Exactly what we love Nick Cave for
M. Packham | Perth, Western Australia Australia | 01/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's so many good moments on this album, like the slow entrance of the snare drum on 'Long Time Man' and the lapse into chorus on 'Your Funeral... My Trial'. It's a dark, brooding piece of gothic poetry full of sex, violence, humour and most of all, love. It's no wonder Nick Cave inspires such admiration and loyalty in his fans - he's supremely talented and possibly the coolest person on the face of the earth. This is one of his best releases, along with 'Let Love In'. Pick it up - it's a hard listen but it drills itself into your skull after a few listens."
One of Nick Cave's best

"This is a flawless album from start to finish. Every single track is a five star affair, the insert and photos are fantastic.... there's nothing more to say. BUY THIS ALBUM if you even remotely like Nick Cave. You won't be disappointed."
Bury this lump of crow bait!

"My title may seem to suggest that this album is a dud, but in fact it's my favorite line from "The Carny". Nick Cave is an amazing writer and musician. He creates this atmosphere of decay, where love is a ghost that his gruff bassiness paints in shades of regret. I love this album. Stranger Than Kindness never ceases to give me chills. Sad Waters is a lovely tune of adoration and Scum is a nightmare right out of the darkest slums. The Carny never ceases to capture my attention. I can see EVERY SINGLE image that Cave describes in his tale, from the abandoned carriage to the dwarves burying the dead horse (aptly named Sorrow).

I hate having to explain my ratings, but for some reason I just can't give this 5 stars. For as great as Your Funeral, My Trial is, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have much better work out there.

Not recommended as a pick-me-up album. If you're in a lonesome mood and need some ballads of desperation, turn down the lights and stick this in. Cave will possess you, as he somehow does with many other examples of his work."
