    By the way, what’s everyone’s opinion of the best soundboard recordings of Step Into The Light and It Can Never Be The Same?
    great songs

    Not sure if there are any. Not really any SBDs have made it out of any shows the past 4 or 5 years

    Not enough to get me out there, but yes yes and more yes to Chelsea Wolfe being part of that. Fuck yes.

    *edit: also doesn't seem like Throwing Muses do an awful lot anymore so that's interesting to see that name there

    Torn between getting tickets since I also love The Twilight Sad and Chelsea Wolfe. Do you guys think they'll do a proper U.S. tour or is this gonna be it?

    I think RS was recently quoted as saying no US tour until 2020 after the new album is out.

    Take that with as many grains of salt as will fit into the whole damn shaker.

    I bought tickets to the festival and am flying from the east coast to see it. The last time I had the chance to see the cure was maybe five years ago I was living in Portland, OR and they had a show on my birthday and I was in Maui with my EX wife haha. I need a vacation anyway and have never been to CA. Hopefully the Deftones will pull out their cover of If only tonight we could sleep . Never seen the cure but have been a fan for 25+ years

    First Disintegration show is in the bag.

    On a related note, I’d have given a limb to have been there.

    I live in Sydney and am not going to any of the shows because of the stupid fucking ballot system to get tickets. Applied, was unsuccessful for every show.

    Saw they played Burn as an encore. Only played that a few times now, right? I apparently saw it's first ever performance that magical weekend in Nola for Voodoo Fest 2013. PJ, NIN & The Cure headlined.

    I really need to listen to more of their albums. I bought Pornography and I really loved it. Any good suggestions?

    i would go directly backwards chronologically and listen to Faith, as i think it's the closest in their discography to sounding anywhere near as dark as Pornography does (they're my two favorite cure albums)

    They’re one of those bands where the b-sides are just as good as (or sometimes better than, see: This Twilight Garden, Play, This Morning, Ocean, etc.) the album tracks. Get the Join The Dots 4-disc set for a pretty comprehensive b-side compilation.

    Pornograpghy might be my favorite by them. It's so dark, and cold and abrasive at times. I'd probably go to Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me next . It does have lighter moments on it like Just like heaven. Or I'd go back further in the catalog and listen to Seventeen seconds or Faith.

    This is good advice. One weird thing about the Cure is, aside from the b-sides collection which is a really good spread of their styles over time, and generally really really strong too (with some exceptions: the Doors covers), none of the "best-of" style collections do a good job of getting across what they are doing on their albums. E.g. despite collecting 3 songs from Disintegration, you get nothing of the atmosphere of Disintegration on "Greatest Hits". "Standing on a beach" is a bit better (IMHO singles collections are generally better than "best-of" collections anyway because it shows you what the group did no matter what the contemporary take on that might be) but only covers the first half or so of their career. (But at least doesn't skip over Faith and Pornography entirely, like "greatest hits")

    So grab "Join The Dots"

    Fun fact nobody cares about: My intro to the cure was more-or-less "Join The Dots", before it was released: In about 2001 I tried to steal anything Cure I could from "AudioGalaxy" in order to learn more about them (the Napster of that time, briefly). But AudioGalaxy let labels/artists blacklist certain songs/albums/etc, so all the main run of Cure stuff was not available, which left only the b-sides. So my introduction was Ocean, Dredd Song, Halo, Fear of Ghosts, 2 Late, Burn, Adonais, etc., basically the "Join the Dots" tracklist.
