A Masterpiece Revisited

Disintegration is an amazing and beautiful album that is considered The Cure's best and now this remastered version proves how great this album is. Delirious Nights and Pirate Ships are just beautiful.
This remastered version just proves how great Disintegration was and still is. Album's like this put modern artists like Miley Cyrus to shame.

A genuine classic

I first heard this album when I was 18, 2 years after it's release and thought it was great, a classic. 19 years later and it's still just as good.
The album's 21 years old and still sounds as fresh as it did back then. It's a masterpiece and this remastered version sounds just that bit sharper.

Considering the dross being released these days it's lucky we have these older albums to fall back on. Honestly, will anyone care about or even remember the talentless crap pushed out by the likes Dizzy Rascal or Rhiana in a few years time?

Probably preaching to the crowd here. But buy this album, it's just gorgeous.

Essential listening for anyone that loves music

Back in 1989 this was unlike anything else being released at the same time. It couldn't have been more different from all the acid house inspired baggy pop of the Mondays, the Farm and even the Stone Roses (which were actually a very slow burn). But it was great then, well received critically and also a huge commercial success. It transformed the Cure into a stadium filling band and gave them a unique position in British music. Remarkably they are still going and are relevant to loads of current bands. Only 18 months ago they were headling the NME Awards and had the Brixton Academy and O2 rocking. They were awesome and worthy of the 'Godlike Genius' status NME awarded them.
If you have the original this is still worth getting. Tracks like Pictures of You, Lullaby and Disintegration would do well if new today and the cohesiveness of the album is remarkable - it's the work of a band at the peak of their creativity. Production values are still very '80s but it is crisper, sharper and still sounds awesome. As the record sleeve said at the time, 'this album has been mixed to play loud, so turn it up'. Good advice from RS. Do it. Cherish this masterpiece - It's a slice of British music history.

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
