Product Description

Amazon.ca

After the Birthday Party ended in a manner similar to a train collision, frontman Nick Cave emerged from the wreckage and hooked up ex-bandmate Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld (on loan from the industrial group Einsturzende Neubauten), Barry Adamson (fresh from Magazine), and the lovely but corpse-pale Anita Lane. Thus the Bad Seeds were born, second only to Cave's former band in their ability to create a rumbling caterwaul. What makes the Bad Seeds stand apart, though, are the elements of delta blues that Cave dredges up from the darkest recesses of his black, black heart--blues unlike any you've ever heard before--and his Faulkner-meets-Lovecraft lyrical obsessions. "Well of Misery" shambles along drunkenly and eventually crumbles under its somnambulant pace. On the title track Cave exhorts, begs, and pleads like a whiskey priest begging for forgiveness after a bender while Bargeld's guitar shrieks and wails like a congregation of devils. Including two of Cave's more inspired covers--Leonard Cohen's "Avalanche" and Presley's "In the Ghetto"--From Her to Eternity captures Cave at the noisy intersection between the punk-rock entropy of the Birthday Party and his later incarnation as the gothic Elvis. Amazing, scary stuff. --Tod Nelson

4.0 out of 5 stars Avalanche alone is worth the acquisition Nov. 16 2012
By Peter Gueckel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This first Bad Seeds album marks a departure from the earlier Birthday Party material. The album lacks, perhaps, in discipline. Nevertheless, it has Nick's passionate rendition of Leonard Cohen's Avalanche. I also particularly like Cabin Fever, Well of Misery, From Her to Eternity and Wings Off Flies. There is much worth hearing on this good debut album. The DVD contains some more gems, including In the Ghetto. Get it to round out your collection of early Cave.

5.0 out of 5 stars a scarey debut, brilliant and foreshadowing... March 10 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nick Cave's debut is stark. A rechristened few members of the Birthday Party back up Cave as the brilliant Bad Seeds. First, the remastering is necessary because the original CD version was thin but now it's sonically rich. It is a scary listen. Granted, it begins with a Leonard Cohen cover which dispels the myths of Cave's past glories. The palette Cave has created combines elements of roots music, Americana and black humor. Second, lyrically and vocally Cave has progressed in spades and the Bad Seeds play with a minimalist approach, 'From Her to Eternity' sets the bar for all future Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds releases for they shed the past and create with such natural ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cave's masterful solo debut Aug. 19 2006
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This debut solo album by Cave has grown in stature down the years. The mood is Goth, the songs are mostly folkie laments, both lyrically and melodically impressive, his voice is like dark red velvet and the whole is dark, brooding and atmospheric. With the superb backing of Bad Seeds Blixa Bargeld, Mick Harvey, Barry Adamson and Anita Lane, this album is just perfect in its blood-cuddling rawness. I love the eerie cover of Leonard Cohen's Avalanche, whilst the striking images in Cabin Fever elevates an ordinary tune into the unforgettable. Well Of Misery stands out for its interesting vocal arrangement. Cave's cover of Elvis' In The Ghetto is quite stunning. The title track is an anguished and harrowing love song with atmospheric vocal samples and industrial infusions. With these songs Cave established himself in the great tradition of artists like Cohen, Richard Thompson (in his dark moments), Tom Waits, Peter Murphy and Michael Gira, as a master of the deep, dark lament.

3.0 out of 5 stars one of Cave's most haunting works Dec 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
The use of ambience and noises as essential elements are emphasized than on any other album, and the more rock-like songs continue the thrashing crashing colliding work of THe Birthday Party, while Cave's ventures into Americana and Delta Blues and balladry start to make their appearance as well. The result is a very atmospheric album that can't really be explained in any normal terms other than incredibaly scary, supernatural music that stands up to other works by post-punk bands that were popping around the same time---Sonic Youth's "Bad Moon Rising" and THe Swans "Children Of God...". "Saint Huck", "Cabin Fever", and the title track are long, thought-out aggressive masterpeices, but my personal favorite is the so spooky it hurts "Box For Black Paul". A frieghtening listen from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An explosion June 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is divine for its storming and pounding. We have strong evidence here Cave is the last great romantic poet. The music focuses on a kinetic and roiling set of rhythms over which Cave sings his dirges. My favorite is "Wings of Flies" which has some pretty darkly humorous imagery ("she loves me, she loves me not!") as well as an adolescent flare.

5.0 out of 5 stars giving it 5 stars even though.... Dec 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is so good that I am going to give it 5 stars even though the cover of Elvis' In the Ghetto is weak. The problem is that the lyrics of this song sound pretty lame compared to Nick's fantastical poetry. I don't think he really believed in it himself. That being said, I love this CD. It still, of course, bears heavy traces of Birthday Party, but what is wrong with that. I ask you: Does ANYONE rock as hard as Nick Cave? Of course, if you are reading this, you are a fan who has come to add his or her positive review as homage to the Man. Fact: Birthday Party/Nick Cave and the Seeds make the late sixties Stones (circa Jumpin Jack Flash, Gimme Shelter, etc.) look like a bunch of wimps. Am I right or what?

4.0 out of 5 stars Completely deranged and wonderful Feb. 18 2002
Format:Audio CD
If the phrase "atonal funk/blues caterwalling" sparks your interest, this is the CD for you. The Bads Seeds are excellent players who understand how important silences are to raising an unholy din. Cave sings with complete disregard for sounding pretty but can't help being musical (he has a strong, clear voice with an impressive range.) The lyrics range from stunning ("Saint Huck" is flat-out brilliant) to evocative to sometimes just melodramatic.
The original songs are strong enough, in fact, that the two covers are the weakest parts of the CD. "In The Ghetto" sounds like it was done on a bet to gain pop-radio play, but it does give you a chance get up and go to the kitchen for another cup of coffee. "Avalanche," starting the set, is more of a problem - this isn't one of Cohen's best lyrics, and Cave and the band sound restricted by the simplistic melody.
Nearly five starts, though, for the rest of the set (even for the unnecessary repeat of the title song, which at least reminds me of one of my favorite films). I may never have another Nick Cave recording, but I'm glad to have this one.
