Japanese Whispers may be regarded formally as a compilation (even though it only contains songs unreleased on any albums...), in that case Standing On A Beach should definitively move to the compilation section too: it only contains songs also published on albums, except Charlotte Sometimes which was only released as a single. The jury is out on Boys Don't Cry, which for all intents and purposes is also a compilation of songs coming from the debut album Three Imaginary Boys, with a few singles added for good measure.

Personally I would live happily with three sections only for The Cure: (1) LP (2) EP/Singles and (3) Box Sets. The Compilation category is quite confusing for this band.

Simply put: one of the greatest UK bands in the history of music. Writing, performing - whatever. I'd put them up there with the Beatles Zep, Stones, et al. One of the best live bands I've ever seen and I last saw them in 2016. Brilliant.

I have been in Nijmegen where are many record stores. They sold the Cure Show (2021) as an unofficial double vinyl for 25€. Does anyone know if there is also an unofficial the cure Paris vinyl on the way?

Really wish that they would re-issue Pornography and The Top deluxe editions in the jewelcases, like they did with TIB, SS, Faith, THOTD and KMKMKM

Travelled from UK to Budapest, to see the Cure again, adUK tickets sold out so quickly. Have seen the band lots of times in UK since the late 70's, and have to say they are still the world's best band.
