8/10 Jack Customer review, 29th July 2015
An often overlooked album by fans of Cave's more recent work, this album is pretty much a blueprint for many Nick Cave albums to follow. The album works well as a collective, with the two most prominent tracks "The Weeping Song" and "The Ship Song" going on to become Nick Cave standards which all his other ballads have been measured to. This is certainly a high point in his recording career, although true commercial success was to come a few years later. A fantastic album for any fan of Nick Cave.
