Most Helpful Customer Reviews
i think the this is my favorite nick cave album, even though it's lacking in the diversity of most of his earlier releases. a friend once said it was like murder ballads on quaaludes and i can get that in terms of it being very set thematically (broken heart) however the sound is intimate and the songwriting is stellar.
i also really love this record since it's just one disc as opposed to the now standard 2. yes i know that less songs per side means it'll last longer, but it's nice to have more time to sit and enjoy the album before flipping it over.
First, this remaster definitely has a clarity to it that the original CD didn't; I hear things I've never heard before, which makes he upgrade worthwhile to me.
Unfortunately, both the DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes used what appears to be a DIFFERENT RECORDING of "Into My Arms", one of mt favorite tracks on the album. In this version, it sounds like Nick is saying "Innoo my alms" instead of "Into my arms".... I kid you not. Every time. There are a few differences in line delivery outside of this, too... not sure what they were thinking, but it's immediately noticeable and should not have been released this way.
The CD uses the correct version of the song. WTH?
The first time I heard Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds was when my local radio station played 'Into My Arms'. I had no idea what the song was and I had not heard of Nick Cave before but I was captivated. Fired up Soundhound and immediately bought 'The Boatman's Call' off iTunes. I have since gone on to buy and enjoy most of his other albums and remember being thoroughly thrilled/amused/scandalized by 'Murder Ballads'. I am glad to have finally got my hands on this CD+DVD release (for some reason it has been quite difficult to come by).
