    Absolutely horrible!!! This is monotonous spoken word drive, not music!l! Every "song" sounds exactly the same...boring and contrived!!! The Lyrics mean absolutely nothing!!!

    If this were billed as a Nick Cave solo album, and if it were just him at the piano, it would be fairly good. As it is, Warren’s synth loops are an affront to everything the Bad Seeds once stood for musically. This album is good for millennials, but for old fans of the band, it’s an unlistenable atrocity.
  • Surprise masterpiece

    Out of nowhere with only a week’s notice, nick cave announced the release of this album with album art that fittingly contrasts that of Skeleton Tree. The album follows the spell cast in Push the Sky Away, relying on pads, ambience and loops to create amazingly dense soundscapes and atmospheres. This time the idea is complete. The songs forgo almost all drum work, relying on mood and melody and voice, yet somehow it is just as captivating as The Bad Seeds more bombastic work. The album is in a word “Gorgeous”. These are easily some of the most beautiful and enchanting pieces Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have ever created.

    This album is amazing on so many levels! It is complex yet so simple and elegant, raw and nourishing! The innovative sounds change the experience of the listeners ten fold, it calms and it invokes thinking. There are so many complex layers of emotions it will take awhile to peel them apart. The music is a state of meditation flow. It is for the intellectual and the everyday listener. Get this amazing album now!

    This is deeply affecting art from extreme grief. Hard but profound and ennobling. I cried a little when I listened in a coffee shop with my daughter studying across from me. Full of love.

    I really like the music. His voice is so great for this type of mystical music that takes you to another time and place.

    It's as if his entire career has been pinpointed directly towards this effortless, overwhelmingly beautiful release; capable of conjuring up heavenliness and despair all within the crooned uttering of every single word. This album has struck me in a way nothing quite else ever has, and I am humbled and overjoyed to comprehend its exsistence in this world. Nick, thank you. Thank you for pressing on. You are an absolute hero

    I will be the first to admit that Nick Cave is not one of my favorites. I have a few of his albums and some selected cuts, but they are rarely listened to. However, this album has some of the most beautiful recent recordings I've heard. Give it listen.
