The Cure - Disintegration
11521423.jpg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disintegration

I made it in on the last day of the month, but I've been busy.
Anyway, what we have here people is a quintessential piece from that era when the 90's were just rolling in and the 80's were already fading away. Depeche Mode was set top release a new album just months after the Cure, U2's Rattle and Hum was still booming, Siouxsie and the Banshees were kicking ass, and it was just a great time for music in general.

This is on my top of favorite Cure albums. I wouldn't say it my top Cure album, I think Head on the Door takes that spot, but it is does hold a special place in my heart. I was in junior high, just getting ready for high school and at this time, this album was one of those where I had to repurchase it because the tape got worn out on my walkman.

This is one of those albums, that when I got to high school, became a conversation with girls at school dances and opened the opportunity for some low level fun times. Pictures of You is a beautiful song. And come on, Fascination Street and Prayers for Rain are just Cure staples. Lullaby for crying out loud. Fucking spiderman song man! I even had a Rock N Roll comic about the Cure and just dug how they showed how this album got made.

Throughout high school, the Cure and this album in particular, were usually on the radio or stereo at parties I went to and had some great times. Many good nights with some girls that will always hold a special place in my heart.

So, as usual, hate all you want. I like this album and it is your album of the month for July, 2007.

    I haven't ever heard the Cure, but it's hard not to dislike them just because I hate almost all of their fans.

    It's good. I like it a lot. And if you get it in the near future, you get a bonus CD full of their podcast music, some of which is the best stuff they've done in a long time.

    My only exposure to The Cure was 311's (a band which i typically like) annoying-ass cover of "Love Song."

    I'm assuming this is not the best way to be introduced to them.

    EDIT- But man if half their shit is songs about love and crap like that, fuck that noise i'm not bothering with that.
