The Good Son

Oz NZ Vinyl transfer approval overseen by Mick Harvey Summer 2014 cut at Abbey Road studios Vinyl is heavyweight 180 gram with Download 'The Good Son' from 1990 reflected a change in both Cave's art and his life At the end of the '80s he moved to Brazil to distance himself from the drugaddled frenzy of his youth His search for peace is plainly audible in these songs which pick up where the most melodic tunes on 'Tender Prey' left off laced with piano vibraphone and choral backing vocals songs such as 'Foi Na Cruz' and 'Lucy' unveil Cave the unabashed romantic willing to go as far over the top as necessary to prove his emotional commitment to the material it is this quality that finally puts him on an even keel with the balladeers whose influence he bears so strongly Scott Walker Leonard Cohen etc Despite the lush arrangements it's not all sweetness and light pretty melodies mask untold grief on 'The Weeping Song' and 'Sorrow's Child' A nearreligious transcendence is approached on 'The Witness Song' 'The Good Son' is a strange lovely diversion in the varied career of this complex artist
