  Melt! Advert Click Here For Bigger ScanSurely 'Slowdive', the Banshees' previous 45, was the Great Lost Single of 1982.  In 'Melt!' we have another superlative, atmospheric track from the current album, fully consistent with the group's reputation for singles that conjure a small world of sensual mystery (and exciting stuff like that) inside a couple of minutes.

Best, I think to overlook the alleged double A-side, wherein Siouxsie intones the old French crimbo hymn 'Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant' in a voice that lacks either of the qualities the song requires, namely tenderness, or satire.
