Dig that bass in Strum! Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic.

I hope at some point we get recordings of these songs without the crackles and pops, but for now, this is great. Thanks a lot, Scribbs.

EDIT: Just played around with a playlist of the 2004 sessions in iTunes.

Lost
Before Three
Truth Goodness And Beauty
The End of the World
Strum
Please Come Home
Anniversary
A Boy I Never Knew
Labyrinth
Your God is Fear
This Morning
The Promise

That would have made the best album since Disintegration, you ask me. Dammit Robert, why can't you tracklist an album anymore?
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

no no, you should never convert something lossy to flac: once it's mp3s then it's mp3s. it doesn't magically turn to lossless anymore. mp3s converted to flac is the worst thing you could do because it would be fake lossless.

i think the question here is if these were originally made available in lossless or not. 
so what's the source?

Yes, so true... :)

All of these are very beautiful, I especially love Please Come Home... wow, what an incredible track. It reminds me of Bloodflowers at certain points.

sorry DJ but i just noticed the links you've put up also link to a lot of officially released cure material (such as regular album tracks) in mp3s.

this is unrelated to the demos of course but sorry such links to officially released material are not ok here. :!:
if something is available officially, people should support the band and go buy themselves a copy.

Yeah nice list!  :smth023
Although I'd take off 'Your God Is Fear' and add 'Fake' and 'Going Nowhere'.

I agree that Fake and Going Nowhere should be a part of the album.  It's funny how just a few changes can totally give the album a completely different vibe.  And think about some of the setlists that would have come from such an album.  Damn you Robert!

Yeah!

I downloaded this couple of days ago (when did this leak anyway?!) and Ilove it!
My files have plenty of static but it's still listenable!
As far as I know this was always MP3 file.

Great songs!
I thought this is gonna be THE REALLY DARK AND BROODING STUFF because the Robert said they canned the really dark songs from 2004 album. But these two (Strum and Please come home) are not that bleak. Strum is rather poppy...

Sorry but mp3 material is NOT allowed on Curefans.com, unless is a material shared by The Cure directly (as, for instance, "love will tear us apart" and etc..)

I was talking to some staff members and we will do an exception here as it seems these songs are currently only available as mp3.

About exploding boy's complain for not crediting him (?) for these songs, I understand these have been floating around in very small circles for a while.  (just look at the date it was created...all the way back in March).

exploding boy,
i do remember various kind of issues we've had with you sometimes:

- the file had been posted here by somebody who has clearly asked everyone not to post it anywhere else by that time, but you've posted it in your blog nevertheless

- the file had been shared here in lossless (flac) and the member who posted has asked everyone not to convert to mp3s, but you have nevertheless put it in your blog in mp3s

- also, we cannot have links to blogs that share mp3s and especially not to blogs that share officially released material. so please do not advertise such blogs here. especially, sharing officially released material is not ok, everyone who calls themselves a fan should go and buy the official releases instead. it's not a question of  "i just want to share music with everybody", it's a question of respecting the band that made the music.


i'm not entirely sure what you mean by "no name sources": if you ever download something from here, you can always see which member originally posted it. i don't think that kind of source is a "no name source"(?). but perhaps i misunderstood you there.
in general i think it is good manners to credit the sources, not just grab the stuff and go. that's good manners.
there are cases when crediting the source is easy: like if someone uploads a master recording. like david said above, in cases like these demos it's more difficult because it's nobody's master copy. stuff that has been floating around for long and nobody knows where it originated. who to credit then?
(and no offense but you have also grabbed stuff from this forum and shared it on your blog and have not credited the original uploader either. like that mexico incident you mentioned if i'm not mistaken.
 
anyway, next time, let us credit the sources - when we can/when we know them.)

ps. and what comes to the thread here, at least i asked for the source from the original thread starter but if you see the thread above  he/she said "i swore not to tell" the source. how to know when people say that because they were really asked to say so or because they just want to cover their tracks? i'm not implying it was either way, just saying that for the rest of us it's impossible to know at that time.
