Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

The Cure

1987
Fiction Records

Riding high on both a strong creative burn and steadily increasing attention around the world, especially in the US, the Cure created their longest album yet with Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, one of the few double albums of the 1980s to fully justify its existence stop to start. “Just Like Heaven” was their well-deserved US Top 40 breakthrough but the album is most remarkable for showing the band’s sheer range, from the polite funk “Hot Hot Hot!!!” to the slow burn of “The Kiss,” from the sweet shuffle of “Catch” to the writhing agony of “The Snakepit” and back again.
