QuoteCOLUMBIA, Md. – It's the sleeper hit of the year, packing venues from Los Angeles to New York, allowing fans to channel the inner goth of their youth and dazzling with a career-spanning set list of nearly 30 songs.Despite no definitive arrival for The Cure's first release since 2008's "4:13 Dream," the band has included several new tracks in all of its shows.The main set was bookended with newbies – the Pink Floyd-like opener "Alone" and the devastating "Endsong," a bleak musing on aging ("No hopes, no dreams, no world ... I don't belong here anymore") filled with guitar squiggles and crashing cymbals.Smith remains the focal point of The Cure – and how could he not be with his trademark heap of black hair, blur of scarlet lipstick and lacquered eye makeup? His voice, a blend of sad wail and smooth croon, endures as a distinctive, undiminished sound.
