    ELECTRIC was the Cult's mainstream breakthrough album in the United States, where the UK band's previous records, DREAMTIME and LOVE, had been embraced by college radio. After unsatisfying sessions with LOVE producer Steve Brown, the Cult hooked up with superstar hip-hop producer (and unapologetic 1970s-boogie fan) Rick Rubin to re-record the tracks, and his changes make the album. Adding a drum sound as loud as his previous work with the Beastie Boys and Run-DMC and beefing up Billy Duffy's lead guitar riffs into full-on Led Zeppelin territory, Rubin completed the Cult's makeover from psych-tinged goths into '70s-inspired hard-rockers (with a heavy Doors influence as well). The revved-up singles "Love Removal Machine" and "Lil' Devil" best exemplify ELECTRIC, which is arguably the band's best album.
