  • STANDING ON THE BEACH compiled The Cure's singles from 1979 to 1986, cuts from Cure classics such as BOYS DON'T CRY, PORNOGRAPHY, and HEAD ON THE DOOR. The singles period between 1987 to 1997, chronicled on GALORE, runs from KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME up to and including WILD MOOD SWINGS. Unlike STANDING ON THE BEACH, GALORE contains a previously unreleased single, "Wrong Number," a song that mixes standard Cure-isms with electronica. No great stretch, seeing as how Robert Smith and company produced their most popular songs by blending Eighties dance club music and The Cure's unique blend of mysterious lyricism and sexual anxiety. GALORE marks a period in the band's history that saw them move away from gloom-rock in favor of danceable-but-still-twisted pop. This collection should make any Cure fan happy, or at least as happy as any Cure fan can get.
Professional Reviews
Spin (1/98, pp.114-115) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a reminder that there was a time when a fey, smudged, roly-poly fright wig could break your heart..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/12/97, p.91) - "...When they try to be funky...they seem forced and corny. But when they stick to gothic guitar drones...their optimism is endearing..." - Rating: B
