Classic Albums #5 - Disintegration

"Disintegration is the best album ever!" This is, of course, a quote by Kyle on the classic Robert Smith episode on South Park. Although, its release is about 20 years ahead of my previous "Classic Albums", I think it easily deserves a spot on the list.

The first half of the album has most of the songs that you undoubtedly have come across: "Plainsong", "Pictures of You", "Love Song", "Lullaby". Robert Smith retains the dark moodiness and epic nature on the latter half though as wel. Here's downloads of "Fascination Street" and "The Same Deep Water As You", which I think sit among The Cure's greatest songs.

It was Kyle that said that on South Park. Cartman would've only said that to David Hasselhoff.

Thanks for the music too.

Ahh, this was one of my favorite albums in high school. It is definitely part of the darker cure collection. Another great album of theirs along the same lines was Faith. Check it out too. Here is a link to one of the best b-sides ever, it came from Faith.

this was one of my faves in high school also. i'm always surprised that more people don't know and love fascination street -- it's my favorite off the album and that bass still leaves me f*cking breathless.
