Really phenomenal recording and pressing; nice to hear the record company get it right. A harrowing journey into loss, with Cave's voice stripped of ego and sounding exhausted.

it's good idea to combine tracks in one cd. But, between two parts, there should be a track with 60-//-600 seconds of silence, of course

Great sounding pressing. Only issue with mine was that the is a nasty looking scratch straight through the entire first song but somehow it isn't audible. It seems I'm in the minority but that may be one of my favorite Nick releases. For those who dislike it i expect you'll be more content with the next grinderman album.

I think this is musically interesting -even if its hard to hear what, if anything, Thomas Wydler did on these sessions, and not much from Martyn Casey either - but lyrically.... I don't know. I have heard much about how soaringly poetic it all is but I honestly can't hear the poetry. The lyrics seem among the least interesting to me that Mr C has ever penned. Heartfelt no doubt, but I don't find them moving. Sorry

So, so nice to see a release with poly-lined, printed innersleeves—the best of both worlds!

Push The Sky Away was a kind of a renew in Nick Cave's music work.
Then, the loss...
Skeleton Trees, times of pain, now Ghosteen, times of mourning, if possible...
Beautiful album...

Sounds outstanding. Beautiful printing quality on the cover art, vibrant colors. Quiet pressing.
