A welcome release,
This review is from: The Cure: Greatest Hits [DVD]  (DVD)
After the VHS release of the fantastic "Staring at the Sea," "Pictureshow" and "Galore" releases, it is a pleasure to be able to the music videos of The Cure in DVD format.
The title and menu screens for the DVD have been well put together. The songs shown are video highlights from the band's back catalogue and a small selection of specially recorded acoustic numbers from "Greatest Hits" CD.
My main criticism however is that the release is a rather lazy and uninspired effort by Fiction records. Apart from the acoustic video recordings, there are no other extras, such as documentaries, which would be welcome interaction. Worst of all, as pointed out by the previous reviewer, the early videos are low quality VHS reproductions cut from the 1986 "Staring at the Sea" release. You can clearly see where the video fades in mixed with footage from the previous scene. This looks sloppy.
Buy the DVD anyway though - The Cure is THE pop video band of the 80s and 90s.
