The live tracks on this are the exact same as those that appear on Entreat, so if you have that album don't bother with this. But if you can't find Entreat this might be worth getting. The live version of Prayers for Rain is superior to the studio album track.
A must have for any cure fan

"for years i have passed over this disc because it offered no unreleased b-sides. as the years have passed, my rabidity of being a cure fan has grown to such an extreme that i have become a completist and must own everything. passing up this CD all of those times is something i now regret, because to hear the performance of last dance, fascination street, prayers for rain and such a performance of disintegration live could leave a fan speechless. this was one hell of a performance (especially disintegration) and i now envy anyone who was at that concert..highly recommended for any cure fan to not pass up simply because it has no unreleased material."
Ignore the single. Listen to the B-Sides

"The B-Sides are the only reason I bought this single. They're live renditions of DISINTEGRATION tunes from the '89 Wembley performances, and they're amazing. I really hope Robert finally fulfills his promise of releasing a full show from that era sometime within my lifetime.
The version of "Disintegration" included is the best performance of the song I've ever heard. Starting off with a random guitar riff, and exploding into a quicker, stronger version of the song, it's amazing to listen to with headphones on. "Fascination Street" is always a ROCKING live tune. I'm glad they included "Last Dance" and "Prayers For Rain" as well, since they're not as well-known as other songs from the album.
One word of warning, there's a two second glitch in the middle of "Last Dance." I've looked into it, and it's apparently in quite a few copies of the US Pictures of You single. It's nothing big, and certainly doesn't take away from the killer performances available on the disc.
Trust me, if you want to hear The Cure at the top of their live game, buy this. It's short and sweet."
