Album artwork for Head On The Door. by The Cure

The Cure's 6th studio album from 1985 has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes and contains the hit singles 'inbetween days' and 'close to me'. the Cure refocused and ultimately hit their stride with 'the head on the door', producing an album which not only more effectively depicted gloom, but also showed enough pop smarts to make it memorable (and even danceable). the band scored a hit with the infectious, new order-ish 'in between days' (which even managed to beat new order at their own game) and the highly memorable 'close to me,' but the album's outstanding trait is its diversity - they managed to combine a wide variety of influences, not only that of contemporary dancefloor peers, but also by incorporating rhythms from the far east and South America to fine effect. the cure made more accomplished albums later on and had bigger hits, but none combined artistic ambition with really catchy songs as well as 'the head on the door'.
