Pornography is the fourth studio album by British band The Cure, originally released in 1982 and re-mastered and re-released in 2005. Once described as "Phil Spector in Hell", it is "The Cure's most gothic album".
Recorded with the group on the brink of collapse, it represents the conclusion of the musical phase which began with Seventeen Seconds and Faith. Robert Smith has stated that Pornography is the first of his "trilogy" of albums that best define The Cure, the second being Disintegration and the third being Bloodflowers.
Slant Magazine listed the album at #79 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980's".
Often cited as The Cure's darkest album, its opening lyrical line is "It doesn't matter if we all die", ending with "I must fight this sickness, find a cure". The line "It doesn’t matter if we all die" is considered as "The Cure’s gothic piece de resistance".
Despite the fact that very few critics in the British press gave the album a favourable review, Pornography charted well in the UK and has gained much more respect over the years, to the point that it is now considered "one of the key gothic rock albums" of all time.
Pornography is also the last Cure album to feature
