10/10 Joel Customer review, 21st September 2014
I am not a man who gives out 10/10's lightly (despite what me review history may suggest) but Tender Prey is one of those albums that is without a doubt a masterpiece. Tender Prey is a dark album, written in the late 80's when Nick Cave and about half of The Bad Seeds were struggling with a heroin addiction, but surprisingly easy to get into. Both the band and Nick himself are on fire on Tender Prey, with Nick Cave demonstrating his lyrical genius with every line and The Bad Seeds sounding unlike any other band in existence. Each song is catchy enough to get stuck in your head for weeks while the lyrics roll back and forth in your brain long enough to make you question your sanity. Plus, The Mercy Seat is on this album, which is probably the best song that anyone on planet Earth has ever written.
