Hooray - finally getting the recognition they deserve
Wow...it's like the eighties and the (early) nineties all over again. After a gap of about fifteen years, The Cure are back on the cover of NME! And they're going to get the Godlike Geniuses Award from the NME next year. It seems like a far cry from the days when the NME was either slagging them for being hasbeens or not writing about them at all...hopefully Echo and the Bunnymen will get their due next (perhaps to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Ocean Rain)
Their new album 4:13 Dream is fantastic, definitely a four an a half star album, IMHO.
And assuming this works, this will enable you to check out some of the tracks off the new album.
