5.0 out of 5 stars The calm before the storm, 6 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Faith (Audio CD)
This admittedly patchy album was and presumably still is held in almost religious regard by fans of the Cure. Like most really new creations it mixed less successful moments with others of astonishing revelation.

When this album works it works so well that all other music seems irrelevant. Its seductive draw is so compelling that it almost consumes the listener. Nowhere more so than on its title track.

In fact the core of this extraordinary release reveals itself in two songs: 'Faith' and 'All Cats Are Grey'. They are tonally and emotionally linked and indeed could be part of one work.

The remastered version features all sorts of stuff that may actually detract from the impact of the original although 'Carnage Visors' was on the original cassette release (on side B).

You can drown in this album. It's beautiful melancholy holds little clue to the punishing attack of the album that was to follow. Listen while the storm clouds gather.
