Synopsis by Mark Deming
After leaving the brutal and influential Australian post-punk band the Birthday Party in 1983, Nick Cave went on to a truly unique solo career, which found him tapping into the influences of blues, country, folk, and cabaret music as well as rock & roll as he conjured up sonic backdrops for his tales of sin, excess, and a desperate search for redemption. Cave's visual interpretations of his songs are often as powerful and inventive as the records themselves, and this compilation features music videos for 20 of his best-known tunes. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: The Videos includes the songs "Into My Arms," "Do You Love Me?," "Henry Lee" (with PJ Harvey), "Straight to You," "Where the Wild Roses Grow" (with Kylie Minogue), "The Weeping Song," "In the Ghetto," "What a Wonderful World" (with Shane MacGowan), and many more.
