An album full of beauty but marked by tragedy. Nick Cave creates a fully visioned world within his palms and holds you captive there. The music is a great leap in direction for the band and showcases their gift for texture. Additionally it serves as the perfect end to the Bad Seeds’ 2010’s trilogy including; Push the Sky Away and Skeleton Tree. Honestly it is an album to be listened to, not read about. So sit down in a quiet room and let Ghosteen take you away from reality.

Stunning, stunning, stunning!

This is the album I’ve been waiting for from Nick for nearly 2 decades. He’s written amazing albums consistently in that time but I knew he had the capacity to write another absolute masterpiece (the Bad Seeds included of course).

This album has touched me deeply like few others.

The piano, the atmospheric soundscapes, the poetry, choir-like accompanying vocals, dark dreams dressed in light themes - it’s all there in this album. Nick has even stretched himself with his vocal range whereby his higher pitch almost seems unbearably fragile... and he pulls it off like I would never have expected.



‘A spiral of children climbed up to the sun’...

I avoided Skeleton Tree precisely for the reason that Nick Cave had suffered a tragic death in his family and it seemed like he was working through his grief and at that point I had no interest in intruding on his suffering.
However things are not so raw and it feels right to listen to his new album. Thankfully, it is a stately and beautiful piece of work that is dignified in both accepting loss and its celebration of life. Well done, Nick

A masterpiece of the human experience. This is as good as music/art gets period.

Tried to write the full review but it ended up sounding too much like fanboying for my own taste. So I'll just say this: Skeleton Tree was absolutely incredible and possibly AOTD for me, and after several listens Ghosteen is even better.

It will take time to form a complete opinion or grade for this one. Listened to it 5 times with the eager expectation I take on anything by Nick Cave. And I have been totally captured and sometimes judging, trying in my mind short seconds- 'good, bad or excellent', - and then back to the experience. I'm sure 3-4 songs will last a long long time, maybe more songs. A few songs only holds therapeutic chants or sentences trying to turn meaningless around in new ways.

It's a more calm grief than 'Skeleton Tree' which was almost manic an lifeless at times. This is more intimate, I think, and even more depressing at times. And I shiver deep down by the beauty.

And you never heard Nick sing like this before. No limitations. But no anger.
