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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotoc, flowing music 19 Mar 2005
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Unlike most Cure fans, I heard these extended versions before the originals. The Cure's music has here been adapted for the dancefloor without sacrificing its rock appeal in the process. The music is spacious, atmospheric and emotionally compelling, far more than just a dance rhythm added to the mix. In fact, when I compare these magnificent versions of Pictures Of You, Inbetween Days and Close To Me to the originals, they sound almost flat and one-dimensional. I am sure most Cure fans would disagree, but for me these extended mixes have an added charm and flow. The dance rhythms provide a hypnotic twist and do not in any way detract from the profundity of The Cure's music. Mixed Up is definitely my favourite Cure album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings !!!! 2 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
5 of the songs (which is almost HALF of the album kids!) have the subtitle of "Extended Mix" in brackets next to the songs title: Lullaby, Fascination Street, Lovesong, Pictures Of You (which fair enough is a dub version) and Hot Hot Hot. All of these, excepting Pictures Of You, do exactly what it says on the tin - they are just extended versions of the songs.
This sort of works with Lullaby (or you could always listen to the original and press the repeat button...), doesn't work at all for Lovesong (it's too "straight" a song to warrant long instrumental passages and simply has no excitement in this format), and Hot Hot Hot is also a bit lifeless unless you really do want to hear individual guitar lines playing for a minute at a time.
Pictures Of You is an interesting one as it's a full on Jamaican-dub version, while maintaining the guitars of the original. It's interesting because it's different, but ultimately a bit daft if you think about it for too long !!
Fascination Street is the one extended version that really works well. This is a testament really to how good the original version is. The original is so good that's it's always a shame when it ends, so what better a thing to do than have a really long version of it ! The majority of Cure fans (myself included) look on this extended mix to be superior and now consider it to be the definitive version, much the same as how many Star Wars fans think the Special Editions are better than the originals (I don't !).
OK then, now for the REAL remixes:
Close To Me was once a fast paced almost dance track, now it's a lazy, spaced out under a tree, mellow groove. This comes courtesy of Happy Monday's producer Paul Oakenfold and retains the feel of said band, very much in the style of Step On.

4.0 out of 5 stars From the point of view of a casual Cure fan... 6 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
I love this remix album. I had it on tape back in 1990/91 and pretty much wore it out. I bought it at the time for the Paul Oakenfold mix of Close To Me and because I liked the tracks "Lullaby" and "Lovesong". I've grown to love the other mixes too - particularly "The Walk". Sadly though, "Why Can't I Be You" is missing from the CD version. A crying shame.

Format:Audio CD
If you like The Cure this is a great edition to your collection especially if your a fan of remixes of your favourite songs. Not all the remixes are of the same quality though but I guess it's all down to personal taste in the end.
