B+ album; people are being a little hard on this one
Violet Light | Washington, USA | 04/21/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"OK so if you are a die-hard Robert Smith & Co. fan hung up on the nostalgia of classic, unadulterated Cure tunes, then it's true - you probably won't appreciate this album. Especially if you aren't an industrial/goth fan. You'll hate this album as much as you might hate "New Wave Goes to Hell" - another goth cover album a lot of people accuse of "perverting" everybody's favorite 80s hits. Whatever. THAT being said, if you enjoy losing yourself every now and then in a little Laether Strip, Shroud, Skinny Puppy, Kill Switch...Klick, Christian Death, what have you AND you can approach with an open mind the subject of other bands daring to manipulate the Cure's genius - you'll love it. Sure, the vocalists don't sound like Robert Smith, they AREN'T Robert Smith. And I don't think they're trying to be. This is not an endeavor to "improve" the Cure - just an attempt to pay tribute to them and to have a little fun. I adore this album, it offers up exciting new twists on some classics - most have a darker edge and the addition of some fierce dance beats uncharacteristic of the Cure, but nevertheless exhilarating."

"I adore The Cure. They are great live or in the studio. Their songs have a uniqueness that cannot be heard in any other music. This tribute cheapens The Cure. It sounds nothing like them. It's not a type of music I enjoy. However, you must be your own judge. If you are a Cure fan, listen to some of these samples and ask yourself if they are at all like the original. I don't see how it would be possible for any true Cure fan to own this."
An interesting mix...

"The " Lullabye " cover by Leatherstrip is the best { not better than the original has another reviewer suggested }; perfection would have been achieved by inserting Robert Smith's voive instead of the Leatherstip vocalist, who doesn't have much range.Nosferatu's cover of " 100 years " is also exceptional,the second best cover here, but with the best vocals going to Nosferatu frontman Dominic LeVay! Personally, I too think people expected a bit too much mch from a Cleopatra tribute album!Elecrtic Hellfire make their obvius contractual obligation to appear on EVRY SINGLE tribute/complilation album Cleopatra has EVER made with " Killing an Arab " which is well done musically, but the vocals are just too cartoonish and " I wanna be evil "; lacking the elegance to cover a Cure song. I at first despised Razed in Black's cover of Disintergration { and I'm an electronic muscian! } but it's grown on me a little { still not big on the vocals }; it IS an original approcah to the song. { doesn't make me forget the original }. I also like Death Lies Bleeding's industrial/metal approcah to " A Forest " with the creey whispering vocals; it's a uniuqe appoarch to a song too often covered in the goth/industrial underground."
