Is the Cure worse than the disease?

Stereogum just saved me ten bucks by linking to an audio stream of the new Cure album. I was optimistic about it after hearing the opening track, "Lost", which actually sounds slightly different than your average Cure song (a little more driving, a little more rocking, a little more impassioned), and I liked the Arabic-tinged accompaniment to "Labyrinth"...but then it all turned into more hook-free Cure-by-the-numbers. Guess I'll just have to stick to the upcoming series of Cure reissues.
