4.0 out of 5 stars that is good!, 22 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Head on the Door (Audio CD)
for a band to start their career by introducing themselves as 3 household appliances may seem odd, to continue afterwards until 1987 to have blurred sleeves, with images that the listener would struggle to make out, may seem perverse and to be honest im not sure if anyone else could do this and continue as well as the cure.......... beyond the blurred sleeves, lies some brilliant music, so open that cd case now take out the cd! Ahh the ever changing sound ofthe cure, over the years theyve been changing, and still continue to, this album , according to what i know, was a big hit, it was released in the year i was born (1985), and i think it is a very impressive album and starts the change of where the cure burst into the mainstream on their feet and never lost control over it.
This album crosses hits like close to me, in between days, with more dark and moody songs like the blood, kyoto song and of course the baby screams. Also it includes brooding, beautiful songs like sinking and one of the cures most sincere love songs in my opinion "a night like this". A lot of the songs are fun (six different ways, push, and obviousely the singles), sometimes epic, but the cure still dont forget to put in the more moody songs. Even the pop songs on this album incorporate what the cure are best known for, the certain bitter sweet love and strange , somehow dark lyrics, standing on its own, theres not a bad track, and a lot of stand out tracks, the baby screams is one of my favourites, but as the cure made more albums I have to give this four stars as the rightful claimants to the five stars came later (in my opinion) being the classic albums such as wish, disintegration, and bloodflowers... but thats not to say this isnt also a brilliant album, and is well worth your money. The only other problem with the album is that maybe i prefer my albums a little bit longer, but its still great! So go buy now, now now!
