this release has been an all time favorite of mine for almost fifteen years, and i don't think i'll ever tire of it. every song...from the chillingly, eerie pace of <All Cats Are Grey> (a cure classic in every sense) to the all bass guitar driven <Primary>...yes, this album is dark, but it is more peaceful than anything else. i can listen to Faith for hours while i write, chill with friends, or just drift off into a deep sleep.
i can't reccommend this CD enough. it truly is a great collection of cure music. you want driving beats, raw bass lines with a punk feel? you got it. you want twisted, morbidly glowing goth? you got it. there's a wonderful pacing of music flow....and you'll just end up of floating along with it.
All in all, i'd say there is no diehard cure fan on the planet that does not own Faith. if i'm wrong, shame on you. buy it. Faith is part of the Cure's <magic 3>: "Seventeen Seconds", "Faith", and "Pornography". 3 Cure albums...so similar in tone, yet so different in meaning. "Faith", the middle of the three is almost the calm before the storm, which would be "Pornography". i look at it all as a trilogy in the Cure archive.
to listen to Faith is to experience Faith. one of the Cure's finest....
Robert Smith has expressed his appreciation for the music of Joy Division and I would say that this album, "Faith", is The Cure's "Closer" - dark, monotone, toy drumming with layers of anguish and compelling lyrics. "The Funeral Party" is like Joy Division's "Eternal" - dealing with loss in an effective, but original way. I compare The Cure's "Faith" album to Joy Division's "Closer", only to express how well I feel Robert Smith managed to make an effective album - this is original, unique music and it reaches a beauty that is unmatched by many.
In all of "Faith's" misery and anguish - it is highly peaceful and beautiful. That is its charm and lasting appeal. I could sleep to this music as well as I could revel in anger or frustration.Read more ›

Had faith on LP back in 1981. The remastered cd does justice to the album with the thumping bass dominating on all tracks. Read morePublished 17 months ago by bruce anderson
This album is absolutely fantastic. The only track I wasn't fond of when I bought it was 'Doubt,' but listening to it several times, it's grown on me quite a bit. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Grace
The Cure's third album "Faith" from 1981 is, like the previous two albums made up of songs with simple, often riff-based song structures. Read morePublished on June 26, 2014 by Morten Vindberg
