The Head On The Door (Deluxe)
THE HEAD ON THE DOOR was a pivotal album for U.K. alternative rockers The Cure, with some key lineup changes (the return of bassist Simon Gallup, the addition of guitarist/keyboardist Porl Thompson) and a crystallization of the band's signature sound. It was on this 1985 collection that Robert Smith and company perfected the mix of emotional desolation and pop accessibility that would make The Cure international stars; with such catchy singles as “Inbetween Days” and “Close to Me” and some of their most imaginative arrangements, the album was a hit across Europe, and broke into the Top 100 in the U.S., a first for the group. The Deluxe Edition of THE HEAD ON THE DOOR adds 18 bonus tracks - including home/studio demo or live versions of every song on the album - and is the perfect way to celebrate Gallup's 55th birthday today!
