I keep returning to this album as my favorite.
Raed
The song wasn't what I expected, but it was still good; however, I did find the other pieces on the album to be great.

It's a dark, brooding piece of gothic poetry full of sex, violence, humour and most of all, love.

Without a doubt this is one of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds's most original albums. True, it's far from Cave's most accessible, but it's certainly one of a kind. Lugubrious, drunken phantasmagoria at its finest. Fraught with danger & eerie intensity.

Cave's delivery is debauched to say the least. As if he's about to nod off on the edge of an abyss. At other times, howling at the bottom of an empty well. Throughout, the Bad Seeds create an atmosphere of slow burning tension that on more than one occasion lives up to threat and erupts with a vengeance. Overall it's a narcotic pull into the maelstrom.

As for this long overdue reissue series of Cave's 1st 4 albums, it's nice to finally hear Your Funeral in its originally intended sequence. (might add the initial vinyl was released as a double EP).

At the time, anything resembling a traditional ballad was a rare commodity on a Bad Seeds record. Kicking off an album with such a haunting, dreamlike song may have thrown some fans for a loop. "Sad Waters" is quite simply one of the finest ballads Cave has ever penned. As dreamlike as it is, there's never been anything quite like what follows.

All reverie suddenly turns to nightmare. "The Carney" is ramshackle dose of gothic rain & bad directions. Think Kurt Weill meets Todd Browning's "Freaks". As a writer, Cave is on top of his game with this tale of a broken down circus and the burial of a horse known as "Sorrow". It's the album's signature track and a Cave classic. They've never recorded anything like it.

For somber, after hours delirium, it's hard to top the title track & "Stranger Than Kindness". Two songs that would be at home in any David Lynch soundtrack.

Not Nick Cave's best overall album, but certainly a very good one indeed. The title track puts things in the right context, followed quickly by Stranger Than Kindness (a very rare non-cover cut that Cave didn't co-write.) Next up is The Carny, still one of Cave's most endearing songs. The pseudo-carnival music backing is the perfect backdrop for Cave's psychotic carnival-horror lyrics, that remind me a bit of books like Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Hard On For Love is... not a ballad, but, more accurately, a perverse confession of lust, made likable by Cave's over-the-top vocal performance. The highlight of the album however, most would argue, is Sad Waters. Perhaps Cave's first truly strong ballad, this is still considered one of his best songs to this day. A very strong cover of Tim Rose's Long Time Man is handled deftly by Cave and The Seeds, and it's lyrics of spousal murder coupled with their totally commanding performance will leave you finding it hard to believe that they didn't write the piece in the first place. For all intents and purposes, this is the last song on the album. Following it is Scum, a semi-hilarous non-song that will appeal to those who appreciate Cave's sense of humor. This set is, in many ways, the step between Cave's first handful of albums and what many consider to be his masterpiece, Tender Prey. Thus, it is an excellent album, and must be purchased for this reason.

There's so many good moments on this album, like the slow entrance of the snare drum on 'Long Time Man' and the lapse into chorus on 'Your Funeral... My Trial'. It's a dark, brooding piece of gothic poetry full of sex, violence, humour and most of all, love. It's no wonder Nick Cave inspires such admiration and loyalty in his fans - he's supremely talented and possibly the coolest person on the face of the earth.
This is one of his best releases, along with 'Let Love In'. Pick it up - it's a hard listen but it drills itself into your skull after a few listens.

Like some of the other reviewers on this page, this is not my favourite Cave album. On the first listen I didn't like it much, but since then I've found I keep on returning to it. It really does get under my skin. Its all very very dark, and the opening songs, 'Your Funeral...' and 'Stranger than Kindness' are brilliant, but horrible and twisted tales. 'Jack's Shadow' and 'Hard on for Love' are upbeat, but violent numbers. Then there's 'The Carny', the almost spoken word tale of a dead horse accompanied by fairground music from Hell! This album also contains what I think is Cave's first truly beautiful love song, 'Sad Waters'. The final "song" 'Scum' is a suitable ending to a dark angry album. This might also be Cave's most misogynist album. There seems to be a virgin and whore dynamic at work in Nick's attitude to women. It doesn't detract from the quality of the music, but its a word of warning to those of a feminist perssuasion. Definitely chilling, one I listen to when I'm in a unfriendly mood.

This is a flawless album from start to finish. Every single track is a five star affair, the insert and photos are fantastic.... there's nothing more to say. BUY THIS ALBUM if you even remotely like Nick Cave. You won't be disappointed.

Some artists are good enough that to label one work as their best says more than a lot. Nick Cave is by all means one of them. And 'Your Funeral...My Trial' is that golden release. Beginning with the slow title cut, it moves it's way through track after track, sometimes menacing, sometimes violent, sometimes beautiful, and always thought provoking and dark. Highlights? Honestly, all of them. Warning, this album is Nick's least accesable and that says a lot too. But after a few good listens, it works it's way into your brain and it's the best thing since ever- I promise.
