Review: The Cure – Never Enough (Rock)

This review covers the rock track The Cure – Never Enough.

This track was released in 1990 as a single.

The track starts off with some guitars and some vocal elements. At some point, the actual vocals come in. They briefly drop out and an instrumental section takes over for a brief period of time. The vocal then come back in. The main chorus does make an appearance here.

A guitar solo does take over. They have a very rough sound to them. Shortly after, the main chorus comes back in. After this, the verse does take over again. After this, the track does break down again and ends.

For me, this track has a host of problems. The guitars and drum kit seem to overwhelm the vocals. Even though the vocals are technically audible, it actually takes effort to really hear what is being sung.

The second problem is that there is little involved with the lyrics. It is almost all chorus with a few repeats of some of the lines from the main chorus spread through the one verse I was able to hear.

The third problem I have is that the transitions end up being jumbled. While that may be a way to make the transitions seem smooth, in this case, it winds up being an audible mess. As a result, by the time I got to the end, I find myself asking what it was that I just heard.

With the few scraps of lyrics there are, there is a small hint of meaning. Unfortunately, with all the other problems in the track, I find myself having to dig for that meaning.

Generally speaking, this track winds up being very “blah” for a lack of a better term. The lyrics are minuscule. The guitars and drum kit drowns out the vocals and the elements wind up getting jumbled. I really did try to find something good about this track, but nothing I found was really worthy of a mention. So, for me, it winds up being a flop.
