5.0 out of 5 stars better than ever., 25 Dec 2006
This review is from: The Cure: Festival 2005 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Could they ever manage without keyboards ? Many thought not, but one thing this DVD does highlight is the genius guitar playing of Porl Thompson. His ability to replicate keyboard parts on guitar is stunning and you only really miss the keys on about 3 songs.

Captured over the summer of 2005 this DVD encompasses pretty much their whole career, though there are a few notable ommissions; nothing from their first album ( unfortunately ) , Wild Mood Swings ( thankfully ) or Bloodflowers. Totally blistering versions of The Blood, Push, M, Never Enough and Play For Today. The highlight has to be 100 years, so aggressive and intense, it's never sounded so good live.

The jerky camera angles can be a bit irritating, but this does add to the overall excitement of the show and you do get used to them pretty quickly.

In 22 years of attending Cure gigs i can honestly say that this current lineup is the most powerful i've seen and this DVD captures that power and excitement perfectly.
