PUSH THE SKY AWAY
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
(Liberation/Universal)

Three decades and 15 albums in, it would seem time to release an album with a naked woman on the front packed with drifting banality.

Not Mr Cave and his trusty band of Bad Seeds. Yes, he's finally put that naked woman on the front... but you don't feel the poor uncovered lass is at all safe in Cave's company.

Acting as the antidote to Grinderman's raucous irrelevancy, Push the Sky Away sees Cave's stunningly crafted tunes harness airy intimidation and pulsating pictures of depravity.

There's plenty of sex and death ... and religion. And a blues dedicated to science's Higgs Boson "God Particle".

And typically melodious tunes harbouring malodorous intent.
