"I've always liked listening to The Cure, having grown up with their music. However I realized after seeing this for sale that I had never actually seen any of their music videos (save High and maybe Lovecats randomly on late night MTV). My opinion of the band has grown to a new level since purchasing this DVD. I have to start out by saying that everything on this DVD maintains the creative and emotion-evoking qualities I have grown to love from this band. Even the menu is cool how its over-saturated, moody dark blue tones are backdrop to a single, slowly spinning star. The experience is hard to define as anything but very Cure-ish. It's also fun to watch the videos chronologically as the band develops its artistic style. Seeing A Forest for the first time I couldn't believe how buttoned down and conservative they looked! The sound is also awesome. Listening to the songs in Dolby 5.1 really allows you to hear how layered and complex they really are (the songs not the band). Anyway, I would definitely recommend this DVD to anyone who is at all interested in The Cure. The video quality is superb (especially the acoustic songs) and hearing the songs in 5.1 makes it that much better. I'm totally glad I bought this disc and will enjoy watching it for years to come."

"hi,i am a 13 year old boy,who's favorite band is The Cure,and no i'm not depressed,so in other words i missed the prime of my favorites band.Over my summer breaks and winter breaks i wathc video's all the time,but never see a cure video hardly at all (as a matter of fact i have seen one cure video,and it was "friday i'm in love")Anyway,this video changed all this for me,i now can see the video's to pretty much all my favorite cure songs on this video,except for "jump someone elses train"&"drip"(which both should have been included)well anyway as i said i am a 13 year old kid who's favorite band is the cure,and this video has made me even more of a fan."
A good collection for a good price

"I am not a HUGE Cure fan, but I like them enough to want to own this dvd. I was impressed when I put it in my player. While the packaging doesn't mention that a 5.1 mix is included, it is. I have bought a few music dvd's that just say "Dolby Digital" that only contain a 2-channel mix. (The Eurythmics dvd even had a sticker that said there was a 5.1 mix but the disc contained only a stereo track!)The video quality is good, the surround mix is well done (and a 2-channel version is also included). I really like the acoustic versions. The accompanying video doesn't look that strange to me...no more strange than the Cure usually looks. (That's a good thing!)What puts this at a 5-star level for me is that it has a generous number of tracks (not even including the hidden "easter egg" tracks) and a good price."
