very, very good.,
This review is from: No More Shall We Part (Audio CD)
I'll try to avoid hyperbole in this mini review. This was the first Nick Cave album I listened to after hearing some songs of his, and I've been hooked on Cave since. The highlights on this album (for me, at least) are As I Sat Sadly by Her Side and God is in the House; the lyrics really striking a chord with me. I find that this album hypnotises me with the string arrangements and simple yet beautiful piano playing. Actually that pretty much entirely sums up the genius of this album- it doesn't try to impress on a technical aspect; there is nothing overly spectacular about the melodies, yet they are performed with such passion and the lyrics sung with such sad honesty that you can't help but sit up and take notice. I don't know, you just have to experience it for yourself.
Buy it, you _will not_ regret doing so.
