The Cure has always written some of the most memorable and poignant love songs. What I've always admired about Cure love songs is that they keep an element of realism compared to most love songs. Although many love songs focus on only the good points and how love is supposed to ultimately be perfect, the Cure always seemed to focus on love as it exists more realistically; such as the flaws or unique features you can love about someone, or even loving someone who might be a million miles away from you.
Disintegration is undoubtedly a synth-heavy album, but sometimes its songs benefit from being translated over to the acoustic side of things. This is one of those times. One of their most haunting songs, recorded organically.
There are so many classic songs by The Cure that it can be really difficult to start choosing favorites sometimes. Yet, since they are such an amazing band, it is also difficult not to have a large amount of favorites as well. As I thought about this today, I was easily reminded of one of my favorite albums -- Disintegration. When it comes down to favorites, this album has always had a noteworthy amount of the most memorable songs on it.
