L''album de reprises est un genre à part entière, un exercice de style. Les règles sont strictes, le programme est quasi imposé. L''album de reprises et avant tout un subtil équilibre entre des valeurs sûres, des morceaux à contre courant, des choix arbitraires (parfois discutables), des titres issus d''univers musicaux complètements différents de celui de l''artiste, des hommages à peine voilés, des oubliés de l''histoire et, cerise sur le gâteau, une chanson décalée (pas trop quand même..), un choix incongru, la surprise inattendue. Un disque rassemble tous ces ingrédients et résume à lui seul l''art de la reprise : Through the looking glass de Siouxsie & The Banshees. Tout concoure ici à faire de cet album la référence absolue, le mètre étalon sur lequel toute nouvelle tentative sera évaluée. L''éventail des titres retenus est exemplaire. Des monstres sacrés : The Doors, Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday, Iggy Pop ; des artistes cultes adorés de La critique : Sparks, Kraftwerk, John Cale. La façon dont les œuvres originales ont été retraités est exemplaire. La reprise du Hall of Mirrors met en exergue l''excellence des compositions des teutons du rock, crée une improbable passerelle entre l''électronique germanique et le rock gothique et, bouquet final, donne son titre à l'album. Dans The Passenger le groupe reprend les choses là où Iggy Pop les a laissées et fait exploser la frontière que l'iguane n''a pas voulu franchir. Les envolées de Siouxsie et les cuivres magnifient ce titre, en montrent toute la puissance et la redoutable efficacité.Lire la suite ›

Par The Dreaming TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 27 février 2005
Format: CD
L'album de reprises est un exercice de style à peu près incontournable pour les groupes ou les chanteurs (du "Pinups" de Bowie au "People are strange" de Stina Nordenstam, au hasard...).
Siouxsie and the Banshees ne faillissent donc pas à la règle et s'en tirent avec les honneurs. Choix de titres parfois surprenants (...le Livre de la jungle !!!) ou casse-gueule (Kraftwerk, Sparks...) mais à l'arrivée, l'album est très agréable et élégant.

L'album des reprises. Que des reprises, toutes plus réussies les unes que les autres. Les Banshees prouvent encore leur talent en se les appropriant complètement. Un choix d'artistes et de titres ecclectique et interressant, les Sparks, Kraftwerk, Disney's Jungle book, Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday, The Doors, Iggy Pop, John Cale, Roxy Music, Television.Un très bel album, trop court, à l'ambiance changeante,du drame au mystère, en passant par l'energie.

HASH(0x92861894) étoiles sur 5 Names of original bands 25 avril 2002
Par Maureen Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I did a little homework and found out who originally did what song on Through the Looking Glass (a truly astounding CD). Siouxsie didn't exactly choose from Top 40 selections, so a bit of sleuthing was in order.
1. Sparks
2. Kraftwerk
3. Jungle Book soundtrack
4. The Band (the original is unbearable, in my opinion)
5. Billie Holiday
6. Doors
7. Iggy Pop
8. John Cale
9. Roxy Music (when Brian Eno was still with them)
10. Television

HASH(0x928618e8) étoiles sur 5 Gets My Vote for Best Covers Album Ever! 16 mai 2005
Par Rich Latta - Publié sur Amazon.com

Siouxsie & the Banshees - Through the Looking Glass (1987)

The song choices are really surprising for Siouxsie & the Banshees and they all turned out fantastic. What makes these songs so good, aside from the talented musicians involved, is the creative way they are re-imagined. In my view, Siouxsie & the Banshees have never gotten the credit they deserved. Not only did they make some of the most lush, sophisticated and otherworldly albums ever recorded, they made some of the best pop singles ever IMHO. Nearly every song on THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS has been trimmed and polished into a perfect pop gem. Anyone of them would've made an excellent single. Considering the fact that Siouxsie & the Banshees were such excellent songwriters, it would be sacrilegious to claim their covers album to be one of their best...I won't go so far as to say that, but I will say it's one of my personal favorites. THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS still blows me away every time I hear it.

