The CD starts with a quasi-religious, almost hymn-like song, in Portuguese no less. I liked it from the start as I do the title cut, the epic style of which rather defines Nick Cave for me.
In the Hammer Song, Mick Harvey's guitar work gives it the feel of a theme of a Western movie as the vocals outline the plot.
Next to the Hammer Song, my favorite is the Weeping Song, with its unusual cadence and call/response vocals.
The funniest cut is the Witness Song which takes a perhaps inadvertent crack at faith healing and the power of suggestion.
There is not one badly written song on the album, though obviously I have my favorites. The Good Son is another fine effort from Nick Cave and serves to bolster his reputation not only as a musician, but as a songwriter whose command of language sets him far apart from most of his contemporaries.

"The Good Son" is reminiscent of Leonard Cohen's "Songs of Love and Hate," but with more of an edge. Read morePublished on Dec 17 2001 by Paco Rivero

I like this album a lot. But then, I also love Kicking Against the Pricks. I think the songs "The Hammer Song" and "Lucy" get underrated. Read morePublished on Aug. 26 1999 by JEFFREY C ZOERNER
