No to Wish. I didn't know whether to both Seventeen Seconds or Faith - they're both at the same level of acclaim. So I bolded neither. However, once I add italics, Head on the Door is going Red and Seventeen Seconds (slightly more acclaimed) goes bold.

Might as well finish off the trilogy and listen to Bloodflowers. Faith and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me are really good choices too.

I love Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me so much. In the Cure's discography I think it'd be the next up for a red after Disintegration

another test case for a large discography with three tiers.

Should I make Staring at the Sea an orange as well? Its one of the few greatest-hits albums that are completely essential. But it seems wrong to give a Greatest Hits album an orange if it isn't something like "Bona Drag" or "Substance" that collects important non-album stuff.

Kiss Me x3 blew me away last night. Very few duds at all, which is impressive for an album of its length.

There's a maximum of two oranges per artists, but that's only for bands with vast (re: Neil Young) discographies or The Beatles.

I saw that, the Cure's discography is pretty big. Hell I'm pretty sure The Cure's discography is at least as big as The Beatles, which kind of makes your point moot. Why add such an artificial constraint though? I don't see the purpose of limiting it that narrowly. I understand you're trying to pinpoint the most important release/releases, but If I were to suggest required listening to The Cure, I would always choose both. They're both equally acclaimed, they're both cornerstones of the respective style and era for the band, why not? Pornography is pretty much a flagship Cure release and probably a top five goth/post punk album. I just don't see the point of adding such an artificial restriction "just because."
