An atmospheric and dark output, very important to what would come later on The Cure's catalogue.

I wish that "All I Have To Do Is Kill Her" was recorded in studio and appeared on the album.
Favourite: "The Figurehead"
Least: "Siamese Twins"

The title track, "Cold" and (especially) "Strange Day" stood out from the pack for me but a lot of the rest of this album just kind of blurs together. That could be a pro ("Consistency!") or a con ("Every song sounds the same!") depending on what you're looking for.

This has the heavy bass and moodiness I like about The Cure in spades, yet this dreary soundscape has a tendency to become monotonous when there's nothing else present to occasionally break it all up. You will find no balance of tone here and no reprieve from the gloom. This is pretty much the musical equivalent of a blanket of fog.

Production on this album is terrific. Very dark, moody, and spacey. Sounds like the instruments were recorded in different rooms.

The guitar riff in Strange Day is the most unsettling sound produced by guitar ever.

If you say you like gothic rock and you don't like this album, you're a liar.

Doom and gloom, but in the right mood a strangely enjoyable album. It's not a Cure album that I go back to as much as others but when I do it's a great listen. Some dark tracks, but what do you expect? Still in the top three Cure albums.
