Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus. The man (and his band) is physically incapable of delivering a bad record. By my count, this is the ninth great album by the Bad Seeds in a row. I think by this point, Cave has surpassed all his peers to become a Cohen / Dylan figure for our generation. Thoroughly recommended, as are all his other discs since Tender Prey.

SLB: I didn't even know they had a new one out! Thanks. Ever seen Nick Cave in Johnny Suede?

Long time ago, yes. IIRC, he was rather good. Ever see him in Ghosts of the Civil Dead?

No, not yet, heard it at a friends though and was not sure I liked the in Love Nick. But perhaps that is because I never really expected that he would be. Sigh, jealousy maybe is creating my bias??

I will listen again, now that you have again endorsed it, and see it with different ears and get back to you.

Such a statement seems excessively generous to mediocre fare like The Good Son, Murder Ballads and Nocturama. Maybe the brilliance of Boatman's Call allows for some slack to be cut.

I disagree, all three of those records are excellent, in my opinion.

I like to think that Good Son, Murder Ballads and Nocturama form an "S" trilogy: Sap, Self-parody and Sleepwalking. But that's just my opinion. And as we all know, Nick Cave at his worst is better than many pop artists at their best.
