CRITIC REVIEWS

GIGsoup
The eighth studio album from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds is a perfectly encapsulated slog of rock and roll decadence.
90
AllMusic

Keeping the same line-up from Henry's Dream, Nick Cave and company turn in yet another winner with Let Love In.

Pitchfork
The Bad Seeds had always traded in high drama and dissonance, but never before had they sounded this imposingly heavy.
80
Rolling Stone

With Let Love In, Cave has regained the frenzy of his early work and fused it with his more recently found focus. The result is pain and pleasure transformed into rhythm, sex and death.

This album is so close to perfect. The only songs keeping it from 10/10 is Nobody's Baby Now and Ain't Gonna Rain Anymore, and those songs are by no means bad, but they're not even close to the incredibly high standard set by songs like Lay Me Low or Loverman.

If not for Jangling Jack, which I don't care for, this would be a 100 album for me. It's the band's best work all things considered. Love the heavier rock influences, the gothic sound and lyrics in some of these cuts, the ballads, the emotion...the lyrics are extremely memorable and meaningful and the songs are live favorites up to this day for most fans. I'll listen to this till I'm done listening to music.

GO LISTEN TO: Lay Me Low.
