A journey into darkness with Nick Cave

Nick Cave leaves no psychological stone unturned on his most recent album “Push the Sky Away,” released Tuesday Feb. 19. The 15th studio album by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released by the band’s own label, Bad Seed Ltd., is a self examination set to heavy tones and a steady pace over nine tracks. If this album were a novel, it would contain footnotes and a map.

“Push the Sky Away,” is at times unnervingly personal as it exposes the psychology of Nick Cave. His brooding style was challenging at first because it made this unfiltered portrait seem like a caricature. Sure, the album is overly elaborate and theatrical, but Cave covers broad and colorful territory delivered through his unique sense of storytelling. Cave even refers to Miley Cyrus and the Large Hadron Collider.
