    I've heard of the rollins band and iggy pop opening for the cure,but then again that was a festival.




    it's not a very pro The Cure so you might wanna skip it.

    "Wild Mood Swings" is the underdog (or is it black sheep?) album, early in my cure career that was one of the first ones I bought on my own so it just kinda stuck with me. And in the great tradition of the cure having epic album openers, this ones no different:

    Ha! and I thought I only noticed those epic openers. One of my favorites would be "Open" from the Wish record. And I use to love it back in the day when they would always open a gig with "Shake Dog Shake"

    my top 5 album openers

    5. 10:15 Saturday Night – Three Imaginary Boys
    4. I’m Cold – Standing on the Beach (B-sides)
    3. The Kiss – Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
    2. Open – Wish
    1. Plainsong – Disintegration

    Plainsong is srsly one of the best album openers of all time.

    Well if we're going to do this, then why stop at 5? For their full length releases:

    1. One Hundred Years - Pornography
    2. In Between Days - The Head on the Door
    3. Shake Dog Shake - The Top
    4. Plainsong - Disintegration
    5. The Kiss - Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
    6. Want - Wild Mood Swings
    7. 10:15 Saturday Night - Three Imaginary Boys
    8. Open - Wish
    9. The Holy Hour - Faith
    10. Out of This World - Bloodflowers
    11. A Reflection - Seventeen Seconds
    12. Underneath the Stars - 4:13 Dream
    13. Lost - The Cure

    Edited: what's nuts is that only one of those (Lost) isn't a great song.

    And live videos of my top three:

    First UK live TV performance - they were supposed to do something poppy (I think "Let's Go to Bed"?) and played One Hundred Years instead.


    Top of the Pops:


    In Orange (short hair Robert!!)



    Edited: I know Top of the Pops is lip synched but I picked it for Robert's adorable and awkward dancing

    I propose that Salah be granted the ability to edit any and all thread titles. It will make the board more visually appealing during this grim monochrome period.

    This type of thing is one of the reasons why I like them so much.

    gaa theres too much to comment on!

    As far as album openers go, this is the one to beat (next to Plainsong of course). The jam intro is out of control with those psychedelic guitars. And the lyrics....one of my favorites. Its just so ANGRY and passionate. I get chills when Robert screams
    Get your fucking voice out of my head!

    KM KM KM has become my favorite cure album.

    Weird, just listening to that actually. It's funny to hear him talk about the time around making Kiss Me... as he's said it was one of the happiest experiences he's had, because it's such an angry record. It's so much more full of venom collectively than what he's done before or since.

    All I Want is such a great fucking track off that record. The live version reminds me of Siamese Twins done live as they both transcend into these massive, almost anthemic love songs and it throws me off every time.

    are you kidding? Happy? Could have fooled me. Everything you say about the album is true and its why I love it, plus its mixed in with some awesome catchier pop tracks too.

    Funny, All I Want is my favorite on the album next to The Kiss and Torture. Would kill to see it live, there have been points where I cant even finish cuz it gets me feeling....emotional.

    They are too good. I want to see them at a headlining show so I can get three hours of live Cure at a time.

    On this tour of theirs that I have mapped out in my head, ill see them at Bonnaroo where they will headline then catch the SF show and head down to LA for that show as well. Need to start a cure piggy bank.

    You're just three sick holes that run like sores...

    I had 3rd row for the San Diego show for this tour. They all wore white tees and I remember The Glove & Jimi Hendrix being played very loud as the pre-warm up music. Geez!! I wished I was a teenager again still working at the record shop that allowed us to pull tickets from Ticketmaster!

    At Coachella 2004, I was laying right near the video game tent (Y'all remember the air conditioned video game tent?) listening to Air and some dude came directly up to me and asked if I wanted to buy a backstage wristband. I asked how much, and he responded $10. I was skeptical, but he let me put the wristband on and then walked me backstage before I paid him. I got right up onto the main stage and stayed in the wings for The Cure's set. They were my favorite band at the time, and it was pretty goddamn incredible to see them for the first time on the same stage where they were performing.

    In fact, I don't think I've ever been further than 50 yards from the stage all the times I've seen them.

    so I confess that "Bloodflowers" is probably the album I know least. Listened to it only a few times, im giving it a thorough listen now and I find it to be so....generic compared to their other stuff. It doesnt pop out for me, but maybe I need to give it more time

    It's like a Cure by numbers album. They don't really do anything surprising or very worthwhile on it. Not bad, but kinda blah.

    I got Disintegration on vinyl tonight and gave it a spin. What a spectacular album.
