One Hundred Years
God, I love this song. The guitar on this is amazing, and that ''cold'', almost dangerous atmosphere. I feel this is a pretty underrated song, at least in my experience.
A Short Term Effect
A song that also could have been on the last album, it's got that classic The Cure sound. I like the echoey effects in this.
The Hanging Garden
A goth classic! I love how the drums and bass work together, and how they contrast to everything Robert Smith does. Fun fact: AFI did a pretty good cover of this.
Such a lovely song. Nice guitars during the instrumental parts, and I like that they're not around so much while Robert is singing, so that the drums get to shine - the bass is kind of hidden behind the drums.
Really cool effect on the bass. Everything sounds good, really! Loving the guitar inbetween the verses. But it does drag on a bit, as it's over 6 minutes long.
A Strange Day
A very darkwave song, since the keyboards are so prominent. I love the little guitar riff after the first chorus and towards the end of the song!
This song features Robert playing cello, wow! They really made a cold atmosphere with the instruments (especially with the keyboards), perfectly matching the title and lyrics.
The title track starts with some backwards speaking, and then some normal talking before the instruments slowly come in and drowns them out. Robert doesn't start singing until almost halfway into the song! It's 6,5 minutes long, so for me it's a little too weird and drags on for quite a bit.
On Friday I will take on something completely different; The Top!
