I don't understand the criticism of the sound of this pressing. It sounds great to my ears. It's not a high fidelity recording to begin with, but this record sounds great on vinyl. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up this pressing if you find it at a decent price.

This album definitely doesn't deserve the hate it gets. It's a great powerful, raw sounding record. Lost is a great twisted, claustrophobic, hypnotic opener with mind drilling bassline. Labirynth takes you further into that feelings, but with less minimalistc approach. Then comes the sun. Before Free, opening with a lovely "yeah, yeah, yeah" is probably among the best The Cure songs that should be a single but weren't. The End Of The World is a pop-rock Cure at their best. I've always considered this as Bob's answer to the noughties wave of indie. Anniversary brings you back to the gloom. Dark, intense, mysterious almost like Pornography-era Cure, but brought to the beggining of 21st century reality. And then comes Us Or Them. One of the most powerful, furious, loud Cure songs ever. If I said that Anniversary is the 21st century take on Pornography aesthetic, then Us Or Them is the 21st century version of Shake Dog Shake. Great. You just want to furiously jump around and scream the chorus along with Mr. Smith.

Okay, next three songs are rather mediocre, I agree. Alt.End has some potential tho. I feel like it would be a really great song, but it got somehow way too polished and smoothed. It should sound just as raw and angry as Us Or Them. But actually it sounds like they had another song in the style of Us Or Them, but then all of a sudden decided to make a pop song out of it. Didn't work. Sounds better live, but still not powerful enough. (I Don't Know Whats Going) On is probably the weakest song here. It's not really bad but it has nothing interesting to show. It doesn't even last 3 minutes, but it's enough for me to just get bored of it. Would trade it for any b-side without hesitation. Taking Off is maybe a pleasant tune but again it has nothing new to offer, nothing to get me more interested.

About Never I've always had mixed feelings. Some days I really enjoy it, and other days it's indifferent to me. I consider it as a transitional tune from the lighter songs to the incoming climax of The Promise.

And talking The Promise: wow. The way this song develops, the way it is slowly welcoming you to it's story and the way it is slowly turning into a thrilling madness. Imo there's everything we love about The Cure in this song. I would love to hear it live someday.

And after the storm, comes the chilling, yet very sad ending. Beautiful, typically Cure ballad of helplessness, hopelessness, being alone and miserable. Heartbreaking and amazing Going Nowhere. Again, would love to hear them play it live.

might be worth it if it's like twenty bucks; even if just to hear the mostly great "bonus" tracks. the mastering is so harsh and digitally-inclined that it sounds absolute rubbish on vinyl. can't believe these prices smh
