2.0 poorGhandhiLion | October 4th 19

Program music that relies heavily on ambience to accompany the lyrical content fails when said rambience is dated and unmemorable. Remove Cave's voice, and few would care for this shapeless rambient pop album that lacks strong melodies. rThe title track is an overlong rehash of New Age/Ambient/Electronic tropes that have long been rexpanded upon since the heydays of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Schulze.rThis is about as interesting as the New M83 album which is another example of shallow revivalism. rUnlike M83 though, Nick Cave is really cool. Music journalists will eat this up and herald it as ranother masterpiece.r2.87/10 - Only recommended to his most loyal fans

4.5 superbBenjamin Kuettel STAFF | October 4th 19

The band follow their masterpiece Skeleton Tree with a less dark direction, even more sparse and ethereal than their previous work has been this past decade. This is practically a full on ambient album, often being not much more than synths and piano alongside Cave's voice. His lyrics continue to be wonderfully impressionistic, ranging from the surreal and fantastical to some very intimate and personal musings as well. It's not quite as consistently engaging as Abattoir Blues, ...Sky, or Skeleton Tree but is another triumph and one of the finest albums of the year. Highlights include "Bright Horses" "Sun Forest" "Galleon Ship" "Leviathan".

3.0 goodblurred vision-ary | October 9th 19

horribly bloated, and not at all adventurous musically. the two long form tracks on LP2 are just bad. that being said, the good parts of this, like Galleon Ship and Fireflies, are fantastic. doesn't trump Skeleton Tree as their venture into electronics, and is nowhere near the quality of Orpheus/Abattoir as a double album. Though the praise was to be expected, seeing as how this site loves jacking off to limp, lifeless synth music.

4.5 superbellagos | November 12th 19

This record exists in a world of its own, Cave's poetry backed by the minimal ambience conjures fitting images of love and loss while hinting at a greater meaning beyond it all.

4.0 excellentdedex | October 22nd 19

Poignant lyrics as always with him, but the music itself did not engage me as much as I thought it would. This is still a beautifully sad record that needs to be listened to. 3.8

3.0 goodLucman | October 17th 19

I want to like this, I really do. After falling in love with Cave's music I was certain I would. But this album....I mean I can kinda get it? It's very lush and emotionally heavy, however, there is nothing there instrumentally. Take away Cave's vocals and you have a fairly unremarkable ambient record.

4.0 excellentDoublez38 | October 9th 19

Nick Cave could tell us, sing for us, shout out his pain and sorrows on 1 million pieces that he would still have the strength to touch us every time deep inside ourselves. This third part is so beautifully cold and sad, but proves once again that Nick Cave and his band are able to offer us a magnificent album, whose level of writing, the direction is so similar to a cinematographic work that the images will automatically come to mind with every word, every sound

Why do I dislike one of my favourite artist's albums while everyone else loves it?? What is this cruel trick!
