This may say something more about me than the current state of the music scene! Of the albums I bought last year (at least 200, new releases but mostly back catalogue) my favourite was Join the Dots; a 4 CD comp of Cure B sides and rarities. Not your average album of this ilk, each disk is a stand alone set by itself. I am, obviously, a massive fan and would recommend the box set to any other serious 'Cureist', mine cost 20 quid off Amazon, absolute bargain!

saw them last live in 2011 and was pleasantly surprised. After several bad albums they (he?) were still able to keep some of the live magic...

My favorite band of all time...the 8 albums they made in the 80's (including Japanese Whispers which I think is really good...) are simply mind-blowing. The best UK band by far along with The Smiths.

Nunca me llamó la atención la música de The Cure mas que sus éxitos radiales, ahora comienzo a adentrarme en la oscuridad de sus discos y son geniales. Ese Robert Smith es estupendo.

My all time favorite band.
Robert Smith is the master of Post-punk and Gothic Rock and influenced many bands such as Interpol, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Tears for Fears, The Killers and even The xx. But none of these bands could write a song as great as "Pictures of You" or "Just Like Heaven". Neither can anybody else do in future.

I know this goes against my own perspective on comps, and I really should check out their individual albums, but I really enjoy both compilations the Cure released.
