Default MB Artist Classics: The Cure - "Three Imaginary Boys"


Debut album from the boys, released later in the US and Australia as Boys Don't Cry. Slightly different tracklist, so I guess whichever one you want to listen to and vote for?

one of those 10/10 for what it is albums

not their fully realized sound yet, not much lush guitars, moody atmospheres, or melodramatic tears, their debut is like an adolescent Wire, spunkier if not as intellectual

11 or so tracks of delicious speed pop and a few gloomier tracks, all of them memorable, dance-able, catchy, bursting with personality

and speaking of personality maybe on this one more than any other you see how Robert Smith's vocals fill out a recording and the way his sense of humor can carry simple songs "So What" being the primary example of this a 3 chord punker that never goes anywhere, but is carried completely by Smith's entirely improvised (drunken) performance

Alright guys, look I'm paying attention to other threads again! Also I'll listen to this album later. Gotta love Pornography though.

A pretty rough and at times underdeveloped album, but in a way where it kind of adds character rather than really subtract from the experience all that much. It really, really feels like the first album of a band in how aimless and sketchy it sometimes comes across. But there's a lot to like about it and even the more shaky tracks grow on me a little with repeat listens.

Favorite tracks: "Object", "Subway Song", "Foxy Lady" (almost feels like early Roxy Music!), "Meat Hook" and "Fire in Cairo".

7/10

be honest did Subway song make you jump

Meathook is one of my favorite Cure songs, but how raw the Easy Cure version is kinda ruined the 3IB one for me

hard to do when you're sitting down, but I could see it causing some violent foot tapping.

I guess I'm too accustomed to noisy, screechy metal to have really noticed. I listened to it at least three times and I didn't really notice much. It's not that much louder than the general volume of the album, although it comes after relative silence.

Are you sure you're not just imagining it?
