Pornography by The Cure

It's 1982 and the Cure had yet to embark on the brighter more commercial tunes that would lead them to become true indie legends. Pornography then was a last depressed splurt of gothy bleating before they finally got their act together. It may have frustrated everyone who listened to it at the time but in the intervening years its uncompromising, challenging atmospheres have seen it become a fan favourite and the sort of artistic statement that has influenced key artists that trailed in their wake. Not for their more faint hearted listeners but a classic album nonetheless.

8/10 Jack 31st August 2016

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 track, the eerie intros of "A Strange Day" and "A Short Term Effect" are hard to surpass by other bands. The lyrics are a mix of anger and desperation of being misunderstood and nightmarish impressions. I think Robert even said that he could see how it would 'inspire thoughts of suicide'.
