"The Cure, who've quietly become millionaires doing exactly as they please, are remarkable for their intelligence and ardour rather than pigheadedness and excess, for their wide-eyed curiosity rather than blinkered self-obsession, and for the clarity and ruthlessness of their vision." The Cure has spanned a lot of different moods as the band's traveled between Killing an Arab and Friday I'm in Love--we've seen bleak, spontaneously boppy, angry and whimsical--and it's been the poster child for misunderstood youth in black dress, but this site doesn't take the shallow way out and just show a bunch of eyeliner-heavy Robert Smith photos. The site's actually got a brain and features a lot of articles about the band and its history.
