It's a Big, Bright, Beautiful world out there....

"And this is a terrific album. Not The Cure's best, but certainly much better than several people say. The only real problem I have with it is they recorded it 'As Live,' so Robert had to shout more to be heard over the instruments. I think several of the song would sound much better with "Plainsong" like vocals; very quiet and echoed out more. But, the melodies and music are in fine form.

Oh, and leaving several songs off the North American version really hurts it. I've heard all the other songs, such as "This Morning" and "Truth, Goodness, and Beauty," and they're the best songs from these sessions. If anything, they should have been kept, and the throwaway pop tunes could have been left off.

"Lost" is one of the best openers they've had for an album, I think. Right up there with "Plainsong" and "One Hundred Years."

"Alt.End" is a great pop tune. The guitar riff is awesome.

"The End of the World" was a poor choice for a single, I think. It's not that great a song, and one of the weakest from the album.

"Taking Off" was cooler when it was "The Dragonhunter Song," a theme to a French children's show. But it's still a catchy, groovy little tune.

I seem to be one of the few that really likes "The Promise," though I do think it's cooler as the instrumental version "Broken Promise" available on the Bonus DVD. The lyrics are the weak point on the song.

Speaking of the Bonus DVD, it was a bit of a disappointment. I was really hoping for interviews and maybe more footage of them recording the songs. Only three songs, two of them instrumental? Come now, there had to be some cool footage of Robert goofing around and being the lovable eccentric I've seen him to be in interviews. But, it's still neat to throw in every once in a while.

Get this CD if you like latter-day Cure. It's the best since DISINTEGRATION. If ya don't like latter-day Cure, stick with [...]."

""Anniversary", one of the songs on this CD, is without doubt the most poignant rendering of romance remembered and regret felt that I've heard in years. I know it's not kosher maybe to say so, but a tear escapes every time I feel the chords and hear the words. That aside, there's great big secure joy on here, too.

Being new to The Cure in the last two years, I don't come with a lot of baggage about all their stuff, thank god. I simply love the elegance, whimsy, and whiplash verbiage found here on "The Cure". I must buy another copy to get the bonus DVD! and watch these guys do it. Robert Smith is venial if you don't think this one's your thing."
