Whether you're a fan of the Cure or not, when a 30th-anniversary reissue of Wish was announced, along with a bunch of unreleased material, it made even the coldest of hearts tremble. Even though it may not be a go-to Cure album (and who can be surprised as it follows the immense Pornography in 1982 and Disintegration in 1989), this 9th album in their gold-plated discography still didn't receive the critical success it deserved upon its release. Despite success in the charts and reaching number one in the UK in only its first week of release on 21st April 1992, Wish received mixed reviews. However, after more than ten years at the top, the press became more inclined to appreciate the violent electric freshness of grunge as well as more melancholic shoegaze.


The Cure spent six months recording in the English countryside at Manor Studio in Shipton-on-Cherwell, near Oxford, England. The band wanted to return to the 90s; to go back to the guitars and put the keyboards on the back burner. "I thought straight away we should make an album that’s different to Disintegration. In fact, we started to want to focus on guitars again when we worked on the remix project of our classics with Mixed Up", explained Robert Smith. Whilst the three singles ‘High’, ‘Letter to Elise’ and, of course, ‘Friday, I'm in Love’ are lighter and more pop-centric, the languorous ‘Trust’ with its long intro and ‘To Wish Impossible Things’ with its haunting violin gently exude the melancholic and emotional power of The Cure. Ultimately, nothing in Wish really strays from the essence of the band. Not even ‘Friday, I'm in Love’.


To celebrate their 30th anniversary, the English band have pulled out all the stops. The first CD features the whole of Wish remastered by Robert Smith himself—something he’s been wanting to do since its release. He’s helped by Miles Showell at the famous Abbey Road studios. The second contains 24 unreleased tracks, including instrumental demos, sung demos and nine previously unreleased tracks, whilst the third offers four rarities found on Lost Wishes, a cassette that was only sold by mail order at the time. In short, this is more than enough to get you through the winter. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Album Description

Whether you're a fan of the Cure or not, when a 30th-anniversary reissue of Wish was announced, along with a bunch of unreleased material, it made even the coldest of hearts tremble. Even though it may not be a go-to Cure album (and who can be surprised as it follows the immense Pornography in 1982 and Disintegration in 1989), this 9th album in their gold-plated discography still didn't receive the critical success it deserved upon its release. Despite success in the charts and reaching number one in the UK in only its first week of release on 21st April 1992, Wish received mixed reviews. However, after more than ten years at the top, the press became more inclined to appreciate the violent electric freshness of grunge as well as more melancholic shoegaze.


The Cure spent six months recording in the English countryside at Manor Studio in Shipton-on-Cherwell, near Oxford, England. The band wanted to return to the 90s; to go back to the guitars and put the keyboards on the back burner. "I thought straight away we should make an album that’s different to Disintegration. In fact, we started to want to focus on guitars again when we worked on the remix project of our classics with Mixed Up", explained Robert Smith. Whilst the three singles ‘High’, ‘Letter to Elise’ and, of course, ‘Friday, I'm in Love’ are lighter and more pop-centric, the languorous ‘Trust’ with its long intro and ‘To Wish Impossible Things’ with its haunting violin gently exude the melancholic and emotional power of The Cure. Ultimately, nothing in Wish really strays from the essence of the band. Not even ‘Friday, I'm in Love’.


To celebrate their 30th anniversary, the English band have pulled out all the stops. The first CD features the whole of Wish remastered by Robert Smith himself—something he’s been wanting to do since its release. He’s helped by Miles Showell at the famous Abbey Road studios. The second contains 24 unreleased tracks, including instrumental demos, sung demos and nine previously unreleased tracks, whilst the third offers four rarities found on Lost Wishes, a cassette that was only sold by mail order at the time. In short, this is more than enough to get you through the winter. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

The Cure switch to the remix…

The Cure re-edit in a Deluxe Edition “Mixed Up”, their remix album released in 1990. A unique record that came largely from the heart of their leader Robert Smith, as this interview from the time goes to show.

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-proclaimed numbskulls unleashed their distorted rock ‘n’ roll and nihilistic lyrics to the public. Fronting the Stooges was Iggy Pop, a guy whose dance moves almost seemed to resemble Nijinsky’s—only far more wild and far more rebellious. No wonder he was destined to become the godfather of punk rock.

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.
