Seasons in the Sun

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Spell; Genre: Rock

Spell Seasons in the Sun (Mute) Two avowed satanists faithfully cover chunks of '60s and '70s pop cheese on the most conceptually perverse novelty record you're likely to hear. Rose McDowall's baby-doll murmurs and Boyd Rice's malignant speak-singing bring a touch of genuine creepiness to jejune tunes by the likes of Bobby Sherman and Rod McKuen. And when they get to the Dolly Parton song about a wayward dad's stillborn child (''Down From Dover''), it all becomes one pretty funny sick joke. B -Doug Brod
