When you see this, you'll grab for it, grin, and
scurry on home. I don't think anyone could pass it up. The cover
is lovely; it's the picture (taken from Vox), in
which, Robert is pulling his lip off to the side...
You won't be disappointed. It opens with Want...and
will make you remember how you went down
reeling with shivers and tingles at that (those)
amazing SWING tour show(s)...
(hhmmm... there is some background noise, but nothing
please fulfill your vacant dreams and soothe yourself...
Treasure (alone) is worth everything in the world....
Some additional comments on the songs:
Want ("drink more beer more dreams...more stars more heaven...")
Mint Car ("yes the next single the one Ray Cokes is busy learning the chords
to, but just too late to be on stage with us tonight...")
Treasure ("another change of mood...this one is called treasure" some guy screams, "YAY!!" and i think: EXACTLY :))
Bare ("a-ha-ha..oh dear, i'll just bite my lip and count to three...")
Gone! (WHO is singing with him??)
The 13th (INCREDIBLE! can anyone figure out the "do it to me" part?)
This one has tracks from four different
gigs but they all have one thing in common:
the venue is London. Tracks 1-10 were taken
from the live show aired exclusively by
MTV Europe. Tracks 11-13 are recorded at
Later Studios. Next two tracks takes place
at the T.F.I.F -show. The rest was performed
at the very last show of MTV's Most Wanted, hosted
by Ray Cokes. As it happens, Ray played as a guest
guitarist on Friday I'm in Love and Robert
changed a bit of lyrics to match the occasion.
Brings back fond memories...
The quality of sound varies a bit but overall it's
pretty good (last three are almost faultless).
The performances are of top quality as one
could expect from The Cure. The pictures adoring the sleeve
are the same ones Vox-magazine used in their June 1996 issue.
All in all, if you love the stuff on WMS, you could do a lot
worse than hunt down this bootleg. But why do they come up with
so lame bootleg titles like this one has?
The cover has a close-up of Robert's face as does the disc itself and
inside are some of him in a blue flannel.
Nice packaging and good sound. The performances of the songs
clearly shows that they haven't played these songs more than a few times!
The second incarnation of this is a lie
on this boot is done with a live string
section. They miss a few notes here and
there and on occasions it's a bit staccato,
but very worth it, as you can consider
this the live version of the ambient mix.
Gone! features a back up singer that often
sings louder than robert. I think he tries
to overpower her a few times, but fails
miserably if he does. It's sort of baptist-church-ish
i love it...
Pretty decent sounding cd. The
Adrenaline show does not have
the best sound but it's still
definitely listenable and enjoyable.
But get it if you don't have the live
versions of Gone and the 13th.
I was hooked on Gone after hearing
This is the best boot from any of the Adrenaline Club
boots. The sound quality is great. What makes
it even better is the addition of some other
live songs. The MTV songs, Just Like Heaven,
Mint Car and Friday I'm In Love are excellent.
This boot is really good. If you you can
find it, but it!
