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

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
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 »

Reissue of The Cure’s greatest hits compilation from 2001 on Polydor. The heaviest hitters from the gothic post-punk band, with their biggest tracks from across their back catalogue from 1979 - 1999, including classics Boys Don’t Cry, Lullaby, Just Like Heaven, Close To Me, Fri...view item »

Torn Down: Mixed Up Extra 2018

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh? Town Down: Mixed Up 2018 is the vinyl version of the most interesting disc in the CD reissue box: a set of sixteen totally new remixes by ...view item »

Mixed Up (Remastered)

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh? And what a reissue: Mixed Up’s fancier editions include an extra disc of rare, deleted 80’s remixes alongside the original trackli...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
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
Acoustic Hits

Released for record store day 2017, here we have the second cd from The Cure’s greatest hit compilation released in 2001 getting it's own vinyl release for the first time. Acoustic versions of all the tracks that featured on the main compilation. Features versions of Lullaby, Friday I’m In Love, ...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
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 »

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 »

Standing On A Beach - The Singles

Standing On A Beach - The Singles is The Cure’s first singles compilation. Originally released in 1986, the album contains the band’s singles that were released between 1978 and 1985. The title is taken from a line in the song Killing An Arab which was heavily influenced by Albert Camus’ novel...view item »

The Cure
Bestival Live 2011

So the bottom line here is that it is essentially a Legal Bootleg. The recording was made via the sound board at the show. This is the very same way many of the bands best live bootlegs were recorded. Is it a amazing set? No. That said, this same band line-up was nothing less than outstanding at the Reflections shows - just a month or two after ...view item »

Hypnagogic States

The four emo remixes are utter rubbish, and made me sad that Robert's still making music, but the 65daysofstatic remix (which is their remixes of each of the four tracks squished together into one lonnnnng track) is utterly awesome, and made me happy (but not in a Friday I'm In Love kinda way, fortunately).Also, ...view item »

4:13 Dream

And to drag me right back up to date I've got The Cure, a little known indie rock outfit with goth undertones from the charming town of Crawley, which is home to the nations largest population of Angorran moss spiders. These fabulous creatures are particularly fond of oversized 80's Hi-Tek trainers and badly applied crimson lipstick from Boots and ...view item »

The Cure
Perfect Boy

If Clint were here he'd no doubt give the new Cure single a good kicking.. The poor chap almost got lynched after his last review, he received death threats and is now under 24 police protection. He has to check under his car for explosives every morning he drives to work. It's no life that, I tell thee. Poor chap's life destroyed, he's constantly ...view item »

The Cure
Sleep When I'm Dead

This is a really upbeat little ditty from some young upstarts called The Cures, 'Sleep When I'm Dead' isn't a Bon Jovi cover but that's OK - it's got a catchy chorus and great verses! It has funky guitar and it'd sound really good on the soundtrack to Shaft! This lot could be the next The James Browns!...view item »

The Cure
Freakshow

After Clint's savaging of their last single I feel I should give The Cure a bit of a hand up after they've fallen foul of their dicky zimmer frame. 'Freakshow' is probably the perkiest number I've heard them do with indecipherable slurred wonky lyrics and lots of wah wah guitar. I just can't get upset, even though this is obviously the sound of an ...view item »

Remember The Cure? Yeah that band fronted by a portly goth with the worst lipstick application skills in the northern hemisphere?

Well they went absolutely bobbins, split up 10 times & everyone ritually ignored them as they continued to release crap albums & ...view item »
