Tinderbox is the seventh studio album by English alternative rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was released on 21 April 1986 by Wonderland and Polydor Records in the United Kingdom and by Geffen Records in the United States. It was the band's first full-length effort recorded with then-new guitarist John Valentine Carruthers; Carruthers had previously only added a few parts on 1984's The Thorn EP. The first recording sessions for this album took place at Hansa by the Wall in Berlin in May 1985.

Tinderbox is the most musically up-tempo of all Siouxsie and the Banshees' albums and the most stylistically consistent one since The Scream and Join Hands. Most of the selections here feature urgently rocking drumming, drivingly aggressive yet fully textured guitar playing, and masterful, gutsy singing. The songs here are intense and unfold slowly, some starting off less vigorously but becoming hard rockers further along.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The only word I could think of to describe this album is intense because there's this gloomy atmosphere with either brooding offbeat ballads or post-punk melodic songs with Siouxsie diving into the vocal delivery each song. It's 9 songs on this album but there are a couple epic ones on here that clock over 6 minutes. This album has little parts of "JuJu''s punk spirit (with "goth" overtones), "A Kiss in the Dream House"'s psychedelic spin at times, but majorly this album sounds like a progression/step forward from "Hyeana".

On April 21st, 1986, Tinderbox-the seventh studio album by Siouxsie and the Banshees was released. It was the first full recording with new guitarist John Valentine Carruthers who had previously been in Clock DVA. On the album’s title, Siouxsie explains: It’s called that because everything seemed to happen either around situations or the effect of weather, said Siouxsie in 1986, and the word conjures up something explosive that’s to do with something being combustible, by the fact that the sun’s there and it’s made it that way, it’s not man made

Dreamhouse was the first Banshees album that the principle players – singer Siouxsie Sioux, Severin, McGeoch and percussion genius Budgie – fashioned from scratch. Having gelled during of a nine-month tour, The Banshees had arrived at an almost telepathic understanding of each and the result was their most colourful and – ahem – kaleidoscopic collection yet. The layers of twelve-string guitar and flanged effects from McGeoch's fingers on opener 'Cascade' flow with a seamless beauty as elsewhere and throughout, Siouxsie's voice achieves a sense of strength and maturity that.

Yahm
Mine just arrived and it looks and sounds just gorgeous!

ℓo√ﻉ
No pops or crackle but very little low end and very mid range sounding.

Doomblade
This sounds way better than my US first edition. The music is still quite bright but tamed down a bit. The vocals aren’t clipping anymore like another review said and the music is much more dynamic. Really happy with this reissue.

Jusari
Cracklings at the beginning of each side, some sporadic clicks throughout the side B, and badly pressed inner grooves (Optimal, what happened to you?). I don't have any other issue of Tinderbox, so no comparison for me. At my taste, all the glitterishness of its original production is still there : music is punchy, bright and lots of fun to listen to. Though things get tendency to get quite saturated, and I'm very unsure whether it's pressing's issue or they pushed the remastering process too far.

Dagdarad
Only Buy on Amazon so you can return LPs like that

Steel balls
Listened today a second copy and needle (actually, 2 different needles) jumps in Cities in Dust. Rest of LP sounds very good, but that issue repeated in 2 different copies. I’m returning it.

crazy mashine
Weird. I'll have to scrutinize it with a careful second listen! I'll report back to you.

fr0mTheSkY
It's too bad they didn't go with the original CD tracklisting and make it a 2XLP set... that has 5 tracks that aren't on the LP version.

Binar
Deleted my old post in favor of reviewing this release: it's absolutely beautiful! The packaging is fantastic and everything looks and sounds great. This is a very quiet pressing as I did not notice any surface noise. I had older pressings in which the vocals were constantly clipping and distorting. That is no longer a problem on this reissue. The sound is full and dynamic. I couldn't ask for more in a reissue. Very affordable too!
