One of the most interesting concept albums with great storytelling throughout. The sheer detail Cave is able to put into these verses is something to behold. At no point do I lose interest. Poor Billy Dilly done crossed the wrong man!
NR
Very good.

This one will always be the most fun I have listening to a Nick Cave record. Great concept and vision to write a collection of violent murderous short stories with troubled despicable characters and present them to the world in music form.
The musicianship is here, the storytelling is at a peak, the humour is sharp and even the collabs are tremendous. Great hits that are still heavily requested live, and understated songs that contribute to keep a well paced flow to the whole project.
