947. Nick Cave - Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!

I remember seeing an interview with Nick Cave in the early nineties where he said something like "I am an authority on melancholy" or something like that, but when I checked him out the music wasn't what I was expecting... then he started dating PJ Harvey, my PJ! So he became an enemy - thankfully that ended - fast forward to last year when this came out there was something that just told me 'you have to get this'. I'm glad I did - sure at times Nick does his lounge singer thing, but never in a mocking manner - it is heartfelt, dirty and pure stream of consciousness - he makes Springsteen sound like a guy covering Springsteen.
