    How’s everybody else feeling about the new album?
    Another absolute stunner! Nick is on quite a roll musically since "Push the Sky Away". I hope we get to see him with the Bad Seeds in the sort of near future. Last concert I saw before the shit hit the fan was Red Hand Files in Seattle, November 2019. Had tickets for the cancelled tour. I've got a feeling that Trent & Atticus will be enjoying "Carnage".

    The Bad Seeds died after Murder Ballads.....Everything since has just been mostly piano ballad albums with the occasional one off conventional rock record (Dig Lazarus Dig).....Everything Nick touched from 1980-1996 was fucking perfection but man I just am tired of these ballad albums. I wish he would do something back in the blues genre. Bring back the raucous Bad Seeds sound

    I could not disagree with this more. I feel like I have the exact opposite feeling. I've enjoyed everything he's put out, but I love the sound of Abattoir Blues, and anything that's in that direction atmospherically is a big hit with me.

    abattoir / lyre is one of my fav bad seeds albums but i haven't liked anything they've done since then. it was also their best album SINCE murder ballads.

    Same. I haven't liked anything since 2004. I appreciate the fact that the more recent albums branch out and explore, but they just don't do anything for me.

    *Bump*

    This thread hasn't been touched in a while.

    I jut wanted to mention the "new" song for the B-Sides & Rarities Part 2, is beautiful (i think it's a Grinderman B Side actually) and a welcome reminder of the older style before the "Push the Sky Away" trilogy...

    Nick had a nice tribute to Charlie Watts in the latest Red Hand Files.

    Nick said it's from 2006, probably from shortly before they formed Grinderman. Which you can hear imo, as it's not as rough as the Grinderman material...

    Yes, it sound more like an "Abbatoir Blues" track, although Grinderman had some "mellow tracks" like "Man in the Moon", "Chain of Flowers" or "Palaces of Montezuma", so i could see the song being on both bands with no issue, but it does sound more like a Bad Seeds track.

    So far, so good, love the early versions of the Skeleton Tree tracks and i'm happy he finally released "Animal X" and "Give us a Kiss".

    A bunch of Grinderman unreleased tracks leaked awhile back and a lot of them were mellow songs. Probably were from the early writing sessions since they pick up where Abbatoir Blues left off and Nick was still in balladeer mode
