Like a dream you're not quite sure you had
2013 | Label: Bad Seed Ltd / AWAL

Nick Cave’s 15th album with the Bad Seeds, Push the Sky Away, doesn’t want to be a masterpiece. Sure, it’s got a couple of songs — the lilting, menacing “Jubilee Street” and the creeping, spiraling “Higgs Boson Blues” — that push past the six-minute mark, and ponders subjects as weighty as the origins of the universe and the apocalypse (in the same song, yet).

Still Gold in Them There Fields

Of course, a Cave waxing will always have the capacity to effect the all-important connection between bum and seat -- the charts would indeed be Too Big Without Him -- but even true believers have started to build a Fortress Around Our Hearts that Cave recordings have found it increasingly difficult to permeate; we've stopped watching Every Breath He Takes. To those who've been unable to stand losing the man who gave us 'Can't Stand Losing You', I can report that this, happily, is one record to which you won't be saying 'Dont' Stand So Close to Me'. It will have you Walking on the Moon with gratitude. If We Should Ever Lose Our Faith in Him, this will remind us that Every Little Thing He Does can still be Magic.

A slow burn, reminds me of Dirty Three

I was initially turned off by some of the clumsy sounding lyrics, but the restrained and mature singing and musicianship have made this one of my favourite Nick Cave albums.

The best since Your Funeral...My Trial

This is the best Bad Seeds album since Your Funeral...My Trial. This haunting recording is the least "commercial" of Cave's Bad Seeds output since Your Funeral, though it is by no means obscure.

The best since Your Funeral My Trail

JEANNE.B

This is the best (and least "commercial", though by no means obscure) Bad Seeds album since Your Funeral My Trail. It’s also got one of the best rock ballads about the Standard Model of particle physics...ever.
