Wild Mood Swings is the 10th studio album by British alternative rock band the Cure, released on 7 May 1996 through record label Fiction. After Wish, it seemed the Cure was on the brink of being disbanded due to the departure of Porl Thompson and Boris Williams. Simon Gallup was also forced to take a vacation due to health problems, which narrowed the lineup down to Robert Smith and Perry Bamonte

Many Cure fans dislike Wild Mood Swings. Not me, though: I like it more than Wish. For one thing, it's much more energetic, with 14 songs that last an hour, whereas Wish had 13 songs lasting 66 minutes. Although Wish has many good songs, somehow they can get to sound monotonous if you listen to the whole album straight through. The songs on Wild Mood Swings, however, move along much faster, mostly avoiding this problem. More importantly, Wild Mood Swings really has the light touch. Want" is the only anthem on the album. Much of Wild Mood Swings indulges the lounge-act side of The Cure. This is exactly why many Cure fans hate it, but I can't get enough. This was always part of The Cure.

What stops ‘Wild Mood Swings’ from ranking up there with the goths best is that, as hinted at before, it doesn’t really know what it wants to be. It flows quite neatly with solid track after solid track but doesn’t really connect that much either. There’s no extreme darkness tying things together, nor is their an abundance of top 20 hit potential that muster a catchy, anthemic feel. What we have is material that’s fine, and at times quite enjoyable indeed. Although it sounds brash, most of the album is rather average and not that memorable. One can’t say that The Cure didn’t try to be creative, with the wide array of styles on offer, but at the same time, that’s what holds the record back. Wild Mood Swings’ really needs that strong distinction of gloom or guitar pop that previous efforts held onto. In other words, it feels like an album without great direction - not gothic, not polished radio-rock, just unfamiliar and unconcerned.

Wild Mood Swings 1996. Drained from maintaining the business entity the Cure had become, and the extensive touring, Smith took his time reforming the band. Although, by his own admission, Smith constructed many of the songs with radio play in mind, the Cure’s extended break cost the band dearly in public profile, setting up Wild Mood Swings for commercial failure. When we came back to do Wild Mood Swings, I got that sense of fun back. And it shows in the album; there are some pretty demented songs on there. But it was a shame, because it got slagged when it came out.
