5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy and energetic song!, 24 July 2008
This review is from: Sleep When I'm Dead (Audio CD)
Well, I bought this single during my stay in Germany (It's a little bit hard to find new Cure singles in Moscow). I loved the live version of Sleep When I'm Dead dearly, of all new songs it was my favourite (after A Boy I never Knew and Underneath the Stars, of course!). To be honest, I needed some time to get used to the studio recording of the song, at first I was shocked how different it turned out... But now I can say I love this single mix as much! SWID live was raw and punky, while mix 13 offers more dreamy, transparent mood, with all kinds of interesting sounds. The lyrics are also great - sometimes ironic and even sarcastic in the unique Smith's way.

The b-side, Down Under,reminds me of the Glove, especially of All Around Us the Mermaids Sang - Down Under has the similar sea feeling, stressed by Robert Smith's vocals, enwrapped in the airy, otherworldly melody. It matches the a-side very well. I'll give it 5 out of 5!

PS: To all who whines that Cure's fire is "almost out" and "there's nothing left to burn": If you don't love new Cure's stuff, if the Cure is not your band anymore, why can't you leave them alone and find you another band you CAN love?

I totally agree with this reviewer. We saw the band live at Wembley Arena in March and they are still superb. They played old stuff, new stuff, obscure stuff and the hits everybody knows so well, all fantastic. This band are a class act.
