  2. Grouping in The Cure with the freaking New Kids on the Block??

    You know. Sometimes I think the Death Penalty needs to be expanded to include these kinds of crimes.

  4. Elise: Yes, I did. I guess I had asses on my mind, after reading their re-assessment of Disintegration. : )

  5. and yes, having read the "re-assessment" I think you should re-assess your decision to change it from re-asses!

  9. So almost half the songs on Disintegration are not considered 'Worthy'. WOW! these reviews and articles get dodgier and dodgier by the minute.

  10. in a way I think we should boycott these things. By visiting them we're creating hits and encouraging more of this lazy bollocks.

    or am i being niave?

  11. I agree, The Cure shouldn't have made a comeback after they broke up because they still wear make-up. That makes complete sense to me.

  12. YAH-WHO?: So when was the split? I must have missed that whilst sleeping in a bed made of flowers?

    JAMMYBIWHATSIT: Well its a review, and at least it wasn't written by Andy Gill. Somewhat missing the point of Disintegration...

    ... oh and there was only one song called Disintegration on Disintegration and one called Homesick. Sounds like it was th reviewers favourite track and he called it Disintegration. Now that's just slap dash journalism IMO - "slipshod production and unpolished" I think are the words he uses!

  13. All I can do is just shake my head.

    Elise! I thought of you the other day: Actor Hugh Jackman was on Oprah promoting the Luhrmann film Australia the other day.

    AND he brought TimTams for everyone in the audience! What ch out for the "Oprah effect" !!

  14. Just like Yahoo Serious, I can't take Yahoo seriously.

    I know, it's bad.

  15. Come back? What comeback, I thought the Cure have been around for years? Whatever dude! I'll take Robert Smith any way he looks like these days creepy looking or not!!!

    And really you've got take these so called music review/articles that love to slam The Cure with a grain of salt! Are they even worth reading anymore???

    ReplyDelete
  16. i didn't realize they'd renamed 'homesick' as 'disintegration.'

    plus, any idiot that gives the song 'disintegration' a blowoff two star review deserves to be ignored. fuck em.

  17. they never went away. some lineup changes, but new music every 4years or so. van halen should have never made a comeback as well as ac/dc.

  18. Not really agreeing with some of the song reviews but I thought that Jamsbio feature was a great read.

  19. Did anyone sample the comments in that Yahoo thing? New Kids fans bringing out the support big time!! LOL

    One commenter sums it up on the author:

    His dad?...he was famous...."Famous Amos" to be exact.
    Shawn?...he's the "Not So Famous Amos", and he seems a bit jaded.

    LOLERSKATES!!

  20. I wanna know when we're going to get that Robert Q&A session on the official site. Maybe he's pissed TMU off too much and they've given up.

  21. the yahoo thing really sucks, first, they never split up that i know of, and second the writer doesnt give any explanation on why they shouln't have "came back" he just talks about the make up, which, again.. SUCKS

  22. Yahoo article -
    Why can't journalist get over the lipstick and makeup? Just lazy lazy lazy journalism.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why no mention of Robert's birds nest hair-do and ill-fitting sneakers. another poorly researched article.
