Softening the turf with my tears...,
This review is from: From Her To Eternity (Audio CD)
This is definately one of Caves best albums. It is a tense, menacing listen and sets a very dark atmosophere. Cabin Fever is fantasticly haunting, as well as suprisingly catchy, while Well Of Misery is a precursor to some of Caves later work, such as The Hammer Song. This album is similar to the later Birthday Party songs, such as Mutiny In Heaven and Pleasure Avalanche, the heroin obviously effecting the music.
On top of this fantastic album you also get two of the B-sides from the Tupelo single on the CD version, In The Ghetto, a cover of the Elvis ballard (in my opinion superior to the orignal) and The Moon Is In The Gutter, an excellent song which deserved to be on an album proper, rather than relegated to a single.
So if you're a fan of The Birthday Party or pre 90's Bad Seeds you'll love this album!
