5.0 out of 5 stars a Walk in the park, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Japanese Whispers (Audio CD)
This album features two of The Cures greatest hits 'Love Cats' & 'Let's Go To Bed', which to me is a break through for the band since Seventeen Seconds, with songs that are more approachable to a wider market who weren't too keen on their moody material in Pornography.
For The Cure, it is a contemporary album since most of the tracks were computerized, which isn't really my sort of thing, but Robert Smith & Lol Tolhurts seemed to pull it off quite well in songs like 'The Walk', which introduces their quirky stuff.
It then goes on to jazzy themed songs like 'Speak My Language' which to me sounds like a song from The Doors with their robust piano playing, although, Smith's vocals are still as unique as ever.

It is sometimes hard to tell what the lyrics mean, some come out quite derranged, and fun as he shouts 'LIKE A JAPANESE BABY', his metaphors remain cryptic and arguable at describing. But it is easy to listen to with a variety of different types of songs, for a short album, it isn't bad at all if you're mad about the 80's at 17.
