Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Skeleton Tree
Less is more. The new Bad Seeds album almost sounds like a solo Nick Cave record. The songs are very sparse and loosely structured; they’re almost soundscapes at times. Spare piano melodies give some structure. More than ever, Cave reads his poems out aloud and keeps the music in the background. His singing is very vulnerable; this record feels like his most personal to date. A document of personal love and loss that will leave no one untouched.
Best song: I Need You
