UMC Universal Music Catalogue , Alternative, Инди-рок, Панк-рок , 2010. Anniversary: 1978 - 2018 Live In Hyde Park London. It's fitting that Disintegration was their commercial breakthrough, since, in many ways, the album is the culmination of all the musical directions the Cure were pursuing over the course of the '80s. Arguably their flagship release, The Cures Disintegration sold over three million copies and raised the bands status from cult icons to stadium-filling superstars. Yet this landmark album emerged from a turbulent 12-month period during which frontman Robert Smith battled with depression and fired The Cures co-founder, Lol Tolhurst, from the band. The Cures eighth studio album, Disintegration, turned 30 this week, and its safe to say theres a consensus that this album is the bands finest. Originally conceived as an intentionally depressing, introspective solo project inspired by a fear of turning thirty years old, band leader Robert Smith eventually brought the songs to the band where it became somewhat a group effort. Disintegration is a pop album realized on an epic scale

My pressing of this album sounds great. Such a big sound.
The high-topped sneakered prophet of gloom, Robert Smith, opens the majestic atmospheric and expansive album Disintegration with the line, I think it’s dark and it looks like rain ...,” emblematic of all that The Cure have stood for.  While there are those who would have you consider that Disintegration is just more of the same, it took the apparent mildly light-hearted release of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, to bring about this monumental opus of minor keyed songs, songs laced with drowning images designed not so much to invade your dreams, but to invade your waking hours.  And to that end, The Cure managed to capture not only the essence and feel of impending doom and melancholy, but set it to verse, where the tunes are perhaps best sung on the bus while looking through smudged windows, or hummed while in class to ward off the boredom ... coalescing all of the rumors and majesty of this bewildering band into one crowning achievement that will never be equaled. All of the work by The Cure, and especially this release, were packaged and designed to be carried like shields, or banners of expression, as were the albums of Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Jim Hendrix back in the hazy 60’s; where tribes were formed, with hair and music being the passkey.  You’ll find no angelic cries of exhalation here, nor will you find any hellish sustained misery either ... what you are treated to is the bleak angst that shrouded the 80’s and all of it’s excesses.  Disintegration can also be seen as a coming of age, or perhaps the end of an age album, though as I stood there in my mid 30’s, wrapped in my oversized coat and untied sneakers, feeling for all the world like I was yet again in the right place at the right time, I had the distinct feeling that I was perhaps a bit of a spy in the house of love, and that I should be letting a younger generation have their naive hazy hay-day of discovery.  Never the less, with perfect makeup and fashion to match, I danced into the wee hours of the morning like some proverbial ghost, haunting the side streets and after hours clubs. With all of this being said, Disintegration is all consuming in its sadness, longing, and emotional grandeur.  It’s far from a teenage album filled with whines and despair ... it’s an indulgence into the dark nether regions of our subconsciousness, formulated to challenge the nature of our being as we come face to face with all we thought we knew, with discovering the lies we’d held as fact [lies told to us, and lies we told to ourselves], finding that the only way to escaped the melancholy is to find the beauty within it, and once done, this soundtrack, or highway marker of sorts, gets shelved and nearly forgotten, until your hand stumbles over it, and a smile of satisfaction for those bygone days gently crease your face.*** The Fun Facts:  Riding on the success of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me there was both commercial and personal pressure placed on the band to deliver once again, yet as with many bands, this new found popularity had a destructive side, with Smith and other band members diving back into the use of hallucinogenic drugs which came to define this album.  The drug use was not used to present something more playful for the sake of listening, but rather elicited and brought out the more dark and foreboding personal side of Robert Smith and his uncomfortableness with success ... hence the album's title, with the band feeling that they were disintegrating back into their former selves.Review by Jenell Kesler
My copy sounds great. No noise, very quiet, no warping.
Wish I'd done my research before buying this. The noise issues are present in my copy, and both LPs are warped. I've heard rumors that the EU pressings are flawless, so I'll be grabbing one to see if there's any improvement. Such a waste.
This pressing has an atrocious sound quality. the surface noise this remaster has on the ENTIRE album is nothing short of sinful which is dissapointing because this is in my top three favorite records ever made.
Rainbo pressing, side B my favorite side, had noise start to finish! The rest was not so bad but a new record should not have this level of surface noise.
My US/Rhino pressing is crap. Very audible and persistent surface noise through all of sides B and D. There's also a fair amount of random popping and ticking throughout, and both records were pressed off center. I don't know if UK pressings are any better, but I would avoid this one.
im happy with my album, i was a little afraid about the noise level that everybody comments, it was a good surprise that my copy dosent have this problem except in the "D side", that have noticieable hight level noise.... but very happy whit the sound in side A, B, C
TRULY a disappointing pressing. I wish I had read these comments before buying this. The comments about noise are totally correct - one of the worst sounding pressings for a great album I've heard. Such a bummer, especially given the authority of this edition given by those involved. AVOID if you don't want crackles, pops, and general noise crowding out some of your favorite songs. Especially frustrating, given that what's underneath the noise sounds really good....
