Boomkat Product Review:
The Cure's 1979 debut album, Three Imaginary Boys gets the reissue treatment, re-mastered by Robert Smith.
Three Imaginary Boys saw a short-lived power trio line-up for the band, with guitarist Porl Thompson getting dropped for not meeting the minimalist requirements Robert Smith wanted to impose upon the album's arrangement. Consequently, Three Imaginary Boys sounds unique within the band's catalogue, sounding oddly hollowed out, with the drums high in the mix.
There are hints at the pop gold the band would later go on to strike: 'Fire In Cairo' still sounds like a defining post-punk highlight, with some especially memorable riffing. This latest incarnation of the album comes in an incredibly lavish plastic gatefold complete with brain-troubling optical effects on the sleeve.
