Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, few were as enduring and popular as the Cure. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith (born April 21, 1959), the band became notorious for its slow, gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance, a public image that often ...

The production quality is very good and has a nice flow from beginning to end.
D. Petersen
After hearing this opening song on this album, one can predict instantly what the rest of the album will sound like.
Eugene Fenlon BA
I am a big fan of the cure, and this album is pretty much a 'best of' album, but remixed.

Unlike most, I heard these versions before I heard the originals. Spacious, elegant and emotionally compelling, this music has been adapted for the dancefloor without sacrificing its rock appeal in the process. In fact, when I compare these magnificent versions of Pictures Of You, Inbetween Days and Close To Me to the originals, they sound almost flat and one-dimensional. I'm sure most Cure fans would disagree, but for me these extended mixes have an added charm and flow. The dance rhythms provide a hypnotic twist and do not in any way detract from the profundity of The Cure's music. Definitely my favourite Cure album.

...Otherwise, you will miss out on some superb Cure favorites.
I am told by some musician friends of mine that rarely is a song truly finished by the time the tracks are laid and mixed for the original album recording. Often what happens is that there is a rush to produce an album in time for a release deadline. So months or even years later, after the band has had a chance to play it repeatedly in concert and fine-tune it, the song can finally reach its last transformation. Of course by then it's too late to change the debut recording.
The Cure; Mixed Up is a collection of eleven of The Cure's hits from the `80s; remixed, extended, and/or remade. Since I'm familiar with several of the originals from when they were radio hits I have a good comparison reference. There is a definite tendency to lay in more synth sounds in these versions. Some tracks are stretched out and punched up for better dancing rhythm (Lullaby, Hot Hot Hot! And Fascination Street), while others seem to be rearranged to be more full-bodied and moody for artistic purposes (the Walk, the Caterpillar, A Forest).
Whatever the intent, these remixes work very well for me. Although I love all the originals as only a longtime fan could, this album has its own merit as a different expression of the artists' visions. For instance, Never Enough conveys the tortured angst of addiction better through distorted vocals and frantic pacing; the Caterpillar has an added dimension that makes it seem fantastic in a fairy-tale way. In these cases I even find myself preferring the latter versions.
But what the heck, it's all the Cure -- reason enough to buy it!
-Andrea, aka Merribelle

The Cure - Mixed Up (1990)

It definitely beats the pants off of the recent single CD REMIXES 81 - 04 compilation I got not too long ago by Depeche Mode. I love Depeche, but unfortunately, I find those remixes to be rather unimaginative and run-of-the-mill compared to MIXED UP which is bursting with creativity and fun. If you like the Cure's "party" side, it's hard to beat this CD for great times.

My impressions:

"Lullaby (Extended Mix)" - A personal favorite. The Cure were never virtuosos and some people find Robert Smith's voice questionable, but they (or "Robert," whatever) have always had a knack for creating moods and sounds that perfectly compliment whatever lyrics Smith wrote. I won't blab endlessly about how talented I think they are. The best songs on MIXED UP retain that expressive quality while sounding completely different from the originals. Some are more radically different than others. Personal note: I'll always remember being in a club in Paris (ages ago, when I was fortunate enough to live in France for a year) having a blast, dancing my ass off when this remix of "Lullaby" graced my ears for the first time. When I realized it was the Cure, I became ecstatic! *****

"Close To Me (Closer MIx)" - here, "Close To Me" is charmingly injected with a shuffling hip-hop beat. This is a great party song with plenty of horns. It's far removed from the spare, nervous little number from the HEAD ON THE DOOR album. If you want to whine about this not being "Dre" or "Nas" or whatever, fine, but you should really open your mind a bit. I once knew a hip-hop DJ who was so taken with this track he had to record it.

I didn't used to be a fan of remixes, but these kinda grew on me. I got this around the same time the Galore compilation came out, & it was nice to hear the same songs I had grown to love through the years in different forms. Like other reviewers have pointed out, there are some mixes that compliment the song, & others that you just won't like as much as the original ("A Forest). I'd say my favorite extended mixes on here are "Fascination Street" & "Hot Hot Hot". The "Pictures of You" mix gives the song (1 of my most favorite Cure songs ever) a much different groovy but relaxing vibe, but I still long for the original. Yes, some of the mixes are kinda long, but most mixes are anyway. All in all, different mixes for different occasions... whether it's for driving late at night (esp. long roadtrips), dancing in a club, or played at the end of night (aka, LEAVE) at a club. However, you are NOT complete without at least one of the other best-of compilations of the originals...I suggest Staring at the Sea & Galore (or the 1st disc of "greatest hits" if you don't want to get both), & then go for the albums if you're new to the band or just haven't gotten around to it yet.
