bones of the body

The Cure's first album proves what can be accomplished when you take stripped down elements and assemble them with style. The Cure's body of work is most celebrated for lush production and epic constructions; here are the bones of that body. Consider the opener "10:15 Saturday Night," with its clean, skeletal sound and anatomical structure; there is as much "there" there as in any multi-tracked operatic tune, it's just that it lacks fleshiness.

When you consider where that progression led them over the years--especially to the magnum opus DISINTEGRATION--then the Cure's early genius in the spare, playful, experimental, and brilliant THREE IMAGINARY BOYS becomes especially obvious. --Joshua Hendrickson
