✨ #VinylBookChallenge day 12: Les Miserables - Album That Makes You Sad✨ „Skeleton Tree“ by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds is by far the most heartbreaking album I know of. During the sessions, Nick‘s 15 year old son died in a tragic accident, and every pore of this masterpiece is filled with the existential pain and despair that comes with such an unbearable loss. It’s grief turned into music. I honestly can’t imagine how much it must have taken for him to record songs like „I Need You“ - „Nothing really matters anymore, not even today, no matter how hard I try“ - and the „just breathe, just breathe“ part hit so deep, you can feel the unbelievable pain he went through. Or in „Distant Sky“ - „They told us our gods would outlive us/ They told us our dreams would outlive us/But They Lied“. The album closes with the wistful „Skeleton Tree“ - „nothing is for free“. But in the end, he tells himself that „it‘s alright now“. His last album, „Ghosteen“ (brillant as well), also deals with his loss. But the underlying mood on that one is a bit different, it’s more about letting-go and reminiscing. And of course, the book is a must-read as well (I also like the movie adaptation with Depardieu a lot). I love the whole era of the romantic, may it be in literature or in music, like Schubert or Schumann. As always, thanks to @puttherecordon & @deepindigo114_vinyl for this challenge!
