THE CURE (l.-r.) Perry Bamonte, Roger O'Donnell, Jason Cooper, Smith, Simon Gallup


Lead Performance: The Cure; Genre: Rock

Robert Smith's songwriting for The Cure has always possessed more depth and sensitivity than his mope-meister image would suggest. Nowhere is that more apparent than on this poignant song cycle, Bloodflowers, on which introspective numbers speak of endings and departures with a resonant midlife melancholy -- and an implicit sense of hope -- making this one of the band's most affecting works.
