When I was 13 years old I got my hands on a dubbed cassette version of The Cure’s “Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me” album. Within a week I had a Cure poster on my bedroom wall and was well on my way to acquiring all of their albums. My wife recalls with some distaste the giant Robert Smith poster that hung on my wall in college. Now, 21 years later, they are still my favorite band.
I picked up their new album 4:13 Dream a few days ago and have been very pleased with it. I was fully expecting to be disappointed, but Robert and the boys have restored my faith in The Cure.
Check out “Underneath the Stars” – my favorite track from the new album:
