The Cure: Wish

Wish is the ninth stu­dio album by British alter­na­tive rock band The Cure, released on 21 April 1992 through record label Fic­tion in the UK and Elek­tra in the US.

From hope­less­ly in love, to wish impos­si­ble things and let­ting go, Wish is in itself the cure for a real bro­ken heart and an incred­i­bly emo­tion­al and pow­er­ful album by The Cure. The sound is mes­mer­iz­ing and the lyrics are as deep as the sea about which it is writ­ten. The rep­re­sen­ta­tion of albums and the illus­tra­tions is excel­lent and fits the nature of the theme.

The audio qual­i­ty cer­tain­ly stands out and is way ahead of its time, and although, like me, many fans are hop­ing for an audio­phile re-release of the album, there is real­ly no need for it. The best way to achieve a great sound is to get the vinyl release, because the CD ver­sion, unlike vinyl, is heav­i­ly com­pressed. The vinyl release is not sold cheap­ly because it has become quite rare.

Wish has undoubt­ed­ly become one of my favorite The Cure albums. It is a freely acces­si­ble album, but it can also be a mys­tery that takes time to unrav­el, should the lis­ten­er choose to treat it as such.
