Boomkat product review for:

the cure - Classic Album Selection (1979-1984)

*Five of the best albums you'll ever hear, includes the holy trinity "Seventeen Seconds" "Faith" and "Pornography" as well as "Three Imaginary Boys" and "The Top"* We've gone on enough about our un-ending love for The Cure's late 70's heyday, and in particular the incredible double dose of misery and beauty that came with "Seventeen Seconds" and "Faith", so it should come as no surprise that this bumper 5 album set rocks our boat. "Pornography" is another dystopian heavy-hitter, and their debut "Three Imaginary Boys" is just an out-and-out classic, so all that really leaves is "The Top" - probably one of the more derided albums in The Cure's catalogue - but one we actually really love, especially for "Dressing Up" - one of the saddest lovesick songs you'll ever hear and the soundtrack to a forgotten youth. In all, if you don't own any of these albums - you're in for a treat.
