Album artwork for Faith by The Cure

originally a goth-flavoured post-punk outfit, the cure evolved into one of the truly seminal bands of the '80s, and ultimately one of modern rock's most celebrated and influential acts. guided by creative visionary robert smith, the cure's signature sound balances a dreamy pop savvy with a dark, brooding majesty and fuses superbly crafted, literate songs with a feverish emotional intensity. the band's early catalog-newly remastered and expanded with a wealth of rarities-is a series of masterpieces that laid the groundwork for their phenomenal and enduring popularity. faith is a milestone for robert smith lyrically, branching out into questions of faith and spirituality he never quite touched on so well ever again. a depressing record, certainly, but also one of the most underrated and beautiful albums the cure put together. they would not touch on this sort of lush sadness so well again until 1989's disintegration.
