    Cursive is an American indie rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. Described as emo-tinged post-hardcore, Cursive came to prominence with 2000's Domestica and found commercial and critical success with 2003's The Ugly Organ. The band has released seven studio albums, a compilations album, and a mix of singles and EPs since 1997.

    Discuss how incredible Domestica and The Ugly Organ are.

    in 5 years when people are looking at this thread theyll be like "they had a special friendship" and thatll be cool.

    So this band is great huh.

    Domestica is amazing. Hoping this band still has another record or two in them...from speaking with Matt about Live at O'Leary's, I really believe they do.

    I'm also selling my copy of The Ugly Organ on vinyl, if anyone is interested.

    The Ugly Organ is fantastic. When I was like 14 I made a shirt that had the lyrics from Art is Hard on it and got complemented by the dude who worked at my local record store. Made my life

    Domestica and The Ugly Organ are flawless albums. Shame they never really did anything else on that same level. I've listened to the other albums Cursives made and theyre pretty good, just not quite the level of those 2 preceding masterpieces.

    Ugly Organ is incredible. Also thought Happy Hollow was really underrated. A little harder to get into maybe, but I appreciated how strictly it stuck to the overarching concept/story and still managed to be pretty damn catchy.

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    ^ Happy Hollow is most definitely underrated.

    I actually think Mama, I'm Swollen is underrated, maybe my second favorite after Domestica tbh

    we've seen the shadow of the axe before Prestigious

    Though I agree it is underrated, it probably falls somewhere around fourth for me. I actually think the bonus tracks and b-sides are better than a lot of what made that album.

    Happy Hollow and The Ugly Organ will always be my favorite.

    Burst & Bloom is a gem, also.

    I can always count on Audrey and Zac

    both are incredible pieces of music. I've always felt like The Ugly Organ (and now Domestica) were fundamental blueprints for future scene concept albums with a darker spin on them (Is A Real Boy, Trainwreck, What To Do When You're Dead, etc). Not to sell short the bands other releases, both those 2 are absolute masterpieces of incredible music and emotion.

    I love this band so much. I agree with the consensus that Domestica and The Ugly Organ are their best, but I don't think they have a bad album.

    Domestica was that life-changing album for me. I still remember buying it the summer before I started high school, and it's what got me into indie rock.

    Tea Leaf and ⅓ of Hora Douse.

    Haven't seen anyone mention the last album, but damn, I thought 'I Am Gemini' was sooooo good.

    Also, is it worth making a The Good Life thread too or should that stay in here? Black Out is one of my favourite records. I was so stoked to get to open for them in February when they came to the UK- Tim is such a sweetheart. :heart:
