  1. New album is the best one since Sonic Temple. Heard the whole thing and it’s great. I thought ‘The Cult'(1994) and ‘Born Into This’ were pretty lame efforts, as was ‘Ceremony’, but this one stands up to the rest of the catalouge.

  2. John and Jane browne

    What hotel is the Cult staying in, in Windsor Ontario Canada?

  3. John and Jane browne

    Only asking because we are huge fans and would love to get to chat to the Cult like we’ve done before if possible.
