This is a great bootleg. Anyone want to make a trade??
This boot is a must if any of you haven't heard
World War. I frankly can't understand why Robert
doesn't like the song! As far as the rest, Subway Song
is truly remarkable...Plastic Passion is pretty cool,
Wailing Wall, Robert mumbles away words that you can't
understand!....Figurehead excellent demo.
This happens to be one of my most favorite bootlegs. Very well put together
with an eclectic mix of tunes. Pretty good sound quality. Great demo's--
plastic passion, figurehead.
World War and Big Hand-- wonderful.
Do the Hansa--Way Cool! A wonderful photo of Robert on
the back cover. A must have for the Cure fanatic!!!!!
An interesting mix of both old and new songs. The "Mink Palm" version of
Mint Car (Glastonbury '95), before Robbie learned the lyrics is great.
The demos of World War and Do The Hansa are a must have for any true fan.
This boot also contains my favorite version of Lament (Werchter, Belgium '90).
It's a touching performance of a brilliant song.
This is a beautiful bootleg! I especially
like Do the Hansa (makes me happy!)
Big Hand and In your house. Itīs funny
though, how songs like Mint Car has turn
into "Mink Palm", or how Cut has become "1,2,3,4"!!
The lovely cover deserves a 10 point bonus!

A nice 90s bootleg (read: a best-of from previously available boots...)
Aside from that let-down, there are some advantages
to getting this disc, namely the cutting and pasting
of the pre-Wish and pre-WMS live tracks you'd otherwise
have to buy along with bland sets like those on the
T & C/Secret Gig boots.
Dredd Song is alright...
it would have been nice to stick Burn on this as
well, 'cos they're basically the same song :)
All the demos are fishy...The TIB ones are slowed
down slightly, and The Top cuts are exised from
The Top Studio Demos. This thing plays like
a mixed tape, which is fine, but for 'spotters
this boot is close to the worst i have.
i bought it because of THE BIG HAND and
DREDD SONG, but was disappointed. DREDD
SONG is somewhat pointless, and THE BIG
HAND (well, for that matter, all of the
WISH-era songs) are compressed and kind
a icky. 1,2,3,4 is only a very, very
slow version of CUT with far less guitar
-ish angst (which, as we all know, is
what makes CUT). And where is that funky
wah'ed lead from WENDY TIME? I didn't
even recognize the song. All of the
early demos are from "EARLY SYMPTOMS"
(zzz...) and the "THE TOP" demos are of
poor, poor quality. SHAKEDOGSHAKE is
muddled and lacks the definition I think
it deserves. Same with the stumbling
WAILING WALL, which was also hard to
recognize. IN YOUR HOUSE is fairly
normal, but LAMENT is a clear, concise
gem of a recording. "MINK PALM" (tee
hee -- sounds like a sick masturbation
joke) is kinda confused with an intro
that sounds like FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE
(...), and the lead parts of jupiter
crash lack the equilizer and volume
that they command. THR FIGUREHEAD is
only good when it is not distorted and
muddy. and then there's a less-than-
spectacular version of INBETWEEN DAYS
which gets points for the good mix and
clear synth. Anyway, the cover on the
front makes up for it all (is it
possible for that boy NOT to look good?
only in the lullaby video, i guess...).
