Our Review

The Cure’s third album, 1981’s Faith, features a core trio responding to the chiseled minimalism of its predecessor, 1980’s Seventeen Seconds, with a deeper emotional resonance and carefully orchestrated keyboards from leader Robert Smith. Recorded at a time when the band was experimenting with drugs and still establishing itself as an iconoclastic voice, Faith is a thoroughly assured collection of fully-realized compositions that flirt with questions of faith, fate and somber, sobering realities. Yet unlike the emotional excesses that would lead the band to their future extreme heights, the songs here are intense, yet restrained. “Doubt” steps on the accelerator and points towards the Cure sound most familiar to its later fans. However, most of the cuts follow a solemn form. “All Cats Are Grey” posts an eternal yearn in its slow, protruding chords, while “The Funeral Party” marches through a wintry field as the voices echo in what sounds like a futile, existential void.

Customer Reviews

beautiful album (5 stars)
25 years later I'm an executive at a big company and still this is *the* album for me, the one i fell in love to, fell in love with, and return to for the memories. I guess I've met five or six people wildly different people in those same 25 years who felt the same way about "faith". Really, I think it's special, especially the title track.

Rainy. Contemplative. Questioning. A must-have. (5 stars)
This album shows its vinyl roots (in a good way). It unfolds in two chapters, one dark, rainy, and contemplative and the other much more bitter and questioning. Chapter one, with 4 strong A-side tracts, culminating in All Cats Are Grey and that perfect matter-of-fact somber and elegant keyboard outtro. Chapter 2, catharsis, death, and some sort of questioning dream-scape rebirth. A masterpiece perhaps.

The Most Depressing Album Ever Made (5 stars)
Despite a couple of rouge accounts that say Lou Reed's "Berlin"is the most depressing album ever made,the general flagship of musical doom and gloom is The Cure's "Pornography",a album so tainted even Robert Smith admits it's the most depressing album ever made.Which is why i believe that "Faith" is the most depressing."Pornography" is vivid,brooding,memorable."Faith"is none of those things.W

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as the Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith (born April 21, 1959), the band became notorious for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often hid the diversity of the Cure's music. At the outset, the Cure played jagged, edgy pop songs before slowly evolving into a more textured outfit. As one of the...
