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.

10/10 Jack 6th September 2016
Straight from the hearts, souls and nimble fingertips of The Cure comes Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, an eccentric album of joy, sorrow, anger, dizzy love, and outright insanity. This, The Cure's 8th studio album, is packed with goodies to suit every mood; from the classic, doom-ridden Goth that made the band famous, to the exceptional '80s synth pop that made them versatile, and everywhere in between. Every song is interesting, to say the least, and most are outright gems. A sure new wave masterpiece.
