Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Ghosteen review – his most beautiful songsFirst impressions are that it picks up straight where 'Skeleton Tree' left off and, my goodness, it's beautiful.
Most listeners seemed to take Skeleton Tree as an extended treatise on grief, ignoring Cave’s insistence that the songs predated the loss they were presumed to be about. In fairness, you could see why, given how bleak and disturbing it sounded. But if Ghosteen is the album people supposed its predecessor to be, it sounds like nothing like you might expect of an album informed by tragedy.
