Review

The Best of Siouxsie and the Banshees is a decent look into the eclectic world of Siouxsie Sioux. The band, however, really didn't need to release another hits collection. Once Upon a Time: The Singles (1981) and Twice Upon a Time: The Singles (1992) are comprehensive enough to stand alone. Universal aimed to make this a stylish set with glossy favorites such as "Dear Prudence," "Peek-a-Boo," and "Spellbound," but lesser-known classics like "Candy Man" and "Dazzle" are missing. It would have made more sense to release a live collection from the band's 2002 reunion tour, or show highlights from the early days, but a second disc of rare remixes makes up for a less-than-impressive first disc. "Song From the Edge of the World (Columbus Mix)" rumbles with dark, lush percussion, as does "The Killing Jar (Lepidopteristic Mix)" and "Dazzle (The Glamour Mix)," all of which make for a divine, intoxicating collection. Longtime fans should be impressed by the remix portion of the album. So add it to the Siouxsie discography. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
