5.0 out of 5 stars Want to Buy Your First Cure Album? Start Here! 29 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'm often bemused when I hear people say that the first Cure album one should buy is Pornography, Bloodflowers, etc. Let's face it. Unless you heard one of these albums and know that you like it, you're probably familiar with Cure music that you've heard on the radio...and it surely isn't anything on Pornography or Faith (terrific albums, however). The Cure are in some ways like Queen. Terrific British bands that have never really achieved mainstay status in America-yet I often hear people say they can't believe they know and like so many of their songs. You hear them all the time, you just don't realize it's one great band that has made so much fantastic music. Many people will recognize most, if not all, of the first 13 tracks on this great CD. Robert Smith is at his fizzy best when he sings such songs as "Why Can't I Be You?" "Just Like Heaven," and "Friday I'm in Love." "Love Song," "Pictures of You" and "A Letter to Elise" are among the most popular (and easy to listen to) ballads the band has produced. Songs 13 through 17 are from the largely ignored and underrated "Wild Mood Swings Album" (a perennial least favorite among longtime Cure fans), and the 18th track, "Wrong Number," represents the only new release of this album, and it was the least successful Cure single ever-though personally I think its zany guitar distortion and psychedelic lyrics make for a great song. Unless you already know you want to buy another Cure album, this is the perfect first choice, followed by either "Staring at the Sea" (a collection of singles from earlier Cure albums) or one of the albums that is represented on this disc-"Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me," "Disintegration," "Wish," or "Wild Mood Swings."

4.0 out of 5 stars AN INTERESTING REVAMPING OF RELEASED SINGLES! 21 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album comprises all released singles between 1987 and 1997, incorporating such modern day classics as "close to me" and "lullaby". This collection is a perfect example of all the best tracks disected from albums released over a span of ten years. Many of these classics, though, have been remixed specially for this collection, so don't fall into the trap of purchasing the album believing them to be exactly as they were when first released. However, the changes are minimal, with the addition of nuances here and there. So if you would want to hear classic tracks "jazzed up" slightly with the aid of latter day technology, this is the perfect choice for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars quick happiness fix 1 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
for those familiar with cure music and have a taste for it as well as those that are just getting a taste, this is a master cd (though it probably will not replace some of your older albums from the 'boys and dont cry' era). but the compilation is brilliant and has an amasing amount of happy energy that escalates from song to song. cleverly put together, it really has thier best songs which awaken your liking for good lyrics and music... you probably will give up the contemporary pop consumption culture of music for quite a while as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Galore, indeed. 24 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant compilation, bringing together all of The Cure's singles from the period when they were hailed the cream of the alternative crop, even winning a Brit award for best band, over 10 years after their inception.
On Galore, nearly every track is a classic, with the exception of 'Hot, Hot, Hot!!!'..
Buy it.
