Scans from the Melody Maker and N.M.E. circa 1987-1996
Quite a sniffy review for Disintergration. I always thought this was the last really decent album The Cure made.
The harsh criticism in this review seams rather surprising if you bear in mind that they voted this record as their “Album Of The Year” only half a year later. They then described it as “a deep, lush, brooding music that served to frame Smith’s vocal vulnerability with tarnished perfection.”. Of course there’s always a difference to be made between the opinion of a single writer and that of the whole editorial staff. But in my view the discrepancy shouldn’t be as big as in this case.
Thanks for this, and a big thank you for this excellant website. Its only flaw is the lack of 70s and 80s stuff. When i think of all those NME and Sounds i threw in the dustbin!!
Still a great site though. cheers
