Gone are the ill-advised brass and bare-faced chart aspirations of 1996's awful 'Wild Mood Swings', as are the flippant pop songs that commercialised The Cure in the mid-1980s. What we are left with is the dark, dense core of Smith's psyche, and a reminder that The Cure are at their fearsome best when creating soundscapes awash with uncertainty and dread.
AliceXJan 8, 2006Truly this is one of the most beautiful albums The Cure have ever produced. It combines the simple instruments and arranges them in such a way to create something complex and full. Many will frown upon this album - do not listen to them, listen to the album. It captures a curtian emotion that not everyone can grasp. It does not sound like the typical Cure albums. It is mature, more developed.… Expand
MarinaZAug 20, 2005A wonderfull album by the goth/rock masters!!!
SaraR.Nov 19, 2001This album is not only melodic to the point of beautiful, Robert Smith is the Shakespeare of our time. Awesome CD!
May 10, 2011Would have been the perfect album to end their career with but, we're all human so they went further than this.

DaveSOct 21, 2003While Bloodflowers doesn't tread huge amounts of new ground for The Cure, its a development of Disintegration and Wish that is as fantastic as most of their work. It builds up tonnes of atmosphere, Smith's voice is still as good as it was 20 years before. Its a brilliant, relaxing and ultimately sad album, which doesn't do much to suprise but is a solid, light affair that comes close to previous greats like Disintegration.… Expand
SteveH.Sep 8, 2002This is the worst album they have put out. It is slow and lacks enthuisiasm. I got the feeling the band needed to put this album out to make money at the expense (no pun) of creativity.… Expand
