Abattoir Blues - The Lyre Of Orpheus

Nick Cave - Abattoir Blues/ The Lyre Of Orpheus

There aren't that many people in this world who can truly sing from their soul. When Nick Cave is singing you get the feeling that it is almost not quite human, on our level I mean. His voice seems to be the formation of a deep, dark soul that even he isn't able to fully understand. His passion is awe inspiring. I defy anyone to listen to -and I mean really listen- his latest work and not be moved.
Like Morrissey, I never liked Nick Cave. I think I used to say something like...'Oh is that the ugly looking Australian twat with the screeching whin'ey voice?', or words to that effect. Now I realize the error of my ways!
I reckon age has a lot to do with it. When you're in your twenties you don't care too much for lyrics over the music. You want a catchy tune or a banging beat to get off your head to or relax to. Who cares if the lyrics are shite? If anyone cared about shite lyrics when they were young then a lot of people, myself included, would never have even listened to Oasis never mind going to their concerts! (I am guilty of both charges..Oh and I still like them for some reason).
This album springs to life and jumps right out of the speakers with the first track:
Get Ready For Love.
This is a great tune. Screeching guitars, Upbeat, difficult to restrain yourself and not get up and start dancing like a fool. When you hear this, you just know you're going to like the album.
The second track, Cannibals hymn, is a bit less accessible to the non Nick Cave fan but sit back and go with it. You will be converted pretty quickly.
Don't miss Track 3 - Hiding All Away which shows you what Nick Cave is all about: Deep, melancholic Blues oriented tunes with a sense of the romantic poet about them.
The whole album is a mix of melancholic music with the trademark sharpness of lyrics and his take on the world which can make you smile at times, interspersed with some anthemic, upbeat, positive tunes that can carry you through the rest of the day.

This is a true masterpiece.
You just know a lot of thought and work went into this.

Nick Cave must be one of the best lyricists alive today.
Not many around like him that's for sure.

If you have ANY problems downloading from my 'FTP' links...



I Hope that anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of Nick Cave will take the chance and give this a listen. More albums of his to follow in the future. Plus another Tagging Program I have been playing around with.
Fuck it is H-O-T today..
