Synopsis by Nathan Southern

As a volume of the series "Music in Review: The Essential Music of the Eighties," The Cure: Music in Review consists of two DVDs and an extensive book that trace the history of Robert Smith's trend-setting post-punk band from its debut LP, Three Imaginary Boys, through the critically acclaimed 1989 issue Disintegration. The DVDs feature a documentary that provides a detailed analysis and investigation of those factors that elevated the band to greatness through endless variations in membership, relying on rare concert footage of the Cure performing their greatest hits, including "The Top," "Bananafishbones," and "Piggy in the Mirror," and on exclusive interviews with pop music critics who analyze the albums on a one-by-one basis. Per the other volumes in the series, the material is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound for the ultimate listening experience.
