    What’s so cool is that even acoustically, the Cure is the genesis of alternative. No computers, no sound machines, pure alternative genius. Each day I appreciate this band more, and I listened to the Cure from day one.

    I love everything. Sometimes I imagine the new sounds of their next album they will explore, the new atmosphere they will offer.
    To me, each time everything comes logically because it is already germinating inside the melodies.
    The only thing they have to do is to withdraw one of the numerous creative ideas and to emphasise it in order to see in which direction after they can go and how far with it.
    Their universe is vast. Elevation, spirituality. It is in the air now. They can explore mystery, reach mysticism. In the age of Aquarius.
    It can be electric, aerial, galactic, a music in a flow of energy. In the four or five dimension. Cristalline bodies. They can play with the invisible we all feel. The white light versus the darkness of space. La matière noire aussi. Belle thématique: les notions quantiques à visiter d’une façon artistique.
    The energies and the frequencies, vibrations from the elementals. Air, earth, water, fire. Colors and black or white. Clear voices and whispered lyrics. Contrasts and harmonies. Des superpositions d’échos lointains et/ ou rapprochés. Par exemple. Well. I am waiting something around these ideas. 😁😘😘😘🌹

      Was thinking the production is great, too! The drums and bass are totally tight and everything else falls into place off them. Everything sitting right where it should. I was never into them at the time, but gaining appreciation now.

    A Forest is one of my favorite songs by anyone, and I've been listening to pop music (and many other types) for 60 years. I like the electronic versions of it even more, especially the extended dance mix. Several years ago I visited the UK and only then discovered the song, having drifted away from The Cure for some time. I'll always fondly remember listening to it on headphones late at night in Edinburgh. Thanks for this great upload.

    Nunca me cansare de escucharlos desde 1980 son una de mis bandas favoritas con sutileza te transportan a esos momentos guardados en el corazón.
