25 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
GAH! I know a birthday gift from RS and gang was too much to ask for.
Is the European date still the same?
No update on that, yet.
Why? I'd seriously love to know why a major label can't release anywhere near on time. I'm so sick of this now... it'll never be out, I accept that now. I'm off to forlornly look at my Trilogy booklet.
Aw MAN... At least I'll be home to get it with this date :P Also, WHAT MORE CAN THERE BE TO DO TO IT?? I don't understand hah...
this time we have a right to be mad. may 24th was sort of official. robert DID post it on the webpage.
thank goodness I have learned NOT to hold my breath on these dates.
The promo sampler is doing nicely..For now..
Notherbob: At least you were able to download it! RAR files and I don't get along... :)
The Promo Set 'availability' reminds me of the 'olive branch' that Hypnagogic States was offered as, anyone else think this? Here's hoping that Mixed Up 2 and Wish see the light of day SOON!!! 30 year DVD, In Orange Blu Ray, BBC Box Set, i-Tunes album, GIVE ME IT!!!!!! I'm still waiting for musical pieces that were recorded by all the acts from Curiosa, as per the tour book, maybe the 30th anniversary, 2034?!?!?
The 3x CD version is probably sitting in boxes ready to go.... just waiting for the double-LP to make its through the backlog at the vinyl pressing plants.
I just made a video for "The Same Deep Water As You" group demo, here is the youtube linkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0kZkj2XThw
Previews of all the tracks??That's like saying to a child "Here's a box of chocolates, eat all the wrappers and give me the sweeties back"!!
Seriously, why is it that there are always these problems when a release date is set for anything pertaining to The Cure? You don't typically hear this happening with other bands yet whenever The Cure set a release date (or whoever is setting the date) inevitably it takes 2-3 more tries to get the material out. This isn't even new material - what's the problem?
Just found this at "CDWOW.US" for $20.99, through Sunday! And that includes shipping to the States!! Can't beat that, especially with Amazon at $35.99. Their regular price seems to be $22.99, but that's still excellent.
Stop teasing us with 30 second previews. Oh btw Craig, I'm 5 for 5 with this series of Dr Who. Hope they can keep it up.
Who cares.......the delays are really anoying.
About the previews:I know the audio quality is sh*t but I can notice Robert has changed the big snare drum sound present in the first release of Entreat, and has replaced it for a dry jason-like snare drum sound!!!I hope I'm wrong and it's only the bad sound quality of Amazon, but I'm almost sure Robert has badly messed with Boris' sound!Bob is out of mind (fat and old)!
The song "esten" really sounds great !!!
Esten, Noheart and a demo of Delirious Night have been leaked for a while now. Not sure if they are from the remaster or if someone got hold of the demos a while ago.
Are the insults really necessary, Richard?
@hinreckandjoe: well, in this case yes! i have listened to the tracks in discs 1 and 2 and I can say that they have that wonderful Boris sound! but Entreat has been crippled & degraded to a jason-like sound (cardboard box sound)! and the mix has been altered too, making it sound like a mess (a.k.a "current Cure sound") I'm hatting Bobby!
Don't hate me, but I think the drums sound great on the entreat portion. First thing I noticed actually.
i hope everyone's mistaken and they didn't wreck the drums on entreat ( purposely haven't listened yet)and if he did... what of orange. what a tragedy that would be!
Well, as long as you are just hatting Bobby, I guess it's fine.o_q
Mmm.. a few people have commented on the 'butchering' of the drum sound on Entreat..I'm only going by the promo sampler, which is in RAR/mp3 format and it was mentioned in another thread. The sound quality of these files are going to be inferior due to the format it's in. lt is pointless trying to judge anything until we have the final product in our hands..

It is a totally different snare sound. It's missing a lot of the original's low-end and the big gated reverb isn't so...... well, big anymore. I doubt they completely re-sampled in another snare drum, but it was mutilated with EQ. The promo track MP3s aren't the greatest audio quality, but they're good enough to tell that that isn't what's causing such a drastically different sound.
entirely different drum sound on entreat and very dissapointing
i do like how they made the bass and the guitars crisper. and the keys louder. if only the snare had that big swoosh too it it would all sound pretty rad
So I was right and Bob messed with Boris sound! aaarrrgghhhhh! >:(I take this as a provocation to Cure fans who hate Jason's sound!I repeat: Bob has become fat & old and to make thing worse, has lost respect to his old fans.
i have just finished listening to the promo tracks and i agree that the mix in Entreat is pure shit now!i hate how much Robert has butchered the reverb and punch of Boris snare drum in Disintegration! it even sounds strange like the snare has been completely replaced and even played live by Jason(?)... the reason i think this is that the relationship between the hi-hat/snare/bass drum is messy and out of time throughout the song! it sounds really bad and the lack of coordination is evident! WHAT HAS THEY DONE TO A MASTERPIECE?????
I agree that the snare sound on the new version of Entreat does not hold water to the original version. Hopefully when the set is released the difference won't be so glaring.. but I seriously doubt that will happen.
At least we have this untouched-drum versions of Plainsong and TSDWAY:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDoaGUgrng0The Same Deep Water as You:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcionF7w5-w&feature=channel
