It's like this album whole album was created to give you that dread feeling, the songs alone are quite simple, the lyrics aswell, but is the deliverance, the passion that It is singed and played that really makes this one of the greats.

From JulianR
pretty good. At first I was thrown off by the fact that the lyrics don't always match the time signatures, but as I got accustomed to his more free-form delivery in comparison to his previous releases this album got better and better

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.
