  • This album lends itself very well to multiple listens. This is The Cure's wildest, messiest, most psychedelic album. Not one of their best, but there's a lot of brilliant stuff happening on this record. [3]

  • My favourite album <3
  • Whoa, I just heard this album for the first time! Quite enjoyable :-D
  • hmm yes I see your point. Those three you mentioned are among their best, as well as Pornography and Faith (IMO).. I guess I love this album because whenever I feel in a strange mood I can relate so well to the whole of it. Robert's a genious for having created all those wonderful albums.
