From glorious glittering beginning to utterly spent finish, Disintegration is a masterpiece and a cleansing medataion. The listener participates in the decorated journey through the landscape of inner sorrows, fears, anger, wonderings, forloren-ness, love and pain, til the darkness enshrowds us in it's soft, dusty comfort and we understand that even after that many tears, that much darkness, we go on, we embrace it and we are comforted. The Cure, indeed. Disintegration is precious and beautiful. The heavy rain, the etherial windchimes, the mournful accordian, the splashing symbals, the rumbling bass, the heartfelt voice of our fellow thoughtful one Mr. Smith, the shades of blue and black, the black lace, the cobwebs, the incence. Poetry in sound (and cover art) that goes straight to the soul and comes out as inspiration.
