[originally published 5/18/14, updated 11/6/14, bumped 1/29/15 because I frigging love The Cure]

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

upon receiving A Taste of Extreme Divinity in the mail today, I've pretty much completed my Hypocrisy collection. I'm still missing some things - like their first three albums which are different in style and just not as good in my opinion, and both versions of the band's horrible attempt at cashing in on the nu-metal craze with Catch 22 - but all of the core albums in the band's discography that display their unique mix of death metal, melody, spacey atmospherics, and lyrical themes obsessed with the paranormal, extraterrestrial, and horror that make them one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time are represented now.

from top to bottom:

- The Final Chapter
- Hypocrisy (German digipak edition)
- Into the Abyss
- The Arrival
- Virus (CD/DVD limited edition)
- A Taste of Extreme Divinity (U.S. limited edition)
- End of Disclosure (digipak limited edition)

also owned, but not pictured:

- Abducted (2003 reissue, owned digitally because the CD is hard to find at a decent price)

normally I post complete collections, but I'm very quickly running out of those so here's one that's only mostly complete.

I'm currently missing the original 2002 version of Nothing, the EP I (which was just reissued last year, but I haven't been able to find it yet), and the Rare Trax compilation.

from top to bottom:

- Contradictions Collapse (2008 reissue with 4/5 of the None EP as bonus tracks)
- Destroy Erase Improve (2008 reissue with the other 1/4 of the None EP as a bonus track, among others)
- Chaosphere (2008 reissue with The True Human Design EP as bonus tracks)
- Catch Thirtythree
- Nothing (2006 remixed/remastered/partly re-recorded reissue)
- ObZen
- Koloss

also owned, but not pictured:

- Pitch Black EP (free digital download from Scion A/V, also included as bonus tracks on the 2014 reissue of the I EP)

TRU had them all but I chose Pohatu because he was the very first Bionicle set I ever got, back in late 2000.

recently bought up the last few albums I needed and finally finished my collection for one of my top 10 favorite bands of all time.

left stack, top to bottom:

- Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good! (1990 pressing which omits "These Boots". might get another copy eventually that includes it.)
- Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
- So Far, So Good... So What!
- Rust in Peace (one of my favorite albums ever)
- Countdown to Extinction
- Youthanasia
- Hidden Treasures (B-sides/rarities compilation EP)
- Cryptic Writings (HDCD pressing)

right stack, top to bottom:

- Risk (remixed & remastered version. I hate this album, but if I had to choose, I'd say this version is more tolerable because it removes some of the ill-advised synths.)
- The World Needs a Hero
- The System Has Failed
- Greatest Hits: Back to the Start (signed by frontman Dave Mustaine)
- United Abominations
- Endgame (best album they've done since RiP)
- Th1rt3en
- Super Collider (Best Buy edition with three bonus tracks and a 3D cover. not a very good album though.)

here's hoping that the new album they're recording now will be just as good as Endgame, if not better.

I got their new album and completed my collection of their only good ones.

nope, I'm not missing any albums at all. third and fourth albums? what third and fourth albums?

from top to bottom:

- Burn My Eyes
- The More Things Change...
- Through the Ashes of Empires (US edition with bonus track "Seasons Wither")
- The Blackening (2-disc special edition with two bonus cover tracks)
- Unto the Locust
- Bloodstone & Diamonds

no, but seriously, this collection is technically incomplete. you couldn't even pay me to buy The Burning Red or Supercharger.


I got a Megadeth CD signed by Dave Mustaine