Just picked this up. Mine has same runout as listed here, but KEV is etched in Side B and Side C. Same pressing as everyone elses ? Made in US.
EDIT: THIS PRESSING IS GARBAGE.Read the reviews here, and of the company RAINBLO RECORDS who pressed this first.https://www.discogs.com/label/100643-Rainbo-RecordsIf this is the only way you can listen to this album, then maybe buy this pressing. Otherwise, Spotify this album and avoid RAINBO Records pressings. SIMPLY TERRIBLE. Yes, such a great album but what a sad pressing by which to honor this amazing record. Dynamics aside, this physical pressing is letting me down. I can hear the noise everywhere. Side b Lovesong and Last Dance, horrific. FUCK the pressing company who pressed this. Fine, make it a 2 disc set, which it should be, get the fans to buy a "nice" reissue and then fuck it up with a shitty press that has noise throughout? shame fucking shame. So pissed. Fascination Street just came on and I can hear the friggin' surface noise act as a counter point. THIS IS NOT WHY WE BUY VINYL PRESSINGS. God am I pissed b/c I love this song. If you can't hear the noise, good on you, but I bought this to hear a pristine, vinyl, warm, awesome version of one of my favorite songs and man am I disappointed.
Such a great album. This is the first The Cure vinyl I've bought. It's a shame that it was pressed at Rainbo. I've never had a good pressing from there. But all in all, I can't complain. It's a classic and I have a feeling it will be on heavy rotation for a long time.
lots of surface noise... music sounds good though. Little disappointed but thats the game! The packaging is nice, overall glad to own it.

Honestly, I think this one sounds excellent... I can't compare it to other pressings, but I love the way this one sounds, has a good amount of dynamics and depth for my tastes!
Snap, crackle, pop!!The music sounds good, especially turned up, but it's apparent it was mastered from a digital source and the record is pretty noisy, lots of pops plus side two of my copy is off-center. First time I've had to deal with this, I scraped some of the spindle off and made a mark so that I can center the record. The wow/flutter was real bad on Fascination Street. Disappointing that one of my favorite albums of all time is pressed so poorly. If I can find another copy in person and listen before buying I'd consider purchasing. Maybe sometime down the road they'll do a proper analogue master with some quality control on manufacturing.

Disappointing that one of my favorite albums of all time is pressed so poorly. If I can find another copy in person and listen before buying I'd consider purchasing. Maybe sometime down the road they'll do a proper analogue master with some quality control on manufacturing. This version is pressed by the rightfully ill-reputed Rainbo Records pressing plant. Easily one of the most (if not THE most period) unreliable vinyl manufacturers out there - they completely and utterly butchered the 2012 Beatles Abbey Road reissue to incomprehensibly astronomical degrees, and it still stands as the worst new vinyl pressing I've ever owned. Side one on my Abbey Road is unacceptably noisy and there is so much non-stop non-fill (not just in the vinyl but maybe even in the metalwork) that it sounds like a worn-out copy being played on a steel-needle gramophone. What an embarrassment. I try to avoid Rainbo-pressed variants whenever possible, unless they're the only option or the mastering is known to be better than on other pressings. Mind you, they are perfectly capable of pressing clean and quiet records, and a lot of my Rainbo pressings are free of flaws (other than the occasional off-center grooves), but the Beatles example and one other defective Rainbo record I own are more than enough to make me cautious about their quality control.
Sounds like the CD, which shouldn't be surprising. I guess I was hoping against hope that Bob knew what he was doing by remastering this digitally before having it pressed to vinyl. Oh well. Sounds nice, but it's missing the depth and warmth good vinyl pressings have. Still, glad to have it and I'll certainly play it plenty.
Bad pressing for me. Lots of noise and spot on it
Later US pressings of this should not have the non-fill that plagued the original pressings. You should contact Rhino if you have issues with your pressing.
Mine looks and sounds nice. It is unfortunate though that it turned to 1s and 0s before pressing on this nice 180g piece of wax. Im frustrated with Rob but.. I will always love you
This version of the album was created to be loud and it sounds quite nice, yeah its been really cleaned up and that makes it lose some of its moodier qualities but it sounds nice and clear at high levels and looks nice, the sound has been separated to give the instruments more space which makes it feel less live I guess that's the effect of the digital, no warps, it did looked like it had been used and was quite dirty and had a few pops on closedown but nothing else major, beats the original from what I can hear, its not perfect but nowhere near as bad as some say if you like this try to find a nice clean copy of this press for cheep.
