Just wondering if there are many other Cure fans in this forum?

They've put out some great stuff over the years, my personal favourites are; Pornography (dark and disturbed), Kiss Me x3 (groovy and weird), The Cure (new one) and The Top (the acid freakout). I've never known a band so able to consistently re-invent themselves as these guys...

What other albums do you guys like and why? Favourite songs? Lineups?

I'm a total Cure freak... I have all the albums and a, kind of excited about all the upcoming re-releases with all the bonus stuff (demos and unreleased stuff recorded at the same time as the albums).

Seen 'em live twice (Smith hates flying so they don't come to Australia very often) and will see them again every opportunity I get.

The Trilogy DVD that came out a little while back is -awesome- I think the live performance of Pornography is one of the best I've ever heard! It's kind of a shame they lost Porl Thompson thought, that guy pwned on guitar.

i just got the three imaginary boys deluxe release. there's a lot of great songs on the bonus disc like i want to be old, winter, faded smiles, play with me and i just need myself that i'd never heard of before and weren't on the join the dots boxset (killing an arab is missing though for no apparent reason :ol_angry: )

I think like Pornography a lot, i think Disintegration is overrated but like it and think The Cure is a good album also. Their greatest hits is the best compilation of it's kind also.

Yeah, the new album is great, and like most albums that end up on my all-time favourites list, it takes a few spins to really get into it.

The first time i heard DITC I just didn't get it, same with Kid A, and the same with the new Cure... some things just take a while to sink in I guess.

I think they're pretty boring, sans their earlier works.

I had the pleasure of seeing them last August, and it was the best concert I ever went to (and I've seen Volta twice).

My favorite albums are, in order: Disintegration, Seventeen Seconds, Bloodflowers, Pornography, Faith.
