Revisit Faith by The Cure 40 Years On

We’re revisiting The Cure’s Faith album, released 40 years ago this month.

From the fog-shrouded photo of Bolton Priory on its cover, The Cure's third album oozes with gloomy atmosphere. Still, years away from the pop-flavoured hits that would make the band world-famous, Faith shows frontman Robert Smith, bassist Simon Gallup, and drummer Lol Tolhurst squarely – and very effectively - in goth mode.

Titles like “The Funeral Party,” “The Drowning Man” and “All Cats Are Grey” reflect a mood of despair that dominates the Elektra collection, which was released 40 years ago this month. The spectral majesty of Faith continues to cast a spell over listeners - even those who don't paint their fingernails black.
