The Cure Survivor - Faith

Two down!

"Play for Today" and "A Forest" dominated the Seventeen Seconds survivor. It looked like "In Your House" was going to take the third spot, but then a surge of votes came in for "M" and now we have our three tracks:

Moving on to the Tier 2 Survivor:
Play for Today - 12 votes
A Forest - 12 votes
M - 7 Votes

Now we come to the Faith survivor. Also a tier 2 album, it will have three songs going through.

Please vote for your THREE FAVORITE songs from Faith.

This thread will close in 48 hours, get crackin'!

This is a highly consistent album. I think I need a few refresher listens before I can choose any specific songs.

This is a quite a tough call for me. I'll be glad to clear this up with a listen tomorrow.

I have only heard this album once and don't have it, nor do I have anything like spotify. Therefore, I shall abstain from voting.

I'd vote for all eight if I could. For me, this is far and away the greatest thing The Cure have ever done. Fucking sensational album.

The Holy Hour and The Funeral Party are my top two tracks, but I'm not yet sure what I'll give my third vote to.

So hard...

But yeah, I picked All Cats Are Grey and The Funeral Party (because they're two of the most emotional songs in The Cure' oeuvre), and Doubt is a great palate cleanser.

But this might be one of my top ten albums ever.

Nice. This album is crazy consistent. Funeral Party is goth as fuck.

This is very difficult. One of the most consistent records in their career. The Funeral Party might be the most depressing thing I ever heard. Which is a good thing. This and All Cats Are Grey are two of my favourite tracks here - the funeral atmosphere created is just stunning. For a third one I'll pick Primary, just to speed things up a little.

Primary and The Funeral Party, #1 and #2, easy.

#3 was tougher, but I took Drowning Man.

All Cats Are Grey is the only right answer.

Then Primary and something else, I haven't decided yet.

This is hard.

I think All Cats Are Grey, the Funeral Party and Drowning Man but I'm just not positive.

Went with Primary, All Cats Are Grey and Funeral Party. The last two go amazingly well together.

Surprised The Holy Hour is not doing too well, but I'm very glad to see The Funeral Party polling so strongly.

I think my third pick will be either Primary or Doubt, but I'm going to give the album one more listen before I decide.

Sucked it up and went with Primary. Come on, somebody vote for The Holy Hour and The Drowning Man so that those two and All Cats Are Grey can be tied and go through to the finals together.
