Inspired by an article on the Far Out magazine site (weird site), what is your least favorite Cure record? I've included EPs & compilations as there are, how you say, issues with some of them. Do your worst! In a close call, I went with Hypnagogic States in a close race with 4:13 Dream. Some of it is just so, so wrong!
BUT, you put Hypnagogic State in your list of possible choice. So I guess i'll choose this.
Hypnagogic State is to me the worst release by The Cure by far! But it's (thankfully, just) an e.p. I think all 4 remixed are bad, really bad, and the 5th one is even worst. The four songs are not even made related in the remix by the beat or vibe or anything at all, there has been no effort in making a transition. It's meaningless. The lack of work ruins even the initial concept of what they intend to do, that is remixing the four songs into one long track. I think it's the only record I can stop before it's finished because I can't stand to listen to it any longer. I try, sometimes I try, but no...

4:13 Dream for me too. I like a lot of the songs on there but unfortunately, on the other side of the coin there are a lot on there I don't like. To me, there's too much "widdly widdly" from Porl which makes them sound samey-samey, the lyrics aren't there, and the vocal melodies aren't "stick in your mind and sing your heart out" like in previous albums. Also, why why why did they change the titles of the three songs to Freakshow, The Only One and It's Over??? wah!
