Ah, what to say about the Cure? Robert Smith's long-running outfit garnered an initial reputation as miserable goths - and with their early albums like Pornography and Seventeen Seconds it's easy to see why. But even as their cartoonish presentation...read more »

The Cure
Seventeen Seconds

Seventeen Seconds was the second album by the Cure originally released in 1980. It was too bleak for bassist Michael Dempsey who left after hearing Robert Smith's demos. Smith went his own merry/miserable way in the end and the album is a fine example of their spindly proto-goth. It contains one of their finest moments in menacing single A Forest which exemplifies the dark nature of the material on the album.

THE CURE: 40 LIVE - CURÆTION-25 + ANNIVERSARY

A choice of four DVD/BLU-RAY types of an extravaganza of the Cure-ness for all you long term followers and those smitten by their recent Glastonbury triumph. There's two different concerts. One is their Meltdown performance when they played one song of each of their thirteen studio albums and the other is their twenty nine song set at their 40th Anniversary concert at Hyde Park in front of 650000 adoring fans. So much the Cure here it will keep you going all winter. 

The Cure
Pornography

It's 1982 and the Cure had yet to embark on the brighter more commercial tunes that would lead them to become true indie legends. Pornography then was a last depressed splurt of gothy bleating before they finally got their act together. It may have frustrated everyone who listened to it at the time but in the intervening years its uncompromising, challenging atmospheres have seen it become a fan favourite and the sort of artistic statement that has influenced key artists that trailed in their wake. Not for their more faint hearted listeners but a classic album nonetheless.    

The Cure
The Head On The Door

The Head on the Door was the Cure's sixth album originally released in 1985. It was preceded by Inbetween Days a song that sounded so much like New Order that Peter Hook's mum rang him up when she heard it on the radio thinking it was their new single. The Head on the Door matched this kind of newfound pop appeal (see also Close to Me) with more bleak, miserable material to satisfy their black clad fanbase.  

The Cure
Three Imaginary Boys

Three Imaginary Boys was where it all started for Robert Smith and his the Cure. It found the band in their pre-hair lacquer days playing a form of primitive post-punk that was compared at the time to Wire or Joy Division. By the time of 1980s Seventeen Seconds Smith and Co were nearer to realising their future aesthetic but Three Imaginary Boys is still a fascinating and compelling debut.

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 funk (Hot Hot Hot!!!), some hints at what Disintegration would bring, and of course the mighty Just Like Heaven. 2LP reissue, as is only proper.

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 release of the record too! Double LP on Universal.

The Cure
Disintegration

Disintegration was The Cure's 8th studio album and one of their bleakest. After a few years of commercial success, the band returned to their gloomy gothy roots on an album that - despite it's lack of actual tunes - has since become somewhat of a classic. Despite it's unrelentingly somber mood it still contains future the Cure staples as Lullaby, Plainsong and Lovesong. One way or another it is a true artistic statement from Robert Smith and his long running collective.
