I can't rate them, it's far to difficult. The best album is definitely Pornography 10/10 and the worst is Wild Mood Swings 3/10.

Wow, there are so many contrasting views on this topic!

I can't believe fans are giving ratings like 3 out of 10. that's horrible.

The self-titled album rocks! So many people don't seem to like it at all. What's not to like about it?  Every song is a winner! :smth020

I hope fans like the new album, I know I will! Don't just hate it because it doesn't sound like 'Disintegration'.


Disintegration 10

These Days...

THE TOP  (Becouse of these new developments I'm totally drawn to most intimate expiriences of this album. This album really encapsulates Bob's creativity at the moment between cult oddity and pop stardom)  10\10



Great decision Janko!

My list:

One      - Faith (Masterpiece IMO)
Two      - The Top
Three    - Pornography
Four     - The Head On The Door
Five     - Wish
Six      - Disintegration
Seven    - Japanese Whispers
Eight    - Three Imaginary Boys
Nine     - Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
Ten      - Seventeen Seconds
Eleven   - Bloodflower
Twelve   - The Cure
Thirteen - Wild Mood Swings
"Thick As Shit"

But the top ten tend to change around based on what I feel and current tastes. But everyone has their list and reasons for it.  No one is wrong here.

I totally agree with you about the self titled Cure album.  It's their best work as a whole since Wish.  I believe that should have been proper follow up instead of Wild Mood Swings.  There's so many good songs on it too; Taking Off, End Of The World, alt.end, Before Three, Lost, Never and Labyrinth. Truly their best in ages.

Yes!! It's a great album. I pump up Lost and Labyrinth so loud (I would love to see those songs live). I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that it is a wonderful record.  :smth023

I wished that they included the extra tracks on there. Like 'Fake', 'This Morning', 'Truth, Beauty & Goodness', Why Can't I Be Me' etc. But oh well. I will just have to buy the singles from Ebay to get those B-Sides because apparently they are pretty good.

I think it's interesting that the majority of cure fans dislike the Wild Mood Swings album so much... it's not my favorite either because it has so many like weird jazzy type songs (or however you would describe them), but actually half the songs are really really good.  Like WANT i'm sure everyone would agree doesn't even fit on the album because it's so good but there are a lot of other good ones like This Is a Lie, Jupiter Crash, Numb, Treasure, Bare, Trap.

I agree. I find it to be an enjoyable album with a lot of variation. They have never done a bad album, but it seems as though many fans want to compare the non-classic albums (eg. Wild Mood Swings) to classic albums (eg. Disintegration). And this is really not fair on the band. There are happy sides of the Cure and gloomy sides too. We should embrace them all, afterall Robert is still around smiling and Ian Curtis (RIP)... well you know the rest. And sometimes the jazzy tunes can be fun, Icing Sugar is a cool song from Kiss Me, and your right about Wild Mood Swings, there really isn't a bad song on the album. I always find myself singing the whole album when I put it on, especially Gone!. If any other band had put it out we would have probably called it a classic?

This is all true. Actually in the beginning of my Cure obsession Wild Mood Swings was one of my fav albums cause i think i hadn't gotten the feel for the older stuff yet.
