CD Reviews

It's the CURE!!

"The only difference between this album and the regular version is that this CD has 1 extra track - Pictures Of You.A lot of Cure fans love this song, but i feel it is extremely overrated, and they should have added Fascination Street (from Disintegration) or something from Pornography instead.If you are just getting into the Cure, instead of buying The Greatest Hits collection, go all out and grab "Standing On A Beach" (The singles from 1978-1986) and "Galore" (the singles from 1987-1997). These two collections have a much broader range of styles and songs, and even Robert Smith himself said that the Greatest Hits was a poor representation of what the Cure stood for.However, I suggest the best way to get into the Cure are through the ACTUAL ALBUMS and not the collections. Most Cure fans agree "Faith", "Pornography", "Top", "Disintegration", "Wish" and "Bloodflowers" are among the best, but "Wild Mood Swings" is very under-rated. Heck - if you count them all up, The Cure has around 17 CD's.. (that includes studio albums, a remix album, the 2 single collections, the greatest hits, and live albums)But back to the greatest hits... if you feel you MUST buy it, make sure you get the version with the ACOUSTIC SONGS on the second disc, because they are absolutely amazing. (they were the reason I got the greatest hits in the first place!) Dont worry that this version has 1 extra song.And on a final note, it is dissapointing the greatest hits album doesnt have anything from Pornography, Faith, Bloodflowers and Top, all excellent albums!"
Two minor differences

"Actually, both previous reviews are almost correct.Instead of "The Walk" from the domestic release, this English version has "The Caterpillar" AND it also has an extra track: "Pictures of You." So this import disc has 19 tracks instead of the domestic 18. Ironically, "Pictures of You" is the Cure hit no getting airplay in an oft-repeated digital camera commercial here in the States.Of course, most Cure fans, like myself, will be buying this for the bonus Acoustic disc - but that disc is the same on both versions, hewing to the Domestic track listing. Not worth the extra bucks if you live in the U.S.Cheers!"
