Disintegration rightfully takes its place as one of the very finest albums ever made. Robert Smith has poured his heart and deepest thoughts into this classic disc and it shows. The dreamy, trippy chiming intro to "Plainsong" has been many an opener for a Cure concert and unfolds in a glorious, sweeping epic track (albeit with very few lyrics) which sets that seal for an immortal album. The charming "Lovesong", a dedication to Robert's wife, shows where his heart is, and is accompanied by paranoic nightmarish visions about spiders, paralysis and coldness in the catchy but creepy "Lullaby". The beautiful but tragic "The Same Deep Water As You" shows a majestic poetry that few artists can match.
This album really needs no vast wordage. The proof of the album is in the listening. Even if you aren't a Cure fan, this is a very interestingly dark, deep work with haunting, despairing and also uplifting themes running wild in its content. To anyone who honestly hasn't heard this before, take some time out and listen to this one deeply with no distractions. It shows just how brilliant The Cure really are. Is it worth it? Every single penny.
