and bought it. That was about 1993.

For a long time this was my favorite album. I must have played it hundreds of times before I started to get tired of it. No other album by The Cult has ever affected me as much as this one. On a TV interview, Ian and Billy claim it's "a boring album" but I find that hard to believe. In my opinion, it's a SUPER record and the best they ever made.

While not as dynamic as say Love, or Electric, it is as good as Sonic Temple if not better. Wild Hearted Son is probably among the best songs they have ever recorded. It seems much more introspective than much of their earlier work, which is a nice change of pace.

This is the album that marks the begining of the end of The Cult's history. It isn't a bad album, on the contrary, it has great songs like "Sweet salvation" or "Wild hearted son", it has a great sound production and so on, but it has some very boring moments too, without inspiration and without the strenght they had on, for example "Electric". Some people may say it is more mature, but I say it is less genuine.

Apart from the CD 'Pure Cult' this is one of fav Cult CDs, there are some great songs on this one, the band didn't think too highly of this one, but the title track 'Ceremony' goes off. This CD also has the whole unedited version of the killer track 'Wild Hearted Son', (the Pure Cult CD edits this song) but the Ceremony CD plays the video version. 'White' is a good song with Astbury coming off Jim Morrision like on this track. But my fav track here is 'Indian Woman' - a slow song that is beautifully sung by Astbury, and the lyrics are easy to remember. Also the version of 'heart of soul' on this CD is better than the Pure Cult version! There are some songs here that I skip, but the others are great Cult songs!
