Najboljih 100 pesama grupe THE CURE - lični izbor



Robert Smit se nedavno probudio iz desetogodišnjeg zimskog sna, objavivši album Torn Down, zbirku remiksovanih pesama sa svih albuma njegove grupe The Cure, čiji su upečatljivi imidž, depresivna lirika sa elementima filozofije apsurda i eklektično muzičko stvaralaštvo obeležili osamdesete godine prošlog veka. Naravno da Torn Down nije pravi povratak ovog velikog benda, koji je svojevremeno sa čudesnom lakoćom šetao između post-panka, najmračnijeg gotika, čistog popa, flojdovske psihodelije i raznih podžanrova rok zvuka (uključujući alternativni rok, grandž, hardkor, ekskurzije u vode Džimija Hendriksa, Džimija Pejdža, Dejvida Gilmura i Nila Janga) i čiji su se zlatni dani okončali  negde sredinom devedesetih. Međutim, Smit je od jedne po definiciji kompilacije napravio autorsko delo: ne samo što je lično odabrao pesme, opredelivši se pri tom za manje poznate ("kultne") kompozicije, već ih je i lično remiksovao, podarivši im novo ruho bez razaranja strukture. Torn Down je ako ništa drugo znak da Smit i dalje ume da iznenadi čak i kad prekopava po prošlosti, i da su The Cure za njega i dalje prilika za muzičku avanturu. Kao neko na koga su The Cure mnogo uticali upravo zbog svoje nepredvidivosti, višeslojnosti i inteligencije, a povodom 40 godina njhovog postojanja (obeleženih pre dva dana koncertom u londonskom Hajd Parku - za snimak celog nastupa kliknuti OVDE), želim da vas upoznam sa 100 za mene najdražih pesama ovog benda. Naslov svake pesme je link ka video spotu ili youtube muzičkom zapisu, radi potpunog ugođaja.
