I first heard this album ten years ago, and it has lost nothing in the intervening years.
If I was allowed only one album for the rest of time, then this would probably be it. When this tape goes into the car stereo, it stays there for weeks before I finally change the selection.
The album starts out strong and simply gets stronger, leaving you wanting to flip it and start over again.
To my mind, the album confirms Matt Johnson as one of the finest lyricists and song writers of our time. Long may the ink keep flowing from his pen.

It was sheer relief to fans of The The in 1993 when Dusk was released, following their disappointingly stodgy and overproduced 'Mind Bomb' from 1989. Matt Johnson and Johnny Marr finally make their partnership come to full musical fruition on this sublime album which caters for an entire range of moods.
Standout tracks include the well-chosen singles Dogs of Lust, Love Is Stronger Than Death and of course the brilliant Slow Emotion Replay, The The's best piece of work since 'Heartland' in 1986, which has Marr's influence written all over it. Johnson also succeeds in making the closing track 'Lonely Planet' perhaps the only 'eco-song' in history a non-pretencious affair. Their is even a bit of funk here in the form of excellent 'Sodium Light Baby', which goes to show that the ever-despairing Johnson was actually enjoying himself whilst making this superb album.

Back then in 1993, when "Dusk" was released, what striked first was that it sounded a lot less over-produced than the previous two The The LP's (1986's melodramatic yet exciting "Infected" and 1989's "Mind Bomb" full-scale apocalyptic soundscape); here we get at the core of this man's mind ("True Happiness This Way Lies"), heart ("This Is The Night"), body ("Dogs Of Lust") and soul ("Bluer Than Midnight"). Another highlight is the harmonica-led (a part courtesy of ex-Smiths and The The guitarist at that time, Johnny Marr) "Slow Emotion Replay", which should have been a n°1 hit then.

Even though it might not be, on first hearing, as sonically appealing as previous offerings, "Dusk" wears the kind of attracting growth every truly great record has: once it's stuck in your mind, you'll never get rid of it. For the good, and the bad...

Since then, The The's only crucial releases have been a Hank Williams tribute (1995's worthy "Hanky Panky") and a last original studio album, released through Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor label, Nothing (2000's "Naked Self", very good but not for shy ears...). Matt, if by chance you read those lines, please, come back; you miss us a lot. We urgely need another "Soul Mining" (The The's official 1983 debut) for our sour times...

After the recent release of the superb Naked Self, its good to go back and hear some of the old stuff. The new remaster gives a soulful album the clarity and crispness it deserves after all these years. The songs are still as good as ever, certainly a more commercial offering from Mr Johnson, but certainly never dull.

A brilliant record seeing Johnson reach a maturity in his lyric writing, voice and general sound. Intensely personal yet not indulgent not only because of the larger themes explored but because it's heart felt, honest and above all wise. Like some of the other reviewers this record has had a big impact upon me. It rings true with my own experience; is life afirming for that reason. All of this and a simply a wonderful collection of funky soulful tunes with Marr at his best too.

This is a great the The album - better than Mind Bomb but not quite reaching the highs of Soul Mining and Infected. the The sound more like a band than they ever had and I would recommend this to any the The fans. Slow Emotion Replay is the stand out track here. I'm glad Matt dropped Johnny after this as I really liked what he did for Naked Self. Just wish he would release another (solo) album!

the The are my dark secret ;) Not many people know about then, which is a shame but at the same time means I get to enjoy them on my own.

Dusk is about as close to a masterpiece as you can
get...and that's from someone who still reckons
that Soul Mining is pretty damn near perfect!
Johnson's music is not for the faint-hearted. If
the songs glow with an intense complexity on record, this is very much a factor live. And so
it was when he took the stage to bring us the goods once more. He's been compared to a rock
Moses, coming down from the mountain every three
years or so to tell us about ourselves and the
world. Well, thank God he does.
Highlights? Dogs of Lust is a belter and you can
hear the emotion cracking his voice on the sublime
Love Is Stronger Than Death. Helpline Operator
is a hymn to a society that has to pay someone to
listen to its problems and Lonely Planet takes us
out with a similar feeling to Soul Mining's (awesome) closing cut Giant with a stonking chorus and some superb articulation from MJ.
Johnson is a genius and Dusk proves it.

Ah, another release from The The and another good one. This is a good ten years after Soul Mining, and their sound is still as unique now as it was then. My favorite song on this cd is "Love is Stronger than Death" which is a terrific song. There really isn't much that I can compare this band to - possibly the closest is Peter Murphy. All of the songs have a sound that only this band does. I don't think this music is for everyone though, so try and have a listen before buying.
