They can't pull it off today the way they used to in 1992... unfortunately. I must say it had its fantastic moments in each year until that year. Of course 1992 was outstanding, but it should be pointed out that the frantic, 10 minute versions between 1986 and 1989, especially 1987 were just as amazing and wild.
'The' The Cure song. Finding meaning, in a meaningless world. Perhaps, influenced by Camus' notion of the Absurd. This passage from Leo Tolstoy's 'A Confession' has a similar line of thought..."Had I simply understood that life had no meaning I could have borne it quietly, knowing that that was my lot. But I could not satisfy myself with that. Had I been like a man living in a wood from which he knows there is no exit, I could have lived; but I was like one lost in a wood who, horrified at having lost his way, rushes about wishing to find the road. He knows that each step he takes confuses him more and more, but still he cannot help rushing about".
To put these complex ideas into an incredible atmospheric song with that racing heartbeat bassline is just so impressive.
