iTunes Editors’ Notes

By 1987 the Cure were among the most successful “alternative” rock bands in the world. Their previous album, 1985’s The Head on the Door, had been a massive hit and expectations were high. After years of single-minded leadership, Robert Smith was opening the band up to be more of a democracy and the additional input of his fellow bandmates led to such an overabundance of material that the group determined Kiss Me would need to be a double album. From the long instrumental passages that add to the album’s intense, epic mood to the ornate, ‘80s psychedelic flourishes that color the tracks, Kiss Me is a headphone listener’s dream. “Why Can’t I Be You?” and “Just Like Heaven” are the obvious radio-friendly pop songs, while “The Kiss,” “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep,” “How Beautiful You Are…” and “The Perfect Girl” reflect the heavy romance that replaced the group’s earlier unnerving despair. Emotions continue to dominate with overstated urgency, but it’s with a bit more sense of play. The expanded edition includes instrumental demos and rough mixes that are of limited interest, but the six live tracks that complete the collection are strong enough for even less than obsessed listeners to enjoy.

Customer Reviews

Take me back...

Take me back to freshman year at UCSB 1989 (although it was originally released in 1987 and I first heard the original release in the 12th grade)!!! These songs reminded me of how dull and drab high school was. This album helped get hooked on Cure and Robert Smith's acerbic and pensive songwriting. It's releases such as these that should have long solidified this band's place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; although, I kind of admire what the Sex Pistols did this past year by snubbing the elitism of this annual event. With the bonus tracks, you will figure out why the are indeed "Hall of Famers" on anyone's list.

If you don't want the demos, wait a bit for the single disc version!

Again, ignore the gripes about the missing b-sides and remixes. The former can be found on the "Join the Dots" boxset, the latter on the "Mixed Up" lp.

I HEART THE CURE!!!

the Cure- one of the greatest 80's bands out there. from Just Like Heaven, to Friday I'm In Love, this unbeleivably depressed guy can write some pretty good love-songs Ama-za-zing. a shout-out to Jen- thanks for introducing me to this amazing band!!!

Biography

Formed: 1976 in Crawley, England

Genre: Alternative

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...
