Top Customer Reviews
The first song, 'Want' is very consistent and even the title seems to want to carry on with the 'Wish' album's concept. 'Trap' is a great rocker with outstanding guitar and drums work, and trademark desperate lyrics about an almost broken relationship. 'Jupiter Crash' is a very poetic song, 'Mint Car' gets to sound funny and happy, and has a strange magic based in the fact of how strange is hearing The Cure sound so happy.
'the 13th' is not a fav but its really exotic, a strange step into latin by a very European band. 'Drug' sounds exotic also because of the sitar and has the same beautiful sadness of 'To Wish Impossible Things' from the previous album.The rest of the songs is interesting and varied. It is so an interesting album full of different tracks, in which you will find your favourite depending on your own taste.
the only reason this got two stars is because, first of all, the Cure had the balls to actually put this out. Secondly, because I like one of the songs on here. I think it's the first one... but it's not that impressive, really.
Honestly, what this reminded me of was a very, very, very horrible case of schizophrenia. I like weird people, but this was extreme.
Otherwise, this just sucks. I squirmed when I listened to this. And I said, "Why! Oh god, why!?" Yeah... so if you think you may like the cure... but you're not for sure DON'T BUY THIS! go buy Seventeen Seconds, an absolutely genius album. Or disintegration, because everyone will tell you to buy it. Seventeen Seconds is good, too. Wild Mood Swings isn't. eww.
Flash foward seven years, where I had eventully gotten over this record thanks to the brilliance of "Head on the Door", "Disintigration" and "Pornography". I decided what the hell, maybe I was wrong all those years ago. Another friend had this record and played it for me. Nope, I was right. This was crap.
"Wild Mood Swings" is without a doubt the worst Cure record I have heard(I have yet to hear "Wish" or "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me") and is a template for what all bad records aspire to be. When I hear a record that's pretty bad, I comment that "at least its not as bad as 'Wild Mood Swings'".
What you have here is thirteen songs of unbridled crap. It is only consistant in how bad it is. The lyrics, once one of Robert Smith's strong points, are laughably retarded and the music is sub-par "Head on the Door". The Cure trying blending the sadder elements of their token sound along with more of the upbeat stuff, but fail to come up with even one listenable, memorable song. If "Mint Car" or "The 13" are the best songs on your record, then you would best know that it needs to be shelved. Now.
So, in conclusion, avoid "Wild Mood Swings" as you would a large dog carrying rabies. Or Robert "Fat Bob" Smith at a buffet. Unredemmable bad.

None of you have made me very happy. The point is, just because some of the songs aren't to your taste, it doesn't mean it's a bad album. Read morePublished on June 27 2004 by myself

I'm a big Cure fan and I read most of the reviews here and most of them are pretty negative. True, this isn't the Cure's best album but it isn't all that bad. Read morePublished on May 17 2004 by Barbara Streisands Love Slave
