The Cure - Disintegration: Wikipedia Album Entry

Disintegration is a triumph of the Cure's 20+ year career. Lauded by many as the Cure's best, the album brought the Cure to #2 in the American Billboard Top 100 music charts with Lovesong. Its rich, deep, moody character defined the Cure as a goth band for ages to come, even though they can span from disco to post punk to pop to classic rock. Robert Smith's smeared lipstick and humongous hair was different than most of the stuff out there in 1989 (Girl, You Know It's True anyone?) and this album helped to shape a generation of eyeliner-wearing teens and tweens.
