The Top is the fifth studio album by British alternative rock band the Cure, released on 30 April 1984 by record label Fiction. It entered the UK Albums Chart at N°10 on 12 May. Shortly after its release, the Cure embarked on a major UK tour culminating with a three-night residency at the Hammersmith Odeon in London.

Album released 1984 All songs published by Fiction Songs. Digitally remastered at Universal Mastering, London. The Cure Piggy In The Mirror The Top 3:41. The Cure The Empty World The Top 2:37. The Cure Birdmad Girl The Top 4:06. The Cure - The Top 6:49.

That said, it's still very much a Cure record. Heavy on the percussion and quaint keyboard effects that were so big in the '80s, the melodies ("The Caterpillar," "Shake Dog Shake") are unmistakably Robert Smith. The big change this time around is his ability to fuse the paranoia and neuroses of former work (Pornography) with his newfound use of pop melody and outside influences (. world travels, sounds, instruments) to moderate success ("Wailing Wall," "Piggy in the Mirror").

The Top. Words by Robert Smith. I don’t care If only I could say that And not feel so sick and scared I don’t care If only I could say that If only my eyes would close. It’s Jesus brilliant You used to laugh Walking these gorgeous block. his top is the place Where nobody goes You just imagine You just imagine it all. Every day I lie here And know that it’s true.

A . currently and it is rather sad considering this is the most underrated gem out of their catalog. Now this is a loaded gun term because there are some that say it is either "Wish" or "Bloodflowers" or even Emo Cure that is underrated. However, upon listening to all of these albums several times, they do not match up to the schizophrenic yet somewhat moody "The Top". Released during the aftermath of Simon Gallup leaving the band, the yin to Robert Smith's.

The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), reached number forty-four on the UK Albums Chart. The next two albums, Seventeen Seconds (1980) and Faith (1981), were top 20 hits in the UK, reaching number twenty and number fourteen respectively

Album The Top. The Top Lyrics. I don't care If only I could say that and not feel so sick and scared I don't care If only I could say that If only my eyes would close
