I ran across a Nick Cave CD at a garage sale about 10 years ago. I still can not figure out why Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are not a household name, they are easily one of the best bands around. Later, I noticed that Mick Harvey had some solo work and I picked up One Man's Treasure. I was blown away. Mick's solo work is closer to Nick Cave than say...The Birthday Club. But, it is still quite distinctive. Mostly, I feel one voice, full of emotion, singing powerful songs. The songs are not as blackly written as Cave's songs; but like Cave's songs, you need to listen to the words. The Book of the Dead is another great CD. Right now, I still hold One Man's Treasure at a higher level. But, to be fair I have listened to it a few hundred times as compared to just a handfull of times for the new CD. If you like Nick Cave and/or Mick Harvey; pick this CD up. If you are more into the harder Grinderman or Birthday Club, maybe not. If you have no idea who any of these people are...go buy Murder Ballads by Nick Cave and prepare yourself for some light uplifting entertainment.
