5.0 out of 5 stars Brooding, Beautiful & Moody, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Push The Sky Away (Audio CD)
Push The Sky Away is just about the most perfectly realised album that Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have ever produced. The tone is remarkably consistent throughout: ambient waves and loops of sound, the band rarely breaking sweat. Much has been made of the rise in the influence of Warren Ellis, and to see the album launch in London confirmed that he does appear to be the current bandleader. There is much more violin than guitar on here.

The songs are a world away from the type with which they made their name: Deanna, Mercy Seat, From Her To Eternity etc. The feel of the album is much more reminiscent of Jesus Of The Moon (from Dig Lazarus Dig) and paced similarly to the No More Shall We Part album.

The highlights for me are We Know Who U R, Jubilee Street, Mermaids and the title track which is incredibly beautiful, after it phases out at the end it just makes you want to repeat the whole experience again. The 9 songs hold together brilliantly as a piece and Nick Cave himself has never sounded better. There is no filler, it is a great album right up there with their best.
