Say want you want about Robert Smith, the guy knows what he likes. Since The Twilight Sad released their last LP, 2015’s critically acclaimed Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave,The Curefront-man has given James Graham and Andy MacFarlane more than his seal of approval. He’s invited them on tour, offered mentorship and stood as a powerful champion for them. And they’ve repaid him with what, in many respects is exactly the record you would expect someone to make if they’d gone to see The Cure live every other night over a period of several months. And let’s not mince words: I love The Cure. I grew up with Robert Smith’s music and consider his work one of the most enduring and irreplaceable artistic and musical touchstones in my life. If you think The Cure are a good thing, and ever find yourself hankering after the cold tension of Faith or the sweeping cinematic grandeur of Disintegration, then there’s a lot in It Won/t Be Like This All The Time that you will want to find time for, even if it’s a record understandably prone to stand or fall on that basis.
