5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it for the bass line, 18 Aug 2012
This review is from: Faith (Audio CD)
Remasters are sometimes a bit of a disappointment - typically the treble is boosted to increase "detail" but the result is hard to listen to. This remaster has focused on the bass and the level of detail is very involving and draws the listener in. If you know the album well I'm sure you will be delighted to hear it on such firm foundations, if you are new to The Cure, and have formed a taste for their quieter more reflective work then buy without hestitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic punk gem, 9 May 2009
This review is from: Self in Fiction (Audio CD)
Bought on a whim on the strength of a recommendation from an independent record store in Nottingham (now sadly closed) here is a literate, high energy gem. Melodic punk overlaid with a whining (in a good way) voice, reminiscent of Dynosaur Jnr at their "where you been?" peak. The phrase "not a duff track" is much misused, but comes true here unless you listen past the official last track to the disappointing buried one. Good in the car, and good on headphones, it's high energy but with lyrics that repay unwinding.
