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 ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The Cure is bombarding us with disposable product: There's Show, the soundtrack from the film of its Detroit stop on the 1992 Wish tour; Side Show, an EP of five live tunes not included on Show, and Paris, a different live set recorded in Europe. Considering that much of its reputation rests on Tim Pope's visionary videos, Show (the movie) is a dreadful bore, concentrating exclusively on the band performing, much like Pink Floyd's Live At Pompeii. The soundtrack is just as tedious, skimping on the catchy hits ("Friday I'm in Love" is here, but not "The Love Cats") and dwelling on droning mood pieces such as "From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea". Show is for the devoted only, while the other discs are for those devotees who actually go out in public dressed like Fat Bob. --Jim DeRogatis

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon review is hopelessly misguided 25 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an album for the fans, clearly. And anyone who expects them to play an 18yr old cheesy hit like lovecats clearly doesn't know the first thing about them. this album captures them at their best period, with their best line-up, and with the exception of a few dodgy tracks (high and friday i'm in love being a bit meagre live), it's a riveting experience for those that know and like the songs. those that don't can find the ricky martin album in the next aisle... :P

Probably one of my favourite Cure albums, it has some of their best music within an amazing atmosphere that lets you relive past Cure concerts, as if you were there again. My favourites have to be Lullaby, Fascination Street & Just like Heaven. I also have the Video-CD of this compilation, which, actually has another FOUR tracks, including one of my all-time-favourites, Forest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time - a great showcase 17 Nov 2002
By Phil
Format:Audio CD
If you've been to a Cure concert, you will know that they are a stunning live band. Capturing the atmosphere and the adrenalin of their shows on CD is well-nigh impossible, but nonetheless "Show" is an appealing reminder to those who have been there, and a damn good taster for those who haven't. Many of the songs also sound better than the studio versions on the recent "Greatest Hits" collection, as if you needed an extra reason to buy this.
The Cure's repertoire ranges from pop gems to dark, less accessible tracks appreciated mostly by confirmed fans, and while "Paris" (another live album released around the same time) concentrates on the latter, "Show" has enough of the pop to give it a wider appeal. It also came at a time when most of the band's best live tracks had already been written: while in my view "Bloodflowers" is their best studio album, none of its tracks or those on "Wild Mood Swings" are concert highlights.
The only problem with this is that "Show" will delight neither die-hard fans, who will criticize the inclusion of too many poppy tracks and mourn the absence of "A Forest" and "Play For Today", nor "casual" listeners who, like the Amazon reviewer, mourn the absence of "The Lovecats" and "Close To Me" and question the inclusion of less accessible tracks. All I can say is that Cure music is neither Lovecats nor Forest: it is both, and everything inbetween, and Show does a pretty good job of mixing these extremes and giving a taste of the full Cure range.
So, what is in this "showcase"? There are plenty of tracks from their most recent (at the time) studio album, "Wish".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cure's best concert captured in CD! 13 Aug 2012
By Mozi
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Cure fan since the 80s, and really loved most of their albums, especially 'Wish'. This album captures most of the concert's best performances (excluding the encore where they played Boy's don't cry, To wish impossible things, etc - as seen in VHS version)...basically a tour for the Wish album.

I wanted a DVD but not sure if they have released it yet. Well, this is the next best thing...very atmospheric, very live sounding and I consider the versions of 'Pictures of You' and 'From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea' to be the best ever captured digitally.

I've seen the Cure live in Singapore a few years back and I must say that they are fantastic playing live.
