Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

I’ve never been a Cure nut, but something about their 1987 album, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, caught my ear around that time. I was working at Camelot Music in a Racine, Wisconsin mall before I went off to college in Colorado, and I used to play the new releases I found interesting. It’s the cover that made me open it and take a listen, and I’m glad I did. It turned into one of those albums I’ll always associate with that time.. being 18 years old, still seeing the high school sweetheart, and shipping off to school out of state.

So Rhino has introduced the Cure Deluxe Reissue Series, which is made up of albums the Cure put out between 1984-1987: Kiss Me, The Top, and The Head on the Door. Each album has an extra disc of rare outtakes and demos. The extra disk didn’t do too much for me, but I can imagine how great it would be for a Cure superfan. But it was great to hear this great album remastered, and damn, I still love that cover!

    Love the Cure. Disintegration is my favorite album. Saw the Cure in concert back in 1992 at George Mason University in Northern Va. About 10,000 poeple and these guys put on an awesome show. The bass had the whole building shaking. My wife hates the Cure…calls their music sad and depressing. I like it!! If you can’t explore the dark side, how do you know that you are truly happy?? You gotta respect any band that has a loyal following of fans throughout the world for over 20 years! I highly recommend the Cure DVD entitled Trilogy. It is filmed in Berlin and they perform three sets… Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers all LIVE!!!. A must have for any true Cure fans.
