Review

Simultaneously more accessible and ambitious than any of the Cure's previous albums, the double album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me finds Robert Smith expanding his pop vocabulary by tentatively adding bigger guitars, the occasional horn section, lite-funk rhythms, and string sections. It's eclectic, to be sure, but it's also a mess, bouncing from idea to idea and refusing to develop some of the most intriguing detours. Even if Kiss Me doesn't quite gel, its best moments -- including the deceptively bouncy "Why Can't I Be You?" and the stately "Just Like Heaven" -- are remarkable and help make the album one of the group's very best. [Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me was reissued as a double-disc deluxe edition in the summer of 2006 by Rhino. The first disc contains a remastered version of the album; the second disc contains rarities from its 1986 recording and the accompanying tour for its 1987 release. The first nine tracks on the disc are all instrumental demos, with the studio demos often sounding like the backing tracks to the finished versions; there are three rough mixes with guide vocals -- "A Thousand Hours," "Icing Sugar," and "One More Time" -- and finally, there are live versions in relatively high fidelity of "How Beautiful You Are," "The Snakepit," "Catch," "Torture," "Fight," and "Why Can't I Be You?" None of this bonus material is essential, but it is of interest for truly die-hard Cure collectors.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
