Nick Cave:

Best IMNSHO: Dig Lazarus Dig!! (but closely followed by No More Shall We Part)
Worst: Murder Ballads (a cartoonish collection of, well, murder ballads. but closely followed by Nocturama, which is just sort of why-bother)

Really interesting choices here. No More Shall We Part would be my choice for his best - as compelling a blend of lovelorn musings and raw eccentricity as I've heard. I suspect that the choice of Murder Ballads for worst will generate some discussion, though.

I suspect it will too. I gather that Murder Ballads is quite highly regarded. But I regard the mid nineties as a pretty low point for Mr Cave. The Boatman's Call marked something of a resurgence.

Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus is phenomenal.

Not sure I've heard enough of his full albums to pick a definitive worst. The Boatman's Call maybe.

Let Love In is far and away my favorite.

Let Love In is my favorite as well, with No More Shall We Part a close second.

Dig Lazarus Dig is my least favorite of what I've heard, but I haven't heard his earliest work, or Nocturama. A lot of people shit on that album.

I like Nocturama quite a bit.

But Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus is the best, no contest.

Best Cat Power Album: You Are Free
Worst Cat Power Album: Jukebox (worst non-covers album would surely be Dear Sir)


Guided By Voices

I'm going to to the exact opposite tack and say

Best Catpower album: Moonpix
Worst: You Are Free

I know most Cat Power fans prefer the older work but I'll take The Greatest over all.

Jukebox is a slog though if you took one album's worth from it you may have something better than The Covers Record.


As for GBV:

Best: Bee Thousand
Worst: Vampire on Titus

I know it's cliche but my best is just too good to ignore. Alien Lanes would be damned close. While old schoolers love to pick on Do The Collapse, I think it's better than Vampire On Titus. That and Propeller are the only two really old ones I know.
