Product Description

BBC Review

Hollowed out by the catharsis of 1997’s The Boatman’s Call, Nick Cave rested his pen for a while. Just over four years would pass before another Bad Seeds long-player saw the light of day. The wait was worth it. No More Shall We Part hasn’t the acute heartache of its immediate predecessor, the fire of Tender Prey, or the drama of Murder Ballads; but it is possibly the band’s most beautiful record, its enveloping melancholy immediately touching. Warren Ellis’ violin work is more pronounced than in the past, allowed to slow-dance above the muted guitars and percussion, and Cave’s plaintive piano strokes lend the set a real tenderness.

Cave’s storytelling is realised with less intimacy here – which isn’t to say that numbers like Hallelujah ("The tears are welling in my eyes again… I need 20 big buckets to catch them in") and Sweetheart Come aren’t capable of squeezing the heart, but it’s something of a relief to hear Cave allow himself breathing space from his own loves and losses. The Boatman’s Call can convey claustrophobia, its cast of real-life characters casting long shadows over the listening experience; here, a melodic lightness and slightly detached vocal performances – still from the spotlight, but the stage has stretched that bit wider – ensure that tears are kept in check. Emotions are controlled – where once our protagonist would fly into a rage, here his musings are restrained, spirituality and soul-searching in place of boiled blood and fiery eyes. At times Cave is the spit of Leonard Cohen, removed yet able to punch straight to the core of the subject at hand.

There’s always the threat, though, that during its softer moments this album will slide into schmaltz. That it never does is testament to the skill of its performers – the clatter of The Sorrowful Wife’s second half, all chugging guitars and clangourous drums, drag it from introspection into boisterous bombast, as Mick Harvey and Blixa Bargeld – neither a Bad Seed today – go at their weapons of choice like men possessed. Similarly, Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow shifts its weight with remarkable ease, from background blues to rock’n’roll discordance. We Came Along This Road is probably the most striking of the slower cuts, mournful piano carving a path for Anna and Kate McGarrigle to follow, their backing vocals sublime.

In another artist’s canon, No More Shall We Part would be an incredible achievement. In The Bad Seeds’, though, it’s merely one very fine album amongst several.

Review

"The golden era of Australia's gothic gang - Each comes as a two-disc set, the remastered album and a DVD with a 5.1 version, B-sides and videos, plus a talking-heads account of each album from interested parties. These albums show Cave in a transitional period personally and creatively, stretching the claustrophobic boundaries of his earlier work - the fly - blown American Gothic, the lurid visions of sex and death - in the search for wisdom." -- Q, June 2011 - ****

