The Cure ‎– The Top. Etichetta: Fiction Records ‎– fixs9. Formato: Vinyl, LP, Album. Paese: UK. Uscita: Apr 1984. Is there such a thing as a US pressing of this album that has the custom artwork labels AND the custom inner sleeve? It seems like every copy I’ve seen has just one or the other. Rispondi Avvertimi Helpful.

That said, it's still very much a Cure record. Heavy on the percussion and quaint keyboard effects that were so big in the '80s, the melodies ("The Caterpillar," "Shake Dog Shake") are unmistakably Robert Smith. The big change this time around is his ability to fuse the paranoia and neuroses of former work (Pornography) with his newfound use of pop melody and outside influences (. world travels, sounds, instruments) to moderate success ("Wailing Wall," "Piggy in the Mirror").

The Top-a collection of oddities representing a beautiful tangent in The Cure’s album catalogue, closes out with the languid off-kilter sauntering jazz of its title track, that is an unsettling mishmash of textured minimalism structured around repetitive drum and bass that fades into oblivion.

The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), reached number forty-four on the UK Albums Chart. The next two albums, Seventeen Seconds (1980) and Faith (1981), were top 20 hits in the UK, reaching number twenty and number fourteen respectively

Lyrics to "The Top" song by The Cure: I don't care If only I could say that And not feel so sick and scared I don't care If only I could . .It's jesus brilliant You used to laugh Walking these gorgeous blocks This top is the place Where nobody goes You just imagine You just imagine it all. Every day I lie here And know that it's true All I really want is you Please come back Please come back Like all the other ones do. Please come back All of you. Submit Corrections.
