Any fans here? I only own the albums that were released between 1987 and 2000, but I've heard mostly the other albums too. But it's kind of sad that they don't make much music as they used to do. It seems like they take four years to release a record.

Discuss.

Burn is my favorite
I like to hug dogs

im a fan and has been for quite some years now. they are not allways good but bloodflowers was quite a worthy finish for them i think. the best are pornography, the head on the door, kiss me and maybe faith.

My favorites are that epic triptych of Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers. I love the rest, too. But those appeal to the depressed, angst filled romantic in me more than anything else.

Listening to certain records at certain times in your life endears them to you in a certain way. My CD towers are stacks and stacks of memories; The Cure fills up a lot of the bittersweet ones.

Quote from: Ghostboy
Disintegration

shit, i cant believe i forgot to mention disintegration, it's by far my favorite. second thoughts about kiss me, kiss me, kiss me is that it shouldnt be mentioned among my faves, the overall quality is just not that good. but the song just like heaven stands out as one of their best ever i think.

My favorite Cure album:

“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

i actually really like the acoustic disc on the greatest hits. Alot of the songs sound better acoustic. Maybe it's just me

I LOVED The Cure as a teen. I'm not nearly so devoted now, but I still have major soft spots for:

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Strange, I was going to start a thread about them !

Love Disentegration, Boys don't Cry (Killin' an Arab is about The Stranger, so that's nice), and pretty much everything else.

Love their style, too

the sad thing about the cure is their image over shadoed the fact that they wrote such fucking great songs, with super melodys

people who dont know the band that much think all their songs sound like " love song" all sad and depressed and gloomy

but no way their melodys were so fucking catchy they were bubblegum at its best

i just put on the walk album, love their early days
