My first exposure to The Cure was the singles collection, which I loved, so the eclecticism of Kiss Me fit right alongside that nicely. Unfortunately, this meant that I didn't really enjoy their more cohesive albums nearly as much. I find myself struggling to get through many of the albums that hardcore Cure fans consider to be their best.

This is the first Cure album that I couldn't just enjoy start to finish. There are a couple filler tracks imo, and "Catch" is just insipid.

"Catch" is one of Robert's most enduring songs. one of the highlights from this impeccable album.

"Catch" is so great, perfect second song on this record. "The Perfect Girl" kinda sounds like "Sweet Home Alabama."

Love "Catch," don't love a lot of this album.

I love Catch too, but I still can't believe it was a single. I think I ended up with two different versions of the 12". Great song but odd choice for a single.

I think it's an odd choice for a second single, especially when "Just Like Heaven" is an option. But I think it would've made sense as the 4th single after "Hot Hot Hot!!!".

Yeah, I mostly agree... I can listen to everything from Three Imaginary Boys up until The Head on the Door without really wanting to skip anything, even the tracks I'm less keen on. Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me probably would have worked better condensed down to a single LP.

'Catch' is... alright, I suppose. One of the lesser/less essential '80s tracks, and a momentum killer on the record, too... I find myself often skipping it to get to the excellent 'Torture'

That 'Torture' got zero votes and 'Catch' got five is just stupid.

just listened to Catch and it really hit me. It's been a while.

I love "Catch" and "Torture". KMKMKM is my favorite Cure album. I love that it's long, I wish they'd found a way to include "A Japanese Dream" and "Breathe" too.

Torture, Hey You and Fight are the only bum notes on this album. The length, the sprawl, the scope are key to the album. HOTD sounds like a set of tinny demos in comparison

The Head on the Door is one of the absolute best records The Cure ever made, so I couldn't possibly agree.

To each their own. I’d rank it at the bottom of their pre-92 imperial phase

Did you mean Chain of Flowers and Breathe? I thought A Japanese Dream was pre-87

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 9 October 2017 15:04 (nine months ago) Permalink

HOTD is the best Cure album though.

Eh.

"A Japanese Dream" was the B-Side to "Why Can't I Be You". (x-post)

Oh yeah, that is good. I was thinking of The Upstairs Room.
