Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus

by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

This double album set comes in a cute canvas-bound slipcase, with CDs in cardboard sleeves and a lyrics booklet — a lot of lyrics in these songs, you know. Top quality lyrics too. I love every song here. Especially Get Ready for Love, Hiding All Away and The Lyre of Orpheus.
The well went down very deep
Very deep went down the well
The well went down so very deep
Well, the well went down to hell
Ah, brilliant. Who else could have thought of rhyming Orpheus with orifice?
