It’s slightly astounding to think that an album like Disintegration became a huge commercial success. The eighth album by The Cure is a huge, dark record, where pop hits sit comfortably with extended gothic, post-punk monoliths. It’s an album that has lost none of its power since release, and is still one of the high points for a band that has had hosts of them. Robert Smith has stated that the album was an intentional attempt to create something lasting and more meaningful following significant pop success, and Disintegration certainly achieved that.
