I like and I always have loved THE CURE, but having heard so many concerts it lead me to think that the actual The Cure sound is definitely not the best. In my opinion, it's just too "rock". I definitely stay with the "new wave" sound from 1985-1987.

What do you think about?

Looks good that so far, we appreciate the Wish sound cos I think that it is where Old Bob is leading us again  :D

For me it is 17 Seconds/Faith/Pornography.  Dark and dreary.  Perfect.

The "OUR GENERATION" band (that is: Robert-Simon-Jason-Roger-Perry)

WAS MOST ELABORATE LINE-UP EVER!!!

This line up had best defined sound, without many variations and concluding with 'Trilogy'  it reached an amazing level of concrete wall of blasting sound which then masterfully allowed Robert to develop his voice into best ever (even though it fell at least half a note since ...ehm... 'Lovecats')...

Roger and Perry have yet to be thanked for that. Praised.

As you can see now - there are some voice problems...  :-D
Fatter than Bob, balder than Porl, as sober as Simon, as amusing as Jason

I love the sound of the Wish era. The best line-up I think. They've reached a great quality of performance with this tour, just listen the Show and Paris albums.
Although the Disintegration era was great, they've reached a higher level during the Wish era: the drumming was more intense (open, cut), Porl was terrific (FTEOTDGS) and the versatility of Perry and Porl aternating between keyboards and guitar gave more flexibility to the band's sound during live shows.

A little known fact... Robert played all the guitar parts on the album version of From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, even the solo. You can read about it here:

But yes, there is something very special about Wish to me. I'm sure some of it has to do with the fact that it was when I discovered the band, but they were a real powerhouse back then. With Porl back, they're getting close again.

Hey! Thanks Caley. I didn't knew about that!  :-D  You're right, right now they're getting close  to the sound back then. I'm really happy because of that!!!!

well for me, the best sound and the peak in the cure career has always been the disintegration era!!
specially the european tour, when they played many different songs fromall the eras jus to grow up till those marvelous shows in wembley

about the album i remember the first song i listened from this album was pictures of you walking on the streets near my house (i had just received the cassette version from the postal office) i remember i cried when i listened to it, i didnt understand the reason of the change of sound between "kiss me kiss me kiss me and this new album" , it sounded very strange and darkie, i thought the cure were copying the goths bands, that become very popular in peru by then! but later i notice it was really different it always has this CURE SOUND that you can find on any album. i said i cried because that song was beautifull and when ou listen something like pictures of you for the first time yo have to be shocked, i felt proud, but to be honest for a few days i feel really strange and worried that this new album would become as popular as the kiss me kiss me kiss me album. at least it was consider so dark by the local record company that it was not released here in peru! ha!!

the concept of disintegation is so coherent and complex that together with that great new sound by then i think its the best cure sound forever and ever and ever

anyway i still dream the cure would make a better album in the near future!!
