Comments for the album Seventeen Seconds by The Cure:
This is minimalism at its finest! Everything from the music to the lyrics to the album art is reserved and subtle. Not nearly as dark the The Cure following two albums would be but a pleasant sort of melancholy. This is the perfect album for an overcast day. For those who find a bit of comfort in sadness, yet not enough to hang themselves.
Really amazing at how it creates an overall mood rather than just try to write a handful of really great tunes and string them together. A Forest is a definite standout, though it's real strength is how it adds to the album's minimalistic and darkly dreamlike atmosphere rather than distancing itself from the other songs.
This album is a masterpiece on how to create a specific atmosphere throughout the whole record. I find that atmosphere to be calming and contemplative and I like very much to play this album followed by "Faith" and "Pornography" to create a couple of hours of very enjoyable music in a similar mood. Excellent for a rainy day or to be listened to late at night.
This is where they really become a goth band. Goth Cure probably had one of the best sounds any band has ever had, and here it's just as gripping as it would ever be.
Probably The Cure's first fully cohesive album. deserves to be rated higher in this pretty soft year. 1980... super strong at the very top, but kinda soft after.
