Seriously: Plainsong, Last Dance, The Same Deep Water As You, Homesick and Untitled

Sometimes i think that Pictures of You isn't a top 5. The hit singles like Lovesong and Lullaby are prob the weakest songs there, but i love everything.

Pushing my face in the memory of you again
But I never know if it's real
Never know how I wanted to feel
Never quite said what I wanted to say to you
Never quite managed the words to explain to you
Never quite knew how to make them believable
And now the time has gone
Another time undone

Still a top 10 band for me. The first band I really ever fell in love with. I don't think they will ever get the credit they deserve. They are actually an incredibly diverse band, but somehow Robert got labeled the godfather of goth.

Both Kiss Me and Disintegration are top 20 albums for me, although the Japanese Whispers EP/collection has my two favs (Just One Kiss and Lament). I also love Faith.

I do tend to prefer the "darker" music, but also enjoy the "poppier" stuff. The kids and I dance to In Between Days at least once a month.

Definitely one of my favorite bands but to be honest, I haven't enjoyed anything they've done since Bloodflowers. Really excited that the Wish reissue could happen this year, though.

I thought the self-titled album (2004) was pretty fantastic.

Yes I love that S/T album, but not much has grabbed me since.
Any new album rumours?

Haven't heard any specific new album rumours yet, only recent news is that a South American tour this year is heavily hinted at and Reeves Gabrels is now referring to himself as a member of the band, as opposed to a guest or just helping out, which is good.

What I've heard is that Robert isn't too bothered about making more records. Apparently they've been working on new stuff but he is having some writer's block with the lyrics and doesn't seem to care if a new album happens or not. He isn't interested in putting out that other half of the 4:13 Dream sessions, either.

My collection is sadly lacking Cure albums. Used a few free tokens to snaffle the following:

Head on the Door
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
Wish
Faith; and
Pornography.

I already have (and love) Disintegration.

Tomorrow will be a Cure catch-up day.

THE MOMENT HAS ARRIVED!

Iconic British band The Cure announces its return to Latin America

with Shows in Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico.

LONDON, January 28th, 2013.

The Cure, one of the worlds’ most enduringly influential bands, at last returns to Latin America!

This iconic group, lead by singer and guitarist Robert Smith, has had an extraordinary career spanning more than 35 years and tens of millions of sales.

With a profusion of hit singles - including ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, ‘The Lovecats’, ‘Close To Me’, ‘Just Like Heaven’ and ‘Friday I'm In Love’ - and a range of classic albums - including ‘Pornography, ‘Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me’, ‘Disintegration’, ‘Wish’ and ‘Bloodflowers’ - the group has long been established as a global phenomenon.

While punk was still reverberating through popular culture, The Cure’s unique blend of moody, atmospheric and unforgettable songs pioneered a new era in popular music and marked them for greatness from the start. Their strong sense of theatricality and unique styling gave birth to entirely new subcultures, and new generations continue to discover their signature sound and make it the soundtrack to their lives.

In April 2013, The Cure finally returns to South America after 17 years!

The Cure ‘LatAm2013 Tour’ includes the following stops:

April 4th 2013 – HSBC Arena, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Cure - Robert Smith (vocals and guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keyboards) and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) - return in 2013 on the back of a run of 19 major European summer festival 2012 headline spots, which began at Pinkpop in May and ended at Eire's Electric Picnic in September, and included epic sets at Roskilde, Werchter, Hurricane, Maxidrom, Les Eurockeenes, Vieilles Charrues, Reading and Leeds along the way.

The Cure’s Robert Smith says;

“We are deliriously happy to be coming back to South America at last – we have been away for far too long! We will be playing 3+ hour shows, and have every intention of making this the most memorable Cure Tour EVER!”
