"This is the sort of album that should be made more often. The guitars have resonance and power and sound like they know what they're doing. Added to Nick Cave's voice and the effect is wonderful. Admittedly they might suffocate the vocals somewhat but given Cave's lyrical work, it almost seems appropriate. The CD is a little short however ( just clocking in at a half an hour ).
The DVD is amazing - I've probably played this more times than the CD itself. OK it's about 17 minutes long but what you get pure controlled chaos. The band don't talk to the audience or even themselves apart from Thomas Wydler once shouting " eins, zwei, drei, vier " but the musicianship is wonderful.
Of course this is going to be bought as an look as to see how The Bad Seeds came about. But it easily stands alone by itself. Recommended regardless of the history behind it"
Great treat for Nick Cave and Die Haut fans

""Burnin' the Ice" is a fascinating glimpse into Nick Cave's "in-between" period - in between the final days of The Birthday Party and the start of The Bad Seeds. Although short, the album is well worth the money, but as a Nick Cave fan (and not a very big Die Haut fan - though much respect to them!) be forewarned that if you go on a mad hunt to find the limited edition version of the album WITH the DVD, you will find Nick's not on it. This has been a source of some confusion amongst Cave fans who can't get their hands on the DVD, so...mystery solved! :)
