More reissue goodness from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds; this time it's the rather sweetly titled Let Love In, to which we ask Nick: what's the catch? The catch is of course that this is as ever a dark collection of cuts about loneliness and romantic insecurity (just look at those titles: "Do You Love Me?"; "Nobody's Baby Now"; Lay Me Low"). Somebody make a time machine and go back and hug the 1994 Nick Cave.

9/10 Customer review, 7th July 2013

Love may be the overall theme, but the menace of possession, the instinct of lust and the atmospheric tension that exist within this record herald this work of art, as quite simply unique. From Martin P. Casey's rumbling, sexual bass in opener 'Do You Love Me?,' to the clang of the bell that echoes throughout 'Red Right Hand', 'Let Love In' is at it's very least a powerful record that encapsulates Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds as a visceral and charmingly attractive band; sonically & lyrically. There's a sensuality within the music of an almost vampiric quality, which couples itself majestically with the lashes of force that the band deliver in songs such as 'Loverman' or 'Thirsty Dog'. This makes the album a multi dimensional piece, as several genres tie to the 45 mins 24 secs of music that will take the listener from a rockabilly-country twang, to piano based songs of ghostly melancholy.

Johnny Cash sang 'Love is a burning thing' in 'Ring Of Fire', hinting at it's pitfalls with a touch of upbeat truth. In this record however, Cave and the band show you everything you might want to forget about love. All in all, a record that must be heard in it's entirety to be appreciated - if you're lucky enough, grab it on vinyl.
