Bloodflowers is for sure their best post-Wish album. Which isn't saying much, but I really enjoy that album. The Trilogy live performance of it is great, especially Watching Me Fall.

I love Paris, mainly on account of the SS-Faith-Pornography-heavy tracklisting. The versions of The Figurehead and In Your House on there are sublime.

The crowd participation on Play For Today is another highlight.

And One Hundred Years sounds so much better with Boris Williams. I'm not a big fan of Jason Cooper's drumming. Lol was simple and primitive in the best way possible, Cooper is just dull and boring.

I must admit I took Three Imaginary Boys to mean basically TIB/BDC. You could say I voted for the "era" it represents rather than the specific tracklist.

I'm amazed that Wish has more votes than KMKMKM, Seventeen Seconds and Faith.

Doing the Unstuck, A Letter to Elise, To Wish Impossible Things, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, Apart...

Great album. It has that Friday atrocity, but nothing is perfect.

Oh, and some of the b-sides are awesome and better than a lot of tracks from the album. This Twilight Garden and Scared as You are excellent.

Wish beating out Seventeen Seconds is a completely illogical proposition that cannot in any way be rationalized.

I voted for Disintegration, 17 Secs, Pornography, Kiss Me x 3, and Head on the Door.

Reminds me I need to listen to 17 Secs and Pornography before Halloween.

Ok, so I'm going to Texas tomorrow and will be back Tuesday night. I'll get this started on Wednesday!

I'm very disappointed about the polling for Faith.

It's WAY better than Bloodflowers and Wish. I'd put it ahead of Seventeen Seconds too, by a hair. I realize it isn't loaded with hits, but do they have more consistent records? It's 40 minutes of noir beauty.

Faith is indeed far superior to Wish and Bloodflowers, in my opinion. And I suppose that I have already made my feelings known about Seventeen Seconds, but I'll just say again that I think it is their finest work and arguably the apex of post-punk as a genre.

There's too much studio fuckery on Seventeen Seconds for it to take off; it seems like it loses momentum as often as it sustains it. I will say that, song for song, it has more highlights than any Cure album except for Disintegration and Head On The Door, which are both greatest hits packages basically. Play For Today, A Forest, At Night, M

I wouldn't call The Head on the Door - a pretty average album by Cure standards in my book - a greatest hits package. Lost of it is 80s Cure cheese at its worst and sounds pretty forgettable. And for an "unpopular opinion", I never cared for Inbetween Days.

Like many Cure tracks, even the highlights are so much better live. A Night Like This gets rid of that cheesy 80s saxophone and becomes one of my favourite Cure tracks in a live setting.
