-Cave is one of those very few artists who have never made an album where at the end I say, "Well, that was an utter waste of 45 minutes."
-That said, DIG LAZARUS was the most boring Bad Seeds album. This must be an improvement.
-This'll be the first post-Mick Harvey album, right?
-If the tunes suck, I look forward to the lyrics. Or vice versa. Or I look forward to hearing how Cave's voice currently sounds. There's always something worth hanging onto on a Bad Seeds album.
-And, of course, I'm looking forward to a tour.
