5.0 out of 5 stars "The reading is from..." Cave's near perfect creation, 19 Nov. 2003
This review is from: The Boatman's Call [VINYL] (Vinyl)
"I wish that I was made of stone so that I would not have to see beauty impossible to define, a beauty impossible to believe, a beauty inpossible to endure..." (from "Brompton Oratory")
My GOD do I love this record. Over-some-edge beautiful. Religious skepticism meets 20th century romanticism driven by the joy of love, tempered by this never ending well of human pain and loss. This music repeatedly touches that spot that hurts that only music or orgasm can get at. Like Leonard Cohen can so often do for me, the music of Boatman soothes like May (the month), a calm wind, a glass of iced ginger tea, a lover's deep and probing kiss, the perfect massage. A record too good for words, especially these. (this review is of the vinyl--the sound stage, tone, clarity, and intimate detail are just perfect, gorgeous)

I was going to review this hauntingly beautiful album myself, but there's no way I could do it better justice than this. Absolutely phenomenal, and deeply touching. This album is what music exists for.
