Product Description

Product Description

Remastered CD/DVD, Album in 5.1 surround sound, short film, b-sides, extended sleeve notes. Recorded during 1986 at studios in both London and Berlin. Immense stuff!

Amazon.co.uk

Fourth album from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, and one which saw them reinforcing their reputation as one of the world's most intriguing bands: this is a dark, caustic collection of bluesy stories and laments. Features the songs "The Carny", "Scum" and "Stranger Than Kindness".

I'm surprised to see the other reviewer damn this album with faint praise. For me it remains the definitive Bad Seeds album - sparse, atmospheric and haunting. Interestingly Cave himself describes it as the only one he's made that he's completely satisfied with! The edgy unnerving scratch of Jack's Shadow recalls the heady days of The Birthday Party, the lush beauty of Sad Waters brings to mind Scott Walker and as for The Carny.... I have to agree that the re-ordering of the tracks is just bizarre - the original format on the double 12 inch pack makes a lot more sense! Anyway, you need this in your collection! Nuff said!

The one thing that often lacked in some Cave’s earlier work was consistency, not in terms of song quality. Even the weakest track is delivered with more passion and style than most of his peers. Its rather the way the album gels together.
“Your Funeral My trial” sounds like sections from three different albums, combining Blues, ballads and glorious noise. Still this is a minor complaint about a fine collection of songs.
The album starts with the title track. Built around a piano and organ accompaniment, it sounds like a lullaby with teeth. Stranger to kindness follows, the only song recorded by the Bad seeds (cover versions excluded) were Cave has neither wrote the lyrics or music. This task is handled by Anita Lane and Blixa Bargeld respectively. It’s a somewhat half-hearted effort
Things pick up for Jacks Shadow, which has some great fractured guitar playing by Bargeld and backing vocals from the Bad Seeds. Its too melodic to be sinister

Then comes the album’s centrepiece a monster of a track “the Carny” an epic track even more cinematic than “red right hand.” Here Cave’s storytelling abilities come to the fore with the tale of a Carny who vanishes from a circus. It’s a jaw dropping song.

The spare atmospheric “She fell away” follows. Along with the Carny it’s the album’s highlight,
Showing how far Cave has come as a songwriter, now able to write disturbing numbers that
don’t spill into a chaotic wall of noise.
“Hard on for love” and “Long time man” would have fitted comfortably on First Born is dead.
Between the two tracks is “Sad waters” a tender love ballad without any death or violence.

Format: Audio CD
Originally published on two 12" singles in a double gatefold sleeve the track listing in this CD format has been re-ordered which I can never understand – it just confuses those of us who originally bought the vinyl format and I assume is contrary to what was originally intended.
Enough useless bickering about pedantic points concerning formatting, this is an eerie album even by Nick Cave standards that I consider to be truly powerful not only in the strength of Cave's lyrics buy also in the musical arrangements. Although there is a common theme to the music there is strength in diversity from the sorrowful ballad of 'Sad Waters' to the quite extraordinary 'The Carny' a spoken-word to the accompaniment of hypnotic carnival music sounds.
To a certain extent this is a precursor to later Cave work, in particular Murder Ballads as a the lyrics of the songs deal with such delights as a man doing away with his own shadow, and thus destroying his own soul (Jack's Shadow), stalkers (Hard on For love) and relationship breakdowns (She Fell Away).
All in all this is not, objectively, one of Cave's best albums. Neither is it the most accessible so if you are new to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds this is not your starting point - try Henry's Dream, Let Love In, and Murder Ballads, but is a great favourite of mine and compares much more favourably to his album 'Kicking against the Pricks' an album altogether in a completely different style being a series of cover versions that was published originally only two months earlier.
