Can this expand to albums?

If so...

Nick Cave - Murder Ballads

An okay album, but average compared to many more of his albums.

There's no way it's worse than Nancy, Let Your Hair Down For Me or Nightingales.

What albums are they on? I only have Swoon, Steve McQueen, Jordan: The Comeback and Andromeda Heights.

They're both from From Langely Park To Memphis (which also has The King Of Rock & Roll). The other seven cuts on the album are fab.

Totally disagree. That's one of my favorite Nick Cave albums.

Lemonheads - Mrs Robinson

Their cover of Simon & Garfunkel's Mrs Robinson was their biggest hit and is the song which most people will remember them by. Quite frankly i think it is the worst thing they've ever put to tape. Even Evan Dando thinks its the worst thing they've ever recorded. Why remember them by this song rather than gems like It's A Shame About Ray, Confetti, My Drug Buddy, The Great Big No or Rudy With A Flashlight?

Get it anyway. At times, I actually prefer it to Steve McQueen. The Venus Of The Soup Kitchen is one of the most moving songs I've heard (give it time to grow on you, though; I hated it the first two dozen times out). Plus, it has Cars & Girls, which is one of the best singles by anybody.

Yeah its good... But there are many more Cave albums which I prefer...
Your Funeral... My Trial
Tender Prey
Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus
The Boatman's Call
From Her To Eternity
Let Love In

Are all better and there are a few others that are equal with MB, and Murder Ballads doesn't really justify its acclaim and popularity as a Cave album in comparison to these.

I guess we just have to agree to disagree. Like I said, it's one of my favorites of his, the only one I might rate higher is Let Love In. Though I admit I've never listened to Your Funeral... My Trial or From Her To Eternity.
