So. I've never really heard much from them. One of those bands that over the years I've always sort of felt like, "hey, maybe I should check some stuff out..." but then got distracted by something shiny and forgot about it. Well. My boyfriend bought tickets for us to see them (for June 2008, mind you), so I feel like the time has come that I should listen to them. Share some recommendations on cds/songs/etc. Links for me to download from would be much appreciated also.

Pornography is godhead. I'd upload it for you, but I doubt I'd beat 1565 to it.

Disintegration makes me disintegrate into a pitiful mass of mushy lameness.

good times!

Actually, i lost my copy of Pornography in the Great MP3 Loss of 2006. I got back most of my Cure stuff from backups but not all of it. My CD is at my mom's somewhere so there's no hope. If you could put it up, that'd be SWEET.

I'll do it. I have fond memories of you talking about how much "The Hanging Garden" rules.

I tried but could never really get into them. The songs are long and depressing and it's just not my thing at all. I do however love the songs that aren't typical them, "Friday I'm in love" "Love Cats" being some of my favorite songs by them and songs that I would like to hear more often.

So you might want to try listening to Wish. I think I could upload it eventually for you.

I liked them. I say liked because I got into them through my ex-girlfriend. I listened to some of thier stuff and it was pretty cool. But then we broke up, I doubt I will ever purposfully listen to "Just Like Heaven" again.

Pretty cool band though.

This is the newest thread on The Cure I could find so bumping it.

I randomly got to listening to Disintegration, the only album I had by them and discovered I was more into it than ever, pretty much. Such a stunning, beautiful album.

(Actually it went like this; was over at a friend's house, she was playing songs off an usb stick through her DVD player and one of the songs was Same Deep Water As You and I was like "Man I love this song, I didn't know you liked The Cure" and she was like "..you sent me this song in like 2005." )

So I looked around for people's thoughts on what their best albums were and ended up buying Faith and Pornography. I adore both like crazy, really great records, but I might adore Faith just a little bit more.

I can't really get into, at the risk of sounding like a teenaged narrow-minded punkrock fan, their "poppy stuff". I think I used to have Lovecats and Why Can't I Be You as mp3's at some point but I'm really trying to steer clear of buying their more upbeat albums in the future. It's all about the dark, slow, 6-minute songs.

I'm sort of trying to figure out what the "cut-out" year that separates lamer modern Cure albums from the classic older Cure albums. Should I just buy all the 80's albums?

So you actually prefer the newer stuff? Huh..

Talking about The Cure...

I grew up listening to that band and I've always loved them. Unfortunately, I've never seen them alive and I don't know all of their songs, but what I know I love...

I'm going to start keeping an eye out for the 80's records. Even though I've spent more money on CD's these past months than I really should've.
