Siouxsie & the Banshees


Siouxsie & the Banshees

Best Of (Interscope) Siouxsie's set list at April's Coachella Festival was culled exclusively from B-sides and non-hits, so it's refreshing to see this 2-CD compendium of gothic goodies. Part one is unremarkable best-of fodder, including early greats "Cities in Dust" and Beatles cover "Dear Prudence." It's the 12-inch/remix-heavy second disc that boggles the mind, with the rare, soaring, and string-heavy Glamour Mix of "Dazzle" and the Tim Burton-inspired love-trod of "Face to Face" (Catatonic Mix).
