[originally published 5/18/14, updated 11/6/14]

with the acquisition of the Join the Dots box set, I've pretty much finished off my collection for my favorite band, The Cure. I've got all the studio albums, all the compilations, the remix album, the 1978-2001 B-sides box set, and a few singles. really all I'm missing now are the live albums and DVDs, which I've never had much of an interest in.

all of these are the various US pressings except for Three Imaginary Boys, which is a Fiction European pressing manufactured in France, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, which is a Fiction European pressing manufactured in West Germany.

left stack, top to bottom:

- Three Imaginary Boys
- Boys Don't Cry (American version of Three Imaginary Boys with altered tracklist)
- Seventeen Seconds
- Faith
- fourth album idk I can say the name of on this website
- Japanese Whispers: The Singles (collection of non-album singles and B-sides)
- The Top
- The Head on the Door
- Staring at the Sea: The Singles 1978-1986
- Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me

- Disintegration

right stack, top to bottom:

- Mixed Up
- Wish
- Wild Mood Swings
- Galore: The Singles 1987-1997
- Bloodflowers
- Greatest Hits (limited edition with Acoustic Hits bonus disc)
- The Cure
- 4:13 Dream

- The Only One (CD single)
- Sleep When I'm Dead (CD single)

on the bottom, joining the stacks together:

- Join the Dots: B-Sides & Rarities 1978-2001 box set (4 discs, 70 tracks housed in a hardcover 75-page digibook)

owned but not pictured:

- Disintegration 2010 remaster on double vinyl LP

I would've updated this over a month ago when I picked up the new album Siren Charms, but as it turns out, the entire first pressing of the deluxe edition was defective. after a few weeks of waiting, the record label finally offered people corrected replacement discs about a week ago. I received mine in the mail just yesterday.

at one point in the past these guys were my favorite band, and this collection is quite possibly the most complete that I own, just slightly ahead of Katatonia - between bonus tracks and B-sides, I've got basically every finished, studio-recorded song the band has released.

from top to bottom:

- Lunar Strain (2005 Candlelight Records reissue)
- Subterranean EP (2005 Candlelight Records reissue)
- The Jester Race (2008 Reloaded edition + Black-Ash Inheritance EP)
- Whoracle (2008 Reloaded edition)
- Colony (2008 Reloaded edition)
- Clayman (2008 Reloaded edition)

- Reroute to Remain
- Trigger EP
- Soundtrack to Your Escape
- Come Clarity
- A Sense of Purpose

- The Mirror's Truth EP (German pressing)
- Sounds of a Playground Fading
- Siren Charms (deluxe edition)


also owned but not pictured:

- Lunar Strain/Subterranean (single-disc compilation including both the full-length debut and its follow-up EP, sans the bonus tracks available on the individual reissues)
- "Discover Me Like Emptiness" (bonus track for Soundtrack to Your Escape, bought separately from AmazonMP3)
- "Self vs. Self" (collaboration with Pendulum from that artist's Immersion album, bought separately from AmazonMP3)
- "The Chase" (iTunes-exclusive bonus track for Siren Charms)
- first press edition of Reroute to Remain featuring variant artwork (black border around the usual image)
- a nifty In Flames magnet included with the purchase of Siren Charms through FYE, features the Purpose/Playground-era logo

after getting a damaged copy, waiting for a refund, ordering another, waiting an unusually long time for it to be shipped, and then finally getting the final piece needed today, I've completed another discography collection.

from top to bottom:

- Something Wild (2008 deluxe reissue)
- Hatebreeder (2008 deluxe reissue)
- Follow the Reaper (US edition)
- Hate Crew Deathroll (US edition)
- Are You Dead Yet? (US edition)
- Blooddrunk (US edition)
- Halo of Blood

also owned, but not pictured:

- Relentless Reckless Forever (I own this digitally. I bought it entirely with free credits I saved up over the summer from an AmazonMP3 promotion a couple years back and I still felt ripped off. I even tried, unsuccessfully, to get it refunded by telling them I bought it by mistake. I absolutely hate this album with a passion and have no intention of ever wasting money on a physical copy. it's bad enough that I've wasted hard drive space on the MP3s. I'd rather just pretend the album doesn't even exist.)

controversy!

Posted by Ryuujin , Oct 08 2014 · 183 views

so I guess our definition of "controversy" now is "a lot of people talked about a thing"??

I've gotta say, the whole grammar thing is by far the least controversial controversy in the history of BZPower. it felt more like a BZPower fad than it did a controversy, just a bunch of people posting blog entries on the same subject while other people commented on them. unless I missed, like, an entire entry where some kind of fight broke out, all the comments and entries I saw were completely rational.

setting the bar for BZP drama pretty low there, guys. I feel like this entry is gonna end up more controversial than the "controversy" that inspired it.
