The Cure

Disintegration is the eighth studio album by English alternative rock band The Cure, released on May 1, 1989. The record marks a return to the gloomy gothic rock style and introspective lyrics the band had established in the early 1980s, and is one of three quintessential Cure albums performed in entirety on the band's double live album, Trilogy. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic called it the "culmination of all the musical directions the Cure were pursuing over the course of the '80s."

    Listened to this CD again last night. Everytime I listen to it I am amazed at the completeness of this album. Listen and enjoy, I can’t imagine anybody that loves music being disappointed.

  3. gives it a: 5/5

    The perfect mix of their darker roots and the pop sound they were still developing.

    Hands down one of the best albums ever. Certainly the best in the Cure catalogue, and I would venture to put it up with some of the greatest albums from any artist. Thematically whole, sonically luscious and full, really just a joy to experience (though joy may be a bit of an oxymoron considering the dark tones of the album). You must own this album!
