Glad to see someone else repping for the title track. Here’s how I feel about it, from my blog earlier this year:

Following the horrific events of 2015 – Nick Cave’s youngest son died after falling off a cliff – the album he released with his long-time band The Bad Seeds is a harrowing affair. At least, for the most part. The most remarkable thing about Skeleton Tree – maybe the best album of his long and storied career – is that it ends on a positive note. The closing song and title track comes after 36 minutes of soul-searching and grieving and finds Nick Cave sitting by a frost-bitten window on a Sunday morning, after a tortuous night of drinking and little sleep. “Sunday morning, skeleton tree / nothing is for free / in the window, a candle / maybe you can see.” He’s audibly exhausted, exhausted from searching his grief for an answer: “I called out, I called out / right across the sea / but the echo comes back empty…” The music reflects the mood, with its gentle, embracing synths, light piano and even lighter drumming lulling the listener – and Cave – into a much-needed sleep. As the song slowly reaches its conclusion we understand that there’s no easy way out of grief. But in this moment, right now, drifting off, things might just be okay.

That's beautiful.

I re-watched "20,000 Days on Earth" last night and it's such an extraordinary film, and particularly poignant in light of the tragedy that happened the year following the release of the film.

I am never good at picking my top four songs by anyone. I can tell you that Jubilee Street at the show I saw was so electrifying that as it crescendo-ed to a rapturous intensity I very nearly spontaneously combusted in my seat.

I cannot stop thinking about that show. If I could have gotten a ticket I'd probably be on a plane to LA today. Can't wait to hear martha's impressions.

That energy at the end of Jubilee Street is just off the chain. One of my favourite concert memories for sure.

Yeah the first time I saw that live Jubilee Street was a hell of a cathartic experience.

That was an amazing show last night. It seemed heavy on early and late songs, with not much from in between.

I don't have much else to say because everyone has said it more articulately that I would, but it was incredible. Maybe I can focus later and add more.

Finally got to see him last night.
One of the best shows I've ever seen.
