Awesome! Thank you, I'll definitely listen to some of the albums you recommended.

Yeah tbh I think you’re probably better off starting somewhere else with him. If you want to get a feel for Nick Cave in general I’d say listen to some of his 80s work in post punk (either From Her to Eternity or Tender Prey would work), then try a few of his albums from the 90s (Murder Ballads is my personal favorite of what I’ve heard). That said, the only thing I think is essential to you going into Ghosteen specifically is Skeleton Tree, as both of these albums deal with his son’s death.

Hey! I wanted to listen to the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds record but I've never really listened to them before and they feel like the kind of band where I'd want to know their discography before listening to a new album. As someone who enjoyed Ghosteen, do you think I should go back and dig through their catalog a bit first or can I jump in with this one?
