always loved perfect girl. There's a lot of songs i dont like on KMKMKM but this is one of the highlights. Always felt this album coudl lose like 7 songs easy and then be closer to perfect.

It's basically

The kiss
Catch
Why can't i be you?
How Beautiful you are
Just like heaven
One more time
Like Cockatoos
Icing sugar
the Perfect Girl
Shiver and Shake


I dont really ever listen to the rest. I wish Torture wasn't so dumb because i like the music and it has a great bassline. I'd include a thousand hours if it didn't have lyrics either actually. Great music kinda hinting at what disintegration would be but then he starts singing and it's like..did you have to? Fight is perhaps the worst 80's cure song. Actually i'm pretty sure it is unless i'm forgetting something.

fight is probably the worst, yeah. i'd nominate hey you and screw too.

i've never understood how KMKMKM is ranked anywhere near the other 80s albums, it's patchy from the jump. i'd add all i want as a great song, though.

The Kiss Me B-sides are better than some of the songs on that record.

This was my introduction to The Cure, first time i heard and saw them. This would have been i think mid 1989 or whenever this video came out. Legit thought Robert was a woman. It's not that i hadn't seen rockstars in makeup but i guess usually it was like glam guys acting fairly manly. I couldnt really explain the voice though. I think it was only a few months before i figured it out.

yeah i've said this before on here but the cure have to be the very best b-sides band. the kmx3 and wish b-sides are unreal good, it's mysteriously beautiful how this band has seemingly willfully obscured some of their best material. it's so romantic.

going back to the kmx3 discussion, it's probably neck and neck with disintegration for my favorite cure album. it's indulgence and sprawl is part of it's opulent charm for me even if there are some noticeable creative redundancies and a gulf in quality between the album's best and worst songs. it's a palatial piece of music.

man i love the cure so much. 8-)

hot hot hot!!!! is terrible and sounds like the red hot chili peppers so i think i'll just get rid of that in a bit. replace it with "one more time" probably. "why can't i be you" is not great but i like how it's a song about wanting to look like a pretty girl so i'll leave it on anyways. "fight" is pretty charming to me because of it's relation to nu metal whereas most of the other filler on kmkmkm doesn't even have that.

honestly, idealized versions of either kiss me and/or wish with the integrated b-sides would prob make for my favorite cure albums

Hot Hot Hot was the song that got me into the Cure (and rock music in general) when I was like 13 years old. It was the Mixed Up extended version.

I can't explain it. Before I heard that song all I listened to was new jack swing and top 40 rap.
