The Cure Survivor - The Cure

PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR 2 FAVORITES

With the end of the Bloodflowers round, we have finished up tier 2. Just two albums to go!

Tier 2:
Maybe Someday - 7 votes
Out of This World - 5 Votes
The Last Day of Summer - 5 Votes
Just Like Heaven
Why Can't I Be You?
The Kiss
The Caterpillar
Shake Dog Shake
Dressing Up
Primary
All Cats are Grey
The Funeral Party
Play for Today
A Forest
M

I'm probably going to regret this decision, but I'm opening the self-titled album's thread over the weekend. It will close Monday night at 9 CST. If there's a blow-out (which I expect), we'll close up early and move on to 4:13 Dream.

This is a tier 1 album so please VOTE FOR YOUR 2 FAVORITES

Did you include all of the b-sides as well? Not a problem if you did - I just don't remember there being that many tracks.

Going with Lost and Labyrinth. The former might be my favorite Cure song of the 2000s. It has an edge to it that is lacking from so much of their work post-Wish.

Also, just now listening to A Forest, I'll be disappointed if it doesn't win the whole thing. What a perfect slice of minimalist, atmospheric post-punkery.

The double vinyl had 15 tracks. "Why Can't I Be Me?" and "Your God Is Fear" are the only b-sides from the era that didn't make the album in some fashion, IIRC.

Also, I waited outside Tower Records at midnight to buy this album. I think that was the last midnight release I ever went to. Everyone else was there to buy some Brandy album.

How come you guys vote on favorites for the Cure, while we have to vote for least favorites for U2?
