Oh man. I'm pretty new to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and I wasn't sure if I'd like their individual albums or if I was better off with their compilation. But this is great. I love that their sound has evolved over the years, but they still have a consistent style. (The same can't be said about other bands that have been around this long.) I think this is going on my wishlist.

This is one intense artist,he just oozes drama,hurt,lust and vision and he has a band to back it all up. His wordplay has me singing along,"dress me up in that deep sea diver suit", you don't hear that line everyday! The first disc, Abattoir is more rocking, the second disc Lyre is more drama and quieter,and I gave it only 4 stars on account of that,but others might say 5 stars isn't enough.He has quite the catalogue,so check out this Aussie Leonard Cohen.
