The Cure Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

The Cure
Faith

Robert Smith has expressed his appreciation for the music of Joy Division and I would say that this album, Faith, is The Cure's Closer - dark, monotone, toy drumming with layers of anguish and compelling lyrics. "The Funeral Party" is like Joy Division's "Eternal" - dealing with loss in an effective, but origin...view item »

The Cure
The Head On The Door

This is the Cure album to start with. But maybe that's because this is the one I happened to start with. The styles of music on this album vary widely and the lyrics are haunting as always. This is definitely one of my favourite albums and seems to fit a variety of moods and settings. If you only know the Cure's recent stuff, definitely go out a...view item »

The Cure
Seventeen seconds

The Cure's 1979 debut Three Imaginary Boys, a strong album in its own right, did point the way toward Seventeen Seconds, in particular on tracks like "Another Day" and especially the title track. There's no denying though that Seventeen Seconds marks a major turning point for The Cure--the sound here is more thoroughly haunting, more claustropho...view item »

The Cure
Three Imaginary Boys

While this album is a classic without a shadow of a doubt, I have problems with the LIlith reissue. First, 10.15 Saturday Night originally segues into Accuracy - not in this reissue. The label placed a gap in between the two and you can hear still a few milliseconds of the tail end of the first track into the second. Second, The Weedy Burton is ...view item »

The Cure
Pornography

One of the best gothic albums. It does not reduce the album's quality to search for comparisons. The icy keyboard, the whining voice, the harsh guitar and the muffled drums make it sound like a strange mix of Virgin Prunes and Joy Division. The dark keyboard of the title tra...view item »

The Cure
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

The Cure’s seventh album, from 1987, was a sprawling, raucous 18-track double that gave them scope to hit all the bases. There’s doomy bombast (The Kiss), Eastern exotica (If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, The Snakepit), whimsical pop (Why Can't I Be You?), a Baudelaire rewrite (How Beautiful You Are…), straight...view item »

The Cure
Entreat Plus

Universal continue in their valiant efforts to gradually reissue the whole hefty catalogue of The Cure. Entreat is a live album from the band’s enormous 1989 tour, recorded at Wembley Arena. The Plus signifies 20 minutes of extra material not available on the original CD. Seems to be the first vinyl relea...view item »

The Cure
Disintegration

The album is beyond solid and I don't think statements that this may be the best album ever are far off. After reading some reviews, I can tell that some get it and some don't, and that's just how it goes. I have listened to many songs from different groups off and on over the years, but this is one of the few whole albums that I listen to in it...view item »

The Cure
The Only One

Oh dear oh dear....The Cure are back with a single called 'The Only One'. From the very first second onwards it sounds exactly like The Cure, tuneful indie with a Fat Bob vocal so whiny that it is actually dangerous to the ears. This song is a form of torture and proceeds to go precisely nowhere. It has the feel of a sweaty middle aged double gl...view item »

The Cure
The Top

Universal continue in their valiant efforts to gradually reissue the whole hefty catalogue of The Cure to vinyl. The Top is their fifth album, first released in 1984. It’s an unusual entry in The Cure discography, recorded with an experimental attitude that took in psychedelia, Spanish guitar, Mid...view item »
