updated once again with my final acquisition (until they come out with something new, anyway). aside from live stuff, the discography is now pretty much complete. at some point in the future I'd like to upgrade my copies of Discouraged Ones, Tonight's Decision and The Great Cold Distance to their respective reissued or deluxe versions, but that's not currently a top priority.

tried to get an actual shot of everything from above instead of just another picture of the sides of the cases. unfortunately the picture's a bit dark since I had to turn off the overhead lights to avoid glare.

left-hand side:
- Kocytean EP (Record Store Day exclusive 12" vinyl compiling B-sides from the band's last three releases)

right-hand side, first row:
- Dance of December Souls (2007 reissue featuring Jhva Elohim Meth...The Revival EP as bonus tracks)
- For Funerals to Come EP (2011 reissue featuring bonus tracks)
- Brave Murder Day (2006 reissue featuring Sounds of Decay EP as bonus tracks)

right-hand side, second row:
- Discouraged Ones (Century Black US pressing)
- Tonight's Decision
- Last Fair Deal Gone Down (2011 10th anniversary 2-disc digibook reissue)

right-hand side, third row:
- Viva Emptiness (Icarus Argentina pressing)
- Viva Emptiness (2013 10th anniversary digibook reissue)
- The Great Cold Distance

right-hand side, fourth row:
- Night Is the New Day (2011 tour edition reissue)
- Dead End Kings
- Dethroned & Uncrowned (2-disc digibook edition acoustic album)

also, because I love you and want to make you sad happy, here's one of the band's best songs, from the July single and Kocytean EP:

picked this up for a mere $4 in excellent condition. best price I've gotten on a double album since I found The Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness for $5 a few years back.

[originally published 5/18/14, updated 6/26/14]

also decided to update and republish this because I finally ordered and received a copy of the band's original Europe-only debut Three Imaginary Boys. I now own every single studio album and non-promotional compilation the band has released, including the remix album Mixed Up and the limited first-press edition of Greatest Hits featuring the acoustic bonus disc.

the only thing that could possibly make this collection more thorough and complete, outside of live stuff which I have no interest in, is the Join the Dots: B-Sides & Rarities box set, which I do hope to pick up someday but for now have neither the money nor the space to add it to my collection.

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 the original Fiction UK 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
- Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me

right stack, top to bottom:

- Disintegration (is the best album ever)
- 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

owned but not pictured:

- The Crow soundtrack (includes the track "Burn", which in my opinion is their best post-Disintegration song)
- Sleep When I'm Dead (CD single)
- The Only One (CD single)
