Product Description

Product Description

Assured of his place in musical history as frontman of Screaming Trees, vocalist for Queens of the Stone Age and as a critically acclaimed solo singer/songwriter, Mark Lanegan hinted at the brilliance of Bubblegum with last year's teaser EP, "Here Comes That Weird Chill (Methamphetamine Blues, Extras, and Oddities)". Musical assistance on 'Bubblegum' comes from luminaries including Queens Of The Stone Age bandmates Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri, PJ Harvey (who provides vocals on "Hit The City" and "Come To Me"), Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan from Guns 'N' Roses/Velvet Revolver, Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers' Greg Dulli, Ween's Dean Ween, Eleven's Alain Johannes and Masters of Reality's Chris Goss (guitar) among others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark and Dense Brand of Bubblegum 4 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lanegan is a man of many "phases." As a matter of fact, you may be reading this review either because of his work with Screaming Tress, his haunting and stripped down Americana solo output, or his recent singing contributions to Queens Of The Stone Age, have interested you enough to see what our boy is up to here.
The good news here is that Lanegan, rather than "returning" or "departing" from what you may be used to, has brought all of it together into a an intense boil, and come out of it with a powerful collection of songs that will offer immediate, if different, favorites for everyone.
In addition to this, the list of musicians called on to help his efforts is quite impressive and likely to make you salivate, even before the album starts playing. Whether it is PJ Harvey, Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers' mastermind Greg Dulli, or Josh Homme -from QOFTA- to name only the ones I was most excited about and intrigued by for what they may add to this album, their contributions are a major plus to "Bubblegum'"s sound.
Speaking of "bubblegum" -a reference from a line in the song "Bombed"-Lanegan could not sound farther from what that word may make you expect. Actually, he sounds closer to Tom Waits than ever before, a similar tone yet not ever trying to imitate Tom, and he phrases his words in ways that remind me -at least me- of the dark sensuality of Jim Morrison.
The reference to Morrison may be more apparent on "When Your Number Isn't Up," and ominous and prophetic slow tune about mortality, or "Wedding Dress," as dark a "love song" as you can expect.
As far as Lanegan ability to bring into a single album everything he's explored musically in the past, I'd like to name some of the remaining tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A voice that has obviously lived a bit! 15 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Mark Lanegan is a survivor from the grunge scene and can't you just tell? Many from that era have succumbed to drugs or the corporate dollar. Mark has lived through it and tells the tale in a voice that would shame the devil. Deep, dark and glorious. Its amazing how much soul can be derived from someone who admits to being souless.
A really fine album from one of rocks underated greats

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music!!!! 17 April 2006
By max
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after getting really into qoftsa hoping to here some of the same type of music on here but qoftsa its not. I was not expecting a great deal from the album itself but what a shock i got. This has to be the greatest album of 2004 easily. This is one of those albums were its goals are set high with loads of collabirations(Duff Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Nick Olivera, Josh Homme, PJ Harvey etc) it really wants to be one of thoses really great albums. There is not a set style to the music ranging from acoustic ballads, industrial, heavy rock, country and every single one works. Mark Lanegans voice is just one of the best voices you have ever heard as im sure you have heard. Not a bad song on the album but for me my favourites are Hit the city with its great drum and bass grove and PJ Harvey lending some vocals,Methamphetamine Blues is the heaviest on the album i think it just has a filthy stomp to it loads of lead guitar going on and one of the best bass lines i have heard, Sideways in reverse was the 1st single from the album and is probably a good introduction just straight to the point rock and roll with some great guitar and drums theres apart when the solo speeds up then theres a pounding of the drums and the solo just goes all messed up great music, Come to me has some brilliant guitar licks by Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan and PJ Harvey sing together great its a really dark song in which the album has a few of, like little willie john is just a great country song sang amazingly by Lanegan one of the many highlights, Head another great song opens up with this great anthem of a riff and again is another highlight,Driving Death Valley Blues just has qoftsa all over it just imagine go with the flow with lanegan vocals and thats what you have hear really great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Genius 30 Sep 2004
By Only Me
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hmmm..I have never committed my written opinions to anywhere on the web, but this album is simply magnificent. There is perhaps only one weak song.Can't Come Down. Every other track is a work of smouldering genius. The greatest release in 2004 (of the decade?. Nothing, nothing comes close.
If you like your music intelligent (Bombed), passionate (Come to Me), heartfelt (Like Little Willie John), honest (Wedding Dress)and (slightly) dark (When Your Number Isn't Up) this is for you.
I didn't think Songs for the Deaf or Field Songs could be topped. This makes them look ordinary.
Buy It.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lanegan Beats The Devil ... 16 Jan 2007
By J.
Format:Audio CD
For just over 20 years Mark Lanegan has been an ambassador for `alternative' music in America: as the frontman for the undervalued Screaming Trees, Greg Dulli co-conspirator, Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator, and solo artist (not to mention many other guest appearances).

There's no doubt that that Lanegan's stint in the `Desert Rock' outfit Queens Of The Stone Age has brought a fresh interest to his work, and it would appear that the band has maybe given him the hunger to once again bring his own brand of alternative rock to the music buying public.

`Bubblegum' is Mark Lanegan's sixth solo album, and the first credited to the `Mark Lanegan Band' -- which Lanegan himself attributes to the absence of the ever-present Mike Johnson (who featured prominently on his earlier `low-key' solo releases) -- and is quite a departure from his previous solo work.

Although the subtlety of his last few records is not absent, it is fair to say that `Bubblegum' is a cohesive collection of the singer's musical persona. It is his most rock orientated set since Screaming Trees' Dust, while being as devastatingly honest as `Scraps At Midnight'. In fact, this is quite unlike any other rock album. A remarkable achievement.

It's unpredictable, desolate yet hopeful, beautiful and redemptive.

`Bubblegum' is, in every sense, a staggering record.
