Another brilliant set of obsessive musings pried from Robert Smith's fuzzy navel. Epic elegies ("From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea") and tuneful romps ("Friday I'm In Love") are classic Cure cuts--Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark meets Pop June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think this is the CD where the band reaches the pop frontier.
Songs are great from the first to last one. Here they show that they can make really up and happy songs as they can go down the hill with ultra dark and heavy tunes like Apart or End. It's really weird if you realise that tracks like "End" and "Friday i'm in love" are part of the same disc. This was the cd that really made me like Cure, because I wasn't used to their prior works. After this I started liking all of them, but this one is special for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars I WISH all music could be like this April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
The only reason this CD gets 4 stars and not 5 is b/c of the exclusion of This Twilight Garden. I'm a believer that all Cure albums are good/great in some way, and Wish is great. From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea will knock you on your a*s every time you hear it, it's that good. Open, Apart, End, Cut (yea!), and To Wish the Impossible Things are all classic Cure tracks. This is the best "starter" CD for new Cure fans - not as depressing as Disintegration, and not as frightening as [adult relations]. If you don't this, what are you thinking?

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST OF BOB March 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
ALTHOUGH I KNOW THAT MOST CURE FANS WILL DISAGREE, "WISH" IS PROBABLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE CURE CDs. OK, SO "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" IS A LITTLE TOO COMMERCIAL FOR MY TASTE; IT IS FUNNY! AND I, FOR ONE, CAN USE THE COMIC RELIEF WITHIN THIS STRANGE AND DARK JOURNEY THROUGH ROBERT SMITH'S MANIC-DEPRESSIVE MIND.
THIS IS MOSTLY A VERY DARK CD (BUT AREN'T THEY ALL, REALLY?)--LONLINESS, LOSS, DESPAIR, "FORCED" DRUNKENNESS, HATRED.... SMITH EXPRESSES DESPAIR AT WHAT HIS LIFE (AS AN MUSICICAN/POET) HAS BECOME, REMORISE AT HOW HE MUST BEHAVE IN ORDER TO MAKE OTHERS HAPPY (LOVERS, MANAGERS, FANS, ETC.).
BUT MY FAVORITE SONG ON THE ALBUM IS "LETTER TO ELISE." IT IS SO SAD, SWEET AND DELICATE, LIKE A VICTORIAN-ROMANTIC POEM OF LOST/UNREQUITED LOVE. IN FACT, IT REMINDS ME, UNCANNILY, OF MY FAVORITE POET, CHARLES ALGERNON SWINBURNE'S POEM "FELISE?" COINCIDENCE? I DON'T THINK SO...EITHER WAY, "LETTER TO ELISE" IS BITTER-SWEET, TEAR-INSPIRING, SADLY PERMENANT....
I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED ROBERT SMITH TO BE A MUSICAL AND POETIC GENIUS, AND THIS ALBUM PROVES IT, ONE MORE TIME, AS SURELY AS "DISINTEGRATION" AND "FAITH."

5.0 out of 5 stars The last, good Cure album Dec 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe it's been 10+ years since this album was released. I first purchased it on cassette in 1992 and later on CD when the cassette literally wore itself out. To me "Wish" is the last, really good album by this group, with later efforts like "Wild Mood Swings" badly missing the mark. Often mis-classified as a Goth band, I rather think Robert Smith and The Cure simply tap into the quiet veins of sorrow and tragedy that run through every human life. It's not a bad thing, it's not a Goth thing, it just is. And while "Wish" is punctuated with occasional uppy songs like "Friday I'm in Love", the pieces that really soar are (of course) the sad ones: "Apart", "Letter to Elise" and the epic "To Wish Impossible Things". I once told someone that The Cure is the greatest break-up band of all time, and I stand by that assertion. "Wish" is a grand demonstration of everything that makes The Cure great, right before things started to go downhill. I've since heard rumors that The Cure are no more, that "Bloodflowers" is their last hurrah. If so, I choose to remember "Wish" as their last, best effort.
