5.0 out of 5 stars
a superb collection of songs, 22 Oct. 2004
This is an excellent introduction to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Like the Amazon reviewer said, it doesn't have any B-sides or rare live tracks or similar crap that most companies place on other best of albums to make the hardcore fans buy it, even though they already own most of the tracks; this TRULY is the best of Nick Cave, without any BS. Most people know him as the guy who did a duet with Kylie Minogue in the 90s - and that was a great song indeed, but he has done so much more than just that: listen to the likes of The Mercy Seat, The Carny, The Weeping Song, Do You Love Me? ... and you will land on your knees!
There are a few tracks I regret not being on this album like "Papa Won't Leave You Henry" or "Sad Waters", but I guess you just had to make some cuts or else the album would need to be three hours long.
Check this album out, and if you dig it, don't walk, run to the shop and buy the other albums.
