The Cure: a guide to their best albums

Metal Hammer

In a career spanning over 40 years, The Cure emerged from the wreckage of punk, helped launch the goth movement and ballooned into planet-conquering alt-rock titans. Along the way this creepy Crawley collective recorded some of the most diverse, perverse, sleepy-sad and sickly-sweet albums in the British rock canon. 

The shorthand caricature of The Cure’s sound would be Robert Smith’s pained whimper set to a gloomy backdrop, yet these perennial cult favourites have actually travelled a remarkably eclectic journey all over the musical map. Their opening suite of youthful albums was rooted in the monochrome angularity of post-punk, but during the 1980s they also embraced roaringly romantic pop, jazzy textures and super-sized stadium riff-monsters.
