i like the sound of the glove more than the actual songs, but this one always struck me as way ahead of its time



sounds like a water lever in donkey kong country

yes. you guys hip to fools dance?




i prefer this to the glove even if it sounds and looks like a cure ripoff which would figure considering basslines are such an integral part of the cure sound.

I still love The Cure.

I saw them at Curiosa in Carson in 2006 and it was probably just a regular show for them but the feelings/atmosphere/music of that show stick in my memory pretty great

I also have a soft spot for The Top. I love how druggy it is. I know Robert was a mess then, and I'm glad he got better, but the circumstances add another dimension to it. I know The Top isn't a popular choice, but the other night I was moving my records to a new spot and I was really kicking myself for selling my Fiction pressings of The Top and The Head on the Door years back.

Love "Dressing Up." Also how grotesque some of his vocals are, especially "Piggy in the Mirror," where he sounds like Glenn fucking Danzig or something.

The Top is straight up either my favorite or second favorite Cure album depending on mood (Disintegration is the other one). I like the theatricality and all the songs about bodily dysphoria. I guess people dislike how over the top his vocals are on that album but it's a strength of it for me.

Yeah, Bob's vocals throughout are definitely some of my favorite performances of his.

not a big fan of the top personally. Empty world and caterpillar are probably my fav. Dressing up is a lot better live. ALways felt like a very left field choice that they put it on Paris but it fits perfectly. Also Give me it live works a lot better, it's a bit of a highlight of In orange. I think one of the stranger choice of In Orange though is starting the show with Shake dog Shake and Piggy in the mirror. Regardless how you feel about these songs (i think they're ok) i think they are terrible openers. It almost feels like they wanted to antagonize the crowd.

i forgot how this used to be one of my favorite songs of all time before i really took a deep dive into their discography. probably the most emotionally intense song on standing by the sea. revisiting it a bit recently and it still hits just as hard.

glad to see the top getting some love in here. just a wildly underrated record. wailing wall up there for one of the most intensely bleak cure songs imo.

easily in my top 5 cure song but i prefer the faster live version (as heard on paris) but i guess atmospherically it loses something. I love this song and it got me to read the book which i also love. Some of those lines are straight lifted from the books. Like the first four lines "All the faces, all the voices blur change to one face, change to one voice, prepare yourself for bed,
The light seems bright & glares on white wall" is almost verbatim from the book. I think also if i remember it well "on that bleak track, see the sun is gone again" Anyway yeah, shame this never made it on a proper record.
