It's hard to believe that the Cure could release an album even more sparse than Three Imaginary Boys, but here's the proof. The lineup change that saw funkstery bassist Michael Dempsey squeezed out in favor of the more specific playing of (eventually the longest serving member outside Robert Smith) Simon Gallup, and the addition of keyboardist Mathieu Hartley resulted in the band becoming more rigid in sound, and more disciplined in attitude. While it is not the study in loss that Faith would become, or the descent into madness of Pornography, it is a perfect precursor to those collections. In a sense, Seventeen Seconds is the beginning of a trilogy of sorts, the emptiness that leads to the questioning and eventual madness of the subsequent work. Mostly forgotten outside of the unforgettable single "A Forest," Seventeen Seconds is an even, subtle work that grows on the listener over time. Sure, the Cure did better work, but for a new lineup and a newfound sense of independence, Robert Smith already shows that he knows what he's doing. From short instrumental pieces to robotic pop, Seventeen Seconds is where the Cure shed all the outside input and became their own band. © Chris True /TiVo

Minimal e fredda in superficie, la musica dei Cure ha un che di Alice nel paese delle meraviglie in quanto a immagini, immaginazione e costruzione delle melodie. Tuttavia, questo primo tentativo ultra scarno dagli accenti post punk non prefigura ancora la grigissima trilogia a venire (i fondamentali Seventeen Seconds, Faith e Pornography). Tramite l’accostamento di suoni metallici, saturi e scattanti di Three Imaginary Boys (apparso nel maggio 1979), Robert Smith evoca le sue ansie e fobie in maniera atipica. Atipica come 10:15 Saturday Night, geniale pop song disarticolata e spigolosa, poggiante sulla struttura di improbabili chitarre distorte. O come la cover di Foxy Lady di Hendrix di cui Smith è un grandissimo fan. Insomma, ecco un debutto tanto bello quanto insolito, lontano anni luce dall’immenso successo che questo gruppo di punta della new wave britannica conoscerà durante gli anni ’80 e ’90… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Later hailed as one of the key goth rock albums of the '80s and considered by many hardcore Cure fans to be the band's best album, Pornography was largely dismissed upon its 1982 release, witheringly reviewed as a leaden slab of whining and moping. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in between: Pornography is much better than most mainstream critics of the time thought, but in retrospect, it's not the masterpiece some fans have claimed it to be. The overall sound is thick and murky, but too muddy to be effectively atmospheric in the way that the more dynamic Disintegration managed a few years later. For every powerful track like the doomy opener "One Hundred Years" and the clattering, desolate single "The Hanging Garden," there's a sound-over-substance piece of filler like "The Figurehead," which sounds suitably bleak but doesn't have the musical or emotional heft this sort of music requires. Pornography is an often intriguing listen, but it's just a bit too uneven to be considered a classic. © Stewart Mason /TiVo

The Cure were never afraid of artistically defining themselves. They had their own sound, an eerie glamour surrounding a dark whimsicality, yet fans flocked to them throughout the '80s and '90s. Commercial or cult favorites, they're impressive as being one of the '80s' seminal bands who culled more than 30 critical singles. Compilations like 1986's Staring at the Sea: The Singles and 1997's Galore showcased the Cure's accessibility; therefore, having a solid greatest-hits collection might be a bit nonessential. Then again, releasing an album like this at the tip of the new millennium calls for a celebration, and that's what the Cure did. They collected 16 amazing cuts which spanned 23 years and recall what once was. From the saucy synth strut of "The Walk" and the cabaret stylings of "The Lovecats" to the lilting swan songs of "Lovesong" and "Just Like Heaven," the Cure's ever-changing moods were switched up for something desirable and blissful. They are selectively classic, leaving this package to be its own storybook of sorts. The Cure did treat the fans with two new songs: "Cut Here" rises with early sounds of Madchester, but the glitzy swirls of "Just Say Yes" mark the Cure's return to form. Republica's Saffron joins Robert Smith for something campy and carefree. Greatest Hits is basically for the fans who have to have everything, but also a decent collection for those who never fully enraptured themselves with the Cure. © MacKenzie Wilson /TiVo

Certainly not the "darkest" the Cure would eventually get, Faith is, as represented by the cover art, one of the most "gray" records out there. Melancholy and despondent (the feel of funerals and old churches just oozes from this record) without the anger that would over take Pornography, Faith comes off as not just a collection of songs, but as a full piece. "The Holy Hour," "All Cats Are Grey," and the spectacular "Faith" are slow atmospheric pieces that take the softer elements from Seventeen Seconds, and -- when sidled up next to faster tracks like the single "Primary" and "Doubt" -- paint an overall picture of the ups and downs contained within a greater depressive period. But it's not all gloomy keyboards and minimalist percussion, Faith is also a milestone for Robert Smith lyrically, branching out into questions of faith and spirituality he never quite touched on so well ever again. A depressing record, certainly, but also one of the most underrated and beautiful albums the Cure put together. They would not touch on this sort of lush sadness so well again until 1989's Disintegration. © Chris True /TiVo

Punk/New wave - Uscito il 05 novembre 1990 | Fiction

Nel 1990, il remix – elemento fondamentale del DNA della dance music – è una tecnica utilizzata con parsimonia dai gruppi rock. Ma, preoccupati di seguire la tendenza del momento, i Cure decidono di rielaborare alcune delle loro vecchie canzoni tratte dagli otto album studio pubblicati tra il 1979 e il 1989. I loro fan rimangono un po’ perplessi dal risultato, che comunque supera bene gli anni che passano. In una nuova edizione nelle forme opulente di una Deluxe Edition di tre CD, Mixed Up è impreziosito da rari remix del periodo 1981/1990 (CD2) e da nuovi remix di Robert Smith (CD3). Nell’album di base, rimasterizzato dal leader dei Cure in persona, le riletture piuttosto piatte (Lullaby troppo vicino all’originale) si affiancano a quelle più audaci ed eccitanti (Close to Me) e persino a brani inediti come Never Enough, che allora faceva la sua porca figura con il suo diluvio di chitarre… Il terzo CD di questa Deluxe Edition è il vero punto di forza di questa nuova uscita a cinque stelle. Realizzato di recente da Robert Smith, i suoi sedici remix non richiamano più, logicamente, gli anni ‘90. Ce lo immaginiamo, a divertirsi come uno scienziato pazzo, a triturare le sue vecchie canzoni in tutti i sensi, riuscendo a volte a cambiarle completamente. Buia al massimo nella versione originale, A Strange Day da Pornography diventa qui quasi scoppiettante – quasi. Più in là, in Lost dell’album The Cure, sbanda in maniera piuttosto gradevole verso il drum’n’bass. In poche parole, si sente il cervello dei Cure ancora in piena attività, all’arrivo della sessantina… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
