    It's simply beyond me while a lot of cave fans cherish this close-to-rubbish album of boring, theatrical and self-centred songs so far removed from the organic vitality and crackling inspiration of earlier cave masterpieces. But hey, his brand new side project, Grinderman, is a return to form. So buy that one instead!

    Cave sounds like Gordon Lightfoot with two hands around his throat. Album is extremely hard to listen to at times but has its moments (but too few).

  1. Cave's latest finds the singer in perhaps the finest voice of his career, armed with a set of melodic ballads and mid-tempo rockers which exemplify his dedicated, traditionalist's approach to the songwriter's craft.
  2. No More Shall We Part is a beautiful, elegant record, capably fulfilling the promise of The Boatman's Call, but it exacts a harrowing toll from the listener. This is not a record to which you can listen lightly; if used as background music it will gradually darken your mood, like poison seeping slowly into a well.
  3. Melody rarely comes easily, but this is a flamboyantly musical record that creates the perfect backdrop for Cave's theological, metaphysical musings.
