I am a big Nick Cave fan - if you like NCATBS you tend to love them, and have enjoyed this album. While it's good, I hate to say it but it really isn't up there with their best. The side project Grinderman last year was fantastic, Tender Prey, Abattoir/Lyre, Let Love in and No More Shall We Part all in different ways show case them at their best - from their most melodic to their rawest. There are a couple of great tracks on this, and its great if the good reviews and commercial success draw more people into Nick's strange world, but we should recognize it for what it is - fun, but I'm not sure how hard they were really trying?
