The Cure's third album "Faith" from 1981 is, like the previous two albums made up of songs with simple, often riff-based song structures. It is not an album of obvious hits or catchy tunes, but an evocative album with an overall consistency that some might find a bit dull, while others will probably find it alluring.

Personally, I miss songs that significantly stand out from the rest, like "M", "A Forest", "Boys Do not Cry" or the later "Friday I'm in Love". Still a nice and solid album. My favourite track is ”Other Voices”
