Now I actually shot some pool (yes I am an awesome pool playa!) and I actually listened to an album I have not heard in a long time - The Cure.
I forgot just how Fucking Awesome they are and yes, any guy that gets arrested for wearing fishnets and a mini skirt to the local shops deserves RESPECT! Let's get into it, shall we?
The album is called The Cure Galore and it's a retrospective of hit singles from 1987 - 1997. The first song 'Why Can't I be You' is a fucking ripper and yes I know all you bitches want to be me. The next songs 'Catch' and 'Just Like Heaven' are really infectious pop songs. we move onto to 'Hot,Hot,Hot' is Ok, not the best version of this song.
Then we move onto in my opinion their greatest song ever 'Lullaby' I absolutely love this song it is eerie, gothic and surreal but such a cool fucking song! Then it's onto 'Fascination Street' it is one of the best tracks on the album. We then move on to the hauntingly beautiful 'Lovesong' a melancholic but ultimately upbeat song, very cool and very The Cure.
Then we move onto 'Pictures of You' one of the best songs on the album, definitely a highlight. Next is 'Never Enough' which is more of a rock feel then the original track, but still way cool. The next song is quite possibly one of the Cure's most amazing hits ever 'Close to Me' this version is seriously smooth, and loses some of that pop feel it had.
'High' is a good song with an awesome beat. We then move onto 'Friday I'm in Love' which is a radio favourite and one of the Cure's most famous songs, sung like only the Cure can sing! 'A Letter to Elise' is a great love song with a cool bass and drum feel.'The 13th' is a bit more experimental with horns and latino beats but it works and why not!
'Mint Car' and ' Strange Attraction' are both OK songs, not the best but it's still the Cure. Moving on to the next song 'Gone!' it's a bit jazzy and we move onto the
final track 'Wrong Number' which is awesome. It is a new track and it is the cure doing what they do best a great mix of techno and rock, a kick ass way to finish a great album.
All up I am giving it 4 and a half shots of Whiskey out of 5, seriously do yourself a favour and go get this album into your collection TODAY!
And until next week -
Peace Out My Bitches!!!
