Mine is a great, clean, flat, quiet, rich and beautiful pressing of an absolutely astonishing album. I think this may be Nick Cave's masterpiece. Great edition, great album. My album of 2019, no contest.

Makes sense as a Cave / Eliis soundtrack album but not a Bad Seeds release imo. There are few to no contributions by a number of the band, the two drummers / percussionists being the most glaringly obvious. Warren is an insanely talented individual but his influence in the Bad Seeds and over Cave's muse has been way too overpowering imo. Mick Harvey's influence as a counterpoint who would challenge Nick Cave rather than just be a yes man is sorely missed

I have only listened to a digital copy so cannot comment on pressing quality but the music is sublime, the lyrics moving. A few of the comments below had me rolling my eyes; finding it hard to believe that even regarding an album dealing with the loss of a child somebody manages to invoke anti-woke sentiment.

A little boring. Not very insightful despite the music and cover facades. It looks like an escape. While in other works Nick Cave takes on reality and its bludgeoning force, here he prefers to run. Even if he runs smoothly. That's o.k.

Ambient , boring .. No where near his best albums and there are many ... seems appropriate though for today's wimpy culture.

First disc of my copy is terrible-Scraping non-fill surface noise all the way through the first side. Awful. Will try to get another copy.

Beautiful album. Fragile and sad, a work of art in it’s purest form. I find that every track is oozing with collaboration- something that is important and precious in these times.

My copy sounded sublime first time I played it, now the parts with background vocals have static. Weird. Kept checking to see if there was cat hair on my stylus

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.
