Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe three disc (two CDs + PAL/Region 2 DVD) edition of this 2004 album from the veteran Alt-Rock singer/songwriter. Contains the remastered stereo album, a new surround mix, a specially commissioned short film by UK artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard plus the b-sides from the singles, videos and exclusive sleeve notes. Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus is a beamingly confident, expansive and ground-breaking album – all the more impressive in light of the fact that it follows in the wake of losing a key long-time band member, Blixa Bargeld. Despite being a double disc album of seventeen-song girth, it is one of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds most successful albums, achieving chart success in Australia and throughout Europe, and was certified gold status in the UK in 2006.
