This album is actually one of my favourites from the cure. It has my all time favourite song, mint car on it. It does have a good mix of both upbeat and happy songs (mint car, return) and sad, emotional ones (treasure, jupiter crash). This is the album that really got me obsessed with the cure and I'd suggest it to almost anyone. At least eight of the songs on the album are superb and the rest are good at worst, not a single song that is bad (but the same could be said with any cure album). Buy it!!

The Cure's tenth studio album and the quality bar is still set very high after the brilliant ninth album wish.

Opening with the most fantastic guitar riff and melody on the first song Want, it continues at a consistently high level through the following 13 tracks.

I feel it's only let down by the choice of singles The 13th and Mint Car - one of these should have been replaced with the fantastic Gone!

This is a Lie, Numb and the stunning final track Bare are all superb as well.

Possibly the Cure's last really great album, although the eponymously titled The Cure from 2004 does come close to the standard set here.

A definite five star purchase.

Very Highly Recommended.

I have all the Cure albums and this one does NOT deserve the bad press it receives. Far from thinking it's their out-and-out worst record I actually think this is one of their better ones! The title says it all - "Wild Mood Swings" - therefore those who expect a cohesive album are in for a shock. Pretty much all styles are given the Cure makeover here and I think that's what puts people off. You can't get into a certain mood and stay there; the album has you bopping, then slitting your wrists and everything inbetween! It's supposed to be like that, hence the title! Besides; The Top, Head On The Door and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me have more or less followed the same formula. It's not their best album but did anyone seriously expect that several decades into their career?? Just because a band releases an album that isn't their very best it doesn't mean that they should split-up! I prefer this to 'Bloodflowers' and 'The Cure' which came after it, if that's any help.

Before buying this album i read quite a lot of negative reviews on these pages and found the album often derided in other cure album reviews like " its not their best but its not as bad as wild mood swings" etc. Well, i went ahead and bought the album and whilst it may not be the best album by the cure it is definetly a very fine album indeed. The thing is cure fans are one of three types-they either prefer the dark side like Pornography and Disintegration, they like the lighter side like Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me and Head on the Door or they like a bit of both, like me. Well WMS is definetly the popier side of the cure and all the more interesting for it. The cure have always been great at doing good pop songs from boys don't cry, the caterpillar, close to me and so on. WMS is very varied and i think that puts the disintegration fans off as it is a bit all over the place but for me its far more interesting a listen. Importantly though it has some brilliant songs and really just a couple of ok songs-tracks like The 13th and Mint Car which were singles of course are fab and Jupiter Crash, Round and Round and Round and the lovely Treasure are some of the cure's best work. Now i know i'm speaking out of turn here but being of a certain age i lost interest in the darker side of the cure sometime after Pornography and so whilst i can appreciate Disintegration, in my opinion song for song it is far from their best album. Lyrically its good and probably its the weakest side of WMS but i can live with that. So if you enjoy the pop genius of Mr Smith and co please don't be put off this album because it deserves much higher praise than it gets on here-buy it and you will be pleasantly surprised.

This is a fantastic Cure album, even though there are mixed reviews out there! Its called Wild Mood Swings as it is just that!! I'm slightly biased as " Strange Attraction " is one of my top 10 fave Cure tracks!! Buy it!!

For a couple of years 1989 - 1993, in my teens aged 16 to 19, the Cure were my favourite band. But like many intense teenage infatuations it had a shelf life. It's something I've been contemplating since only recently buying Wild Mood Swings. For me the Cure lost huge momentum when they failed to produce an album for four years after Wish. By the time Wild Mood Swings appeared the Britpop hype had gripped the country with a power not really seen by a music scene since punk. Which meant that Smith, a man well acquainted with mourning the passing of time, was no longer cool or in and Smith was by 1996 closer to 40 than 30.

The Cure no longer with the world at their feet found that their fanbase had grown up particularly I would guess their 80s fans and even younger fans like me, who came late to the band at their zenith in 1989, had moved on to discover other artists and eras past and present. Perhaps they could have maintained their fans pouring in by the truck load between Disintergration and Wish and the ensuing world tours better?

But post Wish The Cure didn't really do anything to cultivate their fans or their career. Admittedly with websites, enewsletters and fansites that is much easier now but the point is that Wild Mood Swings is a very fine album that somehow got lost. No doubt it sold fairly well but The Cure could have done so much more in the 1990s instead they let their career slide.

In a way they almost lost interest in themselves which is quite something if you consider how their only real contemporaries - U2 and REM - boomed through the same decade.
