The Cure - Friday I'm In Love.

Standing on a Beach (titled Staring at the Sea in CD format in some countries) is a singles compilation album released by English rock band the Cure in May 1986, marking a decade since the band's founding in 1976. The album's titles are both taken from the opening lyrics of the Cure's debut single, "Killing an Arab".

Standing on a Beach (or Staring at the Sea on CD versions) is the first Greatest Hits compilation by The Cure, named after lyrics from the band’s debut single, Killing an Arab. Covering every commercially released single of theirs between 1978 and 1986, it is considered by some critics to be one of the finest singles collections ever made

Black plastic tape, red label, black print. Packaged in clear plastic case with 2 sided 4 panel fold out sleeve.

No matter how carefully crafted the Cure's individual albums were, their finest moments occurred on singles like these, when they distilled their essence into surprisingly catchy, but decidedly left-of-center, pop singles. Staring at the Sea not only selects highlights from their uneven early albums, it collects many of the group's terrific non-LP singles. It's a definitive retrospective of the Cure and is one of the finest albums of the '80s.

An excellent compilation from The Cure. I had the tape of the exact CD back in 1986 and it was one of my first "best of" or "compilation" of a band. There is just something about The Cure. They have a good sound and some really good songs. I had this album as a teenager in the early 80s, on vinyl (Standing on a beach), and it still sounds fantastic.
