This review is from: Bloodflowers (CD) (Audio CD)
This is supposed to be some kind of seminal Cure album, but I found it disappointing. The lyrics are true cure poetry but the music doesn't take them where they should go. Much as I enjoyed Disintegration I don't find Bloodflowers anywhere near as musically endearing, and that is what makes people buy. From the dark, mournful tones of Disintegration to the up-beat dark irony of Wild Mood Swings this new album comes across as a last-ditch attempt to win back the support "lost" when they released Wish. It just lacks something their other albums have plenty of.
