The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry

       Chris True: ‘Falling somewhere between official release and compilation, Boys Don’t Cry was released in February 1980 in hopes of increasing the band’s exposure outside of the U.K. It captures the first phase of the band well, showcasing the angular new wave that had garnered them acclaim in England. The major difference separating this from the debut full-length (and thus qualifying it as an “official” release) is that unlike Three Imaginary Boys, the first three singles (“Killing an Arab,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” and “Jumping Someone Else’s Train”) are included. A good starting point for getting up to speed on this era of the band, it works best when paired up with Three Imaginary Boys; then you’ll get the complete picture.’
