From stangetzaway 07/12/2016 05:04
This rating is for the original lp and not the embarrassing cd re release. Normally bonus tracks are placed after the original lp so the album can be heard as intended. In their wisdom the brain surgeons at Liberation decided to plonk The Moon is in the Gutter and In the Ghetto in between the end of side one and the start of side two thus ruining the listening experience of one of the most idiosyncratic records I've heard. Lyrically one of the most poetic and powerful albums ever released and a fair eye opener when I bought it as a 14 year old. From Her to Eternity will never be everyone's cup of tea but for the fans it's unforgettable.

Nick cave's debut album. I still think it ranks amongst his best. It's the nearest any of his solo records get to the sound of the birthday party. Opener, a cover of Leonard Cohen's avalanche, is a superbly brooding start to a dark and creepy album. Best of the tracks are the Mark Twain inspired, saint huck, cabin fever , the title track, and the excellent closing track, a box for black Paul. I think my favourite is, well of misery, which has some wonderful backing vocals . Stunning. A brilliant first album from a man who's never made a bad record. Great.

One of the most jaw-dropping experiences you'll ever have. Punk meets the blues as Cave wails and shrieks through some of the oddest, most devastating music you'll ever hear. The title track is among Cave's best songs, while "A Box for Black Paul" features haunting, vivid metaphors referring to Cave's previous band The Birthday Party.

Favorite tracks: "From Her to Eternity", "A Box for Black Paul", "Saint Huck", "Avalanche"

The first time that I heard this record it kind of made me depressed, or perhaps it exasperated the down mood that I was in. The cd reissue seemed to be more of an interesting listen, although this is not any sort of party record by definition. I prefer latter day Cave and the Bad Seeds, but his early work with the band is still essential. This one though should be considered for only the die-hard fans.

Kind of eerie....but honestly you would have to be psychic to spot any sign of greatness in Cave based on this album. It is not at all bad, but it's a fledgling first effort from an artist who was still very much in a developmental stage.

Good, dark, somewhat-abstract alt rock. My rating reflects the cd reissue including "in the ghetto" (65) and "the moon is in the gutter" (55) (but i'm not considering the 1987 version of the title track).

This has to be the Bad Seeds' darkest recording in their entire career which automatically makes it the darkest recording ever (or close enough). That darkness doesn't comes in terms of mood, atmosphere or lyrics but as a whole concept of bizarre and raw sounds scattered around on the floor whic Cave picked up to craft the strangest and most uncomfrtable record ever and yet still sound masterfully focused and ahead of its time. This is the closest that somebody has been to replicate that unique feeling of wonder and enchantment of Beefhart's Trout Mask Replica but it still feels much as its own...

From hairymarx1 07/23/2012 21:28
Located at the intersection where art and life appear to coexist, Nick Cave's demonic and psychotic nuerosis expressed with this album is almost like an extension of his own funeral requiem. More to the point, Cave's masterpiece is a highly original expressionistic odyssey akin to a descent into the depths of hell. At the edge of dissonance, the albums tribal sledgehammer sounds and Cave's grotesque fables are an awesome combination. The images he creates include world's inhabitated by pirates aboard creaking ships and sacriligious interpretations of US 'Deep South' literary traditions. 'From Her To Eternity' is Cave at his visceral best. Sadly, though, many of his subsequent works lacked the allegorical story-telling and dramatic brilliance of this album and instead tended to slip into the realms of over-indulgence.
