5.0 out of 5 stars A Lucky Thirteen Dream....., 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: 4:13 Dream (Audio CD)
I have been a fan of The Cure for nearly 25 years and own everything they have ever released. Robert Smith has always been capable of producing something special. The only exception to that would be the 2004 self titled effort, which was disappointing, not because of the songs themselves, but the very poor production by Ross Robinson. It actually sounded like it was recorded in a toilet. Whether that was Smith's fault or Geffen's I dont know. Im happy to say that this album is a very big improvement and easily their best 'light' album since Wish (no Just Like Heaven re-writes here)... It would be unfair to compare it to Bloodflowers a different concept. There is a rich diversity of styles which has always been a strong point of previous releases. From the bleak opening 'Underneath The Stars' (one of my favourites), to Simon Gallups New Order type bass riff of 'Reasons Why' - brilliant!!, 'The Hungry Ghost', 'This here and Now with You', and 'The Scream' are also strong contenders. The Cure's fanbase has always been split into those who prefer the poppier side to the band and those who like the darker version. Im the rare breed who loves both - 'Pornography', 'Faith', and 'Disintegration, will always be my favourite albums, but so is 'Kiss Me' and 'Head On The Door'. I can appreciate that a band who has been around for thirty years now probably wont scale those heights again, but who could?
However this is a very welcome return to form and an excellent album. Roll on the 'Dark' half next year (If it materialises!) and Robert Smith give Geffen the K.O......

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the album!!, 11 Aug. 2008
Great song from a great band. I honestly thought that Smithy had lost it a little in the singles department but these new releases have proved me wrong and im really looking forward to the new release. Their last album could have been great but was spoilt by Ross Robinsons production. Porl Thompsons return and guitar work has made a big difference (and to the artwork!)The B side 'Without You' is classic Cure - brilliant! and those thinking they are past it should go and perhaps listen to overblown and bloated U2. Bono please retire!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent reading, 17 Sept. 2006
This is an excellent book for those with a deep thinking,wider outlook, on a subject which still raises the biggest question of all in our lives, what happens when we die? Its both an uplifting and compelling read, and doesnt touch on neither religion or beliefs, but rather accounts from people over the last 100 years - ghosts, out of body experiences, re - incarnation, and much more. I really recommend this book and guarantee it will change the way you look at life after reading it.
