  2. While I do not completely agree with these two reviews, they have made me exceedingly happy.

    It reminds me that a good friend once said to me "John, you are the most upbeat guy I know, how can you listen to the cure as much as you do?"

    Simple - They make me happy, look past all the "Goth" labels and listen to the music/words. It is tough to be sad.

    i don't understand why it's so hard for people to remember, haha. i mean, listen to the song.. he's clearly singing "close to me".. "close to you" wouldn't rhyme right :P

  6. That would be bacause they probably DIDN'T listen to the song...Lazy journalism is so common these days and this is a perfect example..Badly written,no shape, no depth...

  7. Ack, that Kiss Me review made me cringe. The writer bashes just about everything I like about the album (the long intros, the experimental songs that eschew common structures), while he praises all the songs that I normally skip. But I suppose that is to be expected from a magazine called "Pop Matters".

  8. yeah he criticized the percyssion experimentation in Like Cocateaus also, which I believe really makes the song, but you're right, it is called Pop Matters.... :P
