This reissue sounds pretty good, though the new mastering doesn't reveal any major surprises. The bonus material ranges from good to excellent; I particular enjoy the live disc (from 1989 gigs) which redoes the whole album in order in versions similar to the album versions but still interesting, as Smith's vocals are well recorded. The demos and outtakes are almost all instrumental, but if you're a Cure fan(atic), you can maintain the mood for an extra hour plus. There must be much more in the vaults, as the Cure's website recently posted another whole disc's worth of outtakes annoyingly not on this reissue, called Alternative Rarities, which is easy enough to find if you are so inclined.
Two quibbles: first, the liner notes are a bit skimpy, as they have been during this whole reissue campaign, AND ARE PRINTED IN ALL-CAPS, WHICH IS SUPER ANNOYING (doesn't Johnny Black know that sensitive Cure fans don't like being yelled at??); second, even though the Join The Dots box collected all of the band's b-sides (a majority of which are quite good), in my opinion expanded reissues should include all contemporaneous material, and songs like the beautiful "To The Sky", "Babble", "Out Of Mind", "2 Late" and "Fear Of Ghosts" belong here.
Here's "2 Late", which would have been out of place on Disintegration (too chipper), but remains one of my favorite Cure b-sides:
