It's a heartbreakingly beautiful album, raw and hard hitting, and even without the recent tragedy, the album would have been just as poignant. While I tried very hard not to think about what Nick and has family have been through it's hard not to when some of the lyrics seem to just describe such deep, dark feelings...
I wasn't able to see the documentary released on the same day as the album but really hope that at some point it will be released on DVD.
The CD comes in a sleeve (no plastic case), and the design is pretty stark and simple. It's perfect.
Even if you aren't a hardcore Nick Cave fan like me and you are just looking to get into his music, you won't be disappointed with the beauty of Skeleton Tree.

The vinyl pressing unfortunately is trash. I've gone through 2 replacements, and each on skips in the same points on the album.
It's a shame.
