Sound — 10
The music was very well composed. The band has been around for a little over 2 decades. There isnt really any guitar solos but it's still very enjoyable to listen to. A lot of it is very pop-oriented, but not "sugar" or "bubble-gum" pop.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are pretty good. Robert Smith is a very good writer. He mostly writes about different themes of love but its not too repetitive.
Overall Impression — 10
It's not as good as The Cure's other albums but its still very enjoyable to listen too. The best songs for me were Lost, Labrynth, Anniverary, and Alter. Ending. If I lost it or it god stolen, I'd wait a long time to miss it and then I would get it for my birthday from someone.
