iTunes Review

After three decades, The Cure’s Robert Smith knows how to make a Cure album. He knows, for instance, it should begin with slow, dark guitar chords that grind into an echo canyon for at least six minutes (“Underneath the Stars”). There should be moments where he moans in existential futility with a heart wrecked by unfulfilled passion (“The Real Snow White,” “The Scream”). He should write a few quick pop songs for good measure (“The Only One,” “The Perfect Boy”). And all of this should be brought together as if Smith has an overall concept or vision that ties everything into one piece. That concept, however, isn’t a literal one. It’s a sonic one. And Smith infuses 4:13 Dream with a massive sense of grandeur that only he can gracefully pull off without seeming like a megalomaniac. He unites the quick jab of “Freakshow” and the nearly countrified “Siren Song” with the ambient forest ruling “It’s Over,” uniting the different approaches with his eager and yearning vocals that are more playful than ever, reaching a near yodel in the sillier moments. It’s this flexibility that’s enabled him to keep the Cure from going stale after all these years.

We need these in 256 and unprotected

I love The Cure and would love to buy this disc off iTunes ... but I simply can't bring myself to buying anything but dime a dozen songs with the normal 128 kb/s protected iTunes system anymore. Treasured albums shouldn't be so compressed or restricted. It's time for the labels to embrace the digital age and get rid of these restrictions. Oh well ... off to the store to buy an uncompressed version of what is likely to be another solid Cure album.

It's not a nightmare, but it's not a dream either, it's... a great new Cure album!

I always love getting a new cure album around this time of year. The songs seem to be more poignant as the days get colder and we roll into Winter. Like all good/great albums, you don't quite get it the first few times you play it. That's because like all Cure albums, you have to travel through them a few times before the songs really get into your system. Fear not, the journey is worth it, you'll come out of it a fan of this album as well. If you like The Cure, hey, it's another Cure album, can you ever go wrong? This album is more in the lines of "Wish", "Head On The Door", "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me", the whole roller coaster ride that Robert Smith and the band craft better than any other... Good job!


After 30 years, they can still make a brilliant record from start to finish. The guys, paired with young gun producer Keith Uddin will satisfy even their harshest critics and fans with this album. Upbeat and Vibrant, a definite asset to any music lovers collection. Looking forward to the Dark Album. 4:13 Dream did not disappoint. Highly Recommended

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...
