2013 EU issue on 180g LP+download = Cave’s most enigmatic, elegant and sophisticated meld of words and music, at times more of an impressionistic jazz event than a rock album and a triumph for Warren Ellis as The Bad Seeds’ musical coordinator. Cave, meanwhile, is a stoic, aged observer of humanity’s biologically-encoded foibles, watching the “local girls” of Water’s Edge “with a bible of tricks they do with their legs”. Made modern yet timeless by Nick Launay’s crisp mix, Jubilee Street builds to a pulsating sonic climax, Mermaids is slyly melodic and the extraordinary, apocalyptic Higgs Boson Blues appears to glimpse life, the universe and everything in the collision of Robert Johnson and Miley Cyrus. Stunning

One of the finest songwriters of the post-punk era, whose hybrid of blues, gospel, and rock complemented his dark, literary style and baritone vocals. It's been nearly five years since Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds issued the manic, intense rock cabaret that was Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! Since then, the formation and breakup of Grinderman yielded two studio offerings, and Cave and Warren Ellis have composed a few film scores.

 
Push the Sky Away, produced by Nick Launay, is painted with a deliberately limited sonic palette by Ellis. The album's sequencing makes it feel like a long, moody suite. While most of these songs contain simple melodies and arrangements that offer the appearance of vulnerability and tenderness, it is inside this framework that they eventually reveal their sharp fangs and malcontent.
