Nick Cave goes for a more bluesy direction on "The Firstborn Is Dead" and doesn't do a bad job at it. The songwriting and performances are still there, but the atmosphere suffers because of the new direction.

Fav Tracks: Tupelo, Wanted Man, Train Long Suffering, Blind Lemon Jefferson

Least Fav Track: Black Crow King

Un bajón con respecto a su anterior LP, pero sin duda es, también, un álbum disfrutable.
