If you have not seen this DVD, it must be restated that Cave and his bandmates admit from the very start that they do not like doing videos. So, if you presumably already have these songs on CD and many of the reviews lean toward the negative, why own this? Well, in my view, The Videos is a great collection precisely because it is so primitive and often silly. I don't like all the songs and would rather that others had taken the place of those I don't like, hence the four stars. But overall, this is a video that any Nick Cave fan should be eager to own because actually watching Cave perform adds so much more to the songs.

The following are my favorites:

1) Staggerlee---Cave in his most menacing stance. The dancing is so silly you may roll on the floor laughing.

2) Where the Wild Roses Grow---Manichean juxtapositions. Cave and Minogue play their roles to the hilt. And then there's that snake...

3) Into My Arms---The imagery is what gets you. Very stark.

4) Henry Lee---The video does not really fit the words, but you can feel the sexual tension generated by PJ Harvey and Cave.

5) Red Right Hand---Always a great song, sinister as Cave can make it.

6) Do You Love Me---Actually, I couldn't care less about the bozos he filmed in a Brazilian dive, but the performance is urgent and bursting with Cave's energy.

7) Jack the Ripper---Full of blood, brings the lyrics to hideous life.

8) Mercy Seat---Somewhat weak, but Cave looks the part of a loser who is about to be fried. Could have been a lot more graphic, but still a great song.

Not much to say about this release. Fans of Cave have long been living off decaying VHS copies that they had either taped The Bad Seeds vids onto, or from the old original release. Thank goodness we now have them on DVD, including some extremely hard to find ones. What's cool is that nearly every video is introduced by a snippet sound byte from the band. The down side is only Nick (and sometimes guitarist Blixa) discuss the songs and videos, but their kept extremely short. About one or two sentences regarding the shooting of the video's, then they show them. Also, the majority of the introductions are basically variations on how much they disliked shooting video's.
The only other complaint I have is that video's from the two last albums are not present. Of course, 'No More Shall we Part's promo's can be seen on the 'God Is In The House' concert disc, so that's not a big loss. However, it would have been nice if they had included the vid for 'Bring it On', which has never had an official DVD presentation.
Still, they are the video's, and their finally on DVD. That alone warrants this DVD a 4 star rating.

Format: DVD
At the beginning of the dvd, Cave admits that he and the band do not like doing videos. And this shows, but with wacky mixed results. On the high (in a down and dirty way) end, "Stagger Lee," which is the opening video, is funny, profane, and tongue in cheek. It also rocks. "Into My Arms," is spare and beautiful, its black and whites stark as if filmed by Bergman. On the lush end, with first class production values, is "Where the Wild Roses Grow," a beautiful and disturbing duet acted out on the river bank with singer Kylie Minogue (and an ever present snake). Cave's voice is a remarkably strong instrument -especially when it comes to dark stuff.

After that, there seems to be a large middle ground, with a number of videos admittedly done on the fly. Particularly good is "Henry Lee,"a one take effort by Cave and P.J. Harvey. She's got a terrific voice, and obviously these two were hot for each other at one time. It also helps that the song is a good one. Another duet, with Pogue front man, Shane McGowan, is kind of sad. Cave is in great voice, but McGowan is a burned out case, and it shows. "The Weeping Song" is bizarre and cheap with its choppy plastic water and Zorba dancing, but also fun. "Mercy Seat" is a surprising failure. You'll like the version done on "God is in the House" much better (as is the case with a number of the songs shown on both dvds). At the absolute bottom is "In the Ghetto," which has to be one of the worst videos ever made. The camera slips in out of focus, and Cave admits that at that time in his career, it was a mistake to send him the money for such efforts, since he usually would spend it on "other things." (He must of gave some of those "other things" to the guy with the camera.

Format: DVD
I love Nick Cave and his musical stylings and these videos are the best way to experience it beyond watching them live. Some of the videos here are better than others. Stagger Lee is great, campy fun, Red Right Hand is ominous and strangely creepy, while Henry Lee finds Cave and his former lover PJ Harvey giving themselves up to a one-take of visible passion and tension. Loverman (later covered by Metallica), is a loud hypnotic ride (literally) as the band gets filmed being put into a trance by a professional hypnotist.

Other stand out videos include the behind the scenes road trip piece, Wanted Man, the live, I Had A Dream Joe and the beginning of the Mercy Seat shot in stark black and white. The rest are underbudgeted yet still worthy of a look.
