Watching it, and listening now, I'm still blown away at the production as much as the performance. They must have spent endless hours, selecting and positioning mic's for the piano, and one to capture his voice. The piano was doubtless strung and tuned by a master of the craft just for this performance. All of that thoughtfulness and work pays off. This album will always sound as if it's happening right in front of you, which is kind of magical.
It's perfect. Even when Nick hits a wrong note and chuckles, it's perfect.

It veers between haunting self discovery, sadness, unrequited / required love, tragedy and loss. Cave is front and centre, heart on sleeve, pouring every ounce of passion he has in to this solo performance and much like the man himself, there is not an gram of fat or wasted effort. This is a thing of beauty, a challenge to himself accepted and met. It is restrained and powerful all at once and as mesmerising as an audio recording, as it was a televised performance.
Fans of Mr Cave will not be disappointed, but any lover of intelligent, emotional music will find much to admire here. Cave holds a mirror up to those times in all our lives when, in all honesty, we would prefer to look away. But he shows us the beauty in redemptive love, the importance of facing loss and occasionally a flash of brimstone from the past. The Bard of Brighton has rarely sung or played better and the lone piano accompaniment only serves to highlight the brilliance of the lyrics that still flow from his pen.
No resting on his laurels and pumping out a “best of” album here, to fill out the boredom of these socially isolated days. This is daring and wonderful and a testament to the power of the music produced by Nick and his fellow Bad Seeds.
So put the lights on low, pour out a glass of something suitable and turn up the speakers just slightly louder than you might think is strictly necessary and let the music wash over you. This is an excellent slice of Cave.