My impressions:

"This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us" (The Sparks) - a propulsive, runaway roller coaster of a song augmented with fantastic orchestral accompaniment.

"Hall of Mirrors" (Kraftwerk) - bubbling, mechanical, yet infused with soul courtesy of Siouxsie. Great lyrics.

"Trust in Me" (Richard and Robert Sherman - from the JUNGLEBOOK movie) - one of the most sensuous, slow-burning recordings ever. Adorned with heavenly harps and a purring, sexy delivery from Siouxsie. Absolutely hypnotic.

"This Wheel's On Fire" (Bob Dylan, Rick Danko) - shocking reinvention of the last track of Bob Dylan's BASEMENT TAPES album recorded with the Band. A much more upbeat version than the original featuring wild orchestral accompaniment. Featuring a complicated arrangement, this must have been challenging to record, but it's positively dazzling. The inspiration to cover this song actually came from a version sung by Julie Driscoll that Siouxsie caught on TV as a child. When she found out it was written by Bob Dylan, she almost reconsidered making the recording - she hates Bob Dylan! lol

"Strange Fruit" (Lewis Allen - sung by Billie Holliday) - you gotta admit, it took guts for Siouxsie to cover a song sung by one of the most acclaimed vocalists of all time. This is a hauntingly disturbing protest song against the lynching of blacks in the old South. Predictably, Siouxsie's voice doesn't compare to the lush, creepy delivery found on Lady Day's version but she holds her own with a valiant effort. The song is fleshed out with windy atmospherics and a melancholy violin.

"You're Lost Little Girl" (The Doors) - becomes almost a celebratory march in the hands of S&B augmented by orchestra and chiming bells. Intriguing.

"The Passenger" (Iggy Pop) - great rhythm, great horn section, great attitude from Siouxsie. In some more just alternate reality, this song is a huge hit.

"Gun" (John Cale) - a really fun song, the original is long and meandering with winding guitar passages. S&B generally tighten it up adding life and color. I've seen Siouxsie cover this with John Cale when he toured with the Creatures (Siouxsie and Budgie with a touring band) and you can find them doing a great version on Youtube. The song is a blast!

"Sea Breezes" (Roxy Music) - one of my absolute favorites from Siouxsie and Co. despite being a cover. The original version is strange and experimental. S&B turn it into a dreamy, mysterious wonderland with an intense climax courtesy of some powerful drum rolling from Budgie.

"Little Johnny Jewel" (Television) - another favorite. The original is quirky and loaded with prickly guitars. By comparison, S&B turn it into a killer pop song that is totally infectious. I never heard the original until the MARQUEE MOON re-release which featured bonus tracks including this single, Television's first ever release. "Little Johnny Jewel" was originally a strange affair, stretched out over two sides of a single, heard in its entirety for the first time on the expanded album. MARQUEE MOON is itself a classic record full of incredible guitar work, very highly recommended.

HASH(0x92861d20) étoiles sur 5 A very good covers album – a mediocre remaster 30 octobre 2014
Par Scott Davies - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Rather than end my review with my thoughts on the remastering and packaging, I will start with it. Simply put, I feel the remastering is lacking. The fidelity has been dulled down and the volume has been increased to heavy compression levels. By lowering the high end it makes many of the nuances in the music blur into the background. Just give a simple comparison to the original CD (compensating the volume for accuracy). The “remastered” CD sounds dull by comparison. Though the original album tracks have definitely been compressed, the two 12” mixes have been destroyed. I had hoped Severin would have found a nice middle ground because he’s well aware that I’m not the only one who has had issues with the past remasters, but no such luck. I’m also not a fan of the packaging at all. The single fold digipaks looks cheap and flimsy. Even some of the Banshees CD singles had more elaborate packaging. The glossy finish from the last batch of remasters was deemed an “error” so this batch is back to the matte finish similar to the first batch of remasters when they were available as digipaks. I would much prefer a standard and protective jewel case, though Severin has stated his distaste for them.

