Ok, so this is going to be the most biased review I could ever write. Why? Well, Greg Dulli's Twilight Singers are one of my all time favourite bands, and hopefully if you take the Twilight plunge they will be yours as well.

My first foray into husband and wife team, Rennie and Brett Sparks and their minimilist country, alt-folk creations came when I purchased their "Live at Shuba's Tavern". I was immediately drawn into ther world and felt that I had known of their music forever.

I have not been let down. Last Days of Wonder is all that I thought it would be and more. From the opening "Your Great Journey" a studied, lyical musing on death wrapped up in a country sheen, to… Read more
