This album follows 'Wish' in the fact of leaving behind the gloomyness they were into in the marvellous 'Disintegration'. So now they explore many different kinds of musical 'moods' which makes this album unpopular because it's irregular and loose, but in a way it also brings a lot of hidden feelings we couldn't find before in the band. The incredible variety of this album makes me put it in the place of the 'odd' album almost every band has. And although some songs are weak, like 'Club America' and the dreadful last song, the worst I've ever heard from The Cure, there are some gems here.
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.

Wild Mood Swings was the first Cure album I had listened to in my life, not knowing how many albums they did previously, which was quite a lot. When I hear what people have to say about it they say it's crap and it's not mopey and gothic like their old material. Well, hate to break it to you naysayers, but when bands like Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones made it through 3 decades, still going strong, they tweaked their style a little, not losing their unique sound but making it adapt with an ever shifting audience. Nirvana, if still around, would do the same. But bands who don't change will die and all they'll have is two albums to be remembered by. The Cure, led by talented lyricist Robert Smith, have endured and will continue to endure in this fashion. It's not called Wild Mood Swings for nothing. The solid album carries a variety of different tracks with different "moods", from sad(Want, This is a Lie, Numb), to classic infatuation(Strange Attraction, Treasure). Upon listening to their other stuff, this is still one of their best albums. It deserves a full listen.

If Robert Smith were having such wild mood swings, he probably should've taken some estrogen, or something. He's getting older. Menopause isn't such a far away thing for him. If he'd take some vitamins, maybe he wouldn't have had such bad mood swings, and this would've been okay... Haha. Menopause...
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.

Let me take you back, dear friends, to a date in the winter of 1996. I was hanging out with some friends, and one of them asked if I had ever heard the Cure. I replied no and they quickly inserted said record into the C.D. player. For the next forty five minutes or so, a mind numbing pain racked my brain as the awfulness of "Wild Mood Swings" filled the room.
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.
