I've just been downloading a few of the tracks from this album. I'm now going to buy the CD again. Some 12 years or so ago this haunted me, as did 'disintergration'. Now at 30, the feelings are exactly the same - purely... haunting. I'm no music journalist so I don't have vocabulary to explain, but from an old fan - the substance is stil there after all these years and it can only be classed as classic. Not their best work, but close albeit very dark. I will not become a goth again but I'll be buying the CDs, DVDs for those insomniac nights. Recommended to any Cure dabblers out there.

This admittedly patchy album was and presumably still is held in almost religious regard by fans of the Cure. Like most really new creations it mixed less successful moments with others of astonishing revelation.

When this album works it works so well that all other music seems irrelevant. Its seductive draw is so compelling that it almost consumes the listener. Nowhere more so than on its title track.

In fact the core of this extraordinary release reveals itself in two songs: 'Faith' and 'All Cats Are Grey'. They are tonally and emotionally linked and indeed could be part of one work.

The remastered version features all sorts of stuff that may actually detract from the impact of the original although 'Carnage Visors' was on the original cassette release (on side B).

You can drown in this album. It's beautiful melancholy holds little clue to the punishing attack of the album that was to follow. Listen while the storm clouds gather.

Fantastic. I lost the original version years ago, so I was delighted when I spotted this Deluxe Edition with bonus CD and stuff.

I know that this has been superseded by a deluxe version, but that's for the devoted fan. I got into this band when I heard their stunning debut single, "Killing An Arab" and, for me, their first three albums, of which this is the last, are their best. I lost interest after this. You only need to glance at the track listing for confirmation of Robert Smith's state of mind when "Faith" was made. There are no histrionics or shock tactics: this is a genuine piece of dark art, far more powerful and honest than anything the dreadful Joy Division/New Order ever perpetrated.

"The Holy Hour" should be titled "The Unholy Hour". Its characteristic bassline is the musical equivalent of someone shovelling earth out of a hole. "All Cats Are Grey" is frighteningly simple, the percussion used as a lead instrument over a basic keyboard part. This is a track that breathes on your neck. If Hammer Films had been into music this is the record they'd have made.

this is the first cure album that i bought and my favourite.
robert smith and co produce a fantastic desolate piece of work.
there's no doubt that it is a very dark album(not one to listen on a summer barbecue party!!!)
An album to listen at night with headphones and possibly dream
