General Comment It could be as Rob does seem to base some of his work on poems. This could blatantly be one of them. I, too, have found it hard, I have read a large majority but not all of Coleridge's poem.
It does have the same tone as these lyrics. I can't believe enough people didn't recognise that about that song that they were forced to change the words for the sake of political correctness! And anyway, even an illiterate thug ought to be able to tell that it's not actually advocating racism.
I think French Lit was his favourite subject in high school. Flag GwiberWyrdd on April 16, General Comment I always loved this song. I could never interpret or understand it, but the imagery and sounds alone could make me cry My Opinion "Struggling six legs held up for me to see" This sounds simultaneously 1 sexy and 2 like he's shagging a spider.

SongMeanings is a place for discussion and discovery. User does not exist. But the other half, consisting of songs that sound like the kind of "safe", bland pop effluvia that you'd hear in a Starbucks, indulge what must've been Robert's not-so-secret-anymore fantasy of becoming a shameless pop star. Wish's pop songs have, in general, far less in the way of personality. But, while Wish definitely falls into that category of Cure albums that sound unfocused, it's not the all-over-the-map patchwork of Kiss Me or the Top.
In the end, Wish is quite a dichotomy, with two fairly distinct personalities, and winds up being a frustrating record because of it. The three guitarists playing through myriad fuzz boxes and wah-wah pedals sound was a bit of a new angle for them, and could've been more compelling were it not undercut by all the lightweight fluff.
But I also think Wish suffers from something more basic - a drop in songwriting quality, as many of the melodies and chord progressions verge or dive headfirst A Foolish Arrangement - The Cure - The Complete B-Side Collection 1987-1992 (CD) the generic. The album actually gets off to a pretty decent start before descending into what was at that point, IMO, their worst album to date by a considerable margin. Open fits in with the more guitar-heavy songs, and it's kind of a cool and catchy track.
I wish they'd mined this sound throughout more of the album, because here, at least, it kind of works. I actually think High is the best of the poppier material, and is a nice enough track, even though to me it sounds a bit like something the Cocteau Twins of whom I'm a massive fan had already done better on one of their more recent, poppier albums.
This song is far from stellar, but far from terrible. Apart is one of the exceptions A Foolish Arrangement - The Cure - The Complete B-Side Collection 1987-1992 (CD) the guitar-heavy rock vs.
Speaking of Disintegration, Deep Green Sea, one of the more guitar-heavy tracks, kind of replicates the structure and overall vibe of the song Disintegration, with its repetitive chord progression, epically dense sound, and energetic vibe. But the melody just doesn't grab me.
Wendy Time - kind of catchy, definitely in the pop mold, but ultimately forgettable. Doing the Unstuck - a very guitar-heavy pop song whose melodies just don't do much for me. At this point in the album I start to feel like, overall, the melodies just sound kind of generic, and that the songwriting's just not there.
Friday I'm In Love - by far the stupidest and most offensively nagging song they'd done to date. Does Robert actually like this song? Or does he just churn crap like this out because it pays the bills? He'd done plenty of catchy radio-friendly pop songs in the past, but those were, for the most part, still quite tasteful and original. This is just an unforgivably bland and totally shameless attempt at topping the charts.
Trust - another song that sounds really generic despite obviously aiming for big emotional impactlike it could've been knocked out by the Cranberries, or any number of those sort of fluffy "alternative" pop bands that started emerging in the early-to-mids. A Letter to Elise - yawn. Cut - C'mon guys! Make up your minds! Do you want to go for that dense, swirling, guitar-heavy sound with three guitarists banging away through fuzz boxes and wah-wah pedals?
Or do you want to become a cuddly, inoffensive pop band for the Starbucks crowd? To Wish Impossible Things - I can appreciate the textures of the instruments and the overall vibe they're going for here, but the melodies, yet again, just sound tired and uninspired.
We've kind of heard this before, and we've heard it done much better. End - meh. So there you have it. An album with a glimmer of potential that is ultimately squandered by a slew of very "meh" and a few very "blech" moments.
I'll tackle the b-sides in another post. As others have mentioned, some of the b-sides from this era were better than much of what wound up on the album. Pavol StromcekJun 25, MatthewK likes this. Location: Portugal. CarloxJun 25, I reread my own review after reading thoutah's description of Trust BTW, that should be "low" not "slow" piano lines in case anyone hasn't figured it out!
I don't hear anything "generic" about it maybe as The Cure are concerned, but at least they do it in a creative and emotionally compelling way but then I'm probably coming in from a different angle as I don't know any Cranberries. But A Foolish Arrangement - The Cure - The Complete B-Side Collection 1987-1992 (CD) you like Homesick, what's there not to like about Trust not that I'm saying the two are equals, mind, but I still really like it on its own terms?
