Recently-Acquired Vinyl LP of the Day #11: Siouxsie and the Banshees 'Juju'

Another of the Banshees' classic LPs, best experienced of course via the medium of vinyl, as it originally was, & again a delight to be re-acquainted with in such 'widescreen' form, featuring as it does such wonders as 'Into the Light', 'Arabian Nights', & the mighty monoliths 'Monitor' (which wouldn't necessarily have sounded out of place on either of the first two Siouxsie albums) & 'Nightshift', the latter worth the purchase price alone, & somehow the very epitome of gothic, exhilaratingly so, yet the band never were 'Goth' in the manner they were often lazily labelled, being so much more varied in the scope of their aesthetic, not least as can be heard & appreciated over the course of this album.
"Sit back and enjoy the real McCoy" indeed.
