Dig, Lazarus Dig!! - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Anybody else really f%&ing excited about this? I have to say I'm really jealous - the rest of the world is getting this on March 4. April 8 in the U.S. The single is pretty awesome, it's just got a great swagger. And after Abbatoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus and Grinderman, I have really high expectations for the album. Early indications suggest I won't be disappointed.

Yay! Someone here is just as excited about this as I am!

I can't wait to get my hands on a copy ... I STILL haven't heard the new single as yet (shame!) but my sis assures me that it is very, very good

I LOVED the Grinderman CD .. and being able to see them in concert late last year was a huge highlight for me. Can't wait to see the Bad Seeds once again .. just awesome

Enjoy!

I can't help but share the goodness. It's absolutely great, and such a departure from Abbatoir/Lyre.

I got the album yesterday and played it once so far; I think it needs more listens to sink in. I confess I'm not the biggest fan of Nick's Grinderman project, which also influences the new album a lot. I like it, and the band obviously have tons of fun with this new sound, but I can't help thinking that it's somewhat throwaway coming after the ambition and scope of "Abbatoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus".

But there's absolutely no doubt that *no one* out there writes lyrics like Nick Cave,

I ordered it, I'm excited. I'm also going to the concert in May.

I was right about the album needing more spins, I absolutely love it now, There's a couple of weaker tracks near the end but overall it's a cracking effort. I can't wait to hear the new stuff live!

Okay, so having had the album for a few weeks now, I'd put it right up there as one of my favorite Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds albums. I definitely think it's the most consistent release they've had, possibly ever. As much as I love (and still prefer) Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus, there are spots where I get a little bored. Definitely not the case here. While some tracks do weigh the album down during the second half, it's got some killers.

My faves:
1. Today's Lesson
2. More News From Nowhere
3. We Call Upon the Author
4. Dig, Lazarus Dig!!
5. Night of the Lotus Eaters

Yeah, I can't wait to pick this up. I've been tempted to torrent it, but I'm going to hold steady on this one...just a little while longer.

I bought it on ebay from Australia for 12 US dollars.
So I've had it since the second week of March.

Also, I'm working a 3-4 disc comprehensive Nick Cave mix. The only problem is that I can't really decide what approach to take.

1) 3 discs, no Grinderman, no Birthday Party, Nick solo mixed in. I have tracklists prepared for this. Chronologically grouped discs, but arranged for listening pleasure within groupings.
2) 4 discs, Grinderman, Birthday Party, Nick solo mixed in. Again, chronologically grouped discs, but arranged for listening pleasure within groupings.
3) 4 discs - 3 for Nick and the Bad Seeds, chronologically-but-sequenced like the other two. Fourth disc devoted to Birthday Party, Grinderman, and solo.
