So it has taken me a while to review this album.......... because I don't think that I can express just how good it is................
The Afghan Whigs drew my attention in the 90's with Greg Dulli's incredible emotion both lyrically and vocally, highlighted by what has continued to remain my favourite album of all time , 'Gentlemen'.
As the Whigs slid away into history and the Twilight Singers emerged I believed I would always feel deep down that the 'Singers would never fulfil me in the way that the Whigs did.

This is an album that is apreciated as an album , every song is superb and each runs into the next as a pefectly honed machine.Yvonne Duckworth's (hopefully no relation to Vera and Jack )voice bounces along from song to song , sends tingles down your spine and makes you believe that she is the greatest female rock vocalist that ever lived , and , of course , she is!!!
I want to pick out my favorite tracks , but it is hard , I'll go for… Read more
