I bought this after losing my original many years ago. I have to admit I was concerned that the passage of so many years and rose coloured tinted memories, that the tracks would not hold the same captivation as previously. I was wrong..... this album is better the second time round! Each track is well crafted and easily could be viewed as stand alone singles (as in "Staring At The Sea"), but the depth a variety of the styles piques and recedes, and provides an all-round spine tingling, hair standing, eye-liner rubbing experience. To (what feels like) an old Goth - this was a very welcome excursion back to my formative years!

Not the very best Cure album,that honour goes to Pornography and/or Wish closely followed by Disintegration.Having said that,this is a very good album.It was released in 1987 at the height of their popularity.I have many Cure albums on vinyl,cassette and cd but this is one I missed.I already knew many tracks and bought the 7 inch single "Catch" at the time.It is lengthy as it was a double album on vinyl,but remains consistently good throughout !

The second best Cure album ever made.

A 17 track varied masterpiece with Robert Smith at the height of his powers and songwriting ability.

Only surpassed by their next album Disintegration.

An essential purchase but make sure you buy the Double CD Limited Edition if you can get it for the added Demos, Rarities and B-Sides.

Simply a classic. Missing from my collection for far too long. A break of a decade allows for new listening of once overlooked tracks. Back on repeat...again.

'Kiss Me...' was one of the three-lovely double-albums of 1987 (the others being Prince's 'Sign'o'the Times' & Husker Du's 'Warehouse (Songs & Stories)'). Must have been something they were putting in the water!
There are some moments that would sit easily on 'Pornography'- notably 'The Kiss', 'The Snakepit' & 'Shiver & Shake' (the latter about Lol Tolhurst, who would be ejected from the band the following year). There are tracks that could have fitted on 'Faith': 'A Thousand Hours' & 'One More Time' being such songs (the latter was leading to the sound of 'Disitergration'). There are poppy songs that could have fitted on 'The Head on The Door': 'The Perfect Girl',the 'A Night Like This'-sounding 'All I Want' & the seminal 'Just Like Heaven' (another take on 'In-Between Days', memorably covered by Dinosaur Jr.). There are psychedelic-moments that are better realised than those on the patchy 'The Top': 'If Only Tonight We Could Sleep' & 'Like Cockatoos'. There is chuff: 'Icing Sugar' & 'Hey You' (not included on the cd-version). Shame that b-sides like 'A Japanese Dream' & 'Snow in Summer' would be passed over!...There are moments of pop-genius, Smith & co. at the height of their powers (as good at it as XTC around this period. Forget the Beatles!): 'Catch' and 'How Beautiful You Are' being those magical-moments...We have stadium-friendly Psychedlic Furs circa 'Midnight to Midnight' style rock in the form of 'Torture' & 'Fight'. And we have the irritaing pop-songs: 'The Lovecats' re-write 'Why Can't I Be You?' (which is less charming without its Cure do Five Star video) and the 'Hot Hot Hot!!!'- which sounds like something off 'Stop Making Sense'. Whatever, despite lapses in quality this album is an eclectic blend of styles- capturing the period in which Smith would move from punky-Buzzcockian pop to doomy guitars to psychedelic madness to the best pop songs ever. Sadly, after 'Disintergration' Smith & Co. would tread water until 'Blood Flowers'. This is a great collection of songs and as good as The Beatles 'White Album', Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk' and Todd Rundgren's 'Something?/Anything?'. And let's face it, any album with 'How Beautiful You Are' on just has to be owned!
