Additional infoScarce 1992 UK Fiction 12-track 2LP set - bands 7th album... the sparkling ecstatic, ambitious continuation of British indie-goth-rock combos more pop infused albums 'The Walk', 'The Top' and 'The Head On The Door'... creepy-crawly romantic reveries intact.

"Every major mode of the Cure is here, and sounding better than ever, each one a realm of its own. There's grand, tormented wailing ("The Kiss", "Fight") next to tender, sunny numbers ("Catch"). There are creepy-crawly Orientalist nightmares ("The Snake Pit", "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep") and slow, sparkling romances ("One More Time"). There are bitter shouts ("Shiver and Shake"), all-pop numbers ("Just Like Heaven"), and complex intersections between the two ("Hot Hot Hot", "Why Can't I Be You?"). "*

'Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me' features the singles "Why Can't I Be You?", "Catch", "Just Like Heaven" & "Hot Hot Hot!!!".

Vinyls have custom picture labels, held in illustrated credits and lyric inner sleeves - ultimately in a glossy picture sleeve.

Condition: 2xVG++/VG++ (Vinyls and Labels/Inner Sleeves)/VG++ (Cover):
Ovewrall a superb copy - wonderfully lustrous and extremely close to mint vinyl, hardly any signs of use to labels - placed in near mint inner sleeves and a very close to mint cover - nice.
