You know what, it's not a bad album at all and "The Drowning Man" is amazing, but, if I were you and if you're a fan, which would in turn make you like me, I'd wait for the digital remaster due out in a few months. Robert Smith, the singer, always said the record company messed up the original mastering of this album on CD to the point he feels the cassette tape sounds better; he hopes to correct that by supervising the remaster. It'll also contain an extra disc of bonus sides.

It's certainly a difficult task to determine my personal favourite out of Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography, as each album has it's own appeal and significance depending on the moment. This, the second installment in the trilogy (what most Cure fans consider the trilogy, anyway), sounds exactly as the cover looks. Grey, hazy, bleak, depressing, reflective, moody..however it is quite a gentle album. Sort of the calm before the storm that is Pornography.
I don't like to do this very often, but perhaps a song-by-song review of this album would help people decide whether it holds anything of interest for them:
The Holy Hour: 8/10 Not a bad introduction, rather minimalist, strong focus on the bass guitar running through a flanger. I like the lyrics.
Primary: 7.5/10 One of the singles, not my favourite but by no means a bad song. It is a little more 'upbeat' than some of the other tracks on this album.
Other Voices: 8.5/10 The other of the singles, and the better one. Slower, more structured, more of a build up of intensity.
All Cats Are Grey: 9/10 This track I enjoy, particularly late at night with the lights out and candles going. It's just so gentle, you can close your eyes and be taken away by the music.
The Funeral Party: 9/10 Much like the previous track. Gorgeous lyrics, minimalist yet so lush.
Doubt: 7/10 ....and just as Robert begins to lull you to sleep, he smacks you in the side of the face with this jagged, crude and jolty little nightmare. By no means a bad song, just seemingly out of place straight after two beautiful, keyboard-driven slow songs.
The Drowning Man: 8/10 Depressing. Those who indulge in their own problems on a regular basis should be advised to skip this track.
Faith 8.5/10: Again, depressing.

if you want to hear a band that hit its prime, check out "Faith"....one of the Cure's deepest and mind bending albums ever recorded. the third track <Other Voices> is amazing...tribal drum beats, a bass line that rumbles through in perfect rhythm, smith holding in with a dreamy strum of his electric, and layers of floating smith vocals that will send shivers down your spine. and that's just one song.
this release has been an all time favorite of mine for almost fifteen years, and i don't think i'll ever tire of it. every song...from the chillingly, eerie pace of <All Cats Are Grey> (a cure classic in every sense) to the all bass guitar driven <Primary>...yes, this album is dark, but it is more peaceful than anything else. i can listen to Faith for hours while i write, chill with friends, or just drift off into a deep sleep.
i can't reccommend this CD enough. it truly is a great collection of cure music. you want driving beats, raw bass lines with a punk feel? you got it. you want twisted, morbidly glowing goth? you got it. there's a wonderful pacing of music flow....and you'll just end up of floating along with it.
All in all, i'd say there is no diehard cure fan on the planet that does not own Faith. if i'm wrong, shame on you. buy it. Faith is part of the Cure's <magic 3>: "Seventeen Seconds", "Faith", and "Pornography". 3 Cure albums...so similar in tone, yet so different in meaning. "Faith", the middle of the three is almost the calm before the storm, which would be "Pornography". i look at it all as a trilogy in the Cure archive.
to listen to Faith is to experience Faith. one of the Cure's finest....

By all accounts, the first 4 Cure albums are essential listening, but 'Faith' is the one album that possesses an integral majesty. This is an album that is at its best played from beginning to end.Outstanding tracks are 'The Drowning Man' (Smith's tribute to Peake's Gormenghast) and 'Faith', seamlessly connected by 4 clicks of the drumsticks...The greatest of the Cure's recordings, beautifully produced and wholly moving.

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 22 2007
Format: Audio CD
This bleak album opens with the meandering dirge The Holy Hour and from there, things just get more depressing. Even the uptempo Primary which was a hit single, is full of angst though not devoid of charm with its chugging rhythms.

The wail of despair resumes in Other Voices, whilst All Cats Are Grey is less claustrophobic with a slow undulating texture creating a more spacious feel. As the title suggests, The Funeral Party is indeed funereal but its saving grace is an awesome melody line. This song would have made Nico of the VU proud.

Doubt is fairly typical Cure faire whilst some impressive guitar work makes The Drowning Man palatable despite the doom and gloom. This seminal Gothic album concludes with the title track, a slow, brooding number with dreamy vocals, a resigned and world-weary end to the relentless misery.
