I don't know if The Cure have a single album cover I like. Sometimes I'll start to think I like some of the covers (Seventeen Seconds for example), then I'll realize I have no idea what the cover is, and that I'd probably think it sucks if it wasn't a Cure album.

I always just assumed it was a head on a door, just so I could sleep at night.

Same with Peter Gabriel's Security cover. Not sure I want to know what's on that one though.

It's one of those images where I can tell what they did to make it, and it just seems really silly. It's three guys with awful 80s hair, camera tilted slightly to the right to make it a hair off-kilter, then run through an ass-load of effects and turned this awful magenta color. Nothing really profound happening. I will say that it suits the music, but I don't find it as engaging to look at as Seventeen Seconds or Disintegration. The former, outside of that hideous, Metallica-esque early font of theirs (what were they thinking?!?!?), is such a perfect summary of the album's sound.

I really like the early logo as well. Guess we're just on different aesthetic wavelengths here.

I'll give you this: that's probably the strongest reaction that I have ever seen to a band logo.

I really don't think that there is a weak track on Head on the Door. My personal favorites from it are The Blood and Sinking, although Kyoto Song also makes a strong case for one of those slots. Come to think of it, the only thing that I do not like about the album is the cover - I have spent more time than I would like to admit trying to figure out what the hell that image is supposed to be.
I don't think I've actually listened to much of the material on the bonus discs (I think once I accidentally left it going, but was enjoying myself so much, I didn't bother to turn it off, but I can't remember which album that was for. Might have been THOTD), though I have heard Join the Dots once. No, In Between Days RS Home Demo is the first track after the album ends, and it has endeared itself to me so much, I get silly emotional when it comes on. When his wife goes, "Have you finished yet?" at the beginning, I'm all eeeeeee!

To add to the festival performance Bonoz2012 mentioned:

Quote:
This year's Vivid Live festival takes place from May 27 to June 6 at Sydney, Australia's famed Sydney Opera House. The fest is curated by Stephen Pavlovic, head of the Modular label, and he's snagged a fairly big get to headline the whole shebang: goth-rock greats the Cure, who will perform their first three albums in their entirety for the first-- and, they say, only-- time.

The Cure's "Reflections" event will take place May 31 and June 1, and it'll feature the band playing their 1979 debut, Three Imaginary Boys, 1980's Seventeen Seconds, and 1981's Faith. The lineup will be made up of both present and past members of the Cure, and the whole thing will be recorded for a DVD. Pretty cool.

Wow, that is awesome. I really love those early albums, and they do (or did) some epic things in the live setting with songs like A Forest and Faith.

Yeah, I seriously lost it when they did just a small 4 song set (At Night, M, Play For Today, A Forest) of Seventeen Seconds songs when I saw them on their last tour. It was definitely the highlight of the night for me. Seeing all of Seventeen Seconds and Faith would be crazy.

I really cannot express how much I love Seventeen Seconds. Every time that I listen to it, I am amazed at how something so austere and sparse in terms of song-craft can convey such great emotion. It's a great credit to Smith's prowess as a songwriter.
