The 59' Sound reminds me of early cure material. Boys Don't Cry, Killing An Arab, etc. Anyone like the Cure here?

New stuff is not great - but their old stuff is definately worth listening to - very punkish.

I must admit that I liked their last record as well. The self-titled one. But the newest songs I heard suck.

And one more old thread.

When I first heard The '59 Sound, I asked a friend if I was crazy or if it sounded like The Cure.

I grew up on The Cure. I would have called them my favorite band up until a couple years ago. I would still drop anything to see them in concert.

A brilliant singles band...never thought much of their albums apart from Three Imaginary Boys (aka Boys Don't Cry) Pornography and Head on the Door...although the new album has it's moments.

Only ever saw them once way back in 1979 when they opened up for Siouxsie and the Banshees.Due to two of the Banshees leaviing the band several dates into the tour Robert Smith played guitar for both bands

I've always told myself I'd give the Cure a try, but still haven't really got around to it. What albums would people recommend- which ones sound like Gaslight? Just Disintegration, Three Imaginary Boys, Pornography and Head on the Door? What's the best starting point?

none of them sound like Gaslight bro. just listen to some of their singles, like "Boys Don't Cry," "Just Like Heaven," "Friday I'm In Love," "Love Song," "Pictures of You," and of course "A Letter to Elise"

haha

personally, i dont hear the cure in tga, either. but its way more flattering than the killers comparisons people keep trying to make. i really dont understand that, theyre just so pretentious and nowhere near as good. but anyways...i say start with disintegration. thats also the album alex r. mentions in like every interview ive seen. that or maybe pornography, even the singles collections are pretty good.

i never noticed it til they covered A Letter to Elise and Alex R mentioned that album, but OWL and Miles Davis have pretty big Cure influences. a lot of Alex R's parts on every song do too, like on the verses of '59, or his main part on Here's Looking

I might get slated for it on here but I'm also a massive Killers fan, and I know their guitarist Dave Keuning is a huge Cure fan, but apparently he (said in an interview, unlike some Cure fans, he) 'doesn't eat bats', which I suppose is what you mean by pretentious, but I found it funny!

PostSubject: Re: The Cure   Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:08 am

anyone else hear about this??

a deluxe version of "disintegration," (which, by the way, is totally the best cure album- and it comes out right before my bday!)


from thecure.com:



The Cure - Disintegration... THE PUFF...



Deluxe Edition - Polydor/Universal

Date : 24th May 2010



Three-Disc Deluxe Edition Produced & Compiled by Robert Smith, Including a Remastered Version of the Original Album, plus Unreleased Songs, Demos, Out-takes and Live Performances.



The Cure’s eighth studio album, released in 1989, is the dark tour de force Disintegration.




Following on from 1987's outstanding Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me release, and spurred by the hits “Lullaby”, “Fascination Street“, “Lovesong” and “Pictures Of You”, the album quickly became the group’s most successful yet, with sales topping more than 3 million, as the band sold out stadiums and arenas around the world.



Polydor/Universal reissues this landmark album, remastering the original, adding a disc of unreleased out-takes and demos, plus a third disc that contains a live performance of the entire album recorded in 1989 over 3 nights at Wembley Arena, London, the European climax of the The Cure's global ‘Prayer Tour‘. This Deluxe Edition comes with a 20 page booklet containing previously unseen pictures and art, as well as lyrics and an in depth overview of the period by the band's founder Robert Smith.



Robert Smith compiled, produced, and supervised the mastering of this three-disc collection, which covers the evolution of Disintegration, from demos and rehearsals to studio and stage. The first disc contains newly remastered versions of the album’s original 12 tracks.



Gathering 20 unreleased tracks, the second disc trawls through Smith’s home recordings to find early instrumental demos of fan favourites “Pictures Of You”, “Prayers For Rain” and “Fascination Street.” The Cure can be heard rehearsing and arranging various instrumental versions, including ”Homesick”, “Closedown” and “The Same Deep Water As You”, as well as playing studio out-takes of several other tracks, including “Plainsong”. The disc also contains four unreleased songs: “Noheart”, “Esten”, “Delirious Night” and a cover of Judy Collins’ “Pirate Ships”, the latter a solo performance by Smith that was recorded for, but ultimately not included on, Rubáiyát, a 1990 album celebrating Elektra Records’ 40th anniversary.



For the final disc, Smith remixes and expands Entreat, a live album recorded in 1989 at Wembley Arena. Entreat Plus combines the original’s eight tracks, remixed with the four 'missing' songs to create a complete contemporary live version of Disintegration.



Comments Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai: “Disintegration by The Cure is one of the greatest records of all time. It has the feel that only a tiny amount of albums have, that it exists completely in its own universe, immune to context or fashion. I literally cannot imagine the band members in a room playing these songs for the first time, its as if they've always been there. From stunning opener “Plainsong” through to “Untitled”, it is unrelentingly beautiful and achingly sad. Disintegration is a simply wonderful record.”