Through the Looking Glass was one of the first records I bought by Siouxsie and the Banshees when I started getting into their music in 1987. I didn’t really want to start with a covers album but it was the only LP I could find at my local store at the time. The album opens with the Sparks cover of their huge 1974 hit ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us’. I really liked this right away and it became a favorite of mine, though I had not heard the original at that point. When I did finally hear the original several years later I was surprised how much better it was than the Banshees version. The drums in the original were excellent and had a stop/start excitement to them. The Banshees version was built around a repetitive bass drum. It’s good but could have been much better. The next cover is Kraftwerk’s ‘Hall of Mirrors”, and it’s the best song on this album. The original song, like much of Kraftwerk’s music, is very repetitious. Siouxsie makes the very smart call of saving the chorus of the song until after 2 verses, not 1 like the Kraftwerk version. The music is very dark and catchy with pounding drums and throbbing bass, and has a definite late 80’s Gothic feel to it. ‘This Wheel’s on Fire’ was written by Bob Dylan and became a big hit for the Banshees. It’s not half bad but certainly not one of my favorites. The video for it is very classy. I’ve recently learned to love the cover of ‘Strange Fruit’. The strings are glorious and Siouxsie sings it just beautifully. ‘The Passenger’ was released as the second single and sounded like it could have been a big hit. It was very poppy and catchy, though it didn’t set the charts on fire. ‘Sea Breezes’ is a very competent cover of Roxy Music.

Of the bonus tracks, I think the one most fans have been waiting for is the wonderful but neglected 1987 single (which followed ‘The Passenger’) called ‘Song from the Edge of the World’. The song is very energizing, showcasing Siouxsie’s vocal strength at the time. However, the single was the lowest charting of their career at the time and was disregarded when it came to the band’s 1992 singles collection Twice Upon a Time – The Singles. The band claimed it was left off because of bad memories working with the producer on the single at the time which allegedly caused what they viewed as shortcomings on the finished product, though I don’t doubt for one second that the vanity of its chart placing had a big part in its absence. But fans have been telling Severin for years online that the song is absolutely brilliant and should be re-released on CD for the first time in its original single version. Well, here it is… and it sounds remarkably dull and muddy when comparing it to the original Geffen records 12” single, which contained both the long and short versions of the song. But for most people, this inclusion will be a relief. The two 12” mixes of the album singles are both enjoyable alternate versions. Severin had been posting his dislike of most of the band’s extended versions so there was concern they may not be included. It’s unfortunate that the volume on these mixes have been brickwalled to the extreme. The screenshot is of ‘The Passenger’ 12” mix to illustrate this.

HASH(0x92862108) étoiles sur 5 " Trust in me..." 9 août 2002
Par ignorance is bliss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This is my favorite Banshees album by far, I flipped it over and over on the turntable ( yes, I had the vinyl version! ). Not only are the covers stylisticly different, the sources are just as diverse. As other reviewers have noted here, some of the original versions are less than well known. I had to see the Jungle Book again and read an article on Billie Holliday's "Strange Fruit" to familiarize myself. Iggy and Roxy Music were less surprising, as Siouxsie and Steve Severin were digging these people in the early seventies. It's upbeat, it's melancholy, it's pure Banshees. Probably the most accessible Banshees album after "Rapture".

HASH(0x928620b4) étoiles sur 5 A haunting album 18 mai 2006
Par C. Juliet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The first time i had heard this album I was totally oblivious it was a covers album. It really sounds like all original stuff the band wrote. It's not disjointed like some covers albums can be, it sounds like a coherent solid original album. I heard Siouxsie's passenger before Iggy pop's which may seem strange to some people but we are all introduced to music at different stages and times. (Was surprised to find the true meaning of the song "Strange Fruit", originally sung by Billie Holliday regarding the lynching of slaves) This album has a unique and haunting sound. I believe it to be one of the best of Siouxsie's.
