believe it or not, i actually would rank this as one of my all-time favorite cure albums right next to head on the door & ofcourse disintegration. if you love the cure & all their moody love songs or simply can't resist hearing robert smith, you probably already know what i'm talking about. in fact, this could almost be served as a sequel of sorts or follow up to their masterpiece disintegration as it covers similiar territory & addresses that same sense of dread. while quite beautiful in some places & not utterly depressing by longshot, no one will ever admit to playing the cure cds for a crowd of party goers. having said that, robert smith still sounds as good as always does & the songs are a welcome return to the band's form. i don't really have any favorite songs on this particular cd & yet there are no tracks to skip. bloodflowers may be the best record that they've recorded in many years & easily gets constant rotation in my cd player.
I would recommend this to a friend
