The Cure Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me (Elektra)
Samey samey samey is the strategy - repeat repeat repeat repeat the same four bar theme for 16, 24, 48, 64 bars before Robert Smith starts to whine, wail, warble, work. Because Smith hasnít veered this far pop since he was a boy, most of the themes stick with you, and in a few cases - my pick is "Just Like Heaven," which gets off to a relatively quick start - his romantic vagaries have universal potential. But especially over a double album, the strategy gets pretty tedious unless Smith happens to be whining, wailing, warbling.
