The Cure - Happily Ever After


On this date in 1981, The Cure released a U.S.-only double album called Happily Ever After. It was a combination of The Cure's second and third albums, Seventeen Seconds and Faith, both only available in the U.S. as imports at the time. This compilation included the singles "A Forest" (#31 U.K.) and "Primary" (#43 U.K.). The album did not catch on well enough to chart. The Sussex, England post punk/goth/new wave band continues on with Robert Smith at the helm.

Never seen this comp before.... Seventeen Seconds is a fine record... Faith is a bit dour and dull in places but has it's moments... like much of the Cure catalogue... Patchy but excellent in places!!

Bloodflowers is my favourite of their recent material - awesome album. Also eagerly awaiting the 2-disc reissue of Disintegration.

True.. BLOODFLOWERS is closer to the spirit of The Cure than anything they've done since DISINTEGRATION.... less depressing too!!!
