This is the one for me, and is forever tangled up with memories of listening to it in my boyfriend's tiny bedroom, the posters that were on the wall and a slight smell of damp, with the door tightly shut against parental intrusion!I didn't stay with the Cure much beyond this but they were undoubtedly great then and so of that time.
Simultaneously of its time and managing not sound dated at all.
What The Swede said...
I can picture the bedroom C. Agree that Swede nails it.
Bit harsh on The Cure. This, I agree, is a magnificent piece of music but they've also given us some fine indie-pop moments over the years. And in 'Inbetween Days', the finest New Order song that Barney & co never wrote!
I like some of their stuff JC, I just never fell for them the way I did with other bands. A Forest is mesmerising.
I liked most of The Cure's output till after Kiss me... and for reasons I can't fathom, that was it for me.
