This should go down real well over here:

They included The Birthday Party discography on it, the higher spot they get is TWELVE.

Never heard it... simply because I'm not that interested in the Bad Seeds without Blixa. And now without Mick, Jesus. No offense intended to the band (Warren!), but it's like Nick Cave and his backup band now -- it's not the awesome that it used to be.

Your Funeral, My Trial is rated far too low as well.

Kind of my thought... I mean it wasn't as good without Blixa, and it is even less so without Mick Harvey.

I'm going to buy my ticket for the KC show in June. Last night, my buddy and I were going to try and get tickets but the box office was closed. I realized the show is on June 18th. This means I'll see Nick Cave on Wednesday night and then get to Chicago by Friday afternoon for the BBQ. That week in June is going to fuck faces.

Saw them last night. I've never bought any of their records but recognized a few songs just from exposure by my lady. Definitely not crap. Ellis was playing some sort of double-neck tenor guitar on the last song - two different scale lengths. Quite a raucous player.

Saw them last night, went in pretty much blind (except for the first Grinderman album, which I like a lot) and was BLOWN AWAY. Astounding, actually.

Literally one song I didn't love, and the lyrics really hit me hard.

Ellis is running that show, too. Nick Cave is impossible to ignore, but Ellis is the ringleader. He and the fucking weirdo drummer locked in and were sprinting the whole way.

I'm now a believer. Off to the record store!!

Has anyone ranked these records in this thread? I should really just have them all, but I could use a buyer's guide.

Great to hear they still can blow minds. You should have seen them 15 years ago!

Never been a fan but I really dig that. Sounds like a lifting of the veil of bullshit. And Oren Ambarchi's Knots. Watched the trailer for accompanying film, too. Looking forward to both.

I go back and forth on this band. I liked a few early tracks, particularly 'Deanna,' but most of his ballad type stuff - like on Murder Ballads really makes my skin crawl. And not in a good way.

But I like this track.

I sometimes wonder if that's just part of the whole schtick (and I'm a fan). I can't stand Deanna and even a lot of his other sacred cows (God Is In the House, etc.) but, goddamn, his fans (like my wife) can listen to those songs over and over and over, apparently. To me, it's almost performance art at that point as I just can't imagine a sane person thinking those songs are worth performing but, hey, different strokes, etc.

I really dug the last record. This new song sounds a lot like those songs.

I heard the whole album today. It's a lot like the song posted above. Slow & atmospheric, "haunting" I guess is the word. Almost no drums. One song is a duet with the classical soprano Else Torp, just gorgeous. The lyrics seem mostly about the death of his son. Different from anything he's done before, I liked it a lot.

I gave it the most cursory of listens. A dickish I am a shallow entitled millennial with no attention span. I have downloaded this and will pass ultimate judgement on this work based on "Hmmmmm. *Skip* Uh huh. *Skip* Yep. *Skip*. I see" listen.



Second song sounds like the Postal Service.

Rough film on many levels, but never 'over the edge into oblivion', which was what I was expecting.

Warren and Cave's relationship seems genuinely deep and gorgeous--this record/song cycle is obviously them alone. Didn't need anyone else there, really, to complete what was happening (with the exception of one song and Jim Sclavunos).

Slow burn, but I loved it.

Watching it in 3D was trippy.
