21 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
hehe awesome x]
That took me a few minutes to understand it. Weird. How do the later albums equate to reality, ie "Then your parents make you get a job"?
@muldfeld, I think they mean how man albums you own... At least that's how I interpreted it :)
Thanks for validating my useless attempt to understand this.
notdeadyet, based on looking at the other posts about other bands, I'm pretty sure it refers to the sequence of official albums.For example, U2: 1-2 "Nice guy..."; 3-6 "...but what a windbag!"; 7-8 "He babbled about art..."; 9 "...danced badly..."; 10-12 "...and repeated himself."7-8 refers to U2's experimental phase: "Achtung Baby" and "Zooropa," and 9 refers to the unsuccessful attempt at dance music, "Pop". 10-12 refer to U2's more mainstream work this past decade that ripped off some of their older melodies.
muldfeld's got it. Personally, I think the numbering's off ('beautifully sad' should refer to Wild Mood Swings and Bloodflowers, imo)As to getting a job...my guess is that those last albums are accused of being 'sell-out' albums, which doesn't make much sense to me...although Bloodflowers and the self-titled one are accused of being "Cure-by-Numbers" sometimes. Not by me, though :)
I think the 'your parents make you get a job' refer to getting old and becoming like everyone else (unlike how you feel when you're a rebellious teenagers).In many ways (not to me) The Cure since 'Wish' have become like many bands of their age, not really pushing the boundries or being different but alwyas being there and part of the scene. Also it ties in with how most of the Cures core audience are now older and do have jobs, rather than being in their teens or early 20s like they were years ago. Added to that albums 10-13 reflect the 4 year curse and how Robert could have been doing other 'jobs' before returning to his hobby.
oops my bad then!! I totally misinterpreted it, sorry! *blushes* thanks for explaining it the right way haha :)
notdeadyet, It's totally understandable. It's such a weird idea and really poorly done with regard to The Cure. Whoever did it can't be much of a fan.
