        Usually retakes of songs, do not turn out as good as the originals, but this is one of the few exceptions. Boys don't Cry, Love Cats, Lullaby, in fact all the songs come across perfectly as acoustic versions and show the true genius of Robert Smith and the rest of the band. A must for anyones collection.

          The Acoustic Hits stands out as a visionary time-trip, coming at you sideways, filled with glorious wonder, like being a kid again and finding that perfect cereal box toy floating across a milky surface of your Frosted Flakes.
           
          Imagine it’s the year 2000, it’s a Friday night, you’re somewhere in Scranton Pennsylvania, moping up what’s left of a failed business trip, finding yourself strolling down to the hotel bar, picking over a buffet that’s been sitting in the warming trays for far too long, when a familiar chord floats across the room.  So you drop your plate off just as the house lights are dimming, pickup a drink at the bar and watch what you take to be a rendition of some Cure cover-band laying out a hypnotic array of oddly smooth and shivering numbers.  And as you stand there, a light show of stars begins spinning across the deep blue velvet drapes and and across the ceiling, all surrounding a ten by ten foot stage.  Then you suddenly come to realize that this isn’t a cover-band, this is The Cure, certainly much older and far more sensational as they acoustically walk through eighteen of their greatest gems, delivering the songs with understandable lyrics, sly guitars and with the coolest lounge lizard attitude, with Robert winking at you, ‘cause he knows you’re the only one in the room who knows who they are, and more, as you actually get what they’re doing.  And what they’re doing is pure magic, totally fresh, making me feel that I’m ever so young again, hearing The Cure for the very first time.

          After all the songs are taken from the original masters, … meaning it's Friday and I'm In Love again with The Cure.

          *** Sonically clean, warm and fascinating.
