    Anybody here dig the Cult. I'm getting into them pretty heavy and I'm curious if the new box set is worth the $$$? I have 4 Cult CDs and enjoy most of the material. Let me know what you think. MO.

    I have to say that the Cult is one band that I just don't get. Other than Edie (Ciao Baby), I don't care much for them. She Sells Sanctuary is a very over-rated song in my opinion.

    My wife has a few of their CD's, maybe I'll give them another listen.

    Sorry, not much of a positive post, but I just can't bear to watch a thread go unanswered like this.

    Thanks for the post Glenn! Try these songs: Love Removal Machine (my favorite), Wildflower, and Fire Woman. You might like!
    Take it easy. MO.


    P.S., Whats going on with the Oilers? Thought they would be better this year!! My Wings seem to be kicking into gear now!

    Isn't Love Removal Machine the one that has the same chords as Start Me Up? My wife informed me tonight that several years ago I pillaged her CD collection and got rid of a couple of those Cult CD's. The only one left is Love. Needless to say, if she got rid of any of my CD's, there'd be trouble, but that's just the kind of hypocrite I am.

    Not an Oiler fan, mostly because the local media just drives me up a wall. I went to the Edmonton/Nashville game last Wednesday and the Oilers lost, and they played terrible, totally disinterested. Lucky for Edmonton that the NHL is set up so a .500 record usually gets you into the playoffs.

    I like The Cult a lot, one of my favourite bands....excellent live. The boxset is 6(?) cds of rare and unreleased stuff - I passed on this for the cost. There is a single cd compilation from the set called Best of Rare Cult which I do have. Some good stuff, especially the rare gem 'Zap City' which might be their best ever track. It also features Love Removal Machine from the unreleased Peace album - that is Electric done in the Love style before Rick Rubin turned it into an AC/DC album.

    The boxset has all/most of the Peace session I think - I already have 5 tracks from this on tape, much better than the final Electric album IMO.

    Those guys are (also?) doing a reunion album which is due pretty soon I think.

    Not a big cult-fan, but last year, I saw Billy duffy's new band 'coloursound' live in London. Singer in this band is the ex-singer of the Alarm, Mike Peters. This band really rocks! Has anybody here heard their cd?
    btw,anybody here who used to like the alarm?

    Not a huge fan of the Cult, but like a few of their songs. But did anyone notice "Sanctuary" and "Love Removal Machine" have the exact same chord progression? Cool songs though. Just wish they didn't "Sanctuary" for the car commercial. "Rain' is a cool song too. The Alarm was an underrated group in the US. "The Stand" and "68 Guns" were solid songs....
