The Cure

Postby dougbrown93 on Tue Mar 23, 2004 11:02 am

Prompted by the surprise that Maui likes this lot of lipstick covered clowns i wondered howmany other people here like them?
I have NEVER liked them so the old addage that "oh their early stuff was good" just doesnt work for me with this lot.

Robert Smiths voice is excruciating and they have an annoying bass player! Nonces.

So whats the scoop? Suck/Blow or Jolly Good?

The odd decent song, but not a band I rate that highly. Don't like Robert Smith's voice either!

Hey, man, I'll put my cred on the line again and say that I think the Cure were pretty good. Not too convinced by more recent releases (Bloodflowers, Wild Mood Swings), but you canny whack Wish, Disintegration, Boys Don't Cry or Pornography...

It's probably worth saying that their existence was extremely important for the emergence of dozens of the bands in the 90s.

Not so keen on them either, although again, they did have the odd decent tune.

Time to stop messing about and go to work. :(

They have never done much for me. They don't offend though. Now the Wonderstuff... utter shite.

Have to say I was a big fan of them. Helped me in my quest to get into decent music. Boys Don't Cry, A Forest, the afore mentioned Pornography all classics. Having said that, haven't listened to them in a while. Think i'll put them on now and make sure they still sound good.

I think Seventeen Seconds is a really good album, and Faith was not too shoddy. The mid-80s onwards do not much for me, apart from the odd song or two. I really don't think they're pish at all.

I said yes, although I haven't bought a Cure album since Disintegration.
Boys Don't Cry is a huge album.

you know many who like them now Doug :wink:

I don't like them because Robert Smith wears make up...


...err, ok, a bit because of that. But they have good tunes and brings some memories that i sort of like, like New Order for example.

Cris' a like them a lot, more than i do anyway.
