The more I look into this song, the more I realize how much work was put into it, for the whole album really. Lead singer/songwriter Robert Smith had such a distinct vision for how the track, and album were to turn out, and in order to achieve it, the band spent on average 16-17 hours a day. The dedication paid off, as ‘A Forest’ is one of the darkest, best written, and best produced songs in the Cure catalogue. A simple, but never ceasing in keeping tension building throughout, every instrument here is playing exactly what is necessary, and that’s a pretty great thing.
