iTunes Review

Over the years the Cure touched on many different styles. They’d started as a punk-pop group that receded into ethereal despair that then mutated into raging goth and suddenly discovered uplifting dancefloor-friendly pop and ‘80s-90s psychedelic shimmers. But Cure critics and fans always favored a delicate blend of singer Robert Smith’s pop instincts and his grandiose epic visions. Smith knew this and posited 2000’s Bloodflowers as the final part of a trilogy that included 1982’s Pornography and 1988’s Disintegration. Again, he would indulge in songs that took five-plus minutes to sufficiently unfold and that dwelled in the group’s slower, hypnotic range. He succeeded, since “Out of This World,” the 11-minute “Watching Me Fall,” and “The Last Day of Summer” work over their guitar and keyboard riffs with a death grip’s finality. These are not songs meant to be taken lightly and their intense emotionalism against the Cure’s unyielding wall of sound — sometimes psychedelic, always brooding — makes for solid Goth throughout.

Customer Reviews

the Cure's best

.... oh I need to say a bit more ... Look this album probably isn't going to convert you if you aren't a fan. It's not immediate by any means - it takes a few listens to fall in love with it. It's passionate, romantic, blessed, dreamy - a work of art... Those that love it will know what I mean.

Like fine wine....

Like fine wine the Crue gets better wit time. This is part 3 of the great Crue CD. Down lod this one just to get "Watching me Fall". Like All the best Cure it is full for dark palse that only Mr. Smith can see. This is what age can do for you a an artest, make you grow!

It takes a while....

So this album is now almost a decade old. I remember the first time I heard it, I was positive it was all over for this once great band. I heard it once, put it away and didnt listen to it again till 5 years later. Now I kick myself for not paying more attention. This is a wonderful album. As it's been said before, part of a triology with Pornography and Disintegration. Do yourself a favor and get this album, especially if you gave up on the Cure a long time ago. Listen to it, constantly... your patience will be rewarded.

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...
