3.0 out of 5 stars it must be my age!, 30 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disintegration (Audio CD)
Sorry to be so out of step with the majority of reviews for this album but as someone who's been listening to them from pretty much the start i just don't get it with this album. Its fine, its ok but it IS NOT great. I agree with one of the other reviewrs on here who suspects the positive reviews come mainly from people who got into the cure with this album. At the time the cure had reached super stadium size along with Depeche Mode and so they were at a commercial peak but they were not at a creative one! The songs all sound like they were worked out in the rehersal room with most of them made up of a repetitive riff with a keyboard melody line over the top. I think it appeals to the doom merchants as you can imagine being a spotty student listening to it in your darkened bedroom etc. Its not a bad album and there are some good moments, mainly towards the end of the album but seriously none of the songs would make it into my top 10 cure tracks. The songs individually are just not that strong-they're ok. The new release is a nice package and its worth buying especially if you like Faith, Pornography and the later Bloodflowers but i think all 3 of those albums are stronger song by song than Disintegration.
