Pornography is their best album, hands down. It balances the best moments of the Cure's sonic experimentation with some of Robert's greatest vocal contributions, while still not feeling overly bloated like later Cure releases. One Hundred Years and A Strange Day are the best Cure songs.
Prove me wrong.
Favorite band ever, Disintegration being my favorite album and the title track being my favorite song of them, that song is so underrated, being a caribbean fag is suffering cause you know you're never seeing them live, going to a tribute concert of them next thursday, i hope i don't cringe more than i expect.

Even though I love a lot of their albums and I do think they have some great songs that weren't singles. I agree though. Smith can create some really great pop tunes. Close to me, Why Can't I be You, Love Song, Lullaby, Lovecats. These are all just some really fun singles.
Actually my bad it's not a cathedral, it's a 12th century Augustinian monastery... Wikipedia:
The front cover, designed by former and future member Porl Thompson, is a picture of Bolton Priory in the village of Bolton Abbey in the fog.
But yeah I think the cover really captures the sentiment of the music - imagining yourself walking around ancient religious stonework in the misty rain, with that duh duh DUH duh duh duh drum beat from all cats are grey in the background... the haunting guitars... and the apathy in the vocals... chilling
