The Cure ~ Wild Mood Swings
Top Customer Reviews
Opening with the most fantastic guitar riff and melody on the first song Want, it continues at a consistently high level through the following 13 tracks.
I feel it's only let down by the choice of singles The 13th and Mint Car - one of these should have been replaced with the fantastic Gone!
This is a Lie, Numb and the stunning final track Bare are all superb as well.
Possibly the Cure's last really great album, although the eponymously titled The Cure from 2004 does come close to the standard set here.
A definite five star purchase.
Very Highly Recommended.
Anyway W.M.S. kicks off with Want, which is one of the few really brilliant songs on the album and was in fact quite a taste as to the direction the band would go in for the follow up album, Bloodflowers (2000). The next song, Club America, happens to be in my opinion one of The Cure's best ever songs. This is the sound of Jimi Hendrix if he had used sitars on any of his faster songs (or ANY of his songs) and it's got an excellent bridge with a guitar refrain lifted entirely from David Bowie's Man Who Sold The World. Quite a mix for one song and it's easily the joint-best song on the whole album !
The other joint-best-song, This Is A Lie, follows straight after. A string quartet plays over a sad accoustic guitar chord structure, with lyrics that every person will face at some point in their lives (i.e. the why am I here and what am I doing with my life type questions !!). The 13th follows and was the first single from the album. It's a nice latino tune which sounds like it came straight out of Brazil or Cuba and knowing how much South America loves The Cure it was probably number one in both countries for about 3 years !!Read more ›

For a couple of years 1989 - 1993, in my teens aged 16 to 19, the Cure were my favourite band. But like many intense teenage infatuations it had a shelf life. Read morePublished on 9 Aug. 2009 by Zuma

After the relatively straightforward pop of Wish, the Cure moved back toward stranger, edgier territory with Wild Mood Swings. Actually, that's only part of the truth. Read morePublished on 22 May 2001
