Was wurden vor der Veröffentlichung dieser Platte für Gerüchte gestreut. Es sollte die letzte Platte der Band sein, da sie sich diesmal drei, anstelle von sonst zwei Jahren Zeit ließen. Das verworrenste Gerücht war, dass The Cure-Kopf Robert Smith Gefallen an Techno, bzw. Trip-Hop-Musik gefunden hat und dies auf dieser Platte ausleben wolle. Allen Gerüchten zum Trotz ist „Wish“ aber eine Platte wie jede andere The Cure-Platte auch, allerdings mit einer kleinen Überraschung, die selbst Die Hard-Jünger dieser Formation überraschte.
Gewohnt düster beginnt sie aber mit „Open“, in der Robert Smith eine Situation beschreibt, in der sich bestimmt jeder von uns schon befunden hat, nämlich auf einer Party, auf der man sich nicht zurecht findet und sich trotzdem einfach seinem Schicksal ergibt. Im Großen und Ganzen drehen sich die einzelnen Songs mal wieder um Beziehungen zwischen Liebenden und deren Inhalte, sowie deren Auflösung. So wird im zweiten Song „High“ die Situation beschrieben, in der man seine Verflossene glücklich sieht und sich deshalb in die Finger beißen oder die Haare raufen kann. In „Apart“ geht es um Beziehungen, die nur deshalb nicht zustande kommen, da die drei Worte „I love you“ nicht fallen wollen. Der Refrain „How did we get this far apart? / We used to be so close together / How did we get this far apart? / I thought this love would last for ever” wird hier traurig schön von Robert Smith gesungen. Verträumte Gitarrenklänge unterlegen dann den folgenden verworrenen Text von “From the edge of the deep green sea”. Verwirrend sind auch die fröhlichen Klänge am Anfang von „Wendy time“, das Ganze steigert sich aber noch und wird dadurch noch verwirrender, wenn der Song „Friday I´m in love“ erklingt, da dieser so poppig und fröhlich wie einst „Boy´s don´t cry“ daherkommt und inhaltlich dazu noch leicht verständlich, da es um den Start ins Wochenende geht. Schnell wird es dann aber wieder melancholisch, denn „Trust“ ist der perfekte Soundtrack für einen verregneten Spätherbsttag. In „A letter to Elise“ geht es dann wieder um eine verflossene Beziehung und wenn solche enden, sollte am besten ein „Cut“ gemacht werden. In diesen Song gibt es dann ein wahres Gitarrengewitter. Dass auch ganz einfache Wünsche meist nicht in Erfüllung gehen, macht uns dann „To wish impossible things“ klar. Zum Ende einer Beziehung heißt es meist wie in dem Song „End“: „Please stop loving me / Please stop loving me / I am none of these things“.
Fazit: Melancholisch und düster wie immer und eben mit dieser Überraschung mit „Friday I´m in love“ können The Cure auch mit dieser Platte überzeugen.

I have this pressing, and it sounds very fine. I really appreciate that it all fit onto one disc. Lovely.

This pressing is absolutely phenomenal! I gambled on buying this Greek pressing a while back since it was much cheaper than the UK & EU ones at that time, and I A/B'ed directly versus the original U.S. cd. This vinyl won by a long shot! MUCH more dynamic master, the drums pop noticeably more than on the cd. I've never heard the UK or EU pressings but I can't imagine they could sound any better than this. Definitely a safe buy if you get a good deal on one in great playing condition. Best way I've heard this album

Damn. Of course one of their later and less popular releases is harder to find and more expensive. If anyone sobers up enough to charge around 40≤, let me know. Otherwise I'll just keep waiting for the undoubtedly impending re-issues following the new album.

This appears to be the one I have with an exception . The total time of side one in the pictures provided says 34:27 while the one I have ( also the clear plastic) says 34: 09 . I have seen 34:09 listed in the other versions of the cassette but none of them have the clear plastic .

This tracklist is so strange, but it all works out so much better than I thought it would, especially the 30+ minutes sides. Volume is certainly low, but when you crank it, it's much nicer than I anticipated!

I have a few parts of the cover (booklet amd inlay) and I'm ready to give them for free to soemeone who buys something from me. They are adjusted to fit a standard cassette case (one edge cut by scissors).
