About the Album
Wild Mood Swings is the tenth studio album by British alternative rock band the Cure, released on 7 May 1996 through record label Fiction. Robert Smith has gone on record to say, “It’s one of my top five favourite Cure albums.” Wild Mood Swings charted at number nine in the UK Albums Chart, staying on chart for six weeks, and charted at number 12 in the US Billboard 200. Four singles were released from the album, the first being “The 13th”, released in April 1996, followed by “Mint Car”released in June, “Strange Attraction”released in United States in October and “Gone!”released in Europe in December 1996.
“Jupiter Crash”was played on the 2004 Curiosa Tour, and “Want”was usually played as the third song during the 2000 Bloodflowers Tour. Wild Mood Swings received a mixed response from critics. A favourable review came from Trouser Press, which described the album as “a potent and sweeping dissertation on melancholy and tentative dreams denied”, calling it “consistently compelling”. However, the album was the lowest-selling Cure album in 12 years, and it marked the beginning of a downward trend in the Cure’s future album sales.
