One of the best albums of 2016. Some heartbreaking lyrics, combined with some great instrumentation amount to a great album.

I feel like the first few tracks get lost in themselves, creating painful and hopeless grief. The emotional peak in 'I Need You' comes to terms with the reality by providing a heartwrenching goodbye, providing clarity and a way forward for the last two tracks, which in turn provide an amazing catharsis.

Overall very personal feel and lyrics are great. The music is arguably not accessible, this album has been a grower on me. I hesitated to rate it the first few times of listening to it because I found it very hard to get into, but for pure beauty alone, it gets a solid rating from me.

The title track is, without a doubt, one of the best album closers of all time.

As BEA's resident NCBS megafan I'm stoked this just reached #3 of the year, even if it's only temporary (that Car Seat Headrest album is fine, and both Frank Ocean and Bon Iver have a good chance of rising come 2017). The fact that this sits behind only "yay another Radiohead album" and "OMG Bowie's dead" right now happens to be good publicity for some of his other albums that certainly deserve to be ranked higher. I do wonder where this will place come next year; at the very least it should make #5 or #6 on the Nick Cave list fairly quickly.

His grief is tangible. Almost too much to take.

This album is quite something. Usually it takes me a few plays to properly get into a record but the first time I heard this I knew it was one of the best albums ever made. Its power and beauty was apparent from the outset, and though it's far from accessible its a strangely inviting listen. Of course, then it destroys you with its harrowing beauty; Cave's pain aching through his heartbreaking delivery. Nothing short of a masterpiece. Album of the year.
