The Good Son is the sixth studio album by Australian rock band Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, originally released in April 1990 via Mute Records.

The Seeds followed up Tender Prey with the equally brilliant but generally calmer Good Son. At the time of its release there were more than a few comments that Cave had somehow softened or sold out, given how he was more intent on exploring his dark, cabaret pop stylings than his thrashy, explosive side. This not only ignored the constant examples of such quieter material all the way back to From Her To Eternity, but Cave's own constant threads of lyrical darkness, whether in terms of romance or something all the more distressing.

The softly crooning group vocals and sweet strings on the opening "Foi Na Cruz" however certainly would catch some off guard. The title track itself captured the overall mood of the album, a retelling of the Bible's prodigal son story from the other son, the one who stayed at home and did what he was meant to do.

The elegant, reflective "Lucy" and the staccato then sweeping "Lament" are two further high points, but the flat-out winners come dead center. "The Weeping Song", a magnificent duet between Cave and guitarist Blixa Bargeld, starts out sounding a bit like Gene Pitney's "Something's Gotta Hold Of My Heart," which the Seeds covered on Pricks, before shading into its own powerful, blasted drama. "The Ship Song", meanwhile, is inspired by, a soaring, tearjerking declaration of intense love that's simply amazing.

The Good Son is one of Cave’s most touching and amazing albums.

Check out the tracks: “The Ship Song”; and “The Weeping Song”.

This LP was pressed in Europe with Remastered Audio on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl, reproduced artwork and digital download.
