This album is mediocre at the very best. On the same level as the last one, which was their worst IMO. Anyways, I don't get the hate for Bloodflowers. It was a great album and the one which should have ended the band. Hell, I'll put it in my top 5 as well. Watching Me Fall, 39 and the title song are all great, great songs.

It's funny, when the self-titled album came out, everyone here loved it. It's interesting to see so much hate for it now.

I never heard their self-titled

To be honest this was only the third studio album of theirs I've heard

"the only one" and "underneath the stars" are quite good tracks and they keep growing on me. "the perfect boy" instantly touched my heart, brought back memories.

i think there are some good songs, some typically cure-ish, but the sound of the whole album could be better.

i listened yesterday... i don't get what you people don't like about it... the singer's voice has aged well at least.

As much as it pains me to say it, it does seem as though Robert Smith is becoming his own tribute act. This album seems to be attempting to capture pieces of all The Cure's finest albums without ever hitting the mark ("Underneath the Stars" = Disintegration, "The Only One" = Wish, "The Scream" = Pornography, etc.). Or perhaps I need a few more listens.

I listened to it the other day and enjoyed it quite a bit. Don't know why there're so many negative thoughts. Maybe I should listen again?

One of the songs came up on shuffle yesterday and I was really liking it and then it just ended...reminds me of Accelerate where the best songs would just end way too early preventing them from becoming anything special

it isn't anything new or inovative, ''just'' typical cure song we all like. but robert can still write catchy tunes and remains as emotional as always.

While I would personally say that I feel it's the weakest Cure album to date, at the end of the day, it's still not all that bad. I personally LOVE 'Underneath the Stars', and don't get the "trying to sound like Disintegration" argument at all. That IS what The Cure has sounded like for decades. I sorta wonder if some of the people arguing that have actually heard all of The Cure's albums or not. In my opinion, it's one of the best sounding tracks they've done in years, I love it. Outside of the singles that have already been mentioned in this thread, I am also liking 'The Reasons Why'.

I was shocked that Pitchfork was so positive (relatively) about it in their review:

Well, I am quite familiar with The Cure's entire discography and have trouble seeing how Disintegration is in any way emblematic of a "typical" Cure sound. The epic, brooding quality of that album is really only reflected in Bloodflowers - albums like Seventeen Seconds, which was sparse and minimalist, The Top, which was manically discursive, and even Wish hardly resemble Disintegration at all, outside perhaps of lyrical content.
