A Return to Cuckoo-Ville,
This review is from: 4:13 Dream (Audio CD)
I wont go into as much detail as other reviewers have already done but overall this is a return to form for The Cure. While not Disintegration or The Head on the Door, 4:13 Dream is still a welcome return to the Cure's madcap eclectic style, it contains smiths crazed lyrics and guitar while the songs cover both morose and happy subject matter. Its mixture of styles reminds me of 92s 'Wish' no doubt because of the return of Porl Thompson on lead guitar, something that adds real flair to tracks such as Switch and The Real Snow White.
While Kiss me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and Wish did the 'mixed-bag' Cure style better 4:13 Dream is a much more accessible and fun album then the last 3 album the band have released.. in short not there best, not there worst.
