Faith by The Cure

Released as it was between the seminal ‘Seventeen Seconds’ (1980) and ‘Pornography’ (1982), The Cure’s third full-length ‘Faith’ (yep, you guessed it, 1981) is often slightly overshadowed by the enormity of the albums either side of it. This is to do ‘Faith’ an injustice - perhaps the most gothic and portentous of all of their early LPs (and that’s saying something), ‘Faith’ is just as crucial a record in the band’s development as any of those other early tomes.

9/10 Jack 6th September 2016

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 original way. I compare The Cure's Faith album to Joy Division's Closer only to express how well I feel Robert Smith managed to make an effective album - this is original, unique and beautiful music.
