Default What Cure album should i listen to next?

So ive listened to The head on the door, and i thought it was great. however, being the indecisive and clueless person i am, i have idea which album(s) i should listen to next.

I was thinking either Pornography or Disintegration but i have no clue.

if your only point of reference is Head On Door & you liked it, i'd just go upward chronologically to Disintegration (so Kiss Me x3 then Disint)

then it's kind of free game from there

Disintegration, then Wish. Then, I'd say get into Seventeen Seconds and such.

Faith is my favourite, part of the trilogy that starts with 17 Seconds and ends with Pornography.

Faith has some great songs but it's the sound of the thing which is amazing. That bass just goes through you. All Cats Are Grey is probably my favourite track on it.

17 Seconds is really good too. You gotta have A Forest.

Faith is my favorite of those 3 early depressing albums, but the mid-80s to early-90s period is the Cure "sweet spot" for me

Yeah, I would say hit up everything between & including Head on the Door and Wish. That's their best material, and there's enough going on between all of them that you'll get a good idea of the different moods the band could pull off. Then, look through the rest of the discography depending on what mood you want to explore next. If you're looking for the gloominess of Disintegration (which is the best album of all time, fwiw), check out Seventeen Seconds, Faith, and Pornography. If you like how lush some of Wish is, go for Bloodflowers and the newer albums. If you like their more oddball moments, The Top also has so much to offer. This is a great band and you're so lucky you still get to listen to a lot of this stuff for the first time.

Favorite Cure album is typically Faith, but it's really impossible to say Disintegration isn't their best. Just, holy shit.

that's gotta be their most hit & miss album ever, in a similar category with 4.13 & The Top in that even with the misses it is worth at least a few listen to find yer preferred hits

i guess Kiss Me x3 qualifies for that categorization as well, tho i'd say the hit ratio was quite a bit higher in that one's case

Listening to WMS is like listening to MTAE. Sure could do it, maybe even learn to like it, but with all of the good music in the world, why bother?

Anything post-Wish is a waste of precious lifetime.
