I don't know, the production seems a bit dull. Comparing the production of this new album to the production of Bloodflowers, which was almost perfect(although the songs weren't), it does seem like a disappointment. Labyrinth has a killer bass, though.

This is one band whose best work is way behind them. I can remember a time when The Cure was right up there on my list of favorite bands. I believe this is "two crap albums" in a row. time to hang it up.

Why all the Bloodflowers bashing? I don't see much wrong with it. Granted, it's not as good as some of their other work, but it was quite an improvement over Wild Mood Swings.

Agreed, I absolutely loved it when it came out. Crap, it had a Grammy nomination even. I understand people not personally liking it, but it was by no means a bad album.

Robert Smith made an awesome comment about the new ablum, something to the effect of, "If you dont like this, you dont like The Cure." I can see where he was coming from after listening to it.

I've listened to it and I'm going to buy it this afternoon. It seems to be in stores today in Europe and there's a bonus DVD involved!!

Bloodflowers was a great album. 39, Bloodflowers, Watching Me Fall, Maybe Someday...all great songs. There were fillers, unfortunantely, but it was one of the best Cure efforts in a long time.

Rollingstone's review of the new album is here:

http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/...region=triple1

4 Stars


The Cure's robert smith is a love cat with nine lives. He's the groovy big sister you always wished you had, a swirl of big, sticky hair and lipstick and New Wave angst. He still reigns as the coolest lesbian rock star of all time, even if he's technically a straight guy. The Cure are on a roll these days, and the new album is their most adventurous and passionate since Disintegration. "Before Three," "Lost" and "(I Don't Know What's Going) On . . ." are jaw-droppingly great hymns to romantic obsession -- the Cure's specialty. The first big surprise on The Cure is how loud and resonant the guitars are, with no neo-Eighties keyboards at all. The next big surprise is Smith's huge vocals -- he sounded wispy on the erratic Bloodflowers (2000), but he emotes live and direct here. People tend to associate Smith with adolescent gloom, but he's always sung smart adult love songs -- "The Lovecats," "Just Like Heaven" -- and he hits one of his all-time romantic peaks here, wailing the twisted devotion of "Before Three": "Whispering dreams, so fucked and high/It's hard to hold this night inside." It's the grooviest thing, it's a perfect dream. rob Sheffield

Here's another really cool article on The Cure I found on Rollingstone's website.

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/sto...region=triple3

They have a little write up by Robert himself on every album they've done. I'd heard about some of the older ones before, but the new one was interesting to read. Good article for Cure fans.

Hey, thanks for that link--they mentioned it in the RS article but didn't give an address. I'd been wanting to read that.
