There's no use pretending that Cults are game-changers, but if you have a soft spot for the glam goth of yore, it's hard to resist their girl-group-infused rendition of the genre. Their debut ratchets up the creep factor with Jim Jones audio clips, and spoken interludes that sound like they're delivered from behind locked doors. MARJORIE SKINNER
