Let`s be clear from the start, "Faith" is not that accessible for the first time listener. I`ts very,very, far from being at all "Jolly!" & could happily be played from start to finish,at any given wake! Having said all that,It is still my favourite Cure album. It has a more Orchestral feel than anything else they have done & truly flows, as each song blends the next. Robert Smith is at his poetic best here,linking seemingly unrelated sentences into songs & offering subject matters that only he really understands, but we all can somehow relate to. His lyrics paint pictures that are mostly tragic, but always beautiful. This album was & is, perfect,"End of the party music" No individual hit singles here, But a beautiful offering as a whole.
