Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me is the seventh studio album by British alternative rock band The Cure, released in 1987 (see 1987 in music). This album put The Cure into the American mainstream, and was followed with another highly successful album in 1989 entitled Disintegration. It was originally a double album, and was also released on a single CD. The album was made for CD, as Robert Smith wanted to take advantage of the CD's storage capabilities, which was almost double that of a two sided record. As such, this is the first Cure album to go over an hour (Approx 74 minutes), as opposed to the normal 30-45 minutes. In fact, one track had to be removed from the original album, due to time and space restrictions, on the CD. Cover for album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me by The Cure. ...

Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me is a great example of the invention of Robert Smith & Co- perhaps it's a schizophrenic affair, then again that's probably what I like about it.
The Kiss is a gloomy, moody, gory tale of self-rehabilitation.
Smith sings "you nail me to the floor and push my guts all inside out" as he is trying to get a past flame out of his head by demonising her.
