"Oozing 80's Goodness"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Nothing says 80's music like The Cure. Great CD with two of the greatest 80's songs of all time on – Friday I'm in Love and Just Like Heaven. If you were a teenager in the 80's you need this if you don't have it all ready.

By way of distinguishing GREATEST HITS from the other Cure collections on the market, let's first note that most of the doom and gloom for which the band is often derided is largely absent here due to the disinclusion of most of their early material. The bulk of this disc is devoted to mid-period cure classics such as the simultaneously innocent and randy "Let's Go to Bed," the breathless, horn-driven "Close to Me," and the bouncy, jazz-tinged "The Lovecats." To prove that the Cure didn't peter out after the Reagan era, GH reminds us that the transcendently effervescent pop gem "Friday I'm in Love" and the hard-driving rocker "Never Enough" stand as tall as the group's earlier efforts. A couple of attractive new tunes are tacked on for the benefit of those who've already got everything else here.

What the critics say...

Q (12/01, p.154) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Everything here attests to their consistency, invention and singularity....the real buying incentive is a limited-edition bonus CD featuring the hits in spartan, acoustic guise..."