I don't agree with some who think that the Wish-era b-sides are across-the-board amazing. This Twilight Garden - I really dig this one. I like the swirling, watery sound; I dig the cool, understated melodies; and I'm left feeling totally perplexed as to why such a good song didn't make it onto Wish.
Play - A decent effort, sounding a bit like a Disintegration-era outtake with its prominent six-string bass leads and O'Donnell-esque synths filling out the sound. Not amazing, but nice. Halo - See, this is a good example of a Cure pop song that is tasteful, unique, and distinctive. And yet it's a b-side to one of the worst songs in their catalog. This song reminds me of Kiss Me - I could totally imagine it somewhere on the second disc, on side 3 or 4. I remember the local alternative radio station in San Francisco at the time Live played this song quite a lot, which was nice.
The station evidently got quite a few requests for it, which really isn't a surprise since it's so much better than any of the Wish-era A-sides. Scared As You - This one's just so-so. Sounds more like a Wish track than the preceding three b-sides.
The Big Hand - Not bad, per se, but sounds like a vague amalgam of things they'd done better previously. A Foolish Arrangement - A decent song, not bad, but not amazing. Nice guitar sounds.
I don't know if this would necessarily save Wish, per se - it'd still be a comparatively weak album - but it would make it a lot better. Location: Pacific NW. Wish was an album I SO wanted to love, and just never got into. I was always irked that some the best songs were relegated to b-sides. I still love the entire back catalog up to Disintegration, but for me, Wish marked the end of an era for the Cure. Location: UK. IMO it would have been better for the Cure to end after Disintergration.
Everything after that tarnishes their reputation although they could still play amazing shows. Bands go on for too long. It shouldn't be a career. It's funny how as the 60's became the 70's a lot of great bands really lost it creatively, as they run out of ideas and become irrelevant with changes in music styles. I think the same thing happened at the end of the 80's.
There were just too many great bands with new sounds like MBV coming through. Jim B. It was a let down, but the shade of Disintegration didn't help. I felt dissapointed when it came in, but that wasn't because I had any hopes for a Disintegration part II. I had been fooled before enough to expect U turns from Robert, and Mixed Up prepared me for what what coming, A Foolish Arrangement - The Cure - The Complete B-Side Collection 1987-1992 (CD). As someone said, the main problem of this album is its lack of focus.
I could have tolerated a straight forward pop album much more. The new guitar sound wasn't a great achievement too, and was seen as a pathetic sold out to the then rising alternative movement.
Frankly, I then said ok, I spent 3 years for practically just a couple of truly memorable moments, but hey, no one can say there is not going to be another great album A Foolish Arrangement - The Cure - The Complete B-Side Collection 1987-1992 (CD) soon unfortunately, there wasn't. I went back to Wish about two months ago, mainly because I thought I might have been unfair with in back in and because I wanted to revisit it on preparation for The Cure's concert in Santiago heavily based on Wish.
To my surprise, I found out that the album has aged well, and songs like Apart, Open, Edge of and High showed new interesting perspectives. After these 20 years I consider Wish a good record, sometimes flawed, but anyway the last time The Cure tried to develop some new ideas. IzozelesJun 25, Pavol Stromcek likes this. Pavol StromcekJun 26, Izozeles likes this. Location: On your screen. I think Wish is The Cure's best album.
I'm surprised by the negativity surrounding it. One of the things I love about the album are the B-sides. They are like little satellite albums hovering about the main album.
Add one more track to each and they work as EPs. Using the same analogy, Show and Paris are like neighbouring planets. I like to visit them often, but always return to Wish!
One thing that was forgotten is the additional High single on clear vinyl with different 'remixes' of Open and High. For some reason I remember them as different performances, not simply remixes. I'd have to listen again to confirm this. Anyone know? Harvest Your ThoughtsJun 26, Location: Hobart, Australia.
I am still startled they made a record as good as Disintegration in - Wish is an album which leaves me similarly blank to Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me. Twelve undistinguished tracks from a "new Cure" clearly focused on breaking stadium America was not even noteworthy enough to be a disappointment. I borrowed it, listened for a week and gave it back. I don't think I've heard it since Robert gets a lifetime pass from me for pluspeerless and wonderful, but there's nothing further I need if he's mining the same seam with diminishing returns.
I would very much like to hear him kick over the traces and try something weird, though. A Blue Sunshine for the 21st century would get my attention. MatthewKJun 26, Echo likes this.

The first five songs on this CD are obviously taken from vinyl. All of the other songs on here are from CD sources. Awsome quality. The Big Hand and A Foolish Arrangement were only available in the UK single A Letter To Elise, so it is good to get them together, because I recall seeing that CD single going for over 12 dollars..
