2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, 7 April 2009
This review is from: The Boatman's Call (Audio CD)
No doubt the Nick Cave aficionados who have given this album five stars will vilify me as a Philistine but as someone who was drawn to Nick Cave by tracks such as 'Babe, I'm on Fire' and 'My Beautiful World', this album was a disappointment. In comparison to the aforementioned tracks this is an extremely turgid album. If you are into Nick Cave and want to sit down and listen carefully to the lyrics, appreciate the musicianship and relate the whole ensemble to what was going on in his life during that period then maybe this album is for you. On the other hand of you want entertainment such as that afforded by the splendid 'Babe, I'm on Fire', then you should choose another album.

Indeed this cd was a disappointment.. mainly because the 'Bas seeds' don't appear to be present.. its more like a solo album and lacks variety. Its the one NC album im really having trouble getting into, played for times in s row while quietly working and it kinda board me, kinda shocking considering how good the other albums are i liked his other 'piano' based material.

Mmmm,
Try actually listening to it...when not doing a variety of other things..Work included.
Your comment reminded me of all the people out there who put a record on, and then promptly start to vacuum the carpets.
Next time you are paying a little attention to your wife or girlfriend or boyfriend, don't be leaning over them trying to write an email.
If you pay attention, you will be rewarded.

Actually, I love both Babe I'm On Fire and this much mellower affair.

I, on the other hand, think Babe, I'm on Fire is about 10 minutes too long and it's parent album (Nocturama) the weakest Nick Cave album to date.
