Editorial Reviews

Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late `70s,THE CURE was one of the most enduring and popular. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith,the band became notorious for their slow,gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance. But the public image often hid the diversity of the Cure's music.

This Blu-ray is a TRILOGY of CURE albums, PORNOGRAPHY, DISINTIGRATION and BLOODFLOWERS,that were performed in three successive night in 2002. All tracks reflect the original release. Now CURE Fans can experience, what not to long ago was just heard and imagined,the full CURE.

TRACKLISTING PORNOGRAPHY 1. One Hundred Years 2. A Short Term Effect 3. The Hanging Garden 4. Siamese Twins 5. The Figurehead 6. A Strange Day 7. Cold 8. Pornography DISINTEGRATION 1. Plainsong 2. Pictures Of You 3. Closedown 4. Love Song 5. Last Dance 6. Lullaby 7. Fascination Street 8. Prayers For Rain 9. The Same Deep Water As You 10. Disintegration 11. Homesick 12. Untitled BLOODFLOWERS 1. Out Of This World 2. Watching Me Fall 3. Where The Birds Always Sing 4. Maybe Someday 5. The Last Day Of Summer 6. There Is No If... 7. The Loudest Sound 8. 39 9. Bloodflowers ENCORE SET: If Only Tonight We Could Sleep ~ The Kiss

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll keep this brief August 7, 2005
Format:DVD
Many reviewers here complain about the boring visuals, the subtle differences in arrangements, and the mix of the songs on this DVD. Bottom line (there's that dreaded bottom line again )this is ESSENTIAL viewing/listening experience of the Cure. The live set of Pornography blows the studio version completely out of the water ( listen to the live versions of these songs on the recent reissue of Pornography and tell me I'm wrong). The Disintegration set is faithful to a fault - I was in Atlanta for the Prayer Tour in 1990 - and I don't hear anything out of place or off key ( as others are saying ) in the performance or the mix. As for the Bloodflowers set, I didn't see the shows, but I can assure anyone on the fence that the live versions here are quite on par with the studio versions. Overall, this is a real treat for Cure fans, the sound mix is fantastic, the visuals are subtle but very effective, and the experience as a whole is the next best thing to "being there." Sure, some songs are performed slower than the original studio versions, some a bit faster, but that's what makes a concert. Enough said. Buy it. Five stars, absolutely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoever said the notes were "off key"... February 19, 2005
By greg
Format:DVD
I want to clear somethng up here. The reviewer below who said that the notes in "closedown" (one of my personal favorites)were "off key" is just wrong, and obviously doesn't understand musical terms. While the notes on the keyboard ARE different than on the album, that doesn't make them "off key" There are many notes that you can use in a scale and still be in key. Being OFF key would mean playing a note OUT of the scale, or one that is not in tune with the rest of the song.

What kind of idiot are you trying to make Robert Smith look like by saying he didn't catch the change in the keys before he could "edit" the video? This is a man who has been writing music professionally for almost 30 years; a man who records, sequences, programs and masters countless numbers of tracks in his own home studio. And you're sitting here telling people that YOU caught an error in HIS music that he let slide? Give me a break.

I know that it can be dissapointing to people to hear their favorite bands play a song differently in a live show when they're so used to hearing it the way they have for years on an album. Sometimes the song just doesn't have the same effect.

But you have to understand, performing a song the exact same way for YEARS and YEARS can probably get very tiring and boring. Musicians sometimes just need to use their creativity and try new things - but that doesn't make playing a different note a mistake.

For the record, the keyboards are also different (on this video and other live performances as well) on other songs including "lovesong"

This video is a MUST HAVE for cure fans. I am going to watch again right now :)

Format:DVD
I had an opportunity to see The Cure live during the second date of their Curiosa Festival in Tampa, along with some of the bands they've influenced in the course of the past decade or so. This DVD, recorded in Berlin in November 2002 reflects the current musical state of the band, except that it misses on their latest self-titled album. But for some it may better that way. "Trilogy" presents live versions of three of the band's (arguably) best albums: 'Pornography', 'Disintegration' and 'Bloodflowers', along with an encore set made up of "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep" and "The Kiss" (from their 'Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me' album).

This is an essential buy for serious The Cure fans and a highly recommendable live DVD set for the newcomer into the band's music, since it provides the viewer with a complete experience: a very well produced musical recording, along with the visuals of a great show (much like the one you could catch, if you saw them live these days) and a video with excellent direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Freshly squashed fly" February 5, 2009
By EMqube
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This had previously been the greatest live concert ever released on any format, and now it just got better!

When I purchased the DVD of this live show, filmed in Berlin, a number of years ago I was astounded at how amazing it was. I have seen The Cure 10 times throughout the course of my life, and own every studio release, video release, and many bootlegs; yet I still was not prepared for just how unbelievably incredible this performance would be.

Now, years later, after many throw away Blu-ray concert releases from artists without half the talent of The Cure, we finally get 'Trilogy' in beautiful High-definition; and boy was it worth the wait!

The audio sounds flawless, and the picture quality is light-years better than the already very good looking DVD. This is how you release a live concert on Blu-ray; looks perfect, sounds perfect, and the content is second to none.

The Cure combine a live show of three intrinsically linked albums, 'Pornography', 'Disintegration', and 'Blood Flowers' to give fans the ultimate Blu-ray that could ever be asked for.

The supplements even shine, with a 2 song encore consisting of 'If Only Tonight We Could Sleep' and 'The Kiss' from the album 'Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me', as well as backstage footage and other goodies.

Whether you are a Blu-ray fan, a Cure fan, a live concert fan, or even a moderate fan of any of these things, you owe it to yourself to have this on your shelf.

Very possibly the best live concert that will ever be released.
