the top

this has always been one of my favorite cure albums. it is so different than all the others. it's not the punk-pop sort of cure album, it's not the base driven sort of cure album, it's something else all its own. a real unique cure sound and feeling that you only get from this one album, and the various demos and b-sides that sprang from it. the energy is tense and urgent, and somehow tongue in cheek at the same time, with a twisted bluesy jazz vibe. imperfection at its finest. hearing the original demos and then how they evolve into the finished product really gives a fan a voyeuristic listen into the mind of robert smith.

Disintegration is the best album ever! BUT...

The Top is raw Robert Smith and an album that should be in any Cure fanatic's library. My personal favorites are Shake Dog Shake and Give Me It, but Wailing Wall, Dressing Up, and Piggy in the Mirror are outstanding. I was thrilled to see this Deluxe version and that it included Happy the Man. I'd be afraid to listen to this album under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
