http://www.thecure.comGive a short summary of this band ("Soft folk with a jazzy twist" for instance):
post-punk ennui turned goth pop
post-punk ennui turned goth popRobert Smith and his ever changing line up have been entertaining the doom and gloom set for over 20 years. 27+ million albums later, the rumour is that Smith has decided to call it quits. The Cure may not be touring anymore, but if you're interested in guitar-laden, synthy dance numbers or 11 minute towring opuses about then end of a relationship... pick up an album.
Suggestions for the weak: Standing on a beach (the first singles compilation) or Galore (the 2nd compilation). if you want a "real album", pick up Wish, Disintegration or Bloodflowers. If you like it, work your way backwards and listen to the evolution of what is sure to be a band who will be listed among the Who and Led Zeppelin as the most innovative band of the late 20th century.
My First Goth Band..but still a dark, hypnotic, worthy listen. robert smith's schoolboy-english wail is legendary, adding a vulnerable all-too-human edge to synth-laden darkpop epics.
dark is beautifulI don't know how they keep it up but I'm SOOOO glad they do. Don't miss a concert!
got me through high school.'nuff said.
Spine tingling great!I've heard a lot of the Cure songs...they're wonderful! Some of the videos I've seen on MTV and MuchMusic were really great ... They're just great!

It doesn't matter where you start, you'll finish with the entire catalog. They're that good. No... they're better.
