Unbelievably edgy and way off centre. Pure genius!

I love the Cure. Robert Smith is a seriously underated genius. 4:13 Dream is 50 minutes of edgy, raw and angry music that the Cure do so well. I agree with other reviews here that you can't stop playing this CD and you can't get this stuff out of your head. From the first track 'Underneath the Stars' through the current single 'The Only One' and off to tracks like 'It's Over', this band simply confirms what we already know. Their sound is distinctive. Smith's lyrics and method of delivery is compelling. This is a very, very good album. Great rock music is either arrogant or confident or both; it's a fine line. These guys do it well. There are even some surprises in style and sound so it's not 'Cure by Numbers'. Play it and play it loud! Great British rock that is as disfunctional as the crazy times we live in.
