It's funny how opinions differ, I disagree entirely. The Cure are profoundly overrated. I've tried to love them, I really have! They have a couple of great singles but they are a very average band in my opinion.
You can't try to like something. You either do or you don't. Couple of great singles? Let me guess: Friday I'm in love and Boys Don't Cry? Those songs are shit compared to their best: Pictures Of You, Just Like Heaven, not to mention everything off Faith, Seventeen Seconds, Pornography, Head On The Door, Kiss Me x3, Disintegration, and others.

rip roaring,free scoring,never boring, celtic.
Robert is a bit of a joke in the UK , thought of as a fat clown who has been delivering the same kinda three songs for 40 years.
The trouble is Radiohead does their kinda stuff way better.

Here in the USA we have always been overly earnest about them. Again like Radiohead mistaking their earnested, student type melancholy for depth.
Robert has't had anythig to say for 35 years and single handledy made the term "gothic " into a jole

He is also lying here. Truth be told back in the day Robert had a kinda crush on M. Copying his beads etc , I tend to think he saw the "feud" as a kind of backhanded compliment,in reality M was just bitchy about almost everyone.
Whereas M would make simple quips and move on, Robert would have a poster of Morrissey in a changing room with tape over his mouth.

its worth rembering, nobody has every wanted sex with Robert Smith
i did a thing on here years ago about a groupie having a one night stand with robert smith and the poor thing wakes in the morning to see this big ball of sweat and big fat coupon looking back her,lassie must have shat herself.

Johnny Marr's said some nice things about the Cure and Robert Smith in recent interviews. He's also exchanged signature guitars with Reeves Gabrels, their guitarist. Could a collaboration be far off?

Back in the day.....we all danced at the local indie disco to the Cure. Lovecats was always a highlight.
I remember that well. But even then I realised it was a novelty song. A catchy novelty song though. A friend went to a Cure concert (free ticket of course) and after 3.5 to 4 hours and 40+ songs later complained that they didn't play Lovecats.

That's the closest crank face Gabrels ever gets to a smile. Jesus he always looks so disinterested on stage with The Cure. I wish Robert would kick him out and replace him with an empty corner on stage. Same impact to the band.

My favourite Cure tracks: A Forest, & Lullaby. They've also given us some absolute pop market bilge...Love Cats, Boys Don't. I kinda lost interest upon hearing these.
For me, they were never as 'cool' as they pretended to be.

They played all the hits when i saw them in Hyde Park a few yrs ago......was great.

Is that why 65,000 people bought tickets to see them play in Hyde Park on their 40th anniversary a couple of years ago? ie because they thought Robert Smith and the Cure were a bit of a joke.

I was one of them. It was fantastic.......helped by England winning at the world cup and it being a very hot day. I think i spotted about 5 goths which was a bit disappointing.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Hits Cure has nothing on deep cuts Cure.

From an interview from 2019

"
As well as lengthy discussions about politics, vegetarianism and music, Morrissey also found time to apologise to The Cure‘s Robert Smith, with whom he traded insults in the 1980s.

“I said some terrible things about him 35 years ago… but I didn’t mean them,” he said. “I was just being very Grange Hill. It’s great when you can blame everything on Tourette’s syndrome.”

there is no one member of the Cure who is making a fool of the Cure and their legacy.

Not two records sound the same, how many bands can say that?
Post-Wish, it is poor record after poor record.. Bloodflowers is one of the limpest and self indulgent albums I have ever heard. In 2004 Smith was constantly speaking of this feud with Morrissey to get more stories in the media: this was quite pathetic. His Cure 2004 album is a big turd, no more no less.

Hate all you want, the fact remains: Robert Smith and The Cure have years of great music and performances remaining while Moz says goodbye forever to this “life” of his by the end of the Moz Vegas concerts.

RIP Morrissey🤣🤣🤣
Long live Robert Smith! Long live The Cure!

Ffs. A new member and you start off by posting this pebble dash diarrhoea.

Robert Smith has a lovely wife. The only crush he had on Moz was probably wishing to crush his head with a brick.

Meanwhile Robert Smith, who wrore albums like Faith and Pornography and Head On The Door and Kiss Me and Disintegration and Wish is a joke? Not to mention a zillion fantastic b-sides. And you somehow speak for all of the UK

Is that why 65,000 people bought tickets to see them play in Hyde Park on their 40th anniversary a couple of years ago? ie because they thought Robert Smith and the Cure were a bit of a joke.
Yep all from a shopping mall in Arizona

Oh lord what dumb thing to say

People usually don't like coffee first off BUT they try until they do , People often don't like beer BUT they try until they do .... People often try to make it through a "difficult " lp and keep listening until they like it (or can't) ..I expect your workmates try to like you but can't because you are a basic bitch. You are the exception to that rule

Apart from that the list goes on and on and on . .

In reference to your other comment, I was obviously part playing you thunder flap. By, the way I'd rather live in America than the UK any day of the scum week.

The UK is dead, its spent .. Its so utterly past it, it has little Englander fools like you who say mornic things like "For Americans"(racist) ..What the country that produced Elvis, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, The Ramones, The NY Dolls, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Hendrix, Debbie Harry, Sparks, The Gun club , The Pixies etc etc etc Public Enemy , Krs One, Snoop, Wu Tang , De La Soul , DMX , Motown
etc etc .

The place where the best of British often move or have a second home, Looking at you David Bowie
Lets not forget the massive amounts of films that came out of it , once England Shot its bolt in cinema. kitchen sink and Michael Powel were done by 69 . Nick Roege limp on , he was done by the late 70s

The TV shows which most British people rip off - The Sopranos, Curb, Seinfeld, Breaking Bad , The Wire ..The Larry Sanders Show etc etc The UK hasn't put out a groundbreaking show since the 90s ( Prime Suspect, Queer as Folk)


M has it right, He's like Crisp and Coward, as English as the day is spent, but he ain't no dummy, he spends plenty of time over here, and no not just in LA

If you are from England fine but if you have only lived there, all you have ever done is holiday for two weeks. The facts are clear, dear...There is no debate ....You are boring. Utterly without adventure, a small town knower of nothing

Most white working-class brits don't prefer the Cure to say , the Jam or the smiths or Echo and The Bunnymen
Mainly its middle class fodder . Like Radiohead now , yes they may like some music but none of them would dream of loving The Cure or Robert smith , he lacks style and authenticity and thats what counts in those circles, honey

Smelly Robert has never ever said anything "on the money" ever. He certainly isn't relevant now in 2021 .
The Cure managed the worst crime ever to take a fantastic literary tradition like gothic and reduce it to a worldwide joke.
Joy Divison moved it into Music and Robert killed it .

I mean just look at Robert hes a complete fat slob, a joke of a man .
I remember when Suede first came out, he bitched about them and Brett. Do you know why, because he's jealous? Because no matter how much money he's made , no matter how many people buy tickets to see their "Gothic" Grateful dead shit shows , that ramble on and on . No matter all that. he knows he has never ever been thought of as attractive. much like his fans

NOW, off you go back to your third world country full of scum that can't even speak the language, the modern working class, no culture just oceans of slums. "You talkin to me bruv" . " Yeah bruv hes fam"
Keep the country, like you it's going nowhere

You can't deny Friday I'm In Love is a great pop song, regardless of how unrepresentative it is of their work. I've heard all of those albums but the only song of theirs I really love is Charlotte Sometimes
