I want to give this 100 so bad but that final part of 'The Sound Of War' irritates me. There's something so deeply honest, heartfelt and beautiful in this albums concept and delivery that makes it truly stand out from the crowd. Whether it be the fact Susanne Sundfør perfectly plays her voice to the melody, or the fact that the melody is simple on the surface, yet brimming underneath; it doesn't matter. Music For People In Trouble - like a lot of others in it's genre - is an exemplar ... read more

The first Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album that truly steps into its production shoes, 'Kicking Against the Pricks' is highly enjoyable while also remaining true to its roots of minimalism. Tracks range from catchy to menacing, all while flowing consistently to one another and utilising the same tools (low-key piano, metallic guitar shrieks in particular) in meaningful ways. It never feels too little or too much, especially when the lyrics are this good.

Raw and unfiltered that only scratches the surface of a sound so beautiful it aches. Aldous Harding has an exceptional voice that perfectly matches whatever tone she strives for, but can be unfortunately marred by the production on more ambitious songs. This album feels like a dissemination of a folk artists dabblings with vocal jazz that never ceases to encapsulate my attention, but some more refinement never hurt anyone.

The casualness of this album isn't as satisfying or as well executed as the minimalism of its predecessor, but a beautiful track list (albeit a little weak near the end) and mastery of tone help sustain my interest. There's always something interesting to hear on each song, whether it be the punctuation of Nick Cave's decrepit voice or the far-off guitar that's begging to be released.

To describe 'From Her To Eternity' as haunting, tense and tight would be an understatement. Every instrument sounds so highly calculated, so eerily trapped and stretched to the point of tearing that it's an absolute treat to the ears. An Incredibly well constructed and written piece of work that serves as an absolute staple of post-punk. However, the production held Nick Cave's voice back slightly, even if the minimalist tone of the album serves to its advantage.

Just a kid in Adelaide who likes music. My ratings are predicated primarily on my enjoyment, but the quality plays a part too.

As I just do this for fun I like to keep my reviews short, but I promise I have a lot more to say for each album. If you have any questions about my thoughts on an album I've reviewed, feel free to leave a comment!
