The Glove has another high-profile member that didn't have anything to do with The Cure. Songwriting credits were given to Severin/Smith.

Smashing Pumpkins shouldn't be Smashing Pumpkins now in my mind, but that's a different discussion. You've avoided the other examples nicely.

Blue Sunshine in my mind is like a beta version of The Top. They are both intriguing and often rewarding, but neither would rank among my favorite Smith-directed albums, regardless of the Cure moniker being on there or not.

Hollow Island was the only one that didn't vote for Disintegration. Why are we speaking to him anyway?

I like it and Wild Mood Swings more than most seem to, but not enough to include it with the few we need to pick.

With all the Head on the Door mentionings, I'm surprised no one has brought up Kyoto Song, The Blood, and Push. Those are some really strong fan-fave non-single tracks. They play all of them from time to time over the last few tours, Push especially.

I actually like the video with the flamenco dancers, but I think it was made by the label without the band's involvement or blessing.

I enjoy Lost, Labyrinth, The Promise and Going Nowhere. The rest I can go without ever listening again.

End off the World is one of my faves by the band period.

Oh, I definitely mentioned Push a page back. I'd mention it again, but it's already been brought up.

Alt.end is a pretty decent song from the s/t, but eh.

Real talk, all underrated tunes. I think the album would have been much stronger minus the poppier songs which were admittedly not up to par.

I don't see why the profile of the other member should impact how the project is seen. If Reeves Gabrels plays on the next Cure album should it not be called the Cure?

Every Cure record aside from the Head on the Door has songs credited to all members, but Smith has said 80% comes from him, and I don't think Blue Sunshine is any different.

I understand why it wasn't called "The Cure" (two pals, not Lol) but given how it fits in perfectly with Japanese Whispers and the Top, how the Cure at that time didn't have anything close to a set line-up, and how Smith was supposed to sing it, I consider it to be a Cure record. I can respect how one wouldn't, though. It has a different name and singer.

The other examples were of collaborative super groups (Crooked Vultures) or unions of two bands with fixed line-ups (Temple of the Dog). The Vultures could have been QUOTSA, since the've had a lot of line-up changes. The Cure was neither of those things.

Dude, it's not a Cure album. Case closed. The end.

Oh, and The Glove basically is a supergroup, so the analogy fits like a glove.

 
I'm sorry for that pun, I had to.

As I recall, Temple of the Dog existed before the bands the singers later became famous for, no?
