The movie brought an oceanstorm in my head, snot ran from my nose and tears welled. It's even hard to listen to this album. Sometimes so devote from emotions. Such unspeakable loss doesn't make it naturally sung, or even recreated. But it's Nick. And he sticks to something he's always done. Trying to be true.

Music does a lot of things for me, one thing it barely ever does is make me cry but when this album reaches "I Need You" it takes even me down.

A haunting piece of music. For those who don't know during the recording period one of Cave's sons died in an accident nearby. When you have this knowledge you will listen to the album with a whole different perspective.

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.
