    They are playing two sold out shows in Chicsgo, still a big draw here.

    My brother saw them Thursday in California and was blown away by both quantity & quality...he couldn't believe how good Robert Smith's voice still is

    Saw that show as well. We got 4 songs added to the tour that hadn't been played (Primary, Kyoto Song, Cold (!!) and Dressing Up).. plus it was awesome to hear Last Dance and Burn live.

    @Cruiser what do you have? The Cure nerds will tell you what else you need. The Join The Dots 4CD box set is excellent. Chock full of great b-sides & rarities

    Just saw Tolhurst has a book coming out in October about his 13 years with the band.

    Johnny Marr has a book coming out too. Good times for fans of 80s UK sounds.

    I need to jam The Smiths.

    And both The Cure and The Twilight Sad need to drop some new jamz. Twilight Sad are working on new stuff, so that'll probably be next year but COME ON ROBERT SMITH WE NEED YOU

  • I agree. It's high time the promised 'dark' album comes out along with the remaster of Wish

    His tears at 3:10..

  • That new song is really good. A lot darker than the stuff on the last album. He really does cry in that live video. This bodes well for new material. Can't wait to see them in November

  • so then I'm gonna resurrect this thread and ask if anyone's read the autobiography of Lol Tolhurst and can recommend it?

    I saw them play in Amsterdam in November at the Ziggo Dome. Was a great show, especially loved watching the Twilight Sad open. They are one of my favourite of the "new" bands (i..e within the last decade) and I'm glad I finally got to see them live. The Cure was great as usual, but out of the 3 times I've seen them previously this was probably my least favourite performance. However, they absolutely slayed 100 Years and Other Voices.

    Robert Smith confirmed a couple of months back that the Wish remaster is finally complete. Hopefully a release date is announced soon. And hopefully we finally get a proper release of the Lost Wishes tracks !

    Well they made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as did Roxy Music).

  • Pretty boring list IMO, no surprises and honestly seems like something a robot would put together based on what the popular consesus regarding their albums was. Same guy has a top 10 Cure songs ranking that is even worse. "Friday I'm in Love" as the 4th best all time Cure song ???🤮🤮🤮

    I won't bother writing out a full list but will just say that Disintegration is their best, follwed by either Bloodflowers or Faith. Wild Mood Swings is the most underrated and Head on the Door the most overrated.
