The Cult were a singles band, as evidenced by the Stones-like 'Love Removal Machine' and the blazing 'Fire Woman'. The ensemble's mixture of '60s influences (no wonder Ian Astbury became the lead singer of the reformed Doors) and hard-rock power, not only helped define a whole subset of the late-'80s alternative-rock scene, it's fair to say that the groups like Stone Temple Pilots owed at least some of their success to the Cult's early flirtations with the rock mainstream. Although the set isn't chronologically ordered, 'Pure Cult' still gives a good sense of the band's surprisingly organic shift in sound, ranging from the gothy neo-psychedelia of 'She Sells Sanctuary' to the sneering rock of 'Star'.
