Murder Ballads The Boatman's Call Total length:. Austrian Top 40 . Let Love In is close tie for the 3rd spot. I've had it for ages but never realised how good it is. What's the best seeds album to start with? Yeah this Into My Arms - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - The Boatmans Call (CD pretty great, sometimes his voice irks me though.
Album Rating: 5. Yeah gave it a proper listen earlier on, very nice. I love the Bad Seeds but this is the most boring Nick Cave record i've heard. I thought it was boring because of this notion of piano ballad albums being dull I had, it's revealed itself as something pretty though after several listens.
Album Rating: 3. I love how this album is entirely piano based. In my opinion it adds more emotion to pretty much everything. Listening to this now and I'm nowhere near being disappointed.
Review Summary: If you only buy one album exploring love and the loss of it, make it this one. Rank: 52 for Next time someone Album) you, stick this on and brood about all that could've been and was cruelly snatched from your grasp.
The beginning and end of love are explored in this album. The middle is a lot more difficult, although I'm sure he's had a go. Cave explained it best himself when he spoke of duende, the inexplicable sadness, present in pretty much all love songs.
For where there is love there is also loss somewhere along the line. This album came the year after Murder Ballads, an album of songs about flower arrangements unless I completely misunderstood Into My Arms - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - The Boatmans Call (CD one. He'd broken up with his wife and also with PJ Harvey in rapid succession, not a good year for any man. He was also battling a heroin addiction which would not subside for a good few years yet, Album).
Instead of writing another album that swung between black comedy, violence that would make GG Allin blush and covers of traditional and Dylan songs, he made this. Some would say his masterpiece, a meditation on love and God and how love disappears. Now onto the music. The album starts with Into My Arms, a song of new and remarkably intense love opening with arguably the best opening line to an album "I don't believe in an interventionist God, but I know darling that you do".
This sets his stall out pretty early with the two main themes. Love and God. All this is set to an arrangement of piano and bass which is barely there, while Cave's voice rings out like an Australian Scott Walker, every vowel and every consonant etched into the speakers. Then comes Lime Tree Arbour, a song which for some reason always makes me wonder what it'd sound like in Elvis Presley's famous comeback special Elvis of course another Cave obsession.
This song, from which the album title is pulled, is a simple and beautiful love song written as only Nick can, with a fantastic arrangement. Yet lurking within the song is Into My Arms - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - The Boatmans Call (CD shadow of his love one's death. It's not just his prior reputation as a songwriter either, there is a definite hint that the one he sings of has passed away.
The song is also used in the BBC series Uncle at the end of the fifth episode of season two as well as appearing in the third episode of Ricky Gervais' Netflix series After Life. It also plays a diegetic part in the TV series War of the Worlds.
