Poll: The Cure - Best Album?

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

The best Cure album is...

My favourite would have to be the one K-Tel would release. There's not enough room on my cd shelves for any more 'C' bands - so a '20 Golden Greats' would have to suffice :lol:

Come to think of it I own 'nun' Cure cd's just the first 3 albums on vinyl - and they live in a big wooden chest which never gets opened.

I have been thinking long and hard about this one. Yeah, really!
In the end I chose for Disintegration. The record I play most often and with more than a few classics on it...

Had to choose between Seventeen Seconds and Pornography. In the end, 'M' made the difference.

Many (not including me) would argue that it's not a "true" album, but a singles & b-sides collection.

In the light of this I've been giving disintegration some airtime recently, and I do agree that it is a magnificent album. Thanks for reminding me. (Still Faith for me tho. just)

So just seven votes out of 47 for anything released in the past twenty years. Given :von: 's comments on Star Wars recently, another good reason not to put out any new studio recordings. I still hope that Bob and the boys will be back on form next time out, but probably a good example of hope over expectation.
