Rather than simply redoing what they'd already done, Nick Cave and company took their striking musical fusions to deeper and higher levels all around, with fantastic consequences. The album boldly starts out with an undisputed Cave masterpiece -- "The Mercy Seat," a chilling self-portrait of a prisoner about to be executed that compares the electric chair with the throne of God.
Queasy strings from a Gini Ball -led trio and Mick Harvey 's spectral piano snake through a rising roar of electric sound -- a common musical approach from many earlier Seeds songs, but never so gut-wrenching as here. Cave 's own performance Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds* - Tender Prey the perfect icing on the cake, commanding and powerful, excellently capturing the blend of crazed fear and righteousness in the lyrics. Matching that high point turns out to be impossible for anything else on Tender Preybut more than enough highlights take a bow that demonstrates the album's general quality.
The echoing, gentle-yet-rough sonics on the Blind Willie Johnson -inspired "City of Refuge" and the gentler drama of "Sugar Sugar Sugar" also do well in keeping the energy level Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds* - Tender Prey . On the quieter side, Cave indulges his penchant for gloomy piano-led ballads throughout, and quite well at that, with such songs as "Watching Alice," "Mercy," and the end-of-the-evening singalong "New Morning.
