The way this is said in passing as if it's just people who had one off memberships in The Cure neglected the major announcement in this news.


LOL IS BACK (at least for Faith!!!!

I arrived at Disintegration the other night. Hoooooo shit. "Plainsong" is just so sonically brilliant and it just stays great until the end. I seriously think I love every single moment of that album. Every. Single. Moment.

Ranking Cure albums, because I can:

1. Disintegration
1. The Head On The Door

Yeah that's no typo. Definitely a tie, as my preference depends completely on my mood.

3. Faith
4. Seventeen Seconds
5. Boys Don't Cry
6. Bloodflowers

7. Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me (yeahhh...good, but I feel no desire to listen to it in full again)
8. Pornography (would be above Bloodflowers if it weren't for the lyrics...holy shit, he needed a cookie or something)
9. Wish

10. The Top
11. 4:13 Dream

I really am just trying to be optimistic and believe that this means SOMETHING is in the works.

Well if we're ranking Cure albums:

Exceptional Cure Listening
1. Faith

Very Fine Cure Listening
2. Pornography
3. Disintegration

Fine Cure Listening
4. Seventeen Seconds
5. Boys Don't Cry/Three Imaginary Boys/whatever

Decent Cure Listening
6. The Head On The Door
7. Bloodflowers

Mediocre Cure Listening
8. Kiss Me etc.

Pissweak Cure Listening
9. The Top

What I've heard from most of the other albums hasn't inspired me to exactly run out and hear them in full.

I actually should have had Wild Mood Swings under that last header as well. I like the album a bit more than average, far as I can tell, but I never seem to return to that one either.

Outside of your silly THOTD placement, we agree, Axxo.

THOTD partly gets marked down severely because of how much I despise Close To Me. Inbetween Days, Push, and A Night Like This are awesome, but I rarely listen beyond them.

Oh you have made me sad. "Close to Me" is just such a fun fun song.

I remember when Close To Me was on the radio often when I was a kid and I hated it, but had no idea who did it. Well, imagine my surprise when I was working my way through The Cure's discography for the first time and discovered they did it! Had I known that, I probably never would have listened to The Cure in the first place. I find the song creepy and utterly nauseating; everything about it is off-putting. You may think I'm exaggerating but I have such a viscerally negative reaction to the song that I can barely sit through 30 seconds of it.

These days I keep confusing its title with Come To Me, the song Bobert did with 65daysofstatic that is, fortunately, awesome.
