*** (three and a half stars outta five)
Well overall, I thought this record was good. I am a big fan of Nick Cave’s older stuff, so I’m always trying to listen for that earlier sound. I think it’ll be a great record to sip whiskey on the rocks to.
The first song from Nick’s new band Grinderman, “Get It On, is one of the gems—just when you’re about to skip to the next song, the piano comes in and you’re like, “F—k yes! Another standout is “Honey Bee (Let’s Fly To Mars)—a great song and I love the organ sound. But my favorite song on the record is “(I Don’t Need You To) Set Me Free—sweet bass line, brilliant song, classic Nick Cave. I will buy this record.—Matt Hensley
