I'll be doing a weekly post concerning the album I have on heavy rotation throughout the week. For the first week, it seems fitting to post one of my favorite albums ever recorded. The Cure's Pornography is dark. I mean, there's dark, then there's this album. Often considered to be the beginning of the Cure's 'trilogy', this album is a hallucinogen driven descent in to utter madness. A drum machine kicks off the opening track '100 Years', followed by Robert Smith wailing "It doesn't matter if we all die…", effectively setting the tone for the rest of the album. Every track on the album is a vital piece of the whole, making their fourth album full of vital Cure tracks. Now that the weather's getting colder, so should the music.
I can't, in good conscience, suggest that you skip a single song on this album. But, if you're truly strapped for time and can choose only one song to get a feel for how the album is, check out 'The Hanging Garden'.
