Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as the Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith (born April 21, 1959), the band became notorious for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cure's Finest Production 15 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt The Cure's finest production. A live perfomance on VHS also which captures perfectly the essence of the brilliant "Cure".

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Cure performance on screen. VCD format sux 16 Jun 2004
By Herbert West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this performance, as they play all their best old songs over the course of almost two hours! I had the tape for years but wanted something more permanent, so I got the VCD which, as advertised, is supposed to play on dvd players. Wrong! It doesnt play on new or old ones. I can only watch it on my computer with a movie player program. Thats fine, but now I have to park my ass in front of the computer instead of relaxing in front of my Tele. For that reason alone I give the VCD only 4 stars. The Cure's performance in Orange to this day is simply, Amazing, Haunting, and Stellar. Forever immortalized on screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars VCD = bad 22 Jan 2005
By lostflower4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off, I'm giving this 5 stars because this concert is superb if purchased in the correct format.

But the point of my review is to comment on the Video CD (VCD) version. When I first heard of this, I (foolishly) got excited about this because it boasted digital sound and picture. Well, this is meaningless considering the format only allows 1.3 gigs to work with in a double CD format, whereas DVD's give at least 4.7 gigs to work with.

The video is so compressed that it is not clear at all - very grainy. And the sound, what a joke! First, it is terribly thinned out. The bass and drums are almost non-existent. The percussion triggers are not there, and the effects on Robert's voice are also completely gone. Possibly worst of all, the sound is sped up a bit, and this just makes it sound extra terrible. Whoever produced this release must have been a complete nitwit. I'm convinced The Cure didn't have any oversight of this horrendous release at all.

On the other hand, the Galore VCD is better. The picture is still a bit lacking, but the sound is at least "correct." The mix and speed is right; it just sounds a little thin. Anyway, my final point is don't let the word "digital" fool you. A VHS tape beats any VCD hands down any day.

If you're still not satisfied with VHS, there is a laserdisc of In Orange, but it is not without its own flaws. Although the picture quality is great, the drums are a bit distorted when compared to the VHS, and the audio/video sync is quite off in parts. In this case, it really seems that VHS is the way to go.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic live cure...and a crewcut 27 Nov 2003
By Herve Boisde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've only seen the original '80's video release of this live "film" directed by perenial Cure video director, Tim Pope. The setting is dramatic, shot in an ancient Roman amphitheatre in the town of Orange, France. Hence the title. When the band make their entrance a trippy soundtrack is playing and leader Robert Smith shuffles onto the stage with his trademark manic hair still intact. Seconds later he is seen throwing a wig into the audience and reveals a surprising crewcut.
The songs are all vintage early and middle years Cure, the opener, "Shake Dog Shake" howls and rocks with sleazy urgency. The live sound is big and anthemic, recalling Pink Floyd drama and spectacle. It's a rare live document of the band in their prime and when "A Forest" winds down after an extended and inspired hypnotic jam, it shows that the Cure were a trully capable live group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historic Document 10 Jan 2005
By Jorge E. Trujillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This video is a good reminder that good music can beat time. The quality of this video could be better because it's in stereo and not in 5.1. The video could be better because it looks like it's been copied many times. However, the music and The Cure performance are high quality. I wonder when was the last time Robert Smith saw this video. He should be proud of himself. The bandmembers that played in this video, participated in Kiss me Kiss me Kiss me. Killing an Arab is included in this video. I'd get this video if I was becoming a The Cure fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must own for cure fans 9 July 2004
By Kevin Mc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've had this on vhs for over 10 years. If you are a cure fan and dont own this you should be ashamed of yourself. The music is outstanding. However I noticed in the listing that killing a arab isnt on it. Hope the track listing is wrong. I cant recomend this video enough for any fan of the cure.
