Format: Audio CD
Nick Cave (The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds & Grinderman) has constantly strayed outside the accepted boundaries of what a rock singer is, or should be capable of - usually this would induce mistrust and disdain but Cave's appearing lack of compromise, yet willingness to understand the mediums in which he has chosen to create, has instead drawn critical acclaim from both the literary and film world.

The Road, co-composed by Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three, The Bad Seeds & Grinderman) is Cave's (I think) fifth soundtrack and third collaboration with Ellis, is haunting, bleak, elegaic and beautiful. Strongly rooted in classicism and based predominantly around piano and strings, the arrangements of which conjures up images of music played within the home, tenative, childlike and passed down, is shockingly brutalised with bursts of violent dissonance and menacing electronica. Only on `The Bath' do we hear the human voice, an eerie, almost lunar drone offering sparse comfort. The score is undoubtedly uneasy and demands repeated listens before revealing it's true power. One of the best contemporary scores I've heard in a long while.

I have never heard Nick Cave's music before, but I'm seriously tempted to buy other CDs now. I thought the music, which is the soundtrack for the film The Road, was absolutely wonderful, both as a soundtrack, and also to listen to in its own right. It's haunting, tuneful, atmospheric and just beautiful.

Dark and moody...just how I like it. Nothing fast on here, just relaxing, thought provoking stuff. It does seem to be over a little quick, as the tracks are very short unfortunately. I still play it over and over though!

There are few artists that I would trust enough to buy the soundtrack before seeing the accompanying film, but I make an exception with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. Quality is always guaranteed.

The soundtrack to the Road is at times a challenging affair and for that reason it needs to be given time to appreciate its beauty.

It is a mournful and at time strikingly beautiful soundtrack which conjures up apocalyptic images of loss and decay. There are however also abrasive and exciting pieces in contrast.

I like music that challenges the listener and this album falls in to that bracket. It is not my favourite Cave/Ellis soundtrack, but it is nevertheless a clever composition.

As for presentation, this comes in a mini gatefold sleeve with the disc housed in a slipcase - all very neat and tidy.
