    General CommentThis song is just epic. To me, it makes me think of all those alien invasion movies or games, where they just have one major battle where its like thousands of thousands of enemies against you and your thousands and thousands of people. Then the battle, and then rather abruptly, the battle is over. The whole landscape around them is nearly completely destroyed, but they look around, they've won. "The Cure" may be referring to hope, hoping that this huge fight won't have to happen again. I can see this song in a WW2 movie.

    General CommentI don't know how, but this song is brutal and beautiful at the same time. It took one more release for me to know that Explosions is one of the best bands of my generation.

    General CommentI think the comes in two parts. The beginning must be Catasrophe and the second part must be the cure. The ending is a bit more inline and tame.

    General CommentI feel like the beginning is the catastrophe, which slowly leads into the final ballad of the cure towards the end. This song helps me think so well...listening to this song makes me feel emotionally confused but absolutely complete at the same time, never before has an any music stopped me in my tracks as firmly as explosions.

    General CommentDrums kind of sound like weapons firing, don't they? Either way, this song feels like conflict that stops and then starts again. Almost like a cycle..."the cure" never really cures for long.
