Product Description

Product Description

Reissued version of the classic album from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds: the work which saw this new band rise from the ashes of Australian swamp-punks The Birthday Party . From Her To Eternity began Cave's route along the road which would lead him to become one of the world's most respected songwriters. Features the songs "Avalanche" and "Well Of Misery".

BBC Review

Now that Nick Cave is the prince of glowering, gothic rock, it's difficult to imagine a time when it looked like he'd disappear, but after the break-up of his apocalyptic, bombastic post-punk noisesmiths The Birthday Party, that's how it seemed.

Yet unbeknownst to his fans, he was already plotting a new dawn as the Party reached their finale. In fact, what's most staggering about his Bad Seeds' debut is not the throbbing thrill of it, but the fact that it ripped out of him, through the mangle of his five new Bad Seeds, and into the world within months of his last band's demise.

Over two and half decades on, it has lost none of its slap-face quality. From the opening brood of Avalanche, a Leonard Cohen cover - what a bold debuting statement to make, opening with a cover - underpinned brilliantly by Barry Adamson's insidious bass and Mick Harvey's tumultuous drums, through the brutal, keening shudder of the title track, and out to the spine-gripping and strangely seductive closer, A Box For Black Paul, the album is a stunning piece of work that declared that Cave was far from finished.

And it's not simply a statement in power, but also in control. Nothing is wasted and, at just seven songs long, it leaves you desperate for more of the guttural call of Cabin Fever, more of the twisted vision of Saint Huck, just more of the maddeningly brilliant anger, flawed ambition and deep-burning fire of it all.

In the notes of this reissue, there is a quote from Nick which says that when they went into the studio to make the album, ''no-one knew what the songs were''. Now, as then, the answer is simple: imperfect, visceral, exciting and, ultimately, classic. --Chris Long

5.0 out of 5 stars Cave�s masterful solo debut 29 Oct 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This debut solo album by Cave has grown in stature down the years. The mood is Goth, the songs are mostly folkie laments, both lyrically and melodically impressive, his voice is like dark red velvet and the whole is dark, brooding and atmospheric. With the superb backing of Bad Seeds Blixa Bargeld, Mick Harvey, Barry Adamson and Anita Lane, this album is just perfect in its blood-cuddling rawness. I love the eerie cover of Leonard Cohen's Avalanche, whilst the striking images in Cabin Fever elevates an ordinary tune into the unforgettable. Well Of Misery stands out for its interesting vocal arrangement. Cave's cover of Elvis' In The Ghetto is quite stunning. The title track is an anguished and harrowing love song with atmospheric vocal samples and industrial infusions. With these songs Cave established himself in the great tradition of artists like Cohen, Richard Thompson (in his dark moments), Tom Waits, Peter Murphy and Michael Gira, as a master of the deep, dark lament.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grave Intentions 7 July 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Review of the vinyl, still pristine after 30 years and countless spins this is the drum and bass plus the vocals of added despair as they slide into a paired down and twanging longing for solace. The quietude occuring after the cacophony of the Birthday Party diminished into self destruction and mysanthropic loathing. Just as Bowie caught Berlin angst pre punk this trappped and then bottled it in the post.

Nick found the emotional wrath of the Delta Blues, not the twiddly dum bangaplunk finger fuddling of the late sixties, but the raw rasping hollow voiced black men singing from the end of time about fifty states of despair. Cotton fields of Dixie backstoopers dragged into northern rote machine factories from the shackled, beaten and splayed populations, finally armed with a guitar and electricity. Harmonics in hand they ground out a soul poetry of utter bleakness, all couched in oblique lyrics of having the "blues"- clinical depression to you and me. Except they transcended the diagnosis to deliver some of the most caustic acebral visceral music ever wrought from the human frame.

Nick post BP tapped into this vein and reshaped it into a white angst that swam in tandem with the orginators- Son House, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Johnny Lee Hooker, Leadbelly and Screaming Jay Hawkins plus countless others.

Nick ensnared the ghostlike essence, its utter barren shake of the fist at a silent ky, the timbres and resonances of the music arise, rather than plunking fingers on too many bar chords and note notations. The crucial differnce between this and the 60's plank spankers is technique versu soul, although Robert Johnson could do both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Cave Re-Mastered 8 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have known and loved Nick Cave's work since the 80s. I have owned these recordings on the original 33 rpm, then CD and I was dubious to flog out even more of my hard earned dosh on yet another format change. But I'm glad I did. This music deserves to be heard at its very best potential. The clarity is bob on. And the bonus DVD interviews and original music videos are highly enjoyable and puts the body of work into context. And makes it just that bit more spine tingling...

So yes, go on buy it.

Viva Mr. Cave!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rollin' sea keep rollin' on ... 10 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Seeds fan, this and "Let Love In" are the two best albums. Most of the band's LPs contain a couple of tracks you'd never want to be without (most of which are collected on the Best Of album), and a lot of fairly dull stuff, but with these two it's the other way round. "Saint Huck" is a classic ballad of death and paranoia in the southern swamps - like "Tupelo" off the next album (which is pretty much a reprise of this track), it transports you to that oppressive climate. "Cabin Fever" will strike a chord with anybody who's been to sea for long periods. The title track shows Cave's sensitivity to the lonely and misunderstood among us, in this case a murderous voyeur. And so on. Musically the album also works for me - an atmosphere of controlled menace and pent-up aggression, as opposed to the unleashed aggression of the best Birthday Party tunes ("Dead Joe", "Sonny's Burning"). I actually like the spare, lo-fi "under-produced" sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars a work of genius? 7 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
I got this album after it was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm very glad I forked out the cash for it. The songs have more of an aggression to them than Cave's other albums, and is a definite must-have for fans of his previous band, The Birthday Party. The music flows perfectly, and tracks like 'In The Ghetto' and title track 'From Her To Eternity' really bring the album to life. This is the debut album from Nick Cave and his backing group The Bad Seeds, and is a must in any serious record collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well, simply my favorite 14 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
After reading other reviews on more recent Cave's albums and see that most of them are rated 5 stars and this old stuff (my 1st from Cave) got only a 3 stars, I found it quite unfair. This album remains for me the best of this band (with "do you love me", I have to admit). It is both rough and sweet. Most of songs are surrealistic, especially when you pay a little attention to the lyrics while listening outloud with a good headset. Nicolas
