Nick Cave at his very very best. The single best side B on any record ever - BUT printed on special E-Z scratch vinyl, so after the most minor of clumsy skips the record is scratched where any other record I have would remain untouched. twice. in 24 hours. : /

is it fair that i gave this a 3? is anything fair? Is life even worth living?

worth mentioning though, this record contains this lyric - "a man with plastic antlers, puts his bum against the glass" . any guesses which city Nick Cave lives in?

I don't think anyone writes more beautiful songs than Nick Cave, and this record contains a number of his most beautiful songs. As I Sat Sadly By Her Side, Hallelujah (his own, not a cover of the Leonard Cohen song!), God Is In The House, The Sorrowful Wife, the eponymous And No More Shall We Part and Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow are all heartstoppingly beautiful. The depth of the lyrics, the intensity of Nick's singing, the beautiful piano and the sound of the Bad Seeds - especially Warren Ellis's violin - all make for a truly mesmerising album, and there is not a weak song on it. One of my favourite records by one of the very greatest recording artists around.

And do look for the video of Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow on youtube - it's fabulous!

If you don't know Nick Cave's music well, I would recommend this or The Boatman's Call as a good place to start.

Arguably one of their best albums. Love or hate him there is no denying that Nick Cave is a phenomenal lyricist and musician. From 'I Sat Sadly By Her Side' to 'Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow' this is a must have album. Haunting, dark, sad and beautiful.

In my opinion this is by far and away the best Nick Cave & The bad Seeds album, it just gets better every listen. Standout tracks (if that's possible) Oh my Lord - it just builds and builds and builds, Fifteen feet of pure white snow, God is in the house - especially the last 30 seconds, Hallelujah - sublime. If you are new to Nick Cave this is the one to go for, if you were put off by the lack of the Bad Seeds on Boatman's Call (yes I know they were on it but they weren't obvious) they are back in FULL on this album. One Direction this is NOT. Buy it now.

Many albums and so many amazing songs have Cave and various members produced through the years. This is strangely reminiscent of the latest album push the sky away. This (at first) dry and somewhat dour ,takes time to reveal itself as possibly his finest hour , dark humour and a real attempt to push his vocal prowess. Every single play rewards the listener and reinforces the idea that this may be his best album , buy it.

I think this is my all time favourite of Nick Cave's albums. Some lovely tracks on here. Much gentler than most of his previous work. Lots of lovely piano and some very atmospheric numbers.
