Choose your top 5 albums by The Cure

I'm still not sure if I'm going to do a full-on Cure survivor, or if I'll do something along the lines of what I did with the less popular Springsteen albums and have a one day poll where you vote for your favorite songs on each album to speed the process up.

Regardless, the purpose of this thread is to determine how many songs per album will make the final countdown.

I need something to cheer me up right now. Had some bad news today, and there's nothing like The Cure to cheer someone up, right?

Plus, it's apparently the season for Survivors on Interference, so why not join in?

Also, I have opted to NOT include Boys Don't Cry as an actual album, but it was a hard decision to make.

You should have merged Three Imaginary Boys and Boys Don't Cry, using every song released from those sessions in the poll instead of leaving off some of the all-time best Cure tracks entirely (you could of course do a b-sides/misc round that includes all of the BDC stuff, though you would have to include like 10 of those tracks in the final round because the BDC stuff will take up at least three spots, as will The Walk, Charlotte Sometimes, etc). I would have placed Boys Don't Cry 4th and Three Imaginary Boys 8th. There are maybe two songs on TIB that deserve to make the final round, whereas BDC has at least five.

So now I've got to choose the far worse Bloodflowers as my 5th pick, because the drop off from 5 to 6 on my list is pretty huge for whatever reason.

1. The Head On The Door
2. Disintegration
3. Faith
4. Seventeen Seconds
5. Bloodflowers

Faith is one of my top fifteen albums ever. Probably top ten actually. Fucking love every second of that album. If I posted my top ten Cure songs, chances are it would include every Faith track and Charlotte Sometimes - or only sacrifice a couple of them to fit in Cold, A Strange Day, and Untitled.

In general I consider myself mainly a fan of early Cure. My vote was for the four albums up to Pornography, and Disintegration.

5)Pornography

Why so little love for Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me? I know it's a bit uneven, but has some of their best songs IMO. The Kiss is a terrific intro. If Only Tonight We Could Sleep and Like Cockatoos are mesmerizing masterpieces. Yes, there are some silly songs, but overall they're fun and enjoyable (well, except for The Perfect Girl... never could stand that one).

Holy shit, if you did a full-on Cure survivor, the participation would probably be the worst in the history of Interference band survivors.

Just keep it to a poll of people's favorite Cure album. Or something along those lines. There's no god damn chance in hell that a full every album every song Cure survivor will be anything close to a success on these boards right now.
People get bored and restless over in EYKIW voting on the album by album, song by song basis of the band they signed up here to discuss.



But I realize that there are a handful of regular posters around here who love the Cure and who am I to stop your Internet fun, so go for it. It's totally your prerogative to start a voting contest about their music.

Good luck.

I am definitely in agreement with Travis that I would very likely have placed Boys Don't Cry in my top 5,had I used it. When it comes to the album round, I'm not sure what I'll do.

GaF, thank you for your input.

Disintegration
Pornography
Wish
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
Faith

Show is such a fantastic live album. Paris is also a really good complementary to that record. They were at the top of their game in 1992 as far as live shows were concerned. That's my favourite Cure line-up.

I really like Bloodflowers a lot. It's probably the album by The Cure that I get the most enjoyment out of. Probably because it was the first album of theirs I'd heard and I bought it and listened to the hell out of it on a family vacation that was across the country, the summer of my 16th year. Nostalgia.