No, I don't have a copy of this, but I do know that it's pressed by RHINO. So your chances of getting a copy that looks like someone scraped it on a table then played frisbee with it are very high. Tics, pops and static throughout. My copies (yes 4 copies) of Violator are just that. Dr. Rhino sent me 2 bad copies after I sent an email shaming him and Rhino Records for worthless garbage. It took a third one, that was open, but he guaranteed it was dead quiet. It was, but looked really bad. Anyway, Rhino is a gamble on many pressings. I'd love to have Disintegration, but reading to many negatives about non-analog mastering and a very digital sounding recording. I think I'll hold off :(
Didn't find MOV till it was to late. I have Ministry with Sympathy on MOV. It's dead quiet, but I'm not sure it's the original master. It could be a 24/96 digital recording, not positive though. I have to turn the volume up about 20% more than usual. Trying to find Music for the Masses on MOV, but now getting very hard to find.
Yeah, that's sounds like RHINO alright. Surface noise, dirt, scratches, pre-groove echoes, off-centered LP's, falsely advirtised weight of LP's, etc. Gotta love em.I think anyone besides Music On Vinyl should be banned from pressing LP's.Speaking of Violator, why would you buy a Rhino release when there's a perfect MOV release available.Also, I have this version of Disintegration, but the European version pressed by GZdm, and no Rhino's are involved in this version. Sounds good to me compared to the original LP pressing & the cd version.
my copy sounds excellent - also no warping at all. I like the original pressing but this has the 2 extra tracks and sounds just as good as the original pressing.
I don't get it, a potential, one time opportunity from the main man himself, to remaster from an analogue source, the original analogue master tapes and transfer, once and for all, to an analogue medium without any digital lineage. What does Rob go and do? Make a digital master and transfer that to an analogue medium? Why? What's the point? Fair enough, remaster for Digital mediums, after all, it was 2010, but make an analogue version too. There's no point in the vinyl version, you might as well just get the WAV/FLAC or CD. Surely someone ill advised or poorly supervised Rob? Or did Rob, then just into his 50s, misunderstand digital, this new-fangled medium, thinking somehow it was superior to analogue tapes? It probably does sound better than the original press, but just think how good it could have been? I doubt Rob's going to want to sit through all this again. Rob, if you're reading, do all your real fans a favour and remaster to analogue, please.
Add me to the list of people who have tons of non-fill on their copies.
My copy sounds brilliant. I've never heard the Cure in such a dynamic way. There are a few pops here and there but overall a fantastic pressing.
Does anyone else have a copy that has the same labels on sides A and B?
I'm usually the one having issues being frustrated to no end with pops and surface noise on many of the "new" releases I get, but I have to put my two cents in and contradict what most of the others are saying. The sound of this record is pristine and full bodied and one of my best sounding records on a fairly standard set up. There might just be a few batches of bad copies out there.
i bought this record 3 times and every time same problem, cracks loud pops, surface noise and scratches, all over the record, the sound is terrible either way, the original sounds way better, i cant believe there are people who actually complimented this release, stay away from this unless you want this for the artwork...
Decent reissue. Probably the definitive version of this on vinyl since the original release is missing a couple songs. The sound is really nice, but my copy is on the noisy side. There are some light scuffs and scratches on the records, presumably from the horrible heavy inner sleeves they came in. And for those saying it's "muddy," that's just how the album sounds in general. I don't know if this was recorded digitally or in analog, so this digital vinyl reissue may be the best copy of the album ever released. I'm satisfied.
To call release R1 523284 "Remastered" is disgraceful! No top end and muddy sounding. Very disappointing release.
I've heard that the original vinyl is even worse.
Not quite sure what version matt2011 was reviewing there, but I just came here to say how great this pressing is. Perfectly flat double 180g vinyl, packaged in a gatefold with full color thick inner sleeves. Extremely quiet pressing, dynamic and thick full bass. Sounds fantastic. My copy is the 2010 Rhino press, and Rhino has a great track record putting out very high quality vinyl. If matt received 3 copies, all warped, then the problem isn't the pressing - it may be a very hot mailbox.
Horrible repress! Seriously, stay away from this at all costs. So disappointing as this includes the full album (including the two tracks originally only on the CD release), but wow, terrible repressing of this. I returned it three times thinking something was wrong with that particular copy, but they were all same: vinyls were warped, quality was bad, cheap packaging. All bad. One of the most mind boggling things about this repress is that it finally got the double vinyl release it deserves, and yet all the sides of the vinyl have a full inch or more of dead wax. Isn't the point of a double wax repress to use up all the sides for audio grooves so they can stretch out and allow the sound to breathe? Avoid this repress at all costs, just a lazy effort!
