Although they're obviously different groups, I generally think that The Birthday Party did everything Cave tried to do on early Bad Seeds albums much better, with more humor and more creativity. And yeah, the later Bad Seeds albums do sound better but I just think the material is much better (with far more depth) as well. I agree with the general consensus that "Tender Prey" is probably the best early Bad Seeds album but IMO the later stuff and The Birthday Party still make it redundant. As for "The Good Son", I just find it cheesy and think the material is far weaker than it is on the later singer/songwritery albums like "Nor More Shall We Part" and "The Boatman's Call".
