The Cure Survivor - Bloodflowers

PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR THREE FAVORITES

Sorry again for the delay, gang. Almost done with the semester

So, after a riveting round of Wild Mood Swings we are left with the Tier 3 survivor looking something like this:

Want (6 Votes)
Mint Car (5 Votes)

They will join:

Boys Don't Cry
10:15 Saturday Night
Jumping Someone Else's Train
Killing an Arab

Oh wow, we hadn't had a tier 3 album in a while!

So, now we arrive at the very last Tier 2 album, Bloodflower

PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR THREE FAVORITES

After this, we're down to only two albums left!

Gut reaction is "Out of This World", "Maybe Someday" and "There Is No If..." but I need to give it a spin to be sure.

BTW, poll is open for two days. I'll run the self-titled over the weekend and then we'll finish with 4:13 Dream Monday and Tuesday. I'll probably only be running the Join the Dots and B-Side rounds for 24 hours.

I've never heard Coming Up. Was it on a special release?

According to Wiki: (Bonus track on the Australian and Japanese versions of Bloodflowers. It also appears on all vinyl versions and Join the dots box set.) Where it is apparently track 6.

I assumed since there are a few Aussies and Audiophiles voting, it's better safe than sorry. I can still put it in the appropriate Join the Dots round if necessary.

Good Lord, what an album! I listened to it TOO much after I first heard it and got a little sick of it. Now it's been a year or so since I last heard it, and the break has proved to be QUITE a refresher.

Not sure what to vote for, still though. Every song between "Maybe Someday" and "The Loudest Song" is excellent. Plus the title track. Guh!

I bought the Australian release just to get this bonus track. Not in my top three, though.

Also, thought this was a good place for this in case no one has ever seen it. Behold early internet music videos:

I almost feel like I had seen that somewheres before. That's actually pretty cool looking.

This album was my first Cure album. It's only a hair behind Disintegration for me.

It's been so long since I've listened to Bloodflowers that I've forgotten pretty much everything about it.

Bloodflowers, Watching Me Fall, 39

But I regret Maybe Someday not making it. The only really good album post-Wish.

This album is at times strikingly beautiful. A lot of it bleeds together, though, so it is hard to pick favorites. I will say that Last Day of Summer is my favorite track here. I think Watching Me Fall and 39 will be my other choices.

Random side note:

I remember when this album came out, looking at the song title "39" and thinking, "Wow, Robert Smith is old". I'm now only 4 years from that.

Didn't even realize that's what it was referring to.

You know what troubles me? That he's NOW 51? It doesn't seem like 2000 could POSSIBLY have been that long ago.


I should probably vote.

I can tell it's late, as I thought you were talking about the presidential election for about 5 seconds after reading this.
