The Top by The Cure
Released: May 1984
Label: Rhino/Elektra
Holy cliche! Band under duress takes many drugs and creates over-stuffed psychedelic mess-terpiece. The transition between post-punk Cure and "about to take over the world" Cure, The Top has plenty of ideas, some fine tunes ("The Caterpillar" is another great single), Robert Smith's marble-mouthed yowling, and lyrics like "I could be a polar bear." This special edition features a bonus disc of demos, concert clips and rare numbers.
