The Cure is one of my personal favorite bands of all time. The Cure is one of those rare bands that has managed to sustain a lengthy career in music especially nowadays where you are popular one second and considered a has-been the next second. The band's longevity should be envied by every artist and band, especially for bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit who had their moment in the sun and barely went gold with their latest albums. Robert Smith has one of the most unique vocals I have ever heard. My favorite Cure album? "Disintegration" of course but I realize that not all of The Cure's music is going to sound like 'Disintegration". It had been four years since the band's last album the wonderful "Bloodflowers", a mopey, romantic album. I have to admit I was concerned that Ross Robinson, producer of such horrid rock acts like Korn and Limp Bizkit would ruin the band's sound. Thankfully he did not. The results is interesting. The album lacks the emotional, romantic, whimsical feelings of "Disintegration" and "Bloodflowers". The music is more rocking. "The Cure" almost reminds me of "Pornography" but louder. Still I liked "The Cure" although the album has received mixed reviews. It isn't perfect but it is definitely a joy to listen to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Problem playing in some CD players.... July 17 2004
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
OK so the album is decent. I admit that I haven't listened to it a whole lot though. I own a 2003 Dodge and the CD won't play in my car's CD player. I thought it was a defective disc and got a replacement. Still it wouldn't play. I took the car to the dealer and had them replace the player. It still won't play. I had to make a copy in order to play the copy in my car! It plays fine in all my other CD players though. So if you own a Dodge with a factory CD player the CD might not play....or even eject (longer story). The music is decent though. Favorites are "Before Three", and "alt.end". Don't care too much for the first 2 songs. They are rather dissonant to my ear. "The Promise" reminds me of songs from "Wish" like "Open" and "End". I thought the bonus DVD was totally lame. I was hoping for and interview. And the enhanced CD took me to a website with interviews but my dial up would have taken me forever (I know I am behind the times but so is 85% of the internet using public). Good luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Cure Okay But Not Excellent. July 21 2004
By bam
Format:Audio CD
Hey, i'm 14 years old and i am a big fan of the cure and robert smith. this cd i think was worth the money and i cant wait to see them in concert. i will agree that bloodflowers was great, this new self titled cd is good but sort of bad quality. the lyrics are mushy and the songs are sort of blown out of porportion. this cd is good but it could be way way better. anyway this cd was pretty good and i would reccomend it to the fans and people who have never heard of the cure. ( the best song on the cd: end of the world.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Smith give me my money back! July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Cure should have ended their career after Bloodflowers as they said they will. I think it was a great album but this new CD is just horrible. It's annoying, repetitive and boring for most of the time - I just cant believe how could they release such a bad record. I'm the Cure fan but I'm so disappointed and mad at Smith for stealing my $15.00.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking July 18 2004
By SKOLVK
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I'm gradeing this in comparison to other Cure albums. With that said, I would have to put this towards the bottom of the Cure's large listing of works. I had high hopes for this album surpassing The Cure's last masterful album "Bloodflowers" but "The Cure" sadly, falls short.The first three tracks failed to get me engrossed. They seemed to be flat and hollow, a characteristic I've rarely seen from The Cure. The album turns around with "End of the world" and "anniversary" but quickly desends again only to be topped off with the best song of the album, "Promise". If you're expecting an ablum like "Pornograpy" or "Wish" then this my not be your cup of tea.

The Cure's new self-titled album puts a strong focus on Robert Smith's vocals. Almost all of the hooks on the album, and there are many, come from the rhythmic arrangement of Smith's words. The flow of the lyrics is instantly catchy, and there are almost no completely instrumental parts to distract from it. The music takes on a supporting role, providing the rhythmic backdrop for Smith's singing. It's also used to create dramatic effect, like the steely guitar build-up on "Lost." The keyboards almost never rise to the surface, but Simon Gallup's powerful bass sound is given prominence on several tracks. The overall sound is much murkier and muddier; just listen to the ending of "Lost," and you'll see just how aggressively distorted the guitars are. There are no long, stately songs with strings and pianos; the tempo is high throughout, and with only two exceptions, all the songs on the album run for less than five minutes. In fact, the music sounds remarkably unlike the Cure; it's not the brooding, sparsely-produced sound of their early days, and it's certainly not the clean melodious sound of The Head on the Door or Disintegration. This album might be compared to the more guitar-heavy moments of their 1992 album Wish (the squalling guitars on "The Promise" are especially similar to the solos on "Cut"), but even that doesn't quite summarize it. "Before Three" sounds a little like Catherine Wheel circa 1993, actually.
As for Robert Smith's vocals, they've regained a vigour that they haven't had for a long time. Like the music, they're more aggressive than ever before - not bludgeoning, not unlistenable, but forceful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Disintegration? What has come close since...
First, let me acknowledge that I am a diehard fan of the Cure. By die-hard, I mean that I am well-aware that most of their pivotal work was achieved before Disintegration. Read more

Robert Smith and his band of un-merry men are in top form on their eponymous twelfth CD. A batch of good, concise songs help. Read more

I think this stands alongside their best (and I have them all). I like the sound and the blend of despair and confused romanticism. Read more
