To hear the 1979 debut Three Imaginary Boys after becoming accustomed to The Cure of 2004's Curiosa and of this year's self-titled release is to see the growth of a deity arise and shape the music industry around their ideology.
Three Imaginary Boys wasn't paid much attention to when it was initially released, but it revealed the foundation of a musical revolution that is still unconditionally challenging the institution.
The Cure - Three Imaginary Boys (Deluxe Edition) - Elektra / Rhino Records - CD Deluxe Edition (705 words)
“Three Imaginary Boys” is not much more than the sum of its parts: voice, guitar, bass and drums with very little in the way of overdubs.
Interesting to note that this is the first time “Three Imaginary Boys” is appearing in its original running order on CD in the US.
It is interesting to note that the demos for songs that were eventually re-recorded for the “Three Imaginary Boys” album, are much more full sounding here with beefier, distorted guitars.
