Agree with Rune on Warren. Their guardian angel.

That scene of Warren conducting reminded me of Tom, too.

I hope Nick was wrong when he commented I think I'm losing my voice. It's what a treasure most about his music: his dark, brooding, crooning voice.

So sad to hear him describe the moment when he realized that his son's death had made him an object of pity.

Skeleton Tree

Is it any good? - without a doubt. I feel that Cave is breaking new ground.

Do I enjoy it? - not really. Too dark, too monotonous, too relentlessly sad. I haven't seen the film. Don't think I will.

Will he tour these songs? - I doubt it. Too personal. How could anyone perform these songs night after night?

Totally agree, Mika. It feels like a diary. With a beat.
I love the way they use noise all the time. Somewhere. It's either up front in your face or somewhere hidden in the background.
And the way almost every song has a hard cut-off at the end. No fancy editing. Just cut it.

But it's very dark. (Understandably so.)

Marco compared it to Bowie's Black Star. I think it's an interesting comparison regardless of which album you like or dislike the most.

Strange thing is, with the Bowie album, although it's a farewell album of sorts, and a sad one, I'm still left with the impression that Bowie makes one last wink at the audience, that the soul somehow lives on although the body's gone.

With Skeleton Tree I get the opposite feeling - Cave's body lingers on, but his soul has been, if not destroyed, at least changed forever. A farewell to what used to be Nick Cave. Almost unbearable to listen to.

I think the difference is Bowie's album is in response to something he knew was coming. I get the similar feeling you do, he is still the showman he ever was, and while the album is devastating you still can see the man in the music. I overheard some kids saying how they couldn't watch the music videos he released because they were just absolutely too creepy for them. Which I absolutely loved, even at the end he still was making music that challenged and freaked people out.

Nick Cave's album is in response to a tragedy he was absolutely unprepared for. This leads to the absolute loss of confidence
and direction we have always known Nick Cave for. The future for him is uncertain, while grim as it was, Bowie knew that his time was limited.

I think both albums are among the best things the two men have ever released, and are almost unparalleled in their documentation of raw human emotion. Absolutely harrowing listens, and are definitely my favourite albums of the year. (So much excellent music has come out this year and these two records are still head and shoulders above everything else.)

Last time (second to last time? I forget) Nick Cave toured, Melisma and I did just that, but I've since moved to NYC and apparently she's forsaken us both for someone in Pittsburgh... ;-)

Good to see he's playing at the Wang instead of the Orpheum this time around. Much nicer venue.

Good luck! I got temporarily banned from Ticketmaster last time Nick Cave tix went on sale... :lol:

PSA: Don't forget to use some of those Ticketmaster discount codes, if you got any from the class action suit this summer. Only a couple of bucks but you might as well use them. They are in your Ticketmaster account automatically if you have them. IIRC you can use two codes per purchase.

Don't take it too personally! :P Actually one of my oldest and dearest friends lives in Pittsburgh and I go there several times a year to visit her.
I considered seeing the concert in some other city that would allow me to meet up with TWFFriends, but Pittsburgh is an easy two-hour drive for me: no air travel (and its inevitable delays :roll: ) needed.
