9/10 Brett Staff review, 18 September 2009
Warren Ellis from Dirty Three and Nick Cave from Nick Cave have spent a bit of time together in recent years doing fantastic film scores and here we've got a double CD collection of them, presented in a handsome gatefold-style pack along with some selected odds and ends. I've seen a few of the films involved (which include John Hillcoat's The Proposition and the forthcoming adaptation of The Road, The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, The Girls of Phnom Penh and others) and while their sounds complement and support the visuals beautifully there's a surprising flow and consistency to this material which works very well indeed as a pair of distinct albums. The first contains the bigger pieces, ranging from melancholic themes which evoke the hardships and pathos of life in years gone by and the dignity (or lack thereof) of those who have no choice but to struggle through it any way they can. That's always been a favourite theme of Nick Cave's but the quiet intensity of these instrumentals, in which Ellis's trademark plaintive violin is always a standout, really works to complement his usual methods of tackling it: those darkly allegorical lyrics. Disc two has more brief, incidental pieces but the quality doesn't even hint at dropping for a second. Spend a couple of hours in the company of White Lunar and you'll come out the other side smothered from head to toe in gooey satisfaction.
