    Oh, I spend so much more time listening to music as well. But I have so much music that I may listen to a album for the first time one day (like The Misfits, Static Age today) and think oh that was pretty good, and then not listen to it again for a couple of months as I cycle through other stuff.
    Oh yes so do I. I actually started a spreadsheet of all my albums and have a spot for the last time I listened to an album and a tally for how many times I've listened to a particular album. Of course since I only started it last year only albums I hadn't heard before I can really do a tally of. What I tend to like about these is it forces me to listen to a lot of new music and like with how much Cure I've been listening to, I'm probably going to add about 10-15 songs into my regular rotation as well. It's just a way to add more "new" stuff into my rotations.

    Obviously my rating and such isn't going to be as valued as an album I've listened to over 10 times but I like making ratings like that. And on my master if something is say a 9-10 but has only been listened to once that just means I oughta give it a couple more listens before it's Top 100 material.

    I know it doesn't count since it's a compilation but Standing on a Beach: The Singles was one of the seminal albums of my youth (and by youth I mean I was 8 or 9 when I first had it on tape). I associate it with playing 8-bit Nintendo esp. Zelda. I had a cool New Wave babysitter who got me into them. I would give that album a 10/10, but aside from that I only know Disintegration really well.


    Disintegration - 9

    Okay, I'm still listening to Disintegration and might get a couple more in tomorrow if I have time but I gotta go to bed, so I'll finish it mid-day tomorrow. But in case the votes are counted before I get that vote in, here's what I have so far.

    Three Imaginary Boys - 4
    Seventeen Seconds - 8
    Pornography - 6
    The Top - 8
    The Head on the Door - 9
    Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me - 8
    Wish - 9

    Looks like you've enjoyed The Cure quite a bit.


    Anyhow, Winston, please work your math magic.

    Thanks!

    Realised I included albums with less than 4 votes in the U2 total. But it wouldn't have changed things much, since unlike The Cure only 2 of their albums were under the threshold.

    I'm surprised by the Pornography ambivalence. That's the one I usually think of as being the most artistic and critically acclaimed, although probably not the most accessible.

    I think it's just overshadowed by The Head on the Door and Disintegration. For me, it's hard to beat those two albums. I like Pornography (but it is my least favorite of the trilogy), but I think The Head on the Door is a perfect album that I'd pit against the best from any band out there. It's an album to be studied, a masterclass of modern rock.
