As a kid I also though Pornography was a little claustrophobic and cold, but when I bought it for the eldest during her Cure phase (we all have one), I found it to be an immensely enjoyable record, still pretty dark, but not the slow motion dirge of Faith. The lyrics are coming from a similar place though......"Doesn't matter if we all die"......"Feels Like a Hundred years"..."In the hanging garden change the past".... didn't sound a happy puppy on the whole during that whole period. You can see why they went a bit pop, just to bloody cheer themselves up!

Yes I have had a similar experience with pornography. The last few times I've listened to it I've quite enjoyed it, but couldn't get into it as a teenager. And you're right of course about the lyrics. Just the opposite with Faith. For the most part, I've always found listening to the cure quite therapeutic - appreciating someone capturing these really intense and extreme mind sets on record that maybe aren't that wholesome but are nevertheless real. I don't find it depressing at all in the main. He does seem to go through really wild mood swings on his records.
