The Cure

Originally a postpunk outfit with gothic leanings, The Cure evolved into one of the most creatively satisfying groups to come of age in the 1980s. From dark dirges to dreamy pop, the music of their first two decades is adventurous, hypnotic, and rich with texture. Formed in 1976 by Robert Smith and schoolmates Michael Dempsey (bass) and Laurence Tolhurst (drums), the band was signed by Fiction Records on the strength of a demo recording of "Killing An Arab." By 1989, the year they released their stateside breakthrough, Disintegration, The Cure were playing stadium tours on both sides of the Atlantic. The intervening years witnessed such underground milestones as "Boys Don't Cry," "Close To Me," and "Just Like Heaven."

Their landmark 1987 double album broke both creative and commercial ground, cracking the Billboard Top 40. Features the hits "Just Like Heaven" and "Why Can't I Be You?" Bonus disc gathers 18 previously unreleased tracks, including studio demos of "Hot Hot Hot!!!" and "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep," and six live bootlegs.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote The Cure: Robert Smith (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Porl Thompson (guitar, saxophone, keyboards); Laurence Tolhurst (keyboards); Simon Gallup (bass guitar); Boris Williams (drums); Roger O'Donnell.
Muze PNote This hefty double album often sounds more like a compilation than a coherent whole, with musical ideas bouncing frantically back and forth. Nevertheless, in typical Cure style, KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME successfully combines catchy pop with bitter despair. Through 17 immensely sensual songs, Robert Smith is at his most poetic ("strange as angels, dancing in the deepest ocean, twisting in the water, you're just like a dream") and vitriolic ("get your fucking voice out of my head...I never wanted any of this, I wish you were dead"). The joyous pop of "Just Like Heaven" and "The Perfect Girl" still delights, and the frisson provided by "Shiver And Shake" reinforces the physical nature of this collection.

Producer: Dave Allen; Robert Smith

Engineer: Dave Allen

Professional Reviews

Uncut (p.102)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Glossy, even sexy, here the excesses of that decade finally caught up with Smith, which he twisted into stunning pop..."

Alternative Press (p.200)
- "[With] the heartfelt 'Just Like Heaven,' one of the classic alt-rock singles of the 1980s."

Magnet (p.106)
- "Smith pens the prettiest pop, unleashes seven minutes of sitar-driven stonerdom, uses accordions to punctuate Parisian travelogues, plays with psychedelic Hendrixian guitar textures and -- as always -- lets bassist Simon Gallup have all the best riffs and melodies."

CMJ (1/5/04, p.20)
- Ranked #3 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1987"
