5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired double album, 28 July 2005
This review is from: Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus (Audio CD)
I've got into Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds only this year, this being my first album that I purchased. Nick Cave is a truly inspired lyric writer and you can tell he's not holding back when on only the third track into a double album he reveals that 'there is a war coming, coming from above'. Nick and The Seeds lyrics and music is grand, musical, lush, bombarding, huge and simply gorgeous. All tracks are approached with such enthusiasm and zeal. There are kinds of influences from Nick Caves early days in music to Christianity. Infact Nicks chosen faith is one that pops up alot, but never, ever, in a preachy form, but more in a medieval 'God is a bit ticked off' way, and seemily tounge-in-cheek.
I wouldn't want to point out certain songs as each one is its own story and has its own message. All I can say is that this music is true, bombastic, driving, glorious and confident. A must buy, and a real contender for best modern double album!
