I'm so disappointing in this site for not having a single one of his albums in even the top 300. I've also got to say, how is The Boatman's Call ranked as his best album? How is Tender Prey all the way down at 9? How is Murder Ballads above Let Love In? How does Henry's Dream not even make top 10? How does Skeleton Tree have the highest average rating? What were you guys thinking when you rated these albums? I mean, every one of them is great, the guy couldn't write a bad song if he tried, but this order really baffles me.

Probably the artist with most equally brilliant albums. Can't decide on my favourites, and pointing out his "best" or "most popular" or "most important" album is impossible.

From Strangel 05/17/2016 10:11
I think he's at his best with his brooding dark ballads, laced with cynical observations and heart rending pathos of a restless soul. It's when his poetry really takes hold. Some of the imagery portrayed in Darker with the Day, for example, is utterly captivating. His stage presence is more pronounced in some of his more intense, raucous songs where he hovers like a shadow across the crowd before him.

While the Boatman's Call is justifiably considered his masterpiece, I would place No More Shall We Part as its equal. It does not have a weakness. Each song is beautifully arranged and deeply moving with a longing melancholy and existential musings. If you haven't fully immersed yourself in NMSWP then I urge you to take the plunge.

We are lucky to have his art here at this moment in time.

Most things they do are fantastic and the ones that aren't are still pretty good. No bad albums at all. Some are better than others, Kicking Against the Pricks is one I probably wouldn't listen to again. However, that's only because they have so many others that are better. Personal favorite...Let Love In.

One of the best bands in history. Their songs rank musically and lyrically among te best. Dark, heartbreaking and filled with stories, their songs have many faces and good quality

The Boatman's Call is far from Nick Cave's best. His earlier work is seriously underestimated. For people having difficulty to grasp the beauty of his first albums, suggest to listen at "Kicking against the pricks (best covers album ever) or the Firstborn is dead".

this is where it gets a little doubtful, about this site. no mercy seat, nothing from the first ten years, the best ten years in nick cave's case. that's just plain wrong.
