Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released in 1987, at the height of the compact-disc revolution, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me is the prototypical CD album. Cure architect Robert Smith knew that the newly popular format could handle almost twice as much music as records, and he wasn't about to waste the space. Unfortunately, many of Kiss Me's 17 tracks sound more like B-sides. The cream is certainly worth culling, however; "Catch," "How Beautiful You Are," and the alternative-rock staple "Just Like Heaven" are among the Cure's finest moments. "Hot Hot Hot!!!" and "Why Can't I Be You?" reveal that underneath all the dyed-black hair and glum stares lay a fervent dance band. Who knew? --Bill Crandall

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic. April 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Alrighty, first off, you should probably know that I'm a die- hard Cure fan, so I may very well be a lil' biased. I love all Cure albums equally, but this is the one I listen to most often because it's without a doubt the most versatile of all Cure albums. It's got something for everybody, as any Cure fan will tell you. The whole emotional spectrum is represented here, from extreme to extreme and everywhere in between. Bonus? This album is kinky as all get out. You'll want to act out each and every one of these songs in the bedroom. It's turned an alarming number of my "normal", non-Cure fan friends into insatiable Robert Smith fetishists. They've started demanding their ordinary jock boyfriends tease up their hair and wear eyeliner and smeared red lipstick. It's utterly magnificent.
...That's really all I have to say. I've started thinking about Robert Smith singing "All I Want" and now I'm a wee bit too distracted to go on with the review...sigh...I'll leave you with that. Buy every Cure album ever released today. Then play them to death. Then buy the re-releases of all the Cure albums (complete with rarities) when they come out and you'll be able to fully appreciate them. That's all I got. Peace, Love and Robert Smith, y'all. Meow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blast!!! March 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
How ironic and funny that this group, most known for their own distinctive brand of depression rock, has made some of the most joyous, exuberant, overtly happy music I've ever heard (in particular, "Why Can't I B You?"). On this album, Robert Smith offers his heart on a platter even if it is typically tinged with melancholy.
KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME is so fun to explore and really highlights the Cure's eclecticism and wide range of talents. There are so many standout songs for me, but my favorite would have to be "Like Cockatoos" with a tricky, spiraling and masterful vocal from Smith and the bizarre sound of psychedelic birds in flight.
Also, if pressed, I would have taken off "Shiver and Shake" which is energetic, frazzled, nasty and angry but a bit of a throwaway while "Hey You!!!," also a bit of a tossed-off tune, finds the Cure in full party mode which is a key aspect of this album. ("Hey You!!!" was removed so this double album could fit on one disc.)
Note: as brilliant as the Cure is, the biggest complaint I hear about them from my non-fan friends is Smith's vocals which are admittedly rather thin and crackly. However, if you can get past that, he is a very emotive vocalist and an excellent vocal stylist who can truly do some amazing things with his pipes. I really love his voice, faults and all!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Album That Defines The Band Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that no Cure fan can possibly be without. I was first exposed to The Cure through 'Head on the Door' and was worried this next release would be commercial, no chance of that!
From the opening track 'Kiss', which builds and savages for at least 4-5 minutes before Robert Smith even opens his mouth, to the lush and haunting 'If Only Tonight We Could Sleep' and the Cure's flip-side pop personality of 'Catch' and 'Just Like Heaven' this album runs the full gamutt of The Cure's musical genius.
Many tracks are challenging, but this is an album that continues to grow on you, even years after you've bought it.
Henry Rollins has been known to say that 'Why Can't I Be You' is his favourite pop song, all happy melody and beat, with quite frightening lyrics.
Other standout tracks are 'Like Cockatoos', 'Torture', 'Icing Sugar' and the infectious 'Hot Hot Hot!!!'.
Few double albums sustain the energy and interest over the course of the whole work. 'Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me' (2 vinyls, one very long CD) is the yardstick by which all such efforts should be measured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look deeper Feb. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who dismisses this album as pure pop isn't actually listening.
The album opens with "The Kiss", which after a somewhat lengthy musical intro features lyrics like "Get your [expletive] voice out of my head... I wish you were dead." Which reminds me a lot more of Cure songs like "Give Me It" than their pop numbers.
Next comes "Catch". It certainly sounds like a pop song, but as far as I can tell it's about a wistfully remembered epileptic.
Then "Torture". "My body is cut and broken/It's shattered and sore/My body is cut wide open/I can't stand anymore."
Then "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep", one of my favorite songs on the album. "If only tonight we could fall/In a deathless spell... If only tonight we could slide/Into deep black water". Maybe not gloomy, but certainly goth.
"Why Can't I Be You?" OK, pure, wonderful, whimsical pop.
"How Beautiful You Are". Probably my favorite. Again, pop presentation, but no more a love song than REM's "The One I Love". Listen to the lyrics.
"Snake Pit". "And my eyes feel like they're bursting/And they're splitting like plums/And I'm writhing... in the snake pit".
"Just Like Heaven". OK, pop. But "Alone above a raging sea/That stole the only girl I loved/And drowned her deep inside of me."
"All I Want". More pop than not.
"Hot Hot Hot!!!" Awesome pop.
"One More Time". Pop.
"Like Cockatoos", "Icing Sugar". Can't hear them in my head right now.
"The Perfect Girl". Pop.
"A Thousand Hours". More pop than not. But "For how much longer can I howl into this wind?
