No. And fascination street is one of the best songs ever

Wish is alright. Bloodflowers is pretty underrated. The rest, not so much.

>>61949100
only Bloodflowers

Some people seem to really enjoy Bloodflowers. I can't say though, because I'm still working my way though their discography. Right now Disintegration, Pornography, and Faith are my favorites. I think Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me has great moments as well. I just started getting into The Cure last week though.

He writes great pop songs so he hits the mark sometimes. It's all worth a shot

youre best bet for any band shirt is just to search online. Always cheaper if unofficial off amazon. You can get a kraftwerk shirt straight from the band and fly it over for $35 + Shipping or a $10 identical knockoff from amazon.


As for OP, The Cure has this magical ability to sound pretty much the same throughout their career. Many songs can be interswapped on their albums. Kinda samey-samey, but if you really like it, each one is memorably different.
I wouldnt say one period is drastically better than another. Some might seem uninspired and forgettable, but not bad, and easily a good thing to listen to for when you want "more of the same but not just the same album again"

Depeche turned more bluesy. If you want something inspired by their electronic era, try Assemblage 23. Better end of the futurepop genre, but the guy tried a bit too much to conform to futurepop. Try the song "Over and Out" and youll def see a depeche influence in the vocals:

Im a bigger fan of Covenant even tho the singer just wants to be Bowie:

and of course VNV nation exists..

as for more rock band formats, many of them were pretty costumey back then. Hard to get into now cuz that mood and motif is pretty dead. If you still want new wave, try The Eden House. Its with revolving members (every song having a diff lineup) made of people from old new wave bands.. Kinda supergroup-ish but not many names youd recognize:
heres somthing from them right up your alley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uJPbL6LwWk

The album Robert Smith did with Siouxsie and the Banshees is so much better than any Cure album besides maybe disintegration
