This is one of Siouxsie's best albums.
"victorcharlesiii"
"Christine" is driven by a great bass line and acoustic guitar, with icy vocals from Siouxsie, dealing with a Sybil-like split personality.

It is very much like a kaleidoscope- each song has its own flavor and sound.

Forget categories like Goth or Dark Wave, this record is a classic no matter what pigeonhole you try to put it in. On this disc the band pulled out all the stops, and the quirkiness of their performances (notice for example the dizzying tempo changes on "Happy House"; it ends at least 1/3 faster than it begins), only serve to make the thing more endearing. And Budgie's drum sound--good heavens.....it's as far from the over-produced "big drum" crap that Phil Collins made famous as you can get. These drums have character and Budgie's snare never sounds the same two hits in a row. But the true charm of this disc is the songs. They are so creatively conceived and performed it is mind-boggling. Some people call "Juju" the quintessential Siouxsie record--and I love it too, my friends, but Kaleidoscope broke the mold. I had the LP, wore it out, and now I'm carrying the CD in my car and refuse to part with it. Buy this disc; you will love it.

Siouxie and the Banshees always had a deep crush on classic American funk (find, if you can, the cover of "Supernatural Thing" on the flipside of the "Arabian Nights" 12" single), though, in keeping with a key plank in punk's aesthetic manifesto, they were smart enough to never play it in blackface. In short, this is an album of dope beats -- the underlying foundation for some clean barre-chord riffing, sweet and tarnished pop songcraft, and a good dose of European weltschmertz -- though it's the cold rock beats that make it better than a Nico record every time out.

In my opinion the Banshees best over all album. A perfect blend of hypnotic, rhythmic oddities and twisted, not quite "pop" songs. Kaleidoscope shows off the Banshees every strength, from Siouxsie's new-found control over her once admittedly quite out of control voice, to Severin and Budgie's continuing almost telepathetic relation as a rhythm section. A bevy of session guitarists ( from ex-Pistol Steve Jones to eventual full time, if short lived member, John McGeoch ) hold the songs together quite well, you'd never notice the ever-shifting lineup. Tight, with great production. Very highly recommended.

Siouxsie & The Banshees - Kaleidoscope (1980)

and you will revel in supremely creepy characters and dark, wondrous places. This fantastic, quintessential Siouxsie album encompasses both S&B's punk edge as well as their use of synthesizers for the first time and their expansion into even more evocative, atmospheric songwriting.

Siouxsie's voice is pretty close to peak form on this album, their 3rd. She sounds more comfortable with her voice, dispensing with some of the more eccentric stylings of her earliest recordings (this is not to say that Siouxsie has not continued to employ unusual and highly creative vocal techniques which are all her own because she certainly has - especially with the Creatures). The lyrics are, typical of Siouxsie, simply brilliant and the music - newly embellished with electronics and tinged with psychedelia - perfectly conveys their moods to create vivid atmospheres, one of the band's greatest gifts.

My impressions:

"Happy House" - classic Siouxsie. In my head I can picture this secret society of shut-ins, tucked away in their own little world, tumbling like clowns (with evil, gothic face-paint). The haunted carnival atmosphere with its off-kilter rhythm offers the first clue that all is not truly well in this little paradise. This song helped me realize early on that even punks and others who "rebel against society" often have their own little folkways, prejudices and delusions, wary of non-conformity within their little circles. "Happy House" is a perfect distillation of this theme. *****

"Tenant" - This one has a really creepy atmosphere that makes me want to curl up in a shell and hide.

punk / gothic

it took me about... a day to delve into the album

but about a week for all the songs to catch and transfer themselves into my head

at first i thought it was a bit boring

but i was so so wrong

01. Happy House

one of the more famous tracks from this album. mega catchy tune. the drumming really brings it out along with the high pitched synths. quite sinister but not dark. a punky, up-beat song.

not a fave on this album it's no doubt an awesome track.

8/10

02. Tenant

starts with a high pitched synth cry and a spiky synth beat. very creepy. quite a spine-tingling tune. this song actually made me jump when i was listening to it in bed. when she sings about how "the painters crash" deep background synths slide in in, spooky stuff!!

8.5/10

03. Trophy

it took me a while to get into this track but it's a typical dark siouxsie tune. when you do get into it it becomes mega catchy. her voice is sorta drugged and sleepy which works

7/10

04. Hybrid

i love the drum beat but i really can't get into this track. shame it's the longest too. it just gets sorta... boring

5.5/10

05. Clockface

i LOVE this track. it's the shortest on the album but it's so catchy even though it contains no lyics. just a clever series of "OH!" and "A-WAO-WAO!!". an up-beat, punkish charger. i love it

10/10

06. Lunar Camel

a very gloomy electro song with a gothic-arabesque sound and a trip-hop feel. no guitars here at all but it's awsome. a slower song with naive and sweet vocals. the first song i got into on this album. very melancholy

10/10

07.
