1989 was such a great year for music, and this album was a big part of that. Such a deep statement by the band

Robert Smith wanted something for he to be remembered, because in his opinion, before this album, he never really achieved his potencial. On with I actually agree with him. If he wanted to make a masterpiece, well, he made It. I couldn't describe how much this album describes my sense for music, every direction It takes both musically and lyrically are just about perfect to me. The atmosphere, the long-winded intros, the moody guitar lines, Smith's delivering, I Just love it. And who cannot cry listening to "Plainsong" and "Pictures of You" in a sequence?

Allthough I agree with some of you that due to the length of the album can be tough to completely finish the album, the combination of plainsong - pictures of you is just perfect. Another great example of why play an album on shuffle is a sin.

This is, of course, an objectively great record and wonderful collection of soundscapes. It is hard to be sad enough to really appreciate it for a full 72 minutes, though.

From LedZep
Always loved The Cure, and for a long time Wish was my favourite. But with many repeated listens I've realised that Disintegration is not only more consistent than Wish, it's also an album I can never get enough of. There simply isn't an album I could safely say is dearer to me than Disintegration. Sometimes I think it's the best album I've ever listened to, sometimes it's around the top 10, but it's always here and always such a beautiful album all around.

The Cure made one the moodiest records of all time with this one. Perfect for days when you want to feel sorry for yourself. Expansive soundscapes meet great song writing. No other output from the Cure affects me too much. I like Pornography and Head on the Door just fine, and Kiss Me has some solid tunes, but this album is perfection. It’s very hard for to say one thing critical about this album. I don’t like Fascination Street and Last Dance all that much if I’m being critical, but I love the rest of the record so much that this is a very minor discrepancy. At the end of the day, I can’t imagine music getting better than this
