Album Review

On the surface, Wish sounds happier than Disintegration, and the sunny British Invasion hooks of the hit single "Friday I'm in Love" certainly seem to indicate that the record is a brighter affair than its predecessor. Dig a little deeper and the album reveals itself to be just as tortured, and perhaps more despairing. Granted, the sound of the record, with its jangling guitars and simple arrangements, is more immediately accessible than the epic gloom of Disintegration, but nearly every song finds Robert Smith wracked with depression. Unfortunately, the even-handed production makes the record sound very similar, so it is less compelling than it might have been, but there are a handful of gems ("High," "A Letter to Elise," "Wendy Time," "Friday I'm in Love") that make the record worthwhile.

Customer Reviews


I bought this album because of Friday I'm In Love and Trust.was pleasantly surprised to find that the rest of the album contained many more hidden gems from The Cure's impressive discography. While its not as strong an album as Disintegration or as immediate as Head on the Floor, I found it a much more cohesive than Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and it gets better with every listen. My new favourite Cure song is A Letter to Elise! I can't get this tune out of my head! Hey kids, its NOT a Blink 182 song! :P HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ALBUM.


This is an amazing album. Trust is a beautiful song. It's amazing what these guys can do.

Beautiful album

This is my second favourite album, only Disintegration tops this. The cd is the perfect mix of seemingly happy music and wonderfully worded, well constructed lyrics. There's a reason The Cure have been around for so long. In concert they are still brilliant and hopefully they come out with the albu mthey've been promising for near two years soon! Even if you aren't a huge fan, this album will make you realise why they have so many followers.

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as the Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith (born April 21, 1959), the band became well-known for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often hid the diversity of the Cure's music. At the outset, the Cure played jagged, edgy pop songs before slowly evolving into a more textured outfit. As one of the...
