His Name is Alive's 7th regular release (not counting their self-published releases available direct from the group) and is the the last on the 4AD label, from 2002. The band's own website gives the clue that it was recorded shortly after "Someday my Blues..." with which it shares many similarities.
I'm sure I recall Warren Defever explaining in an interview once that despite the many changes in style over the years, his preferred way to work has changed little: "...(1) a pretty girl sings a sad song, (2) I make a noise in the background..." and that's exactly what happens here. Lovetta Pippin has a beautiful voice, wonderful range and sings these lyrics because she believes them. Warn's guitar sounds like early Neil Young on "I Have Special Powers" whereas a horn ensemble blast some jazz-funk throughout the long "Someday My Prince Will Come" (name-checking Miles Davis?). "Train" is a revised version of the song that appeard on Warn's solo album "I Want You to Live 100 Years" (which you might be advised to steer clear of unless you like old-style country i.e. Hank Williams-era).
"Last Night" is brilliant, understated, varied, unsettling a little, but good for lonely late-nights. But you don't have to listen alone: like "Someday my Blues..." its also great seduction music. Why don't you find someone you fancy & invite them around for dinner with these two albums on the stereo?

"The unconventional is now conventional", Mark E. Smith spat on Slates, way back in 1980. The irony of His Name Is Alive - always a VERY unconventional "band" - being dropped by their allegedly "unconventional" label (4AD), for delivering an album of a "conventional" nature, seems somewhat hypocritical on reflection, doesn't it? Casting an eye over 4AD's current mediocre roster, & then listening back to Last Night - an LP that sounds even better, & makes much more sense, a decade after it's release - I can't help but think something has gone horribly wrong somewhere along the line? And that Warren Defever was right all along, of course...

Briefly: Last Night, like it's equally "controversial" (!) predecessor Someday My Blues Will Inherit The Earth, is a modern soul album, albeit with sporadic, peripheral touches of HNIA weirdness to ensure it doesn't seamlessly morph into Morcheeba. It's a lovely record, it's barely dated, & it sounds NOTHING like Livonia (hey, you'll get over it). Equally, HNIA's latest work sounds nothing like Last Night either. They're brilliant, I love them, I want them to live 100 years.
