as ive said on here many times, ive hate, have always hated, and will always hate, the motherfucking cure. i honestly have tried to get into them, but i find it virtually impossible to not get annoyed by them. i cant stand any of thier records.

Yeah, "pornography" is amongst my least-favorite albums I've ever sat through. Sorry, everyone.

The only time I've ever been pulled over by a cop was the only time I ever listened to the cure in my car, as well. (3 Imaginary Boys.. but still) Coincedence? I dunno.

i still like 'em...have seen them three times, most recently on this tour, and they still put on a hell of a performance (well, not in energy and kineticism, but overall impact).

you can read my review here and see some photos by clicking on Porl (one of my fave shots lately...i got a 2' x 3' poster made of this particular shot)

I find the thought of listening to them better than the actual experience. I quite like their stuff, but not as much as I imagine I will.

Close to Me is cool though.

Love love love them. Find it hard to believe Atsonicpark and Batreleaser don't like em, considering.
Bloodflowers is the only decent thing they've done in a decade though...although the latest single gives me a bit of hope.

Did you mean Standing on the beach (the B-sides) ?

No, I meant the singles collection Staring at the Sea, I always get the lyrics from Killing an Arab mixed up.

I love The Cure up to (and including) Disintegration (and this has not changed for 17 years).

I recently listened to Wish again and it's much better than I remembered though.

Favorite records : 17 seconds / Faith / Pornography / Disintegration / Standing on the beach (the B-sides) / Boys don't cry

Honorable mentions : Kiss me / Three imaginary boys / Wish / The head on the door (a bit uneven nevertheless)

Average to meh : Japanese whispers (contains a few gems like Lament though) / The top (the title track is brilliant though) / everything post-Wish.

Well I still think he has a pretty unique timbre.

He sounds more like he's about to throw up than cry in recent years.

Quite fitting for their recent output, actually.

'standing' was the LP; 'staring' was the cd edition and had more tracks.

Yes but I'm referring to the B-sides on side B of Standing on the beach (which were only on the cassette edition I think).

They liked doing the bonus tracks on cassette thing in the 80s. I remember gettig "Carnage Visors" on the B-Side of the UK cassette of Faith, which was the only way you could get it at the time. One of my favorite things by them, too.
Also, if you got the cassette of "concert," you got all those archival "curiosity anomalies" on the B-side, which were great. Some live stuff and radio appearances and things, and a version of "In Your House" with totally different lyrics.
