5.0 out of 5 stars The Birthday Party's best material, 21 Jun 2007
This review is from: Mutiny/The Bad Seed E.P. (Audio CD)
Oringially released as two Separate EP's which would prove to be the last material recorded by this band. This CD features both EP's plus extra tracks including the excellent Six Strings That Drew Blood

This is pure twisted genius featuring Nick Cave at his most extreme lyrically and complimented by Roland S Howards equally and gloriously deranged guitar playing. Jukyard was excellent these two EP's are even better in my opinion featuring the most polished and fully realised Birthday Party material.

Forget about the repetative power chords and death grunts of extreme metal or hardcore this is really extreme and much more interesting.

I would definatly recomend this for people who alreaby like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeeds, singer song writters or if you like extreme guitar based music and are looking to listen to somthing other than power chords and generic grunts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, humorous, violent madness, 10 April 2001
This review is from: Mutiny/The Bad Seed E.P. (Audio CD)
The awesome sound of a band falling apart. This CD contains the final recordings by The Birthday Party: "The Bad Seed" EP and the "Mutiny" sessions. This ranks among the most extreme, violent recordings you will ever have the pleasure to hear as Nick Cave narrates sinister Deep South stories over heavy swamp blues. Even the presence of slow numbers like "Wildworld" and "Jennifer's Veil" do not halt the relentless sense of menace on this album. A few weaker songs are to be found in the "Mutiny" sessions, but the ferocious "Swampland" is a welcome blast of mania as the tale of a hunted murderer is vividly told. The closing song "Mutiny in Heaven" is a true classic of dark humour and ugliness. Recorded without influential guitarist Rowland S. Howard (Blixa Bargeld from Einsturzende Neubauten filled the void), Cave's vocal delivery and lyrics are at their best here as he tells a life story of squalor, religion and heroin addiction that culminates in his wish to get out of the dystopian "Heaven" he finds himself in. This song along with other tracks like "Sonny's Burning" and "Fears of a Gun" make this CD one of the most powerful, intense and uncomfortable you are ever likely to experience.
