Absolutely electrifying!!!! Nick Cave thankfully shows no sign of growing old gracefully. The newly renamed Bad Seeds show what they're made of here and its nothing remotely sweet. This CD just breathes aggression from the word go. If this was made by any up and coming band this would be talked about till the cows come home.

What a start we get. Nick Cave at his obscene best kicks off the album with "Get it On". This is just totally nuts! It has one of the best lyrics I think I've ever heard - (forgive the stars but this is a family site!) "He drank panther p**s and f****d the girls you're probably married to". Yes don't buy this one for the kids!!! Please! Yes the first time I played this I was rather taken aback even though I'm used to Cave's lyrics (check out "O'Malley's Bar" and "Stagger Lee" on 'Murder Ballads'). Great song though with a buzzing, primitive guitar riff running through it. Next comes the current single "No Pussy Blues", the hilarious tale of an ageing lech trying to....well you don't need me to spell it out do you! Brilliant lyrics which perfectly encapsulate what Cave is all about, he must be the best storyteller through song around.

"Electric Alice" is another good one, but then comes for me one of the highlights of the album. The title track "Grinderman" is one of the best things Cave's come out with in years. This is just about the most primaeval song I've heard in a long time. This song positively sounds like it has just crawled out of the gutter. Fantastic. "Depth Charge Ethel" is another Cave storysong, great stomping start to this, though I'm not sure about the backing vocals. Great riff though.

Haven't the time to write a long review. This has been on my headphones non stop since purchase. Incredible album. Full of Stooges-esque scuzzed up filthy sounding guitar, jaw dropping moments of crazy looped sound from Warren Ellis, real man hollering in the backing vocals, distorted organ. It's not all filthy basement goings on as there's some beautiful slow tracks in here as well. The production is full on and captures every sound to perfection. I totally love this album! The final track Love Bomb has some amazing guitar sounds on it which is a great way to end an album as it makes you want to start all over again. To top it all off they're a cool looking bunch of men as well. Hairy and sharp dressed. Can't wait for some live shows.

Well, well, well. Just when I thought the world had been taken over by wannabee, talent(less) and reality show pap, along comes a not so gentle reminder that some people not only know what they're doing but have the balls to go out and do it.

This album is loud, proud and about as subtle as a mugging. As said elsewhere, not for the faint-hearted. Take a splash of the Velvet Underground, mix with a shot of Iggy Pop, throw in some Jesus and Mary Chain then . . . . . ah but wait a minute, isn't that a bit Led Zep? Tom Waits? Neil Young???

Actually it sounds like nothing else out there at the moment and is all the better for it. For having the sheer chutzpah to make this album in this bland era, for making me grin stupidly and shout along in the car, for any number of reasons this is a truly outstanding album. I'd give it six stars if I could.

Mr Cave I salute you!

To get this out of the way: 'Grinderman' is not in the same league as recent Bad Seeds output (which frankly is reason enough not to release it under the Bad Seeds name), nor despite some lazy journalism does it replicate the cataclysmic fury of The Birthday Party, and it won't top any Album of the Year lists.

That said, if you don't enjoy this album you may as well chew your ears off, and if you can't manage that I'll come over and chew them off for you. It's a very good rock'n'roll album with some moments of greatness. Half of the songs I feel should be played in the car at ear-troubling volume and dubious speed, the other half are strangely swampy blues numbers suitable for the very early hours.

Fizzing with fun and energy. Songs clock in at a friendly three and a half minutes average (why can't more bands learn this lesson? Don't get me started...) and Mr Cave's rasp is in fine fettle throughout. It's an album of highlights; you'll have your own favourites after just two listens. Suffice to say it begins and ends with hip-grinding face-punchers, just like great rock albums used to do. 'Love Bomb' does pretty much what it says on the tin; lasciviously lovely with a sado-masochistic guitar tortured throughout.

I admit to being a long-term Nick Cave fan, in the Birthday Party, with the Bad Seeds, as an author and so on through his amazing career. So I was inclined to like this, not least as celebration of the unlikely fact that Nick is still healthy and going strong.

I was delighted (and I confess a little surprised) to discover that this album is really, really good. The loud, faster songs are never pushed too far, never shouting, always in controll. The quieter, slower songs are the most fantastic laid-back bluesy rock soud you can imagine. There is something of the early Bad Seed days about this - a bit of Saint Huck -but clearly the other band members have more control and haul Cave back from the edge to a more conventional song structure.

Sounds very good very loud.
