Amoeba Review

Brad 10/26/2013

I am not sure what I can say about The Cure that has not already been said. Most fans favorite Cure album is Disintegration from 1989. It still might be my favorite album of all time of every album ever released. It was the perfect album to end the 80s and begin the 90s with. It came out when I was still in junior high. And along with Music For The Masses by Depeche Mode it was one of the first albums that I got obsessed with. The Cure released Wish in March of 1992. Wish was the bands Violator. It was their first album of the 90s and probably their last great album. Although they still continue to put out albums every couple years of so. Wish was their best selling album ever and it still remains one of my favorites. I really can't think about 1992 without thinking about this album. It was like what Nevermind was the year before. The album unfortunately featured "Friday I'm In Love." Most Cure fans, who had been Cure fans for years before this album came out, really don't like this song. It just got so overplayed. I still managed to remain a fan of "Love Song" from Disintegration. And that song was overplayed as well. But "Friday I'm In Love" just got to be so annoying. I think it might have damaged the album for some. However this album remains a really fantastic Cure album and features some of their best songs. I listened to this album quite a bit all through 1992 and throughout most of the 90s. I would often just skip over a couple of songs including "Wendy Time." My favorites remain "Apart," "Open," "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea," "Trust," "Cut" & "Too Wish Impossible Things." Apart still breaks my heart every time that I listen to it. It became my official breakup song for many years. And I still get excited every time I get to hear "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea" live at one of their concerts. It was the "Disintegration" of the album. This album also had some amazing b-sides on some of the singles. "Halo," "Scared As You," "The Big Hand" & "This Twilight Garden" are some of their best songs.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1992 blog.
