"Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me" is a charming, energetic and romantic album that makes up for its 74-minute runtime with a HUGE batch of gothic love jams! The writing is great, the instrumentation is outstanding and much of the record manages to be hooky.

Fav Tracks: Just Like Heaven, One More Time, Fight, Torture, The Kiss, Catch, Hey You!!!, The Snakepit, Hot Hot Hot!!!, All I Want, Shiver and Shake

Least Fav Track: The Perfect Girl

This album is about love. It's a ginormous, huge, overpowering, almost intimidating feeling that, if your going to talk about it depth, your going to have to talk about it for a while.

A very strong album by The Cure inbetween their two most famous records The Head on The Door and Disintegration and well Kiss Me, is a long one a very long album at nearly 75 minutes and 18 tracks and well the track listing can be sometimes hard to justify but nevertheless it doesn't draw too much away from this great record and ya know, it has Just Like Heaven on it so it got to be a good record.

Well this is a charming lil record isn't it? The cure reached a creative peak in the 80's/early 90's, and this album is a perfect showcase of that. The album does reach a slump in the latter half of the record, but quickly picks up again towards the end with songs like "Perfect Girl" and "Shiver and Shake", which are certified bops even today. Also this was the album that spawned the magic of "Just Like Heaven", which is arguably the most romantic song of all time. ... read more
