Just gave the album a spin to settle my fourth vote, and I'd forgotten just how good The Figurehead and A Short Term Effect are. Still, I think The Hanging Garden is a shade superior to both of them and it won my final vote ... though now looking at the poll, A Short Term Effect could really use some love. Must admit I've always found Siamese Twins to be a complete dud.

A Strange Day/Cold has to be one of the best pairings of songs on any Cure album outside of Faith.

The Figurehead, because that may just be my favourite Cure song. The rest I literally picked at random. *shrug*

Siamese Twins should get more credit. I blame Axver. You're all kissing his ass anyway.

I remember this album took awhile to grow on me. But I liked it a lot in the end. I should listen to it again sometime as it's been ages.

I'm mystified that Siamese Twins is doing as well as Cold, which is probably my #1 Cure song. Siamese Twins is easily one of the worst songs from the 17S/Faith/Pornography period.
