The back side of it says;
When the punk movement of 1977 is at its last noises, a provincial trio issues its first album, a sort of adolescent manifest at its origin.
The originality and the verve of these pop - songs with existentialist tendency don't leave many parts of the world indifferent. When the trend is to destroy uber alles, these three musicians united under the medicinal name of Cure, inject Camus and Shelley of their stylistic compositions.
All the ingredients of the rich and insatiable career of The Cure are contained inside this first work, particularly the melodic sensibility of its leader Robert Smith.
Evolver of a minimalist concept where the estethic research is made through sobriety, and through the harmonic entanglements of the latest albums, he didn't stop etching melopoeias carved following his moods and his nightmares.
Behind the endless Cure universe, he has the dreams and the tenacity of an artist to his ideals, and his unalterable thirst to create a musical style suitable to his emotions. Cure is - at the same time - virus and medicine for the therapy of Robert Smith.
