Four years of silence after The Boatman's Call could have left fans of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds a little disgruntled but then he brought out No More Shall We Part and frankly, he knocked everyone’s socks off yet again. Haunting, beautiful, at times crushingly sad, at others, wryly amused by the ridiculousness of life. A masterpiece on CD and DVD from Mute.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 10th February 2015
I am rather new to the music of Nick Cave and after listening to this mesmerising CD came away with the impression that here was an unmined gem from the southern US. So "southern" is the music that I was very surprised to find that he is an Aussie. The first cut sets the tone for what is to come. "As I Sat Sadly By Her Side" is gripping both musically and lyrically. Here, as throughout the CD, Cave's piano casts a relentlessly somber pall over the vocals, thus giving the music its southern gothic feel.
