The Way of Curve is a compilation album by Curve.

The album consists of two discs: the first is basically a greatest hits disc, containing many of Curve's most famous and successful songs; the second contains rare tracks, including one ('In Disguise') that had never been released. All tracks were remastered for the release, though some of the tracks (such as "Die Like A Dog") had errors. Only 10,000 copies of the album were made[1] and it is now out-of-print, though it can be partially be downloaded from iTunes.

As Curve disbanded shortly after the album's release, The Way of Curve effectively became their career retrospective.

Miss Kittin used "Falling Free (Aphex Twin Mix)" on her mix album A Bugged Out Mix.[2]
