Album of the Day
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME finds The Cure on a strong career upswing – the 1987 collection put the band in the U.S. Top 40 for the first time, and into the Top 10 in their native England and numerous other countries. Originally a double album, the set bursts with varied, adventurous arrangements, wild mood swings and frontman Robert Smith's best batch of songs to date; “Why Can't I Be You?,” “Catch,” “Hot Hot Hot!!!” and the classic “Just Like Heaven” were the singles, but there's not a dud to be heard here. Any good list of The Cure's best albums includes KISS ME, KISS ME, KISS ME near the top, and we'll give the platinum seller another spin now to wish Smith a happy birthday.
