The Cure - Freakshow

Bobby Smith and company are back and after the lacklustre first single the true fruits of having Porl Thompson back show.

Freakshow is brilliant, it's modern Cure but certainly nods to Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me with more playful lyrics from Mr Smith. The Wah Wah guitars are masterfully put into give a sense of a playful but energised.

So far this collection of songs has been a mix, but the b side nods to early Cure and maybe this album will reflect all the best things about the Cure..... but yes it must be said welcome back Porl.
