Cure - The Cure - 2004
I had seen this coming, though. When Wild Mood Swings came out, I had a little twitch. Hmmm what was that, Robert? Then Bloodflowers shows up, and I am thinking, okay, there is definitely something wrong here. Things had started to fall apart then. I felt a little better after seeing them in St Louis that summer and they put on a kick-ass 3 hour show. But, then this appeared, and I knew the show was over.
Yet, here I stand with an album and a half of materiel, chased down, gathered and arranged into one big set. All the demos, b-sides and guest vocals. I am definitely an obsessive/compulsive. Or maybe I'm relentlessly hoping that one day........
I found a picture of a guy with this painting of Robert on the back of his leather coat. What an AWESOME painting. I had to Photoshop it a bit to get it to look more like a painting and less like an article of clothing, but I feel it worked out well. Two discs, one cover. Make it work...
I don't know, some people love Robert regardless of what he does, and maybe they will like this. All I know, is that I feel sad for him when I listen to it. And unfortunately, 4:13 wasn't much better.
For all the completists.... There you go.
