Curve – The Way of Curve

As tonight is Halloween I thought I would put something topical up.  I was a bit disappointed that Lush’s Spooky had already gone up so I thought that Curve’s Horror Head EP would be a good alternative.  To be honest if I want to listen to Horror Head EP I would not get the record out, but get my copy of The Way of Curve CD.

A double CD tribute to the late great Curve. It is a catalogue of their best moments a retrospective without being the ‘Best of’. The first disc is all the singles in chronological order, which naturally starts off with Ten Little Girls. Why, oh why, did they let MC JC001 loose on a couple of verses.

The second disc features rarities’ from the Superblaster EP that was only available in Germany, and a single for the album Disguise. There are covers of Ian Dury’s What a Waste, the Kevin Shields remix of Coming Up Roses and Donna Summer’s I Feel Love. It does not have my own personal favourite Curve b-side, the cathartic No Escape from Heaven, which was featured on the The Blindfold EP.

The whole album is very polished from start to finish. I am a very much a fan of the early nineties output, up until Doppelganger, but this has manager to stretch my interest beyond the nineties.
