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."

Brilliant record especially if you want to get into The Cure! I am a fan of their darker, gritty and emotional stuff, however, this makes for a easy and uplifting change. All of their big hits on here, including "just like heaven", "pictures of you", "Friday I'm in love" etc...A good Cure album when you need cheering up!!!! :-)

Compilation of The Cure Singles from 1987 to 1997.

Very very good, but personally I prefer their earlier period so would go for Staring At The Sea instead.

However, if you can afford it, buy both, they're great!

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!
