The Cure are gradually edging towards something of a pop paradox where the absolute state of the art hardly makes an impression on those ugly charts.
They lack the insight of U2, but possess a rich sparkle and imagination of their own. ‘Jumping Someone Else’s Train’ is better though less instant than the throwaway ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ - it’s more growing, more paced, more structured. It builds into an incessant and fetching commercial song typically Cure which means it doesn’t communicate a great deal but points at what you can do with rock structures given a modicum of inspiration.
