Anyone a fan? I've been cruising his stuff on YouTube, anything that is a must that I should know about?

His Gladiator 2 script.

Seriously, can't say I've given him too much time. I do really enjoy the Arctic Monkey's cover of Red Right Hand though.

I only know the really obvious songs:

Red Right Hand

Deanna

Straight To You

Tupelo

The Wild Roses (iirc that's what it is called - a duet with Kylie Minogue)

All worth a look if you haven't checked them out.

I'm a huge fan of all but the last couple of albums, really. I'd recommend anything of Murder Ballads, the entire B-Sides & Rarities compilation, and the Abbatoir Blues/Lyre Of Orpheus double album, especially "There She Goes My Beautiful World", which is probably my favourite song of his.

He's never done a bad album. Start from the beginning, From Her to Eternity. If you prefer mellower, ballad-y stuff then get stuck into The Good Son and The Boatmans Call.

Never really got into the Bad Seeds, but I do like the Birthday Party if you want to get into other Nick Cave projects.

I am a huge Nick Cave fan -- mostly of his Bad Seeds stuff. If you are a Spotify user he actually put out a really neat app in 2013 that helps to make sense of his rather extensive back catalogue. It lets you listen to songs from all of his bands that Nick himself put into the categories of: Sex, Comic, Heart Break, Blasphemy, Confessional, Murder to Mayhem, Classic, Love, Spiritual and Super Dark. It even lets you add a second wheel so you can fine tune your playlist to such delightful combinations as Super Dark Heart Break, or Comic Blasphemy.

I was actually listening to the Comic setting when I saw this thread. :P

I'd back this up, although I actually quite like Dig Lazarus Dig. That's largely down to my somewhat inexplicable love for More News From Nowhere, but you know, I'm the person that likes Lana Del Rey and Cher Lloyd, so take that with a pinch of salt.
