A Smiffs cover isn't the best look for a The Cure fan ;o)

I hear you.
I get a lot of stick from the Team WMS people about it.
It's truly dreadful. It's the only The Cure record I never bought. Yet I was gifted the CD & the double vinyl from family/ friends who knew i didn't have it. The vinyl's never been opened in 25 years.
I must admit I have warmed to some of the live versions since. Want is quite epic compared the studio effort. Especially now Reeves is there.

It's actually the last Cure album I bought. I figured that since I loved everything from Three Imaginary Boys through Wish, what could possibly go wrong.

my first exposure to the cure was close to me (that was the big song when i was old enough to be exposed to them). a song which i really, really, REALLY dislike to this day.

thankfully i gave the rest of the album a listen, because it has my all-time fave cure track on it.

that is actually probably a pretty fair representation of what i would look like, if i did dance. which i don't. for obvious reasons.

House of Dolls was where they lost me. It just didn't grab me like the other stuff did. A friend of mine always said GLJ were "too glam for their own good." I thought glam was fine, but they took themselves too seriously. You need a sense of humor about yourself if you're gonna do glam.

It sounded awkward to me. Been a long time, though, so I should listen to it again. I like to revisit things, just in case my tastes have changed.

i'm not sure it flowed as an entire *album* if we're being completely honest. but there were some stellar tracks on it, some of my favourites from them.

I've found, in general, that songs that I thought were meh for decades suddenly become quite good.
