Nick Cave dining with them cannibals?,
This review is from: Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus (Audio CD)
Well what an impressive piece of work Nick Cave has managed yet again. This is without a doubt Nick Caves masterpiece.
I had my doubts that he could never top the immense, heartbreaking No More Shall We Part. But belive me... he has.
I was slightly worried when reading this was going to be a double album, i think maybe we all did. Maybe one or two brilliant tracks and a load of fillers, ecspecially after Nick Caves last album, the slightly dissapointing Nocturama. But Abatoir Blues/Lyre Of Orpheus is absolutly amazing. Tracks like There She Goes My Beautiful World, O'Children, Spell or my personal favourite Easy Money really show Nick Caves amazing talent. After making albums for twenty years, artists tend to slip. Nick Cave and the amazing Bad Seeds only get better. Just listen to the recent Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!! Next to Bob Dylan, Nick Cave is possibly one of the greatest songwriters of our generation.
Do not miss this album.
