Agree with notkristie and also a bit unfair to "compare" it to a Cure album. Maybe unfair is not a good word but it's not really like Cure music. That being said, it is a fabulous effort and of course I only like it when Robert is singing. Sorry Jeanette.
I do prefer the original album without the demo versions on the extra disc. I think I got used to it like that & hearing Bob sing those songs makes it a smidge harder not to slap a The Cure label on it. Sex-Eye-Make-Up is an utterly brilliant piece of work
