Well if you're just a casual listener you might not appreciate it...And yeah, Staring at the Sea is a good alternative...

I'd say go with Smudged's recs first, especially if you haven't heard much other Cure stuff. It's a little bit different from everything else that I've heard from them (though of course someone will probably end up telling me that I"m an idiot with no music knowledge etc etc). Like, it's a great album (yes, it has A Forest on it), but the other recs are probably better in the meantime

Pornography
Faith
Seventeen seconds

these albums are really dark.(according to your nickname).

EDIT: including The top,of course (some songs)

I already have Pornography.

Yeah, perhaps the Trilogy is the best idea.

Though isn't Disintegration and not Seventeen Seconds part of the Trilogy?

Disintegration is part of a different trilogy, with Blooflowers and another one that's slipped my mind.

disintegration can`t be a part of the trilogy because it`s not that dark,
it`s a mix of everything-mostly lovesongs.very sentimental.

Disintegration is one of a kind...

I'd say the trilogy is Seventeen Seconds,Faith and Pornography.

And Bloodflowers is like a darker-mood(ish) Wild Mood Swings, but thats just me.

Nothing beats "Just Like Heaven". Actually I am completely torn over which I think is better. Dinosaur Jr.'s "J.L.H." Vs. The Cure's. Dinosaur Jr.'s "Just Like Heaven" is my choice for best cover ever. So fricking good.

Lol. I love The Cure to death. I own every album availible, but have yet to figure out which one is my favorite. They're all amazing. I love the unreleased Pornography instruments, but I'd say its a tie between the head on the door and Disintegration. I really dont know.

i live in the woods.here everything is made of wood.
i have a nice wooden computer carved in Biedermeier style.
even my family is made of wood so i have to polish them every
few hours.
nevermind. actually you could send the guitar material so i can sing on that.

lmao, so I assume you're made of wood as well?

if we lived in pre-Christian times and the computers existed, you would certainly be either worshipped or persecuted.

Either way, sounds like a great idea. I'm looking for some way to record atm, once that's settled I can send you some guitar tracks and some wood polish for your family



Just out of curiosity, if you don't mind me asking, where are you from?

I didn't say I liked the Dinosaur Jr. version better. I said I was torn over which one I liked better. Go look again. Also note I never edited it. It has always said just what I posted. Please read my posts before telling me where I am allowed to post. Also liking ONE version of a song better doesn't mean I don't like The Cure.
