From Brad1770
'The Head On The Door' represents album one of one of the best 3 consecutive album streaks in music ('Head On The Door' 1985 , followed by 'Kiss Me , Kiss Me , Kiss Me 1987 followed by 'Disintegration' 1989 - 3 Killer Diller albums in 4 years is quite simply a stunning achievement)

Inspired by the albums 'Kaleidoscope' (Siouxsie and the Banshees) and 'Dare' (Human League) Bob set out to produce a record that was eclectic with a range of styles and moods . Mission accomplished with the pop styling's of "Inbetween Days" and "Close To Me" to the Spanish feel of "The Blood" , the angular weirdness that is "Six Different Ways" , the fullness of "Push" , the new wave-ish "Baby Screams" , the darker "A Night Like This" and "Sinking" where the lyrics don't kick in until the 2 minute mark

'The Head On The Door' sits alongside 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' as amazingly eclectic albums that completely work

It suffers from a commom problem with Cure's albums, It is inconsistent, but It has great tracks. Kind of difficult to rate It highly.

A fantastic album - Close To Me and Six Different Ways are outstanding. In Between Days and Push are great. But feel there are a couple of weaker tracks on the album like Screw and A Night Like This.

Bassline to "Sinking" is the best thing on this album. Every b-side to every The Head On The Door single is amazing.
Favourite: "Sinking"
Least: "The Blood"

Non sono più i Cure profondamente oscuri dei primi quattro album e a me sono sempre piaciuti di più così, con l'alternanza di luci ed ombre ad arricchire la loro musica.

From lleon79
The Cure can go two ways: either very gothic or extremely pop sounding. The Head on the Door is the latter and it's the best Cure pop album. I once read somewhere that every song in this record could easily be a single and I strongly agree. Every time I listen to this my love for it only deepens. "Inbetween Days" is one of my favorite album openers ever, "Push" is a song I love listening to on an afternoon, "Close to Me" always makes me want to dance and "A Night Like This" makes me want to cry. I can never get tired of Robert Smith.
