22 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
happy to see someone who agrees with me that freakshow is bad..

also, when I think of Freakshow as their take on the Monster Mash, I think it's brilliant.

WantClub AmericaLostLabyrinthBefore three BurnMaybe someday39FreakshowThe reason why
01. Labyrinth (strong bassline, one of the best Cure song)02. Want (best opener ever)03. Underneath The Stars (ok, another best opener..)04. It Used To Be Me (typical Cure sound)05. The Last Day Of Summer (beautiful and melanchilic, like The Cure..)06. It's Over (heavy, fast, brutal!!!)07. Fake (just love it!)08. Wrong Number (nice song, good video, during live it goes crazy)09. alt. End (silly, but good pop song.. like the bassline)10. The Reason Why (I really don't know why..)I didn't mentioned neither The Promise or The Scream, while they are my two biggest delusion in the last 20 years. Both songs starts as Cure masterpieces, but for the end they just turned to something really nerve-racking things.. There are just too many noises in these two tracks, everytime I reach the last minutes, I must swith to the next song..And here are three songs, that I never, ever listen, while they are so bad:Round & Round & Round, I Don't Know What's Going On (what the hell Robert want with this???, it's like a Meat Loaf parody..) and Dredd SongIn my opinion Wild Mood Swings is an avarage record, not so bad but not enough good to The Cure (and specialy after Wish). Bloodflowers is a better one, but I can't compleine it to Pornography and Disintegration. The Cure is their weakest record (I used to think that Japanese Whispers is that, but oh my God, what a difference!). 4:13 Dream is a sign for me that they still can make good music, but I really don't like the overall direction of the record (maybe the miss of the keyboards, or just a bad mix..I don't know..)
I really love their 3 last albums (and even WMS could have been a masterpiece with 3 less songs).
