5.0 out of 5 stars HANDS UP WHO WANTS TO DIE?, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutiny/Bad Seed (Audio CD)
I had always cared for Mutiny far more than Junkyard, each song was darker, meaner and more psychopathic than the next. The whole bloodied mess ends with Deep in the Woods which has got to be one of Cave's darker moments. Throw in the Birthday Party's final EP - Mutiny and the transition to the (slightly) more refined and knowing Bad Seeds is achieved.

Both EPs are jagged and confrontational - just look at the sleeve art and you'll get the picture. Masterpieces both that demand to be loved unconditionally like incarcerated kin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bye-bye Birthday Party, hello Bad Seeds, 7 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Mutiny/Bad Seed (Audio CD)
This combined release of The Birthday Party's final two EPs from 1982 and 1983 captures the band in transition. With Blixa Bargeld of Einsturzende Neubauten guesting on guitar and songs like Jennifer's Veil and Six Strings That Drew Blood, there is an anticipation of the sound and flavour of Nick Cave's subsequent solo project, The Bad Seeds. On the other hand, ferocious opener Sonny's Burning and Pleasure Avalanche are classically insane Birthday Party material. With the majority of songs being co-written with Mick Harvey, Cave cements the partnership that has persisted to this day in The Bad Seeds. Whilst perhaps not quite as essential as the Prayers on Fire and Junk Yard albums, Mutiny/The Bad Seed is definitely a worthy purchase for Nick Cave fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their last and best!, 27 Dec 2000
This review is from: Mutiny/Bad Seed (Audio CD)
Truly great art/punk album, their darkest and best work. Some of the humour of the earlier recordings is missing, although no album whose first song starts with the line: "HANDS UP! who wants to die". could be called humourless. it would be worth five stars except for some weaker songs like six strings that drew blood and pleasure avalanche but both these were not on the orginal LPs so it's not the birthday partys fault. A great album violent, rocking and tottaly amoral just the way i like em!
