Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! A Review

DIG, LAZARUS, DIG!!!

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Mute Records

OK, I’m a little slow. This album was actually released last month, it takes me a while to catch up. I’m glad I caught up with this one, it’s a little masterpiece.

Did I say, “little masterpiece”? Yes, I did.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have been around a spell. Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is their 14th studio album and it finds the 51-year-old Cave in top form. All of the best elements of The Seeds’ previous work are present without the the worst of their tendencies. Is it the new porn star mustache Nick is sporting? Maturity? I hate to admit it, but I think it is. Not the moustache, cool as it may be, but the maturity.

I won’t bore you with details, just trust me on this one… Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is the frontrunner for best of ’08.

    The forerunner, eh? I have heard that this is a really amazing album and cannot wait to hear it!
    Satan’s very own personal lounge singer is in top form…again!
