Siouxsie, 'Mantaray' (Decca)

7
Mantaray
Critical Mass
Label: Decca

by Mackenzie Wilson

After reigning over the Banshees and the Creatures for three decades, punk's newly divorced, 50-year-old leading lady goes it alone, exclaiming, "I feel a force I've never felt before" on the swaggering dance-club slayer "Into a Swan." She never lets up, turning Mantaray's vibrant emotional current of noirish cabaret slinkiness ("Drone Zone"), industrial-tinged languor ("Loveless"), and divine pop elegance ("If It Doesn't Kill You") into a dazzling headfuck. Slight echoes of her past work seep through, but mostly she's casting a refreshing new spell.
