"THE CURE VS. THE SMITHS

The 80s. The sort of era longed for only by people who never lived in the 80s.

Lennon was shot dead, and is yet to rise again.

Thatcher came to power, and, when you think about it, still is in power.

America elected its first celebrity President, and thus the government became as stupid as its culture.

And Morrissey’s avant-garde brand of cuntishness found public voice, to the annoyance, but not to the detriment of The Cure.

THE CLEANUP BEEF SERIES CONTINUES WITH THE SMITHS VS THE CURE."

Don't know what the f*** that's about and I have no idea what they mean by "Morrissey's avant-garde brand of cuntishness".

The Cure wins.
I don't think so.

Compare The Smiths's debut with The Cure's.

The Smiths win.

Now compare Meat is Murder with Seventeen Seconds.

The Smiths win.

Now compare The Queen is Dead with Faith.

The Smiths win.

Now compare Strangeways, Here We Come with Pornography.

The Smiths win again.

The Cure 0

I love The Cure as much as I love The Smiths, but facts are facts. The four albums by The Smiths are better than the first four albums by The Cure.

I found Smiths and Cure records in my storage tonight and they had been arguing for years. But in the midst of all the fighting they had given birth to a baby boy called Joy Division.

Maybe that was their grandpa?

The Cure are great, but a lot of their discography is littered with filler, and some real turkeys.
How many Smith's song are out right bad or regarded as filler?
On a side note, some up and coming back could easily replicate The Cure blueprint sound. No one has come close to doing the same for The Smith's. They're in a league of their own
 

Morrissey's left nut

I know it's over, so why doesn't Morrissey?
Not even in the same class. The Cure are a book, The Smiths a mere footnote. It also helps when the singer isn't a pitiful self-loathing closeted weasel who can only white-knuckle the ember that remains of the spotlight by being an inflammatory divisive cunt.

I don't know how you can even compare the two.

though if I had to choose one to listen to for the rest of my life it would be the cure. I think the smiths are a bit more ingenious though.

The Cure are a boring studio band whereas The Smiths was art and culture and a lifestyle and more. But americans would never understand that but they think they understand The Cure when they don't.
Morrissey as a singer was at his best onstage with The Smiths and it was almost like his style onstage was an act on its own which added so much to the music of The Smiths and the lyrics are of course the best ever written.

There will never be a band or artist that will come close to producing the emotions The Smiths did with the combination of the music and the lyrics and Morrissey's onstage performance.

Would it be too much to ask if americans could stick to their shit music and let us europeans enjoy ours?

We have nothing in common with you americans and I hope you all die soon.

The two have nothing in common. The Cure was a goth emo band and The Smiths were so unique they didn't even belong to a genre cause they were their own genre.

Completely unique in every way but late comers who first discovered Morrissey struggled to come to terms with the fact he had been around before their time.

The Smiths is as english as anything can be and nothing else has even come close to portray the english culture and like they did.

if you do not like The Smiths you're not an anglophile and that is ok but boy did you miss out on something fantastic.

Most people here are goth/emo's and it makes me LOL
