2/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 May 2008
Oh dear oh dear....The Cure are back with a single called 'The Only One'. From the very first second onwards it sounds exactly like The Cure, tuneful indie with a Fat Bob vocal so whiny that it is actually dangerous to the ears. This song is a form of torture and proceeds to go precisely nowhere. It has the feel of a sweaty middle aged double glazing salesman going through the motions one last time knowing that the young brash newcomers are using his old tricks and getting better commissions.
Poor old millionaire Fat Bob - trying to keep up with the kids and getting it hopelessly wrong. I mean, who uses wah wah guitar these days for Christ's sake? He actually sounds pissed on the B side on a song which somehow manages to be even worse. Retire. Now.
6/10 KPC Customer review, 13th June 2008OK, Clint has a point, certainly, although rather than sad I'm simply unmoved. When I 1st heard this track I thought "It sounds like The Cure." Hero worship aside, this isn't a particularly strong track (neither is "NY Trip"). It suffers from what all recent Cure suffers from: claustrophobia. The most memorable Cure tracks have a feeling of space somewhere in them, or they are so gloomy they're supposed to feel enclosed.
10/10 Jakey Boy Customer review, 14th May 2008Clint any chance I can watch you hang on that noose of yours, I would pay to see that, pay double to kick the chair from under your feet!
The Cures track is fab and very summery, makes you feel good to be alive, where if I had my way you would not be.
