A certain proverb springs to mind: "Good things come to those who wait"..

I TOTALLY AGREE!!! This band has knocked themselves out for us. When you look at the quality of the printed materials and artwork and research that goes into those deluxe editions - not to mention all the compiling and tweaking of all the old tapes and such - it takes SO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT. That stuff doesn't just materialize out of thin air, beautifully pulled-together with so many little artistic and personalized details. A lot of love and hard work went into creating all this. It wasn't just slapped together by some ad agency or made to fit a standard record label template. The band, and Robert especially, have done a remarkable job once again, extending their art all the way through its final distribution to us. Looking at their new site or opening up one of their beautifully-printed booklets to read the liner notes fills me with joy and leaves me grinning from ear-to-ear!

just had time for a super quick look....at yet.
|5/14/2010 1:55 AM (GMT-04:00)|
Oh that's gorgeous Kim, thanks for that link!
I have to again comment on how great this track SOUNDS!!! To fattyowls' point, I'm not saying that the sound quality in the past hasn't been good- not at all. I'm struck by how spectacularly crisp these tracks sound.

I couldn't resist the vinyl version when I started thinking about how gorgeous all the official Cure pressings are - and all their printed materials as well. I'm very curious to hear both formats and I can't wait to hold them in my hands!!! :)LA Lovecat wrote:kim.cola wrote:

Thanks for posting the direct links for each of the alternative rarities, FindHer.
|5/15/2010 8:23 PM (GMT-04:00)|
cant wait to get it! and the website rocks!
|5/15/2010 8:58 PM (GMT-04:00)|
Here's the other section.
|5/16/2010 4:22 PM (GMT-04:00)|
Thank you very much FindHer! Especially for the link to download the demo for The Same Deep Water As You! That's my favorite one of all these tracks. It's SO BEAUTIFUL IT BREAKS MY HEART. I love that music so much, but this version is just achingly touching. I think the flanger (guessing) on the bass in this version makes it sound almost like a quivering voice - like when someone's trying to speak while crying. I absolutely love how it sounds here. I can't stop listening to it.

I actually didn't download (save the files) in that first set of links you posted, FindHer, and those URLs are now "forbidden" so I'm very glad I didn't. I'm reluctant to save any files that weren't specifically designated/labeled by the band as being "gifts for download" - but view them more as "gifts for listening".
The second set of links you posted is still working, but I'd feel better about it if there were something on the actual disintegration site that said, "download these songs here" rather than going the backdoor route. I don't want to assume that they're cool with it - and be part of posting the backdoor/download links here on their own site - when that might not be what they intended at all.
sorry guys :(

I think that they will postpone the release of the other music section . . .
|5/17/2010 1:57 PM (GMT-04:00)|
I think you're right Bobby. IMHO, it's pretty lame that another Cure "fan" site (not referring to yours) is offering these downloads when the band's site is not. Just because the songs weren't secured there for a few days doesn't mean the band intended for them to be downloaded. I think that if they wanted the songs to be available for download, they'd state that clearly: "download samples here". Robert has been fairly outspoken about where he stands on this issue, so it's just really surprising to me that "fans" would post free downloads of his music that he, himself, is not yet ready to offer. It might be valuable, "exclusive" content at this point, but at a minimum it's disrepectful to the band to release something that they clearly do NOT want to release yet.
The best of all worlds might be to find a way to "lock the back doors" for downloading and probably be very clear about what is available from the band as free samples for download. Then you'd maintain that direct, band-audience relationship without creating opportunities for third parties. Much easier said than done, I'm sure. I just hate for there to be ill feelings and/or awkwardness between the band and the audience about such things. It gets in the way of loving the music.

I don't understand why they don't just use streaming ?
That must be to hard for Geffen ...

wwwTheCureca wrote:Noooo nooo I definitely was NOT referring to your site. Those songs being available like that may have been a simple oversight. There are so many details to look at with a launch like this. And they're juggling so many other balls in the air right now with other projects, too. It's impossible for us on the outside to know exactly what happened. The fact that those files are now disabled just makes me feel badly because it seems like "we", the public, may have helped ourselves to something that wasn't freely given in the first place. :(LA Lovecat wrote:wwwTheCureca wrote:

Don't feel guilty, they should know what they do... they get paid by The Cure to do the right thing (wrong most of the time, but Hey ! I'm just a «customer»). Else they should check with REAL professional if they are not able to do it right.
|5/17/2010 4:42 PM (GMT-04:00)|
Thanks for trying to make me feel better, Bobby. :)
|5/17/2010 9:08 PM (GMT-04:00)|
Mmm.. maybe to solve this 'problem' Robert should have made them available for legal download from the get go..

Speaking of grabbing,
|5/20/2010 9:20 AM (GMT-04:00)|

So, you can same it for yourself and don't let anyone know about this.

Got the cd and vinyl version, not listened to yet . Not even listened to the ones on the site :(
|5/31/2010 7:30 PM (GMT-04:00)|
They updated the flash, now it's stream only. So get yourself a recorder... By the way, I listened to Dallas (a full 97.2MB mp3) show in my car on my lunch time, it was nice.
|5/31/2010 9:36 PM (GMT-04:00)|
Yes, THANK YOU ROBERT!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

fingers crossed that you get it tomorrow! My vinyl arrived same day as the cd, which I was surprised at as I ordered it pretty much last minute. I need to buy a second copy of the vinyl so I can open one and keep one sealed ;-)

Disintegration has re-entered the UK album chart at number 68 (the deluxe version)!!!!

I ordered the IMPORT version - the UK pressing of the CD. Originally it seemed like I was going to receive it later than everyone else who ordered the North American pressing. I received it on June 2nd and have been listening to it almost nonstop. I'm still waiting on the vinyl.
I LOVE all the instrumental demo versions and the live recordings are just sublime. Pirate Ships is really touching, and the alternate instrumental versions of The Same Deep Water As You, Disintegration, Fear Of Ghosts, Babble and Untitled are GORGEOUS. I smile SO BIG listening to all those instrumentals.
I love being able to hear the instruments and not have my mind's focus distracted by the words - nothing against the lyrics or Robert's voice - I just like to have these alternate versions to listen to as well. It's really challenging to not sing along with his vocals - even if it's only in one's mind. Those instrumental tracks are really something extra special for Cure lovers. I love that trippy, Twilight Zone version of Fascination Street! The whole box is just a feast for one's mind and soul! Damn I love The Cure.
And Noheart with that bit of silliness at the beginning is a very special gift. :) THANK YOU ROBERT!!!!

really really great!!!!

I have now had a chance to give a close listen to the remastered Disintegration and I'm so enjoying the rarities disk so much AND now I have a second Entreat album to enjoy...I have been listening to Entreat at bedtime for years...now there are two versions to choose from.
|6/15/2010 5:32 AM (GMT-04:00)|
the new site is AMAZING!!!!! and Disintegration Deluxe is GREAT!!!
|6/15/2010 6:32 AM (GMT-04:00)|
It certainly is the best one of all of them!
