sumisu-san Compared with Blindfold, you can tell Curve were really starting to approach the sonic mastery of their first two albums here. It sounds like Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia got more interested creating the perfect blend of rock, electronics, and dream-like atmospheres as they got closer to dropping Doppelgänger. Favorite track: Coast Is Clear.

indigocircle if you're ignoring the sheer beauty of what Toni Halliday is able to do with Curve behind her, you're missing out on a gem of a period of electronic rock music. this EP speaks well to the strengths of their early output. Favorite track: Frozen.

Simon Booth Utterly unique when it came out... the depth of sound, the fusion of driving rhythms and twisted guitars, the killer basslines... the sheer _menace_ of The Colour Hurts... a truly seminal work! Favorite track: The Colour Hurts.

Scumbag Curve's second brilliant EP, one more step towards one of the great albums of the '90s! Continuing with the sound that made the first EP so brilliant and would continue to define the band's place in alternative rock history we are presented with another 4 flawless tracks! Favorite track: Coast Is Clear.

Som Shankar Original CD is of my most prized physical possessions. This music is more special than special. Some of the most lush, hard, sad, happy, angry, melancholy music ever created and I am forever grateful for it. Favorite track: The Colour Hurts.

Above my bed in this ugly room hangs the whisper of the sandman You can be my father for the love he has shown it's just a little to late it's never enough to swallow those pills now I'm sick and always will be Take it I don't want it you can have what you like just don't try to trick me to sleep then turn out those lights You can be my father for the love he has shown it's just a little to late it's never enough to swallow those pills now I'm sick and always will be Ah ah ah ah drains and radiators you can be my father drains and radiators for the love You can be my father for the love he has shown it's just a little to late it's never enough to swallow those pills now I'm sick and always will be Ah ah ah ah just when you thought it was alright just when you thought it was alright

The Colour Hurts

It was the beginning The final curtain descends The doorway to dating Has revealed, it's potence The colour hurts, in this last birth of sins Why do you grow inside me It smells of dew as it spirals to victory it says Why do you grow inside me Leave me alone I was doing okay before But now you're here, hold my hand Now you've won, I understand The colour hurts, in this last breath of sins Why do you grow inside me It smells of dew as it spirals to victory it says Why do you grow inside me Leave me alone.. {It's a younger world for the complex is an eternity} The colour hurts, in this last birth of sins Why do you grow inside me It smells of dew as it spirals to victory it says Why do you grow inside me Send me some rebirth It's a destiny of sorts Smell of the earth

In my eyes you smile like an angel blessed with love invest in life but in my heart you sound like a traitor blessed with sin invest in life In my heart and in my soul everywhere I go you are with me I can feel you everywhere a certain something in the air you are with me.. In your way you cry like a baby blessed with shame invest in life in the garden I will grow a hanging tree for all to know you are with me invest in life In my heart and in my soul everywhere I go you are with me I can feel you everywhere a certain something in the air you are with me.. In my heart in my soul everywhere I go you are with me
