It's quite shameful that this band isn't on the website's official top 20, because their discography is so goddamn consistent! With a charming voice and great musicianship, Nick Cave has been able to maintain a streak of high quality records over the years, while most other artists only have significant critical success early on in their career. The band's music ranges from energetic (Let Love In, Tender Prey), to romantic (No More Shall We Part, The Boatman's Call), depressing (Skeleton Tree), and even a neat double album (Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus). He's also the best when it comes to writing gorgeous love songs like "Breathless", "Into My Arms", "Lucy", "Straight to You" and "The Ship Song". Overall, this artist sits very high on my personal list, and I'm really looking forward to more exciting releases in the near future.

Simply the best, and no one is really all that close. Three years from first discovering them and I still feel like they're the freshest thing ever. While it's easy to pick a favorite album or song it's even easier for both to change on a regular basis. Maybe it's not for everyone but it is so very much for me personally that I can't even comprehend why anyone wouldn't love Nick.

The only artist I know of to put out great albums every decade for four consecutive decades. Tender Prey in the 80s, Let Love In in the 90s, Abattoir Blues in the 2000s, Skeleton Tree in the 10s. This guy is pretty extraordinary.

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
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.

From zags7000
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
