Although the album was initially criticized in the press, it is now considered one of the highlights, if not the best in The Cure catalog. The album also marked a real turning point in the history of the group. She was made under the influence of drink and drugs masses, leading to mental stress in the group. Besides, the leader of the group, Robert Smith , had trouble loosening of the dark atmosphere of most songs of the group. The album begins with the telltale phrase "It does not matter if we all die ', ending with' I will fight this sickness, find the cure," what good the process the band expresses made during the making of the album . It was clear that there were only two options after Pornography: either stop or interact with music in a slightly lighter way. It has become the second choice, which immediately turned on the successor Japanese Whispers .
The album was re-released in 2005 with additional bonus CD with demo and live versions of existing songs in the group supplemented with some demos of non-released material.
