Best of Nick Cave

Pen "aph84"
 
The Boatman's Call
The Boatman's Call
"Love and murder - Cave's twin obsessions. This is all the love stuff, the equal of Blood on the Tracks"
Murder Ballads
Murder Ballads
"And here's all the death and gore. Nasty little stories of killing, darkly funny."
Let Love In
Let Love In
"Some love, some violence, all good"
Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus
Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus
"Love and violence TOGETHER! Not as personal as Boatman's, not as silly as Ballads, but all brilliant."
The Good Son
The Good Son
"He's gone soft! That was the cry from Goths when this came out. But he'd just deepened, and outgrown their little belfry"
Tender Prey
Tender Prey
"Old Testament hymns in a punk noise style. Some of his best songs, but not the best versions. Look at the sunken cheeked cover - heroin was an issue at this point"
Henry's Dream
Henry's Dream
"Opposite problem to Tender Prey - too polished sounding"
No More Shall We Part
No More Shall We Part
"Boatman's Call was hard to follow. This wasn't good enough - amazingly for the super brave Cave, this is kinda cowardly and generic."
Nocturama
Nocturama
"Cave for Norah Jones fans. Still in retreat from the honesty of Boatman, he did go a bit soft and woolly."
The Firstborn Is Dead
The Firstborn Is Dead
"Early stuff. Not as good as the Birthday Party. Tupelo and Wanted Man rule though."
From Her To Eternity
From Her To Eternity
"The first solo album, still very in the shadow of the BParty."
Kicking Against The Pricks
Kicking Against The Pricks
"Trying to escape the BParty with a covers album mouthwash. It seemed to work, but this is good, if hardly essential"
