University of Canterbury Student Paper
August 5, 1980
The Cure still linger. A plug. Buy Seventeen Seconds, of all the
records available at the moment, it stands triumphant. It is an
album of captivating excellence. The poppiness of Three Imaginary
Boys has been abandoned in favour of a more sophisticated brand
of music. Songs that roll and flow ever onwards - all components
locked inseparably together in uniform sublimity.
It grows and grows and emeshes itself firmly in your subconscious.
Forty minutes that just won't let go. Nothing I can say could possibly
describe it. It cries our to be heard and I wouldn't swap it
for all the Ted Nugents, Bob Dylans, or Emotional
