Product Description

Product Description

Following the break up of Nick Cave's former group The Birthday Party, Cave and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey put together a new band featuring Einsturzende Neubauten guitarist Blixa Bargeld, additional guitarist Hugo Race, and ex-Magazine bass player Barry Adamson. The band entered the studio on September 20th 1983, and after some sessions, emerged as Nick Cave & The Cavemen, playing their first gig in Melbourne on New Year's Eve 1983. The name was short-lived, and was soon amended to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, in reference to the final Birthday Party release, 'The Bad Seed' EP. Most of 'From Her To Eternity'  was recorded in London, with sessions split between The Garden studio in Shoreditch, and Trident, in Soho. Cave later said, "Well, I guess we weren't kicking people in the teeth anymore. I mean, it just became different. I wanted it to be more lyrically orientated and getting Blixa Bargeld in the group made an incredible difference. He's a completely kind of atmospheric guitarist and incredibly economical and it gave me room to breathe". The album, produced by Mick Harvey and Flood, was released on 18th June 1984 on Mute Records, Cave's label for more than the next 25 years. It received great reviews upon its release and is recognised as one of the most timeless albums of the '80s.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 Oct. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This debut solo album by Cave has grown in stature down the years. The mood is Goth, the songs are mostly folkie laments, both lyrically and melodically impressive, his voice is like dark red velvet and the whole is dark, brooding and atmospheric. With the superb backing of Bad Seeds Blixa Bargeld, Mick Harvey, Barry Adamson and Anita Lane, this album is just perfect in its blood-cuddling rawness. I love the eerie cover of Leonard Cohen's Avalanche, whilst the striking images in Cabin Fever elevates an ordinary tune into the unforgettable. Well Of Misery stands out for its interesting vocal arrangement. Cave's cover of Elvis' In The Ghetto is quite stunning. The title track is an anguished and harrowing love song with atmospheric vocal samples and industrial infusions. With these songs Cave established himself in the great tradition of artists like Cohen, Richard Thompson (in his dark moments), Tom Waits, Peter Murphy and Michael Gira, as a master of the deep, dark lament.

As a long time Seeds fan, this and "Let Love In" are the two best albums. Most of the band's LPs contain a couple of tracks you'd never want to be without (most of which are collected on the Best Of album), and a lot of fairly dull stuff, but with these two it's the other way round. "Saint Huck" is a classic ballad of death and paranoia in the southern swamps - like "Tupelo" off the next album (which is pretty much a reprise of this track), it transports you to that oppressive climate. "Cabin Fever" will strike a chord with anybody who's been to sea for long periods. The title track shows Cave's sensitivity to the lonely and misunderstood among us, in this case a murderous voyeur. And so on. Musically the album also works for me - an atmosphere of controlled menace and pent-up aggression, as opposed to the unleashed aggression of the best Birthday Party tunes ("Dead Joe", "Sonny's Burning"). I actually like the spare, lo-fi "under-produced" sound.

I have known and loved Nick Cave's work since the 80s. I have owned these recordings on the original 33 rpm, then CD and I was dubious to flog out even more of my hard earned dosh on yet another format change. But I'm glad I did. This music deserves to be heard at its very best potential. The clarity is bob on. And the bonus DVD interviews and original music videos are highly enjoyable and puts the body of work into context. And makes it just that bit more spine tingling...

So yes, go on buy it.

Viva Mr. Cave!

After reading other reviews on more recent Cave's albums and see that most of them are rated 5 stars and this old stuff (my 1st from Cave) got only a 3 stars, I found it quite unfair. This album remains for me the best of this band (with "do you love me", I have to admit). It is both rough and sweet. Most of songs are surrealistic, especially when you pay a little attention to the lyrics while listening outloud with a good headset. Nicolas

I got this album after it was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm very glad I forked out the cash for it. The songs have more of an aggression to them than Cave's other albums, and is a definite must-have for fans of his previous band, The Birthday Party. The music flows perfectly, and tracks like 'In The Ghetto' and title track 'From Her To Eternity' really bring the album to life. This is the debut album from Nick Cave and his backing group The Bad Seeds, and is a must in any serious record collection.

This is definately one of Caves best albums. It is a tense, menacing listen and sets a very dark atmosophere. Cabin Fever is fantasticly haunting, as well as suprisingly catchy, while Well Of Misery is a precursor to some of Caves later work, such as The Hammer Song. This album is similar to the later Birthday Party songs, such as Mutiny In Heaven and Pleasure Avalanche, the heroin obviously effecting the music.
On top of this fantastic album you also get two of the B-sides from the Tupelo single on the CD version, In The Ghetto, a cover of the Elvis ballard (in my opinion superior to the orignal) and The Moon Is In The Gutter, an excellent song which deserved to be on an album proper, rather than relegated to a single.
So if you're a fan of The Birthday Party or pre 90's Bad Seeds you'll love this album!

When this album was produced Nick Cave was something of a Pete Doherty style enigma, talented but beyond the boundaries and seemingly unlikely to last too much longer. Set against that it is perhaps possible to attempt a guess at where this album comes from, the band seem like they are trying to beat (or maybe bludgeon) the form into something that fitted with their particular, peculiar creativity - the result sounds like artists with writers block who are using semtex, LSD and jack hammers to address the problem - not, you are maybe thinking, the makings of a great work of art but then I'm not so sure.

The thing is, this album is like nothing you have ever heard before, so you can't just dismiss it. It is difficult to either criticise it or even to compare it to anything else, it is astonishing, uncompromising and shocking. Do I like it? Well yes, very much, but I don't really know exactly why, and when I first listened to it I hated it, without really knowing why that was either. I guess I like this in the same way that a rabbit likes headlights, it is menacing but mesmerising and deep.

In terms of the individual tracks it is possible to pick out highlights (Cabin Fever, St Huck, From her to Eternity) but really if the album works it is as a single, heavyweight statement of disenchantment with love, creativity, life and god knows what else - if I am honest I really don't understand what Cave and the Bad Seeds are trying to say or do here, maybe they didn't either.

Anyhow if you decide you like (or even adore) this album I wouldn't go on and recommend it to your friends, they will mostly think you have gone balmy if you do, and any that don't will probably have themselves sectioned fairly soon afterwards.

So why give it 5 stars? How about because its there?
