Even though the kids are older, I may still just buy this – lullaby versions of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds classics – and a good selection as well. The idea of a lullaby version the of the Mercy Seat is intriguing.

Folks, this compilation is a wonder and a delight. With its high-quality instrumentation, this album ain’t just for babies. Immediate favorites: “Straight to You”, “Are You The One That I’ve Been Waiting For”, and the ethereal “Push The Sky Away”. The most surprising inclusion is the gently sonorous, “Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!”. Wonderful stuff.
Appropriate for listening at work, on your way to class, while meditating, preparing dinner, to clear your mind after an über krap day, or any time you want to bring a little sunshine into your head. When I go to bed tonight, my ear buds will be twinkling with Lullaby Versions of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
