The Cult



Beggars Banquet
Released 18 October 1985

Love is the second album by English rock band The Cult, released in 1985 on Beggars Banquet Records. The record has been released in nearly 30 countries worldwide, and sold an estimated 2.5 million copies. It gave The Cult commercial success in the UK and abroad. Love was recorded at Jacob's Studios in Farnham, Surrey, in July and August 1985.

Equal parts psychedelic hard rock and new wave goth, the songs on Love emanate a bright guitar sheen, tight arrangements, crisp drumming, and a command performance fro vocalist Ian Astbury.
