I don't listen to this album much at all, and rarely in full, so I'll have to give it a proper spin before voting. In fact, the thing I listen to the most in relation to this album is Dinosaur Jr's cover of Just Like Heaven. I know Ashley will hate me for saying this, but that cover has just ruined the original for me. So much better.

What are the good qualities of the Just Like Heaven cover? Pretentious douchebags on RYM always say it's better. I think Dinosaur Jr. is great and can't stop laughing when I hear their cover, especially the YOUUU!!!s. So fucking funny, but I wouldn't call it "good."

I didn't vote in any of the other polls, but I'm voting here because this is the one Cure album I have. I need to hear more...

I chose: The Kiss, Why Can't I Be You?, and Icing Sugar (the latter because I assumed no one else was going to pick it. Looks like I was right.).

Yeah, I hate that Dinosaur Jr. cover a metric ton.

It sounds fucking awesome. Even with the YOUUUU!!!!s. It's the guitar in particular. I'm a sucker for how it sounds, and it makes the original sound kind of flimsy and weak by comparison.

Plus, Dinosaur Jr > post-Pornography The Cure.*

*Disintegration notwithstanding

J Mascis always plays spectacular guitar solos, and Just Like Heaven is no exception. But I still prefer the original.

Not true!

Icing Sugar, How Beautiful You Are... and Like Cockatoos. This one's a really strange one; I really like about half the stuff and think it'd make a fantastic single album. But the second half DRAGS.

Also, the Dinosaur Jr. cover is fucking terrible. I think JLH works really well because it's a pure pop song at heart, and it ruins it.

(The YOOOOOOOOOUUUUUs are funny, though.)

Why Can't I Be You grates on me badly. Not shocked that it's doing well, because it certainly stands out, but ugh. Those fake processed horns sound like shit.

So I guess Liam and Traviud are going to bottle me when I say that I think the whole album would be much, much better if Dinosaur Jr covered the complete bloody thing.

WCIBY and Hot Hot Hot would probably sound great covered by Dinosaur Jr. Rough em up a bit.

Just Like Heaven is a perfect pop song and couldn't be improved in any way.

I can bottle you in advance, if you'd like.

Hurray for another Icing Sugar voter. I love that song. The drums are the best.

It's funny; I think I prefer the second half of this album more than the first. Even though two of my favorite songs on it are on the first half, I like the songs on the second half more. Most of them are really strange sounding, and I like that.

I think the first half is one of the best stuff Cure has ever put out, while the second half - with the exception of Like Cockatoos and Shiver and Shake - is just grating most of the time.

Real talk. Tho I do believe that Robert Smith quite likes the Dino Jr cover.

I'll give the next person to vote a virtual cookie if they break this tie.
