this Cure album, to me, is one of the most complete recordings in the entire Cure catalogue. i remember back in '85 when i first heard this album, and it quickly became a classic in my music collection as track #10, Sinking, came to a close.
everything from In Between Days with its undeniable groove to the flamenco sip of The Blood....wow, good stuff.
The Kyoto Song is a slow groove....The Baby Screams is some of the quirky, fun Cure that us Cure fans love so much. A Night Like This, Sinking, Six Different Ways, and Push are simply some of the finest Cure songs ever written....they feel "grand" "deep"...i dunno, there is just something about those tracks that i dig....the words, guitar, keys, and of course, Smith's voice...trust me, this release is about alot more than the hit "Close to Me" (which i skip 8 times out of 10 anyway) Head on the Door is a different side of the Cure, but it is still the Cure, and it is fantastic.
Give me a sign
Waiting for the sun to shine
Pleasure fills up my dreams
And I love it
Like a baby screams
