Product description

Product Description


Commerce being commerce, bands rarely have the luxury of writing their own epitaphs--after all, posthumous compilations can be tweezed from careers one-twentieth as long or as influential as the Cure's. But according to Robert Smith, the moving, strangely dignified Bloodflowers is, in every sense that matters, the Cure's full stop; a concept album about not making albums any more. And if you're the sort who never believes au revoir hype, one listen should put paid to your scepticism, and two should prove it's a keeper on musical grounds alone. Two years in the making, this companion to Pornography and Disintegration begins with the words "we'll look back at it all ... wide-eyed" and ends with the title track's Socratic dialogue between mutability and constancy; faith and loss. In between, there's a subdued tone but no weariness in its shape-shifting beats ("The Loudest Sound"), statements of intent ("Maybe Someday" insisting "Don't want what I did"), a true-hearted, sweetly ridiculous love song ("There Is No If") and a fearless eye-to-eye with age (the "How Soon Is Now"-ish "39"). And, everywhere, those yearning, depthless, ravishing flanged guitars. Simply put, it's that rarest of things: a goodbye that's deliberate, thoughtful, fond and gentle, and yet as tough-minded as most pop is wilfully craven. --Jennifer Nine
