Artist: NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS
Album: MURDER BALLADS – 9th LP
Released: 2 February 1996 – 25 years ago today

AllMusic/Stephen Thomas Erlewine: “In some ways, Murder Ballads is the record
Nick Cave was waiting to make his entire career. Death and violence have always haunted
his music, even when he wasn’t explicitly singing about the subject. He sings about nothing but death in the most gruesome, shocking fashion. Divided between originals and covers, the record is awash in both morbid humor and sobering horror, as the Bad Seeds provide an appropriate backdrop for the carnage, alternating between blues, country, and lounge-jazz.”
Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume says: Agatha Christie translated to music.
