Quote from: tanyasmith on April 18, 2017, 02:01:39I love How Beautiful You Are, A Thousand Hours, Catch, The Perfect Girl...Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me ties for my favorite Cure album with Wish and Disintegration. I REALLY love Out of This World. I saw them perform it live on tour this last round and was struck by it. I don't know if that song has gotten the credit it deserves. It sounds like Nick Drake meets Pink Floyd. INCREDIBLE! See The Cure performing that song at the Wembley from this last December at my youtube channel, Tanya's Ethereal Footsteps. Here's a video of snippets of Robert speaking and some of the best moments captured from 9 shows last year:

Quote...when I heard it in 1987, 'Just Like Heaven' seemed to come almost out of nowhere. It was a strange, silvery, unusual song, with an unusual but absolutely compelling singer.
QuoteGwen Ihnat: The Cure didn't exactly make a U-turn in 1987 with Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, but it was a hell of a reroute. The iconically mopey band, led by head goth/grump Robert Smith, all of a sudden had a cheerful horn section in "Why Can't I Be You?" that threaded throughout the double album. And while its poppiness--and the smash success of "Just Like Heaven"--helped Kiss Me become The Cure's first Top 40 record in the U.S., it also became the first Cure record I never bought.
Quote from: isamu on December 14, 2008, 11:32:47I am wondering if anyone here considers Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me to be head and shoulders better and above the rest of the albums, and is their favorite Cure record of all time?
