Cure albums: first word you think of.. . .
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:45:15 »
The game's simple; I'm going to list all of the Cure albums. All you have to do is list the first word that comes to your head when you see the name of the album (how the album resonates with you)
I'll start!

Three Imaginary Boys: brittle

Seventeen Seconds: fog

Faith: foggier

Pornography: dark
 
The Top: horror

Head on the Door: optimism

Kiss me Kiss me Kiss me: party

Disintegration: rain

Wish: epic

Wild Mood Swings: unfortunate (sorry!)

Bloodflowers: nostalgic

The Cure: grand (i love this album, near perfect sound scapes)

4:13 Dream: off

Well, a bit...
Looking back, to me it feels the Cure did "update" their "typical" sound for this album. Robert talked a lot about "Disintegration" at the time - even though "Bloodflowers" sounds quite different...
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

Bloodflowers also did that thing in Disintegration where the same guitar solo line was reused in other songs ie. Closedown and Untitled, Last Day Of Summer and Where the birds always sing

Hey, Balboa! I'm guessing Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss me reminds you of the beach then?

It's a perfect day for letting go
For setting fire to bridges, boats

It's a perfect day for making out
To wake up with a smile without a doubt
To burst, grin, giggle, bliss, skip, jump and sing and shout
Let's get happy!

Saw TC live, Hammersmith Apollo, 21/12/14
