Siouxsie And The Banshees The Scream
McKay co-wrote most of the songs. Only "Carcass" dated from the band's time with Peter Fenton, their guitarist from January to July The title of the album was in part inspired by the film The Swimmer starring Burt Lancaster in which main character Neddy Merrill intended to swim home, using open air pools.
Climbing over garden fence, from pool to pool, his journey put him into a state of mental and physical exhaustion, and in the end, Goddard said, "all Neddy Merril could think to do was scream, [ The idea for the cover was Siouxsie's. Photographer Paul Wakefield met with her and the band to discuss the project. Wakefield later said, "The idea was to shoot disquieting and unnerving images Siouxsie And The Banshees The Scream in a swimming pool — you can't scream underwater.
I wanted to be able to completely control the lighting, and so an indoor pool was the only option. I scouted quite a few pools, but when I saw this pool in the YMCA in Central London, which was dark blue tiled with light blue lane stripes instead of the normal reverse colors, I knew it was the ideal location. I wanted to give it an eerie underwater night-time feel, and this setting was perfect. We used a number of K and K lights around the pool edge. I used school kids as models and they pretty well ran riot.

The Scream was hailed as "the best debut album of the year" by Sounds. It's a This Siouxsie And The Banshees The Scream music of such strength and vision that you just can't not be moved by the time they swing into the final climactic passage of 'Switch', the closing track.
Sweeting then noted that the musicians "have perfected a group sound which is powerful but streamlined", adding that "the words and music combine to produce coolly Kyle Hall The Water Is Fine EP images".

Nick Kent first stated that the band sounded "like some unique hybrid of the Velvet Underground mated with much of the ingenuity of Tago Mago -era Can.
Jigsaw Feeling is full of uneasy discord. Carcass displays a sort of pop sensibility once the handclaps come in near the end. Some songs like Overground and Mirage employ a jangly style which would make its way into later albums. Other songs have McKay roaring over quick-paced tirades. Others like Metal Postcard and Overground have him marauding as a strutting tough guy. All Joe Cruz And The Cruzettes Lahat Ng Araw, there is a messy, scorching feeling best exemplified by Helter Skelter.
The Banshees do it justice and add the rhythmic push the original may have needed. Despite the messy, manic nature of much of the album, Switch ends things in a more melodic note than what comes before, providing a breather from the ruckus and asserting that the Banshees have much more in them. Siouxsie and the Banshees would eventually develop themselves more around this style, but as it stands, The Scream, through its late punk leanings, is a true progenitor of the post-punk and Siouxsie And The Banshees The Scream of the 80s and a fine album in itself.