6/10
-- Classic Rock, June 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars All Beauty Must Die 31 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
There’s none of the brash explosive violence of early Cave here, this is as polished as it gets... not that that is a criticism you understand. No, this is an epic in every sense of the word.
Here, Cave draws on the principal preoccupations that he is most synonymous with - love, death, drugs, madness, murder and religion being amongst the more obvious - and creates a work of intense, cathartic beauty. Even the flowers on the cover give us a suggestion of the way ahead, giving us a new Nick no longer Kicking Against the Pricks but instead, almost wilting in the sense of autumnal melancholy that marks out many of these songs.
Here it is the mournful string arrangements of Warren Ellis and Mick Harvey that really set the scene for Nick’s most touchingly operatic work... an album that speaks in bursts of poetic beauty whilst unfolding with the kind of surreal detachment usually reserved for dreamscapes and early Van Morrison. I suppose that’s the fairest summation. If the earlier Boatman’s Call was Nick’s Blood on the Tracks then surely this is his Astral Weeks... a collection of intensely beautiful songs that suffocate the listener with their languid pace and lyrical grace.
There’s simply no stand out here. As with the majority of Nick’s output, the record unfolds naturally... each songs is as important as the one that preceded it, building up to a moody crescendo around track seven, which is then sustained till the very last. Here Nick croons along in true balladeer mode, whilst the ever-excellent Bad Seeds create haunting landscapes of music that complement Cave’s blend of gospel poetry perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boatman's Dream (and then some...) 19 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
I feel I've now listened to this album enough since it's release to be able to adequately review it - as akin to all Nick Cave albums it takes a while to firmly embed itself under ones skin and even longer to claw it's way up the cerebral cortex.
The album begins with the quietly strummed guitar and lilting piano of the first few bars of "As I sat sadly by her side", the first single, which would seem to indicate that this album is going to become "The Boatman's Call Part II". However, as we move on it becomes apparent that this is not entirely the case.
The third track "Hallelujah" exhibits a lush musical backdrop far less spartan than anything found on the previous album and is one of the highlights of this one. From this track in, the songs are more musically complex and often louder than the previous work. It's not however until we reach "Oh my Lord" that the Bad Seeds really let rip. This song appears to be in part Cave's response to his detractors who claim he's gone a bit "soft" of late, the loud orchestration easily matching the anger of any of the pseudo-punk on "Henry's Dream" with a suitably vitriolic lyric.
Nick Cave has always been able to turn lyrical cartwheels and this album is no exception. It's the oh-so-easy mix of the sublime, mundane, ridiculous, dramatic and tragic imagery that's so moving - but I'll refrain from quoting any because I suspect that out of context it'll all seem a bit silly.
But if you fancy an album of brown cows, white kittens, lady mayors, absent nurses, buried hatchets, snarling pianos, love letters, white churches, plastic antlers, garden gates and smoking guns - go buy this one. You won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars The return of the master. 8 April 2006
By dynamitekid156 VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In 2001, it seemed like time was up for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. After the end of his relationship with PJ Harvey, and his break-up album, the fractured yet beautiful Boatman's Call, a 'Best of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' emerged in 1999. Usually the seal on one's career, to most it signified the end of the Seeds as we knew them.
Two years on, No More Shall We Part emerged. Not only did it show Nick Cave's return after four years of relative silence, it also showed him slowly returning to the louder sound of his earlier works, which would continue over his next two studio albums. Weighing in at 68 minutes, every song here is a long one; and every song here is worth it.
The quieter ballads here are among Nick Cave's greatest. The eight-minute epic that is 'Hallelujah' is a hallucinatory, hymnal, tearful journey that would've made Bob Dylan proud as it swells to its majestic ending. 'God Is In The House' is a whispery, vaguely hilarious conflab that remains in his solo sets to this day, and 'Love Letter' is arguably his sweetest song to date.
The real attraction here, though, is the louder moments, signifying the slow return to the Nick Cave of old. 'Oh My Lord,' arguably the best song here, is like 'Hallelujah's evil twin, a slong, building epic characterised by Warren Ellis' scratchy violin. 'The Sorrowful Wife,' meanwhile, blindsides you when it explodes into a thunderous racket a few minutes in.
Overall, eleven albums it, it certainly was a fine showing. Yet again, Nick Cave pulled out a winner against all odds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, satisfying, awe-inspiring 29 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Nick and the Seeds on Jools Holland, where their track "God is in the House" stood out for me. I played it over and over again, and the music and intruiging lyrics just kept getting better and more meaningful on each listen. On the strength of that one song, I decided to get the No More Shall We Part album, and it's been on my CD player constantly since I got it. It's the feel of the music and the lyrical content that makes this album, and indeed other Cave albums. After listening to 3 tracks on the album, namely "God is in the House", the title track "And No More Shall We Part" and "Hallelujah", it became apparent to me that this guy was a genius. The haunting harmonies send shivers down my spine, and the lyrics make me laugh and (almost) cry at the same time.
I'm a musician myself, and to be able to listen to something as different and special as this album is so refreshing. I intend to purchase the whole of the Nick Cave back catalogue.
But be warned, this isn't for the light-hearted. Anyone who thinks Cliff Richard or Steps are talented, maybe you should just stay clear. Do not insult Mr. Cave with your comments of "it's too morbid and sorrowful and boring". If you think that, then you've missed the whole point of the album. Look deeper, and you'll find something quite beautiful.
Simply amazing.
