It isn't Wendy Time, apparently.

That's the Last Dance of this album. Bland and unmemorable. Especially since they had excellent b-sides like This Twilight Garden, Scared as You or The Big Hand on their hands and they put that turd in.

I would say that This Twilight Garden is better than anything on here except Deep Green Sea. Fantastic song.

I like every track on this album but A Letter to Elise is the worst one. Kind of bland.

Did you put TIRO on my Timeline?


[BTW - How's it looking for GA tix? Or should I just give up and get a pair of nosebleeds?]

To Wish Impossible Things is one of my top 5 songs by The Cure and it's not going to make it.

No, but thanks for the suggestion.

And I've struck out so far. The paperless tickets are actually doing their job.

I love the names of the songs on this album, for what it's worth. I don't know, they're just pretty eloquent for the most part (not all of them, obviously).

This is the last Cure album I liked as a whole. After this, I've only ever liked maybe 1 or 2 songs off each successive album. They really went downhill fast after this one, imo.

I like Bloodflowers a lot. Like all Cure albums post Head on the Door (save Disintegration, which could be even longer and I wouldn't give a fuck), it's about 20 minutes too long, but I agree with Robert that it shows them doing what they're best at.

I agree. Bloodflowers needed cutting with those two quite pointless songs in the middle (The Loudest Sound and There is No If) and it would certainly be in my top 5. The only post-Wish album I really like.

I love both of those songs you think they should have cut. The Loudest Sound in particular.

I went with Apart, Deep Green Sea, Cut, and Letter to Elise. I like Friday I'm in Love, but not enough for it to warrant a vote.

I'm glad I re-listened to this, as it has been a long time and the album is better than I remembered.
