No More Shall We Part contains a greater wealth of musical invention and lyrical intelligence in its 68 minutes than most acts manage in an entire career. Cave is not merely in a different league from most of his peers; he's scarcely even playing the same game. No More sees a renewed emphasis on the virtuosity of Cave's longtime backing band, the Bad Seeds (Cave's last album, 1997's superb The Boatman's Call was a relatively sparse affair). The Seeds decorate the sprawling ballads on No More Shall We Part with aplomb, helped on several tracks by the crystalline harmonies of folk singers Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Cave's lyrical preoccupations remain constant--God, love (and the loss thereof), and death. As ever, Cave deals with these themes with great agility and imagination, and, as ever, he is funnier than he is generally given credit for. --Andrew Mueller

This is the first Nick Cave album I have bought in a few years. His style changes so much from album to album that you can never know what to expect upon opening a new CD. Admittedly, there have been a couple that I did not really care for. But this album seems to be the next incarnation of Cave's musical life. And if this is where he is going with his music, I'll happily follow.
This album is full of heartache and despair tempered with the subtlety of Cave's vocals. The tone of the songs is carried through their tumultuous music. He struggles with love and infidelity in "Sweetheart Come" and "The Sorrowful Wife". He also takes the plunge into religion and the existence/nonexistence of God in "God is in the House" and "Oh my Lord." These are topics found often in Cave's catalog of songs. This is the kind of album you find yourself searching for at two in the morning during a thunderstorm. Even at two in the afternoon, you will find yourself transported to that place.

I listened to a while ago "Where the Wild Roses Grow" when my friend had visited me. She claimed she adored Nick Cave's voice, and I hissed and said that he was dull and lacked any spark. Oh, but I was wrong. This week was my friends birthday. I went out with another friend of mine to purchase this album for her, since she claimed she loved his voice so much. I brought the CD home and began to listen to it -- I fell in love and kept it for myself. I decided to get her something of heavy metal that she would probably much prefer. THAT is how much I love this album -- and now, I am hooked on Nick Cave. His songs grow on you, and you can't fight the urge to have it in your CD player all the time on those long and dreary days.
"As I Sat Sadly By Her Side" is my favourite song, it's beautifully written and will let your thoughts drift along a country road in your mind. "We Came Along This Road" is also a wonderful song to listen to, and is also another favourite of mine. The rest is also wonderful. However, different songs evoke different feelings in different people.
If you're looking for songs that grown on you, and everytime you put them on you feel as though you are hearing it for the first time -- then this is the album for you.

This is a great album. The intelligence of the lyrics alone put this up there with Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks," but it's more personal, and thus more immediate than even that great Dylan effort (and Cave's a better singer). The religious themes of Cave's songs (often allegories, such as "Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow"(spiritual blindness)) may take some listener's by surprise, but song craft and story telling quickly take over. In many of the songs, the gentle harmonies of Anna and Kate McGarrigle wrap around Cave's singing, elevating them even further. This assistance is particularly dramatic in "O My Lord."
I think it's fair to assume that Nick Cave, at this point in his career and life, is a Christian. But he's the kind of Christian that doesn't seek a comfortable faith. Like Simone ("Waiting For God") Weil, he sees the importance of the outcast, the outsider, who believes, but on terms that are true to themselves - and to God. The lyrics of "God is in the House" takes direct aim at suburban churchgoers who seek a fear-free life in their "little church," which is of course painted white. Putting God in a manufactured box is ridiculous, and that is Cave's sarcastic point. But sarcasm is only a small part of "No More Shall We Part." Overall, there is the sense of hard won truths in an ongoing journey, delivered beautifully for the listener to ponder over, and maybe even as prompt toward prayer.
As a side note, in a way it's a shame that there's been such controversy over whether or not Evanescent is a "Christian" band (read the lyrics, not their public statements), though I think the controversy is rooted more in that group's hesitancy on how to respond, and whether the wrong response would thus kill their just-starting careers .

When I was a kid, I used to get this candy called Mamba, which contained soft fruit candy of different flavors. But there was only one flavor I yearned for: Strawberry. The rest was only okay at best, but the Mamba strawberry candies were what made the whole package worth it. And I could bare the rest, as long as the few strawberries were there for me to eat at the end.
I feel the same way about No More Shall We Part in a musical sense. By the end of the album, some of the songs drag and go on for too long. Others tend to sound similar to tracks that came only two songs before it. But Nick Cave more than makes up for it with the small bits of strawberries he sprinkles within the album. Listen to "Love Letter," possibly the the most gorgeous song Cave has yet written, both in melody and prose (both juxtaposing into each other perfectly). Or take the rockers "Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow" and "Oh My Lord," where Cave demonstrates how absolutely powerful he is in his songwriting and vocals. And after about four nearly dead tunes, No More Shall We Part concludes, almost apologetically, with "Darker With the Day," a song that will be front-runner in the second Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Greatest Hits album.
Even when the songs as a whole don't work, Cave's poetic lyrics do, as his fans could testify. One trait I have always admired in Cave is his willingless to draw inspiration from any source, even the Bible. Here, Cave reaches into his spiritual gut more than ever, using religious words like he was doing Christian album, yet exposing many of fundamentalist drivel for what it really is.
