Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Cure: Robert Smith (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Simon Gallup (bass); Laurence Tolhurst (drums).
  • Engineers: Mike Hedges, Graham Carmichael, David Kemp.
  • If you ever observed (or were) a pale depressed-looking teenager dressed entirely in black, sitting in the corner scribbling frantically into a marble bound notebook, then you already understand the Cure. In the 1980s, the Cure provided the soundtrack for an entire generation of misfit toys, and if SEVENTEEN SECONDS was a wake-up call for the dispossessed, FAITH is the daily affirmation. Scaled back down to a three-piece with the loss of keyboardist Hartley, the Cure is a lean, mean fighting machine, ready to rumble.
  • "Rumble" is the best way to describe the propulsive bass playing of Simon Gallup, whose rolling bass anchors both mid-tempo numbers like "The Drowning Man" and faster fare such as "Primary." While no new ground is broken ("Doubt" is basically a rewrite of "Play for Today"), FAITH is stunning in its simplicity and haunting beauty, as evidenced by "All Cats Are Grey" and "The Funeral Party." Even drummer and mascot Lol Tolhurst's minimal beats work to perfection next to the spare-yet-effective instrumentation of "Faith." This is quintessential Cure.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.109) - "'Primary' is as catchy as anything Ian Curtis managed."

Uncut (p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]here's a warmth and meditative quality to Smith's production and songwriting..."

Alternative Press (11/01, p.104) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Goth Albums" - "...Epitomizes the Cure's sense of gravitas...It's short, but the earth stands still regardless."
