The Head On The Door by The Cure

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.

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 and get this album. If you've never heard of the Cure and don't just want a greatest hits album, get this one. If you don't care...well, then nevermind...
