This reissue has been enhanced by three extra tracks. Although not generally considered to be amongst this seminal punk band's top 5 albums, Hyaena contains at least four magical moments. As such, it is not a bad album at all and in fact I like it more now than when it was released in the middle 1980s.
The first is the swirling Dazzle, a soaring melodic rock ballad that all by itself makes the album worthwhile. Swimming Horses is another classic of post punk-psychedelic rock, quite an atmospheric number. Then there's their cover of The Beatles' Dear Prudence, where the arrangement and Siouxsie's voice turn a love song into an eerie 'noire' affair.
We Hunger has a bubbling, jerky rhythmic backdrop whilst Take Me Back is a sparse, mid-tempo ballad. Belladonna is another of my favorites and the 4th masterpiece of the album with a beautiful melody. Bring Me The Head Of The Preacher Man is a long brooding piece of dense instrumentation and claustrophobic airs whilst Running Town has some interesting tempo changes and striking guitar playing.
Hyaena has stood the test of time very well but the three added tracks don't really add much to the magic. The aforementioned great songs, especially Dazzle, Belladonna and Swimming Horses, rank amongst this legendary group's best songs. My other recommended albums by Siouxsie & The Banshees are Peepshow, Join Hands, The Rapture and Superstition.
