New Nick Cave tries to Push the Sky Away

New Nick Cave albumPush the Sky Away, this week.
Apart from the nice title, good cover, and possibly some good moments, the man seems to lack clarity and energy: feeling old?; tired?
Bad Seeds in fine form.
Spinner says: sounds like Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits.
First comparison not even in Nick’s wildest dreams: inappropriate and wrong.
Second one works better: two musicians doing their job professionally. They may be somewhat short of inspiration these days, but still enjoy credibility gained in the past, and, well, are professional.
Must-read review from the always impeccable AD (link).
