Quote from: splitmilk34 on April 17, 2007, 14:09:09Morrissey has AGED better than Robert, but his music is unlistenable drivel.
Quote from: Janko on April 17, 2007, 22:53:55I LIKE THEM BOTH ALMOST EQUALLY AND I HOPE THEY WILL WORK UNTIL THEY DIE!
Quote from: Janko on April 17, 2007, 22:53:55AND IT IS INTERESTIG HOW SLOWLY BUT SURELY BOTH MORRISSEY AND MARK E. SMITH BECAME BRITISH ICONS WHILE ROBERT STILL DOESNT GET THE MENTION...
Quote from: Bloodflower on April 18, 2007, 06:09:15Upon Robert's death, everything will be reevaluated. My life will be reevaluated....
Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 09:22:12Now, take a look at Morrissey. He came back with a bang after seven years of silence. He put out two great albums within two years (not counting a live album and a live dvd). He did some incredible live shows and is still touring, and his shows are always a memorable experience. The audience is alive and is celebrating him, while the Cure audience seems to be mostly bored. Morrissey still has that magic that RS lost a long time ago.
Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 09:22:12I just hope that RS will never take off his shirt to throw it into the audience, that's the last ting I want to see *shudder*.
Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 09:22:12 I honestly don't think that The Cure will ever be able to make a truly outstanding album that makes people go "Wow!".
Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 09:22:12I think that RS used to be a British Icon as well, but he is fading away and is slowly becoming an embarrasment to Britain. I mean, he looks like a silly clown and his music becomes more and more boring and uninspired. Not to mention that RS as a person doesn't have any charisma left whatsoever. Maybe that's what you get for drug abuse: To shine bright and then burn out.
Quote from: splitmilk34 on April 18, 2007, 15:05:05I don't think they need to make another life altering record ...
Quoteand can you honestly tell me that the last Cure album, along with all of the BSides, didn't have any interesting moments? In my opinion, songs like Lost, Going Nowhere, The Promise, This Morning, Why Can't I Be Me?, and alt.end are among some of the better Cure songs.

Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 19:46:41The last album was average at best.
Quote from: Oso Blanco on April 18, 2007, 19:46:41Not only was the music completely spiritless, but the lyrics were meaningless as well. Think about Morrissey as you wish, you don't HAVE to like him. But at least still he has something to say. RS on the other hand is putting the new album on hold because of a writers blockade! If he has nothing to say, why doesn't he make it an instrumental album? Could be a much better album ... at least the last album would have been a lot better without his vocals.
Quote from: rjl on April 18, 2007, 20:33:53Tangentally related to Lol, I always thought that it would be really cool for a handful of the "ex-Cure's" to work together, even if just to play drawn-out live instrumentals. Their time in the Cure has certainly given them enough practice, and allowed them to develop and pick up all sorts of neat tricks.
Quote from: rjl on April 18, 2007, 20:33:53Although, now that Porl is back in the Cure, that idea has dropped a few notches on the "cool-o-meter".
Quote from: rjl on April 18, 2007, 20:33:53It's still up there with "Slash, Duff & Izzy re-record 'Appetite for Destruction' with Barry Gibb", although for entirely different reasons.
