Cursive

Any fans? My friend recommended "The Ugly Organ" to me awhile ago and I was pretty impressed, but they don't seem to get alot of mention, which is too bad.

yeah The Ugly Organ is a great album. I couldn't stop lsitening to it for months when I first got it. Then one day I did. Yeah anyway, great band. Check out Burst & Bloom by them as well if you're looking for more stuff.

And check out Kasher's other band The Good Life, I prefer 'em tbh, though each to their own of course

Yeah, I frickin love them, actually I love anything by Tim Kasher at the moment...

The Ugly Organ is something of a masterpiece in my humble opinion....

Ah, Cursive, whatta band. Tim Kasher's voice is sex.

You can't really compare The Good Life to Cursive, I mean, they're two very different types of bands.

The only thing the bands do have in common is Tim Kasher and their awesome-ness.


Eh, I really like....all albums.


Each album has their own sound. The only album that's a tad bit different is 'Such Blinding Stars'.
It's a really really depressing album, but I love it.

Can't wait for the new album. I find Cursive's best stuff was before Gretta.

I think they'll still churn out the same great music.

New album is fantastic, but I still can't shake Happy Hollow out of my CD player.

I only have "The Ugly Organ" and its one of my favorite albums to listen to straight through. I've never listened to other stuff by them for fear of being disappointed.
