5.0 out of 5 stars All Beauty Must Die
There’s none of the brash explosive violence of early Cave here, this is as polished as it gets... not that that is a criticism you understand. No, this is an epic in every sense of the word.
Here, Cave draws on the principal preoccupations that he is most synonymous with - love, death, drugs, madness, murder and religion being amongst the more obvious - and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nick Cave tried too hard
Surfing on the success of his previous excellent album The Boatman's Call, Nick Cave here tries to re-create the mood and ambience that spoke so fluently, effortlessly but nonetheless deeply on the aforementioned album. However he tried too hard to look for something that ultimately one has to wait for (true inspiration, the exceptional moment). As a result of this, No...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Staggering, 11 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: No More Shall We Part (Audio CD)
I really think this could be the most vital record of the past decade. It's staggeringly good. Lyrical genius, emotionally full on, with the soft (Love Letter) and the hard (Oh My Lord) pulled off with equal brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars god bless his ever loving heart, 3 April 2001
By A Customer
first of all, i gotta say that i love to death every cd that nick has made so no matter what i knew i was gonna love this one. now, we're in front of a pretty good cd, maybe a little different from the rest, i think nick has tryed to keep up with the times, a little more mature, more instruments, more backing vocals but still, he has lost some voice though the lyrics are awesome, don't know what else to say, if you like cave,well this is cave¡¡¡ but things change. i personally still think that ``the boatman's call'' is his best work until now. enjoy guys, you're buying a nick cave cd¡¡

5.0 out of 5 stars Limited Edition of the new Nick Cavecd, 2 April 2001
By A Customer
I just bought the new Cd of Nick Cav e and the bad seeds. I specially like the first two songs As I sat sadly by her side and No more shall we part. Also the limited edition has a very nice Vidio to see at your Computer or Mac. It shows the whole Band in the studio recording the new disc. Nick has a big Smile someone very close to him is bored to see the same song played over and over again while we ( the fans) would give a whole lot to be with them in the studio. So be sure to buy the Limited edition. Sandra

3.0 out of 5 stars Nick Cave tried too hard, 8 April 2001
Surfing on the success of his previous excellent album The Boatman's Call, Nick Cave here tries to re-create the mood and ambience that spoke so fluently, effortlessly but nonetheless deeply on the aforementioned album. However he tried too hard to look for something that ultimately one has to wait for (true inspiration, the exceptional moment). As a result of this, No More Shall We Part ended up more as a collection of a number of excellent songs (eg. As I Sat Sadly By Her Side), some mediocre ones (eg. Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow) and a ridiculous one (Love Letter). Musically, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are as good as ever. My only regret is that they have put far too much emphasis on melancholy at the expense of the wicked aggressiveness that so beautifully characterises some songs in the previous albums. Despite all this, it is a good album and I recommend it, not the least because I suspect it is an interesting interlude to great things yet to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic..., 3 April 2001
By A Customer
Well, relentless is a word I would instantly associate with Mr Cave. He just doesn't let up. Continuing his themes of love, hate, religion, et al, No More Shall We Part, though less heavy, is as intense as anything the man has recorded before.
A must buy for all Cave fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest albums of all time, 29 Jun. 2001
By 
arianne (Chippenham, Wiltshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
I wish that i could give this ten stars. This album is perfect. It is an incredible journey through the landscapes of the human heart. The songs are achingly beautiful and i suggest listening to it via headphones as that way you can capture all the many different layers to it. I could listen to it eternally and never tire of it. An incredible work of art!

Unbelivable! this is one of the greatest albums of all time.
Can it be that every note is sheer magic?Kittens do not match this albums beauty!You will love it!Only perhaps the Boatmans call could come close, butUnbelievably it is not in the same league.Believe me this is the Best of Cave so far!It is a far greater than Cave's often spectacular early work!Genius!Definatley a must buy album!
