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 ...

a must have for any cure fan 18 Sep 1999
By "theexplodingb0y" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
for years i have passed over this disc because it offered no unreleased b-sides. as the years have passed, my rabidity of being a cure fan has grown to such an extreme that i have become a completist and must own everything. passing up this CD all of those times is something i now regret, because to hear the performance of last dance, fascination street, prayers for rain and such a performance of disintegration live could leave a fan speechless. this was one hell of a performance (especially disintegration) and i now envy anyone who was at that concert..highly recommended for any cure fan to not pass up simply because it has no unreleased material.

Ignore the single. Listen to the B-Sides 1 Jun 2006
By egon_beeblebrox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The B-Sides are the only reason I bought this single. They're live renditions of DISINTEGRATION tunes from the '89 Wembley performances, and they're amazing. I really hope Robert finally fulfills his promise of releasing a full show from that era sometime within my lifetime.

The version of "Disintegration" included is the best performance of the song I've ever heard. Starting off with a random guitar riff, and exploding into a quicker, stronger version of the song, it's amazing to listen to with headphones on. "Fascination Street" is always a ROCKING live tune. I'm glad they included "Last Dance" and "Prayers For Rain" as well, since they're not as well-known as other songs from the album.

One word of warning, there's a two second glitch in the middle of "Last Dance." I've looked into it, and it's apparently in quite a few copies of the US Pictures of You single. It's nothing big, and certainly doesn't take away from the killer performances available on the disc.

Trust me, if you want to hear The Cure at the top of their live game, buy this. It's short and sweet.

Great Single with Oustanding Extra Tracks 2 Jun 2003
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Cure were riding a high with the "Disintegration" album in 1989. This single (make that EP) runs 5 tracks, 27 min. and is really great all around.
"Pictures of You", the outstanding track of "Desintegration" shows up here in a slightly different (remixed) version from the album and, more importantly, not the full length version, reason I cannot rate this 5 stars.
The extra tracks, though, are outstanding. They contain live versions of "Last Dance", "Fascination Street" (since then a concert fave), an outstanding "Prayers for Rain", and last but not least an 8 min. live version of the title track of "Disintegration". Just fab.

one word, GOD. 11 Jun 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
if there is a God, it would be this CD. i mean if you listen to this version of Pictures of You with like headphones, you will be moaning the word 'wow'. it's just great, god-like. amazing. The Cure is the best. Robert's voice touches you in this CD, sure, you can find these songs on Disintegration, but this single is the best made.

Enjoy it! 19 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you wanna feel the world-pain of a palefaced man within a forest of his feelings - you have to buy this single. In "PICTURES OF YOU" Robert Smith asks the no-answer-questions that drag you down, meanwhile the drums give you hope and the guitars make you happy.
