Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Faith [Deluxe Edition]
From the fog-shrouded photo of Bolton Priory on its cover, The Cure's third album oozes with gloomy atmosphere. Still years away from the pop-flavored hits that would make the band world famous, FAITH shows frontman Robert Smith, bassist Simon Gallup, and drummer Lol Tolhurst squarely – and very effectively - in goth mode. Titles like “The Funeral Party,” “The Drowning Man” and “All Cats Are Grey” reflect a mood of despair that dominates the 1981 collection. Its bleak outlook comes through even more strongly on the Deluxe Edition of the album, which adds a disc of demos, outtakes and live versions to the remastered original. Calling all Halloween ghouls: FAITH is the ideal soundtrack for that blackest of nights!
