Let's state the obvious first: this is an absolute must-buy collection for anyone who appreciates what Nick Cave has done with the Bad Seeds. There's no Nick Cave solo material, the Bad Seeds are backing him on every track except Time Jesum..., which is done with the Dirty Three (featuring Warren Ellis, a Bad Seed). There are some obvious inferior tracks, who certainly deserve to be left out of the albums, but then again, some b-sides are just excellent. There are also interesting movie soundtrack songs and what not. It would've been pity the miss the acoustic versions of Deanna, The Mercy Seat and City of Refuge, originally published on a bonus 7" in 1990, as they are simply brilliant. And I can't be the only to actually prefer Blixa Bargeld over Kylie Minogue in Where the Wild Roses Grow? *****
