I find that about Morrissey...though there does seem to be a bit of a Bob vs Moz thing

Why doesn't anybody like Faith? That's my favourite

Disentegration is one of the greatest albums ever. Plainsong is the greatest opening track of all time. When it kicks in after those chimes, oh man. And Closedown is so awesome. I love this album, and don't really like the Cure all that much.

Finally word of clever human being. That album is more than BRILLIANT. Pictures of you, Fascination street and every song is f...brilliant. Robert Smith is a totally different guy than Morrissey, btw.

Music had never done that to me before and I was completely surprised and astounded by my reaction. And in fact, I've never really had a first reaction like that to any piece of music ever again . . . . . at least upon a first listen.


Hope that doesn't set the bar too high, Lemon.

A fantastic album, one of my favorites.
Almost every song is simply spectacular.

The album is perfect, every song is brilliant, I don't remember half the song names on it, it's one of those albums where you don't pay attention to the songs, it's just an experience to listen to straight through...*turns album on* . So yeah basically it's amazing

Disintegration is a really good album. It's by no means the best Cure album though, I feel Faith and Pornography are a lot stronger than Disintegration and a lot more cohesive overall.

*raises hand* I love Faith, probably about as much as Disintegration actually. Seventeen Seconds is right up there too.

I've never been a Cure fan, but this thread peaked my interest and I downloaded the album last night.

It's sooooooo good! Still listening...
