Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds released their fourth record, the melancholy and grieving 'Your Funeral... My Trial' in 1986. Its traditional rock ethic only contributed to its woeful abandon: the piano and organ is dominant, creating a pantomimic sound, while Cave is in fine form, invoking Gothic and unsettling arrangements, such as the spectral guitars on "Stranger Than Kindness".

As with all the others in this reissue series, there is a DVD of extras. The interviews with the key players shed some light on this slice of mayhem. However, there are a few interviews with self-important fans waxing poetic & gushing inanely, etc I could do without. But I venture you'll walk away with a helluva lot of respect for Bad Seed Mick Harvey. Despite being so low key, it's clear he's pretty much the man behind holding this album (not to mention the band) together. In the end, any complaints are trivial compared to the music & the vastly improved sound quality.
