Has it really been six years since the last Cult album? Following up 2001′s Beyond Good and Evil, Born Into This hits hard with eleven new studio tracks from founding members Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. Nothing terribly new here just more of the same heavy guitar oriented alternative rock and roll that we’ve come to love and expect from this seminal band. Mr. Astbury is still a joy to listen to, having one of the most original voices in rock, but there is still a part of me that longs for a “Horse Nation” revival. Stand out tracks include “Dirty Little Rock Star” and “I Assassin.” (Roadrunner) –CD
