Here Nick Cave revisits his ‘birthday party’ days with three of the bad seeds in tow and when he starts spitting lyrics like teeth during ferocious opener ‘Get it on’ you know that this album is going to be good. By the sleazy second track ‘No Pussy Blues’ there should be no doubt. Here there is none of the subtle meanderings of the seeds but pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll, they say the devil has the best tunes and these eleven are definitely some of them. Dirty and sexy this is Nick and Co letting there hair down and turning the distortion up. It is a wake up call to any up and coming young bands that these guys in there forties and fifties can make such a brilliant racket. Ok there is still the stain of the seeds at there loudest and birthday party at there mentalist and there is the fact of Cave’s distinctive voice but all in all this a cracking album by men growing old disgracefully.
