Weekend trip to London, met with old friends, watched England progress against Sweden, watched the show, went to see Frida Karlo, what a weekend!

Pretty good setlist except for Friday I'm In Love but I guess that have to play that. That and Wrong Number are probably the only bad Cure songs.

Sorry, but anyone who doesn't like "Friday I'm In Love" is dead inside. That's my jam. Got it on my Friday afternoon commute home playlist right there with GNR's "Locomotive" and Janet Jackson's "Escapade".

Yup totes.

Ya buncha fucken amateurs. Listen to the guitar melodies dancing all over the bass, rhythm guitar and keyboards.. LISTEN HARD to the stuff in the background of the intro bit and under the first verses....

I much preferred the RFH gig, but get the festival set list....

Too much of their newer stuff for me. Hard to argue with At Night, Other Voices, A Strange Day and Bananafishbones though....

True. It was a pretty good wander thru the years.

Yeah the last two albums are not the best output. Some great songs in there but they’re not all winners. It Can Never Be The Same is a pearler though.

:waits: Their last two albums are two of my favourites. There are a lot of duds on earlier albums. The last two are intense, well produced, well written... I can't think of a bad song from either. Take "The Scream" from 4:13 Dream. It sounds a bit Bauhaus-y, but it's great, and it's a deep cut. The Promise from their self-titled album is probably my favourite dark Cure song ever.

For me, I think the last good Cure album was Bloodflowers.

I would have loved to have been in London for that show.

Thank you!

Sure, I'd be interested in the London show. No hurry for it, whenever you have a chance is fine. :tiphat:

I agree with your top four. I'd put Bloodflowers and The Cure at #5 and #6 though. I'd also put Seventeen Seconds and 4:13 Dream ahead of Faith and 3 Imaginary Boys.

Yeah...3 imaginary boys probably should drop a few spots. I probably haven’t given their newer stuff enough listens. Faith stays though. :essence:

Friday - yeah I agree but the set list (and location) totally rocked haven't stopped playing disintegration since
Odd thing was I never saw one obvious goth there
Nearly 30 tracks by a band that started in the seventies, come on
