The Cure - The Top album FLAC

The Top is the fifth studio album by British alternative rock band the Cure, released on 30 April 1984 by record label Fiction. It entered the UK Albums Chart at N°10 on 12 May. Shortly after its release, the Cure embarked on a major UK tour culminating with a three-night residency at the Hammersmith Odeon in London.

That said, it's still very much a Cure record. Heavy on the percussion and quaint keyboard effects that were so big in the '80s, the melodies ("The Caterpillar," "Shake Dog Shake") are unmistakably Robert Smith. The big change this time around is his ability to fuse the paranoia and neuroses of former work (Pornography) with his newfound use of pop melody and outside influences (. world travels, sounds, instruments) to moderate success ("Wailing Wall," "Piggy in the Mirror").

The Cure is ranked number 32 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 80,816. The Cure Faith Brand New 180g Vinyl LP Record Condition: New. Time left: 18m 12s. Ships to: Worldwide.

The Final Sound, A Forest (cause you’re not a fan if you don’t have Forest in top 10). One of the best bands that I’ve ever heard both live and in studio, hands down.

Mixed Up is a 1990 remix album by British rock band The Cure. The songs are remixes of some of their hits, reflecting the popularity of remixing of existing songs and dance culture of the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 2018, a sequel was released titled Torn Down. Most of the songs are extended mixes.
