Not for the faint hearted...,
This review is from: Disintegration (Audio CD)
There are times in our lives when certain pieces of music act as a trigger to memories of that particular time. Disintegration does this for me...
You have to be of strong, sober mind to listen to and enjoy this CD. If you are feeling angry and/or depressed it can drag you further into the depths of despair, such is its power.
The tracks are long and multi layered and they draw you in bit by bit until you become a part of the music. The lyrics too of some of the tracks are so agonised it's hard to describe and they send shivers down my spine and tears to my eyes even now, nearly twenty years later.
If you want an introduction to The Cure, then I'd suggest you look elsewhere. Once you have a few of the easier ones in your collection, then buy this and bathe in its dark beauty.......
