This is something I love about Nick Cave albums, because everyone seems to be drawn to different tracks.

Did anyone else here post a review on iTunes? I post under Achtung Fly, and I just found it odd that the other reviewer shared a U2-esque name, MacPhisto something or other.

Just found Murder Ballads and Boatman's Call at Barnes and Noble, and "Song of Joy" is incredibly creepy. Love it.

Having now heard everything from Muder Ballads on, I have to say the only Nick Cave album I've been disappointed by is Nocturama.

Indeed. For me, it's the most satisfying closer the band has placed on an album, or at least tied with "Darker With the Day" (my fave Nick Cave song). I do love "Babe, I'm On Fire," though. I just wish I knew more of Nick's history so I could really take in the references, the most I get right now is "Miss Polly."

Yeah, same here. Apart from Babe, I'm on Fire that album is pretty uninspiring and had me worried at the time.

Murder Ballads has some of the funniest songs ever, if you're partial to that brand of gallows humour,

This thread has got me listening to Murder Ballads again.

This album is almost unbelievably beautiful and frightening. Frighteningly beautiful if you will...

I agree, but I do like a few of the singles, generic as they may be. I have conflicted feelings here. "Bring it On" is generic-ish alt-rock, but it's Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds doing generic-ish alt-rock so it's actually not half bad - just not up to their standards. I don't hate "He Wants You" or "Rock of Gibraltar," either, but there's really nothing special about them. That album is just unfortunately stuck in the middle of an otherwise phenomenal string of albums.

I just got the Abattoir Blues Tour live album, downloaded from itunes since I'd never get around to watching the DVDs. As such, I have now been exposed to the live final verse of "Stagger Lee."

The man kills the Devil. Four holes in the motherfucker's head. The badassery here is beyond compare. I may end up making further revisions as I have not yet burned these discs.


And on the topic of Dig, Lazarus, Dig!! How perfect is Night of the Lotus Eaters? I love that the music really doesn't change - the anxiety is just consistent and doesn't subside EVER.

Well those were the last words that the devil said
Cause Stag put four holes in his MOTHERFUCKING HEAD!!!




I love the extended version; I don't think it would have worked on the album but live it makes the song even more badass, I just love how Nick rips into it with such bloodthirsty relish, he's a true storyteller.

I can't wait to see them live; it's always great when a band is touring an album you absolutely love and a damn fun album as well.

And I'm actually near a real city now with a chance of a show. As Janie might say (after waking up on the floor): we're gonna have a real cool time!

I'm going to the concert in Vienna on May, 25.

I saw them a couple of times before and once in a really intimate setting in our concert house, where they are usually playing classic concerts.

Can't wait for the show and for the new songs being played live.
