Curium Albums

This is a comprehensive list of Curium songs and frankly a blatant exercise in personal myth-making. Like scratching my name in a tree after I cut it down.

For the first six albums, the track-listings refer to the original tape versions. The CD track listings are often different and superior although in some cases a track or two have been removed in the transition from 90 to 80 minute limits and two songs have moved back where they belong i.e. from "Comfort" to "Faded!".
