Well, I'll say this first off: The Cure were not one of my favorite bands. Yes, that's right, I rarely liked them. Ok, so they have the occasional song I admire, and do admire what they did for music, but overall I found them annoying. Oddly enough I love The Smiths... isn't that ironic? I will probably get slaughtered for what I just said, as I'm sure flocks of Cure fans are out there clutching their Robert Smith records like they were gold. I actually only own a few of their items, and that will reflect in my posts probably. I actually had to borrow this 12" from a mate of mine to be able to fill a request for someone who asked a long time ago (sorry for the delay). Perhaps, for me, it was just the separation of musical tastes back then, and I went down the opposite path. I think I was more apt to buy synthpop records than Cure records. Oh well, as long as somebody enjoys this 12", as to me it's 'just not bad'. I'd rather be listening to The Stranglers, Magazine or Wire.
