Murder Ballads, but it's not really fair because it's the only one I know from beginning to end.

Murder Ballads is my favorite.

Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!! is in my top 5 records of all time, by anyone. It's how rock bands should age. The Stones could take a leaf out of Mr Cave's songwriting book, instead of re-hashing the same old sex n drugs n rock n roll adolescent wank fantasies.

Its almost up there with Dylan's mid 60's electric trilogy. An immense record.
"What should have been an enjoyable 90 minutes of nubile, high-school flesh meeting a frenzy of blood-caked blades, becomes instead an exploitational and complex parable of the conflicting demands of agrarianism and artistry. I voted a miss."

what other Nick Cave have you listened to IDYM?
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

The Boatman's Call
No More Shall We Part
Nocturama
Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus
Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!


are the ones i own. The Firstborn Is Dead and Tender Prey are the only ones i dont think ive heard at all. Ive got the greatest hits, too, which a friend gave me about eighteen months ago which is what got me listening in the first place. Im trying to get my hands onto the lot, just cannae afford it at the minute.

Henry's Dream, the only one I really know the whole album for.
