Good interview and performance clips. The new tunes are pretty good, with propulsive bass and less of a morbid tone than you might expect from The Cure.
One qualm with the interviews: The Cure’s personnel have been relatively steady over the past 15 years or so. No one in the band now has less than a decade of experience playing with Robert Smith. It’s hardly a solo project.
Robert Smith is a terrific interview, open and honest. I don’t buy his annual “this is the last Cure album” moan, but aside from that, it’s great to hear from him. I hope it’s not the last Cure album.
