Artist: The Cure
The rundown: Pornography is one of the defining albums in the Cure’s forty-one years as a band. It is by far the most aggressive thing Robert Smith has ever come up with. Opening with the line, “it doesn’t matter if we all die,” Pornography is dark, brooding and manic. It is hard to believe that the poppy single, ‘Let’s Go to Bed’ was released in the same year. But, that’s why I love the Cure.
