Biography

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 ...

By Adamski VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I'm so glad they've finally put 'Hey You' back on the tracklist. This was inexplicably missing on the original cd but present on the vinyl and cassette versions of the album. This for me was the last, great Cure work of art and for me it's right up there with Faith and Pornography as my 3 favourite Cure albums. The opening track is just phenomenal. A really long doom-laden guitar melody introduces Robert's most venomous vocals and lyrics to date. I absolutely love it, easily one of the best Cure tracks ever! This album is around 50% dark doomy Cure and the other half is more poppy but don't let that put you off because I think this album appeals more to the older 'true' Cure fans than those who like the newer poppier stuff post-Wish. Essential Cure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gothic Masterpiece 22 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
It can be hard to tell what the main theme is to this album. Love or death. On a lighter note, Robert Smith provides us with some superb, pop rock songs like "Just Like Heaven" and provides us with catchy dance beats to songs like "Hot Hot Hot!!!" displaying muscial genius along the way. On a darker side, Smith portrays the darker side of love with epic and truelly gothic tracks like "the kiss" and "the snakepit". The album plays out like a balanced argument displaying the joy and happiness of love and the pain and torture of rejection when i can not be found. This album is fantastic to buy because it suits two main moods; happiness and depresion. The only downside to the album is perhaps the quality of Robert Smith's vocals on certain songs where he is clearly lacking the quality heard in 1985's "The Head On The Door". Nevertheless, this album is perfect for anyone into pop/alternative rock or someone who wants to see what The Cure have to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like audio heaven! 15 Aug 2006
By R. John
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
By 1987 The Cure were in their stride, combining mainstream success with critic success, thanks mainly to the 36 minute "Head on The Door" album.

"Kiss Me (x3)", an 18 song extravaganza (well over an hour in length) is an amazing collection of dark and dour, but with those killer Cure hooks.

The singles were firm and bubbly ("Just Like Heaven" may just be the greatest Cure single of all time), but digging futher tracks like "Torture" and "One More Time" are just so excellent it makes the hairs on your body stand up.

The second disc is full of the compulsory demos and "live bootleg" tracks cuz most of the other material has found it's way out on various boxsets over the years. It's still amazing to hear the germination of the final product though.

This album is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you telling me you don't already own this ? 2 July 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album caused quite a stir within the music media when it was released (1987). Just two years earlier The Cure had finally broken through as a major commercial act, following six years of trying their best not to, and the prospect of a double album (as was the form it's original vinyl release took) from these unexpected megastars got more than a few people quite excited.
All their expectations were fulfilled, the album containing 4 bona fide hit singles and 13 other classics, many of which could have been suitable choices for singles.
The album kicks off with The Kiss, a heavy wah-wah driven track - the full 6:17 of wild guitar (with few repeating phrases) being performed in one take by vocalist Robert Smith rather than guitarist Porl Thompson, which surprised many given Porl's reputation as the "solo" guitarist out of what was a 2-guitar line up (Smith and Thompson). After this, we move into Catch, a mediterranean style piece of pop which is acknowledged by most Cure fans as being one of their greatest singles.
The opening two tracks set the pace for the rest of the album really. The 17 songs pretty much go from rock/sort-of psychedelic to pop back to rock/sort-of psychedelic back to pop, and so on throughout the album.
This is a concept that the band employed years later for Wild Mood Swings (1996), however on that particular album it doesn't really work simply because most of the songs just aren't strong enough to carry it off.
On Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me it works brilliantly though.
Like I said, most of the songs could have been singles, and of the songs that couldn't (i.e. the rockier or sort-of psychedelic stuff) are all absolute classics as well, so there aren't any problems with mixing and matching styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars From gloom to bliss to gloom again 9 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
This cure album is probably the best, at showing that the cure can write songs that range from the warmth and happiness of "just like heaven, to the darkness and despair of "All I Want". This proves that the Cure, unlike what most square headed "goths" think of them, offer a large pallete of sounds and feelings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cure's double-album from 1987. 7 Feb 2003
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have a thing about double-albums, perhaps it's the fact they're good value (not necessarily good) or the band gets to cut loose in an experimental fashion. 1987 was a bumper year for double-albums- Kiss Me... sat well next to Prince's Sign'O'The Times & Husker Du's Warehouse (Songs & Stories). Recorded in France, this was the most 'band'-created Cure album- various members co-writing the music. It takes in most sounds of The Cure- most notably the deranged pop they had been making since 1982's Let's Go to Bed & the bleak-guitar heavy work of Pornography.
The Kiss is a brilliant opening track, a guitar overload that advances on earlier tracks like Shake Dog Shake & The Figurhead- other tracks are similar to this: the claustrophobic Snakepit (a more abstract Pornography) & the anti-Tolhurst diatribe of Shiver & Shake- a more tuneful take on 1984's Give Me It.
There are wild experiments, with a hint of world music on such songs as If Only Tonight We Could Sleep & Like Cockatoos; though much is the classic alternative sound- songs like Torture, All I Want (A Night Like This II?)& Fight cut from the same cloth as Psychedlic Furs' Midnight to Midnight album. But it's the pop songs that really stand out- Catch is one of Smith's most gorgeous moments, as songs like How Beautiful You Are, Just Like Heaven (In Between Days II, covered by Dinosaur Jr), The Perfect Girl & A 1000 Hours are wonderful.
There are a few duds- Hey You is dropped from this edition (fine- it's a screaming b-side & not as good as other b's of this era- such as A Japanese Dream (played on The Kissing Tour) & Snow in Summer). Why Can't I Be You? is a rewrite of The Lovecats which sounds really cheesy away from the hilarious 5 Star pastiche video, Icing Sugar is another dud- just a bit of a non-event.
