SIOUXSIE & the BANSHEES – “Spellbound” / “Follow The Sun” (Polydor POSP 273) May 1981
Siouxsie & the Banshees “Spellbound” – Their songs can be attractive and melodic, but they still lack the commercial edge that produces hits. I wonder how long they’ll keep on trying? (Record Mirror)
A winner despite Siouxsie’s arch vocals, now all part of the rent-an-actress scene foisted on a gullible public, brain-numbed by TV commercials and memories of “Rock Follies”.
Compensation comes in the form of an enthralling 12-string gallup that encompasses high hurdles and water-jumps, keeping listeners on the edge of their shooting sticks till the post is reached. Sorta spellbound, in fact! (Smash Hits)
