5.0 out of 5 stars Mick Harvey - Solo Album 5 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Wow, what an album. Being a big fan of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds I had to get the album as soon as it came out here in Ireland....and it's brilliant! Mick mostly covers original songs but makes them his own. So different compared to the Bad Seeds but their influence on this album is undeniable. At the same time Mick Harvey's unique style is absolutely haunting and beautiful. Overall, a fantastic album. Mick did what Johnny Cash did to some wonderful Indie rock songs during his last albums on American Recordings........making the songs his own.
My favourite songs on the album:
- Come On Spring
- First St. Blues
- Come Into My Sleep
- Hank Williams Said It Best
- Will You Surrender?
- The River
Get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad seed grows 9 Nov 2005
By alexander laurence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mick Harvey has always been an important member of the bands The Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds. Many of his songs with the Birthday Party were some of the best. He is the only original member of The Bad Seeds along with Nick Cave. Harvey was also in the band Crime & City Solution. He worked on movie soundtracks and kept busy. Over 25 years of music, it wouldn't surprise me if Mick Harvey has contributed to over fifty albums. His previous solo albums were English versions of the work of Serge Gainsbough. This is the first record of original and covers songs. Harvey calls it "very personal." He ends up putting his personal touch on songs by The Gun Club, Tim Buckley, Lee Hazelwood, Johnny Cash, and others. It is a pretty interesting cool record. Mick Harvey plans on touring with this album with a real band. That should be interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars grows on the listener 7 Jan 2006
By Jeremy M. Milstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mick Harvey's latest release takes a turn or two to get used to. The overall mood is in step with many Bad Seeds releases yet Harvey is not a Nick Cave clone. The biggest misstep on the album is his cover of Cave's "Come Into My Sleep". Still, there are 4 or 5 great tracks on here, highlighted by "Louise", Tim Buckley's "The River", Robbie Fulks' "Bethelridge" and Harvey's own beautiful composition, "Will You Surrender?"

In addition, google to find the music video for "Hank Williams Said it Best." Inspired video especially compared to the usual Bad Seeds' videos. Great songs, lousy videos.

Overall, worth owning for any Bad Seeds fan but don't expect a Nick Cave release. Harvey is his own artist and hopefully, he releases a full-length CD soon of his own stuff as "Will You Surrender?" is terrific.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Seed Sprouts 18 April 2006
By Kurt Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Had I not been a Nick Cave fan, I might never have heard of Mick Harvey. They just don't play songs like these on the radio and that's a pity.

One Man's Treasure is apparently Harvey's third solo effort in ten years and his treatment of the songs here show just how much he has grown. You might say that this Bad Seed has finally sprouted. Most songs on this CD were written by others, but Harvey displays great talent with a couple of his own compositions as well.

I like most of the CD with the exception of the obnoxious Come On Spring. My favorites are: First St. Blues, a snivel-in-your-drink song that shouts writer Lee Hazlewood's name; the dark and romantic Louise; the somber Harvey composition Man Without A Home; Planetarium, with its building musical tension and dramatic instrumental interlude; the powerful Hank Williams Said It Best; and the trance-inducing Mother of Earth.

If you are looking for a slavish imitation of Harvey's work with Nick Cave on One Man's Treasure, then you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for something new in alternative rock, then you should consider Mick Harvey and this CD. About the only connection here to the Bad Seeds is his cover of one Cave song, and the fact that musically, Harvey tends to be on the dark side.

Other than that, he shows he's his own man when he needs to be. Check One Man's Treasure out, you should not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mick Harvey the True Talent behind Nick Caves Bands 21 Feb 2012
By josh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album shows that there is nothing Mick can do wrong when it comes to playing every instrument and shuns the stupid rock star fame. He has hid behind the lesser good vocals of Nick Cave since they were teens. He is a one man band. And his catalog proves there is nothing he can not do very well. Also a very humble and kind Bad Seed to all his fans. without Harvey there would have never been a Nick Cave, Crime and City Solution, Birthday Party. He is Austrailias National Treasure of musical genius.
