If you are familiar with this bootleg, please rate it for others that might
not be familiar with it (10 is the best). To view all of the albums in order of

Just another compilation of tracks that are found on many other "imports".
The Wild Mood Swings
demos are very similar to the album tracks, except The 13th (2 Chord Cool)
has some different lyrics and sounds. A good compilation CD with very good
sound quality throughout.
Well, nothing earthshaking...
The first pass mixes of the Wild Mood Swings songs
are cut in the beginning and the end.
They are not very different to what ended up
on the album exept The Two Chord cool
which is the most interesting track on
the CD. Forget the rest until track 17
which is from the German Hanging Garden
10". And Boys don't Cry sounds like
the album version but is recorded one or
two days earlier.
Like Collector's Kaleidoscope, this is
a good sampling of what is out there on
bootlegs and stuff. The quality is good
throughout, and some of the highlights
include Burn from the Crow soundtrack,
The Two Chord Cool (The 13th with some alternate
lyrics), the Strangelove mix of Friday
I'm in Love (unfortunatly cut off after
about 3:20...) a couple of good Kiss Me
outtakes called Sugar Girl and Snow in
Summer. Just between you and me, what the
hell were they thinking when they decided
what went on Kiss Me...when they had these
two songs and To the Sky to choose from??
But, I digress...There's a great Killing
an Arab, a live version...but I worship that
song live...but, it's off an official UK
release, so the quality is great! And the
Boys Don't Cry demo is great to hear... I mean,
it really sucks, but any Cure fan will
love to hear it! I'd pick this up if you
Nice 13th version with Robert doing a Mary alike voice
One summer eve I strolled into the used record store looking for
something 80's, something vintage. I asumed there wouldn't be
alot of old Cure stuff, but still curious I looked in the
'C' section. Then a glimpse of a the little goody known as
obsCUREities caught my eye and held on tight. This was
twenty one dollars I was willing to part with. I listened to it
once, I listened to it twice, I listened to it a billion times
it has to be one of the best albums, not only bootleg wise
but overall. It has a wide selection of different songs
including two off soundtracks, a couple of remixes, some
tributes, singles and demos. The WMS's stuff I am
especially fond of and like even better than what the
group actualy chose for the album. A must have for any
fan, I am extreamly grateful I found it.
This is a fairly good bootleg. I was really trying to
find it for about 5 months and when I got it, I was
pleased with it. Its nice to have Burn and the
Dredd Song on the same disc. Most of the demos
are no different from the original versions of
the songs. The Strangelove mix of Friday is
really good and so is Snow In Summer. Overall
it's not bad. Most of the stuff on this disc
can be found elsewhere, but it's a good disc.
great CD...I love all the songs on here. I think
two chord cool is kinda freaky with robert doing that
other voice though...but i digress...the
friday i'm in love remix is pretty cool....
but i have almost 90% of this CD on other
boots but this is definately worth it.
