What album did you hear first?

  • What album did you hear first?

    My introduction to Nick Cave was Straight To You from Henry's Dream, but Let Love In was the first album i heard, and the first album i bought.

    How about you people? When were you introduced to Cave, and what album was the one you heard first?

    Shall we take ourselves seriously? Nah.

    The First song I heard was "Up Jumped the Devil" and I bought "Tender Prey" that very same day. "Tender Prey" had just been released. I've loved Mr Cave's albums ever since.

    I know I must remain inside this silent well of sorrow
  • "The Carny" was the first song I heard. it was on "Wings of Desire" and about a week later I bought "Your Funeral...My Trial". Love it!

    Bis zum Kollaps!

    No more shall we part.

    It's still a great album. Only I'm now listening more to his B-sides album

    I was about 10 years old when I found the Love Songs compilation in my parents' collection, and heard Where the Wild Roses Grow. I liked it even then, I guess it was the smoothness and the melody. I didn't understand the lyrics, of course...

    Years later I found out about those lyrics, and was hooked for good. So I borrowed No More Shall We Part from the library. Obviously, it was different, but I loved it nevertheless.

  • Henry's Dream... As a result, still one of my favourites. John Finn's Wife, Straight to You, Papa won't leave you Henry... really good stuff. I bought it after hearing Sir Nick live on the radio at Norwich Sound City (1992ish) while I was waiting for Carter USM to come on. While next day at school al my friends were talking about Carter and bemoaning the support act, I became a convert!

  • The first song I heard was "Loverman", and the first album I bought was "Murder Ballads".

    Me too. But I bought also "From Her To Eternity". And then "Murder Ballads" (because it was the 1996)

    Oddly enough, I first discovered Cave through The Birthday Party (I imagine it's usually the other way around). Then I bought 'Let Love In' and haven't looked back since...

    First born is dead



    what have the Romans ever done for us?
  • Murder Ballads, I guess. First song I heard was when I downloaded "Where the Wild Roses Go". I deleted it quickly.


    (I was a lot younger then)

    I kept hearing how great he was and decided to give it another go, grabbing a few more tracks this time. Now I'm obsessed with them all.

  • I was ten or so and Where The Wild Roses Grow was featured a lot on MTV, that was my first contact with him. I liked the song a lot but unfortunately I lost track of Nick until 00s when No More Shall We Part was released, which was the first album I bought. A bit later on I got into The Birthday Party as well which are extremely good and unique band in the postpunk scene.

    It was "Murder Ballads", but what really got me into it was "The Boatman's Call". Then I started pulling the thread and discovering all the beautiful/brutal sounds of Nick Cave.

  • tender prey in 1990. i then worked backwards and have bought every album he's released since.


  • Oh, it was No more Shall We Part (the very album!)
    Then I heard Tender Prey and start borrowing the albums from my friends.


    One tomorrow for me, please...
  • borrowing eh?

    i'd be coming round to your house for the rest of my money if i was cave

    "Where the Wild Roses Grow" was the first song I heard (we were analyzing the song in English class), and I rather liked it. However, I didn't really get into the Bad Seeds' music until 5 months later when I watched the "Videos" dvd at a friend's place. So, I went out and bought the dvd, and also picked up the "Henry's Dream" album. And the rest is history, I guess :P

  • First I listened Where the wild roses grow and Red Right Hand, and became my obsession for the following weeks, or months, but I didn't search for the whole albums (i don't know why). Then I stole an album from my brother called Tender Prey. And since that moment I love them. ^^

  • I bought that best of album that came out, what, like ten years ago now? Wow. I'm not even sure why I bought it - I was pretty much strictly into musical theatre at the time - but it was pretty life-changing, or at least helped me expand my musical horizons.

    But Murder Ballads was probably the first proper album I heard. But I didn't actually buy a proper album until Nocturama came out; I was unimpressed and thought, "Well, I guess all their great music is in the past." Glad I've been proved wrong since then!
