The Unknown: The Cure's Disintegration Alternate Rarities & Disintegration Live in Dalla
Not only is the Cure's Disintegration one of the best Cure album (honestly, it's really just the best). Not only is it one of the greatest alternative albums of the 80s. Not only is it one of the 10 best albums of the past 30 years. It is one of the greatest albums of all time. Don't take my word for it...even South Park agrees. And South Park doesn't like anything. If they're praising something instead of insulting it...then it has to be good.
I once heard a drunk guy claim that the Cure's Disintegration was the alternative Dark Side of the Moon. And instead of blowing him off for being crazy...I thought about it...and agreed. It is that good.
This week the Cure sets to release their pivotal musical zenith in a 3CD set. A remastered version, a disc of rarities, and the full version of Entreat, which has only been available in an abridged version on Import. But that's not all. Robert Smith himself has a gift for all the loyal fans. He has posted 2 free extra Disintegration albums. A second album of rarities and another live concert from the Prayer Tour, this one in Dallas.
Is there ever such a thing as too much Cure? The answer is always no.
Here are two free albums from the Cure. These are not my links...so I'm sending you to the Chain of Flowers blog who is hosting them.
