Great!!! (If you like that sort of thing),
This review is from: Murder Ballads (Audio CD)
I actually love this album, but have to say it is an acquired taste. It focuses on, as the title suggests, murders. It is quite morbid and could be described as shocking. The content is sometimes explicit and there is a small amount of bad language....but what do you expect with a title like "The Murder Ballads"? I think this this is a great album and even find myself singing along. If you like Nick Cave, buy it. If you have a slightly warped mind, buy it. If you are rather morbid or have a fascination with murder, buy it. If you have an open mind and are prepared to encounter something new, buy it. On the whole I think everyone should buy it, if for nothing else, than to be impressed that Nick Cave managed, to a) come up with the idea in the first place, b) put the subject matter into lyrics and to music, and c) get away with it.
