Ranking The Cure - From 'Three Imaginary Boys' to '4:13 Dream'

Today marks the third edition of a special series within my weekly feature, Friday on the Turntable. Instead of looking at one album, I am featuring all of The Cure's records from 1979 - 2008 - and ranking them! It was a mammoth task, and proved frustrating when putting albums that I love against other ones that I love. Nonetheless, I've provided a ranked list - from #14 - #1. Although technically a compilation, I decided to include 1983's Japanese Whispers in the ranking - reason provided in the video.

If you would like the short / textual version of the list, please scroll past the video. As always, I look forward to reading your comments and feedback.
