The Cure
After the missteps of Wild Mood Swings and Bloodflowers, Robert Smith and company return with their best disc in over a decade. As usual, there’s plenty of despair but things aren’t all that bad, with Smith drawing from the best eras of The Cure catalogue. “The End of the World” recalls the romanticism of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me; “Before Three” belongs on Wish and “Lost” represents the new Smith, emotive and direct. Where he offered no hope before, Smith now balances his inner demons with new-found optimism.
