5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best of the Cure, 21 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Bloodflowers (CD) (Audio CD)
It seems like I'm almost too old to be listening to the Cure. Although I'm not too old like Smith is for still playing in the Cure :) Fortunately this album provides a sense of mid-life maturity..resulting in my opinion one of the Cure's best albums (along with Disintegration). Songs are darker, deeper and more geniunely thoughtful than Wish (which is a relief). Lyrical composition reflects the Cure's sixth form style, but the content is far more truthful in reflecting Smith's 'getting on 40 something' (39) perspective on life. The songs are not commerical, whilst they geniunely assert their idiosyncrasy and classic cure palette - (drums may be the weakest part, although I like the rythms in Bloodflowers). The result is an album which is particularly unique (whilst completing the trilogy of pornography and disintegration) and ends the Cure on a sublimely low note played with surreptitious beauty and elegance.
