    When Cave is bad he's unbeatable, but when he's good he's darn near awful. [Apr 2005, p.133]

    I find the tracks on this three disc set are essential additions to my Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds collection. Well-recorded and performedI find the tracks on this three disc set are essential additions to my Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds collection. Well-recorded and performed nearly all the songs are deserving of A listing and placement on an otherwise ordinary studio release without the B moniker. I wish all performers/groups would release this type of material. For example Radiohead includes a lot of extra material on their re-issues and likewise I find true first rate gems in their extra material as well. Full Review »

    I laughed, I cried, I howled in delight at the thought of absorbing the three discs in this whomping box of love, pain, death and dark humor I laughed, I cried, I howled in delight at the thought of absorbing the three discs in this whomping box of love, pain, death and dark humor over the coming several months. I am planning special road trips to dark and wild environments just so I can howl along with Nick and the Bad Seeds as industrial landscapes, stark deserts and majestic abysses roll past my eyes! Brace yourselves, and buy it now... Full Review »
