Cure (Dlx Ltd Ed) (Dvd) ~ Cure
I am a pretty big fan of the Cure - have been for years. Like some, I have grown apart from Robert in recent years. Highpoints for me have always been pre-Disintegration stuff. While this may be they best thing they've done in a long while, it does have it's flaws. This self-titled release is a very hard record to get through. Its very angry and distorted through most of it, the only lighter track being the radio-single, The End of The World. Now I think that's a very good Cure song, dark yet optomistic, passionate yet playful. The rest of the record is dark, but a bit dingy, not to mention pretty angry.

5.0 out of 5 stars JEEPERS KEEPERS, July 10 2004
One of my favorite debut albums in recent memory. It got me hooked immediately and has yet to let go. Franz Ferdinand has really outdone any of the success they've either achieved or have yet to achieve.
Their debut is filled with sure-fire singles, bouncy post punk and dancefloor friendly rock. It seems everyone and their mother loves Take Me Out, and have no fear, the rest of the album follows that very high cue. Songs like Michael, Tell Her Tonight, Jacqueline or Darts of Pleasure could've easily traded places with the "buzzworthy" Take Me Out. The other tracks on here are hardly filler either. You have some hidden "growers" in the mix like Dark of The Matinee,… Read more
Substance ~ Joy Division
Substance ~ Joy Division
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own., July 2 2004
Joy Division are one of those bands that will always stay with me. Even though I was rather young when they were actually playing together, I discovered them quite early on in my New Order obsession. That helped me to define both bands, their musical catalogs, as well as their place in my cd collection.
I am reviewing (and recommending) this record because if someone out there wants and introduction to Joy Division, they would be hard-pressed to get a better deal than the well-priced Substance LP. Sure, if you've got the dough go ahead and pony up for the beautifully realized box set (designed by Factory Records mainstay, Peter Saville).
Substance has all the singles that any… Read more
