The Top by The Cure

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, Middle-Eastern sounds and even a little metal.

6/10 Jack 31st August 2016

Robert's uncomfortable vocals on this record make it unlistenable for most people who aren't Cure fans. For those of us who like the band, we can appreciate how they fit the music. This is Bob Smith and crew (mostly him playing everything, I suspect) at their most psychedelic. Anticipating Mr Smiths collaboration with Steve Severin on The Glove- this is a flat-out candy romp of fun stuff. In the end, The Top is more of a curiosity than a coherent musical statement. Robert Smith was really branching out here, reinventing the Cure's sound
