The Cure had established themselves as a dark and brooding band in the early 80s with albums such as Faith and Pornography. They broke away from this image with light pop singles, such as "Let's Go to Bed" and "The Lovecats" and their accompanying Tim Pope videos. The following albums The Top, The Head on the Door and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me had largely continued the pop experimentation, although all three showed elements of Smith's darker side, both musically and lyrically. Disintegration represented a return of the darker styles while still expanding on the newer concepts.[1][2] The Cure are an English rock band that formed in Crawley, Sussex in 1976. ...
