From leMonk
The introductory synth sounds exciting (both the melody and the timbre are very original), the drums and the bass are very close and accurately support the haunting and desperate vocals (splendid performance) and the beautifully elaborated guitar patterns from Smith. Overall, this song sounds exceptionally good and it quickly became clear at the time that The Cure had its own, somewhat distinct style and, above all, tons of creativity and lots of perspective.

From niwavl
imo the best song ever made, the moody atmosphere created by the plodding bassline accompanied by smiths haunting lyrics, 10/10.
