    I just want Wish remastered and reissued on vinyl.. and Lost Wishes/demos in better quality and/or on streaming and could not care less if CD's aren't profitable anymore. I only got the Mixed Up 3CD because I felt obligated to add it to all the others, so I'll probably give in and also buy the Wish one. Next year just makes too much sense for the 30th anniversary. So with that being said, it probably won't happen until 2025.

    Don't forget the deep-knee rock squats. Seven or eight at a time, in a row.

    4:13 Dream was utter shit. There are people who complained about WMS being a subpar album but I can find plenty of songs on that album that are good, and the B sides are especially great. S/T had a lot of whiners as well but outside of the shitty pop songs on that album, theres a lot of dark/heavy songs on there which still sound fresh to this day. Once again, the B sides are amazing and those lost demo songs from that era are amazing (Please Come Home, A Boy I Never Knew, Strum)...But outside of 'Underneath The Stars', I can't find one thing redeemable about 4:13 Dream. It seems like a very weak attempt at trying to recreate Head on The Door.

    I'm not a huge fan, but i don't think it's "utter shit", the album was passable.
    Some of it's songs have grown on me over the years ("Freakshow", "Sleep when i'm Dead", "The Hungry Ghost"), the rest is just "Ok".
    I do agree that "Wild Mood Swings" is miles better...

    Even if WMS is probably weaker than older albums, 1996 was, for me, the best Cure tour ever ! It was nearly the first tour we can't know at all which songs you gonna listen to live ? It was one of the first tour where it made sense to see plenty of shows.

    It was a great tour for Forever (can't remember clearly but was played something like 5 or 10 times, mainly in Europe).

    I was hoping the same for the Dream tour. I was also a really powerful tour but the main set was boring after 3 or 4 shows. Encores were fabulous even if after the first song we can clearly know the complete encore without any doubt (17s, Faith or Pornography part !).

    Has anyone else found this performance a little... awkward sounding?

    And I wonder why they picked to play that song?
