From LedZep
Cannot decide between this and Pornography. Both are masterpieces of the darkest and the most "goth" Cure period. Holy Hour against One Hundred Years, All Cats Are Gray against A Strange Day and so on...

From imimesis
One of their earliest albums, this may be their best. Not bloated and overlong like some of their later "masterpieces" (e.g. Disintegration, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me), this album reveals the genius of the band, and especially Robert Smith. Lovely and svelte, from front to back. Bravo!

This is my favourite of the earlier darker records. It's consistent all the way through with stunning moments such as, the holy hour, all cats are grey, and the title track. I always found, seventeen seconds, a little uneven, but this is right on it from start to finish. A great band record, when The Cure were still a band and not a Robert Smith solo project.

From KGB
Dark and moody, this is The Cure as non-fans imagine them after looking at a picture of Robert Smith. Best song is between the surprisingly frantic "Primary" and "All Cats Are Grey".

From timtooky
flat, hypnotic, gloomy.
not consistently as good as seventeen seconds - but still a cool goth-record.

The band's sound was developing around the time that they made this album. Brings back great memories, this was my music back in the early eighties. Still love 'Primary'
