Just realised that Wish is the best Cure album by faaar...

Always thought it was Disintegration or Three Imaginary Boys, but no, it’s quite obviously Wish.

End of thread.

haven’t heard any of the others but I believe Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me to be the best

I’ve heard almost all of the others and I think you’re right.

Nah, everyone’s allowed to pick multiple best Cure albums- call it a draw between Seventeen Seconds, Faith, Disintegration and Wish with everything else pre-Wish as a close runner up

Funny way to spell Faith

The run of Kiss Me x3, Disintegration and Wish is their holy trinity :+1::+1::+1:

A couple of obvious bangers aside, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me sounds like a sessions record to me. Loads of throwaway stuff on there. Think I’d consider it the weakest of their albums I’ve heard.

It’s ‘Pornography’. Better luck next time!

Obviously it’s the best of.

Agree - it’s ‘Wish’. I ‘wish’ I’d have seen that tour - the live album of that tour, ‘Show’, is not only The Cure’s best live album, but one of the best live albums ever.

Soz it’s head in the door… Or on the door? I’m not googling it

But wish is cool

Another one of those ace albums the critics pissed on at the time but they don’t know shit

Wish is, indeed the equal best Cure album, tied with Seventeen Seconds, Faith, Pornography, Head on the Door and Disintegration.

It was my gateway Cure album, so will always be my fave.

I do not like Wish that much.

It’s legitimately Staring at the Sea. Don’t even care if that they tried releasing all or most of the songs on lesser albums beforehand

It’s what ever the Cure listening club said it was. I’m day drinking so can’t check.
But yea. That.

It’s maybe the fourth or fifth best Cure album and its still a 10/10. What a band.

It’s the best Cure album that contains happy songs in the tracklist
