Nabi­hah Iqbal

A For­est (from Seven­teen Sec­onds, 1980)

Q (UK) - - Cure -

“I’ve lis­tened to this track maybe a thou­sand times since I first heard it when I was 17, and each time it just feels more and more pow­er­ful. There’s a poignancy in the song that most mu­sic fails to cap­ture. Smith’s vocals seem dead­pan yet full of emo­tion at the same time. The phaser on the gui­tar makes the song sound like it’s from an­other world and it sweeps you up into it, and plunges you right into the dream for­est, search­ing for the elu­sive girl.”
