The secret to Nick Caves success has always been his ability to surround himself with the very best musicians and creative minds to make up his Bad Seeds entourage. A listing of past Seeds is quite literally a who's who's of contemporary alternative music:Mick Harvey , Blixa Bargeld , Hugo Race , ex partner Anita Lane , Kid Congo Powers , Roland Wolf , James Johnston and Ed Kuepper come quickly to mind . And so it goes 'Push The Sky Away ' is no exception . It is the band's first album not to feature founding member Mick Harvey but founding member Barry Adamson returns since 'Your Funeral... My Trial (1986)'and is the last album to feature Conway Savage prior to his death , plus there's Martyn Casey (Triffids) on Bass , Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three) on Fender Rhodes, Flute, Guitar (Tenor), Viola, Violin , Nick Launay as Engineer and Producer and would you believe THE Cat Stevens credited with Photography
'Push The Sky Away ' is a tour de force and very close to Caves best album all tied together with the epic "Jubilee Street" coming roughly half way into the album
The Nick Cave documentary '20,000 Days On Earth' is well worth checking out being free and available on YouTube. The documentary lifts the veil on some of the making of 'Push The Sky Away' as well offers a beautiful narration of Caves life up until that point by none other than Cave himself along with rare photos and footage not before seen by the public. There's even a Kylie Minogue appearance discussing 'that song' but more interestingly Michael Hutchence .Essential viewing for all Cave fans
I remember hearing from Nick Cave fans how disappointing or inconsistent this album was to previous efforts. For me, this album enabled me to listen to a whole Nick Cave album and then delve into his back catalogue to appreciate his other contributions.
Perfect album!!! One off the most underrated albums I have ever seen
Nick, dear Nick. The titlesong is on my top-10 ever songs. Such beauty..
Nick's best work, actually.
I'm reading how many have called this 'a grower', so maybe my opinion will change. It just struck me as a little sparse. I like Nick Cave when he's messy - this is so understated. Maybe I'll come to appreciate it more...?
The first time I heard, push the sky away, my initial reaction was, is that it? After repeated listens I realised the space and almost emptiness was the whole point. Nick Cave let's this album breathe. It moves slowly but it seeps into your soul and once it's got you, it won't let go. I now put, push the sky away, in the top three Nick Cave records. It's sublime, with, jubilee street, mermaids, and, we real cool, my favorites, with, wild lovely eyes, and, higgs boson blues, also great. A superb album from a man who just seems to get better and better.
Another great release from a stellar artist. MEZ
The latest album from my favorite band is yet another high mark in a career full of them. How many artists can say their 15th album was this great? Not many.
Favorite tracks: "Jubilee Street", "Higgs Boson Blues", "Push the Sky Away", "We No Who U R"
Redécouverte pour moi de cet artiste que j'avais un peu oublié. Et retour en force avec un superbe album qui est passé en boucle sur ma playlist pendant de nombreuses semaines .
