anyone else bought the new eponymous album from The Cure? it's produced by Ross Robinson (Korn etc.) I prefer it to the sombre IMO subdued Bloodflowers album from 2000. Simon Gallup seems to use Gibson Thunderbirds for most of it (as seen in the DVD with the deluxe edition), although the single "The end of the world" sounds like a Rick, with a bit of chorus. most of the songs sound like drop-D tuning on the bass. fave tracks so far are the aforementioned song, The promise and Truth, goodness and beauty.
