5 Brilliant Album / Rip Off ReissueBanderjaxion | 20/06/2011 | See all Banderjaxion's reviews (2)One of the most beautiful ballad albums ever released, dark, sardonic wit, haunting melodies, beautifuly constructed , infectious tunes. Nick Cave has never done better. If you don't own this already, the special edition is a good place to start and you should buy this. However, for those of us who already have it- the remastered edtion is a bit of a disappointmnent. The four 'additional' tracks' have already been issued elsewhere. The DVD is effectively the audio of the album in different surround sound formats plus a couple of music videos and video of a lot of 'talking heads' talking a pile of pretentious twaddle about how they gave birth listening to this album (ok , maybe not, but you get my drift). This is a superb album but it is not better than sex. If you already have this, don't waste your money.
