THE GOOD SON reflected a change in both Cave's art and his life. At the end of the '80s, he moved to Brazil, to distance himself from the drug-addled frenzy of his youth. His search for peace is plainly audible in these songs, which pick up where the most melodic tunes on TENDER PREY left off. Laced with piano, vibraphone and choral backing vocals, songs such as "Foi Na Cruz" and "Lucy" unveil Cave the unabashed romantic, willing to go as far over the top as necessary to prove his emotional commitment to the material. It is this quality that finally puts him on an even keel with the balladeers whose influence he bears so strongly (Scott Walker, Leonard Cohen, etc.).
Despite the lush arrangements, it's not all sweetness and light. Pretty melodies mask untold grief on "The Weeping Song" and "Sorrow's Child". A near-religious transcendence is approached on "The Witness Song". THE GOOD SON is a strange, lovely diversion in the varied career of this complex artist.

Let Love In HERE
http://www3.hmv.co.uk/hmv/Large_Images/HMV/CDSTUMM123.JPG
LET LOVE IN is a powerful but somewhat schizophrenic effort. It alternates between frenzied tales of decadence a la TENDER PREY, and stately, Leonard Cohenesque ballad of the sort found on HENRY'S DREAM and THE GOOD SON. The one common thread, as always, is the unrelenting horror Cave takes such delight in presenting in his lyrics. From the morbid funeral setting of the gospelly "Lay Me Low" to the sexual abuse scenarios of the driving, profoundly disturbing "Do You Love Me?" LET LOVE IN is not for the timid. The album's highlight is easily the understated, subtly syncopated "Red Right Hand", a tale of a satanic figure, with appropriate horror-film backing track. LET LOVE IN itself is the audio equivalent of a particularly engrossing, ultimately unnerving horror film.
