5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 22 Feb 2006
By GI - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Mark Lanegan and bought this ep (and the full disc) based off that fact. I was not disappointed and in fact was surprised and how nice Isobell Campbell's voice is (not being familar with her songs.) The two voices meld perfectly in Rambling Man give a modern sound at the same time it gives an almost 20s jazzy sound (amazingly cool.) And even the songs that Mark is not on sound great. My favorite song on the EP has the be the remake of the often redone never to this sucess of St. James Infirmry.

4.0 out of 5 stars "when the lord made me/he made a ramblin' man" 17 Feb 2006
By Justin J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mark Lanegan, the former frontman for Screaming Trees, has been doing the dark alt.country thing for a while now; he's always done it well, but in this collaboration with Belle & Sebastian's Isobell Campbell he does it superbly. It takes a big voice and a swagger to successfully cover the Hank Williams-penned title track, and Lanegan has both. Though nobody can fill the cultural hole that Johnny Cash has left behind, Lanegan makes a good case that his weathered baritone can fill the sonic one.

Lanegan treats Campbell like his secret weapon, bringing her out slowly and purposefully. She lays down a soft accompaniment on the title track while handling some decidedly June Carter-esque harmonies on the wonderfully charming ballad "(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me." "Revolver Pt. 2" has Campbell bringing out her inner chateneuse to whispersing over Lanegan's creepy-barely-there guitar, a spectre singing to a ghost town. The track is affecting, minimal, striking, gorgeous. It's a black hole that would swallow up the other songs on most EPs, but to Lanegan's credit his other selections stand strong. Lanegan's voice is absent for the folk standard "St. James Infirmary," but in exchange we get the entrance of Campbell's cello and some heady gender swapping in her performance of the male narrator's voice.

The teases of harmony the duo hand us here are tantalizing, and one gets the sense that if both singers were to go at full-tilt we'd get sonic gold. The Ramblin Man EP is just a preview of the full length collaboration due some time later this year, and if the rest of the material is this good then it may be time to start firing up those Top 10 Lists.

8.7/10

This is an album that should be heard. The mix of voices is commanding and needs to be heard. Isobel Campbell and Mark Knofler made a dynamic duo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Isobel transcends 7 Feb 2006
By Stargrazer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've heard a lot of different versions of "Ramblin' Man," and this just may be the definitive one. Lanegan's weathered croak and Campbell's feathery delivery are beautifully juxtaposed. A great feel to this EP, with barely a hint of Belle and Sebastian.
3.0 out of 5 stars guitar voice trembling and more 27 Jun 2008
By Claudio Sestili - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first fell in love with Isobel's voice when she was with Belle & Sebastian, so i had no surprise discovering she was on track. Very charming and deep voice, that bang bang looks like sound i suggest you hear.
I dream to see her on stage with Calexico: how soon?
