5.0 out of 5 stars every music lover should own this album
i feel compelled to write my first review simply because i feel the 3 stars awarded by the previous reviewer harsh. Sunday at devil dirt is an album of beautiful songs, beautifully produced and beautifully crafted. an album in your collection that will never grow outdated. trust me. do yourself a favour and buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid if Safe Outing from Wonderful Singer/Songwriter
Sunday at Devil Dirt is a solid outing from Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell and builds on their pleasant 2006 debut 'Ballad of the broken seas'. Once again its mainly a mixture of folk and pop with a dash of blues ('shotgun blues'). Being a long time Mark Lanegan fan (since whiskey) I feel his best work is still Whiskey for the Holy Ghost (1993) closely followed by The...

This is a simply brilliant album. It is full of beautifully crafted songs and the contrast between the two vocalists sets these off perfectly. I could add more but that pretty much says it all.

This special edition is worth paying the extra for as the live tracks on the second CD are very good

This review is from: Sunday At Devil Dirt (Audio CD)
Sunday at Devil Dirt is a solid outing from Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell and builds on their pleasant 2006 debut 'Ballad of the broken seas'. Once again its mainly a mixture of folk and pop with a dash of blues ('shotgun blues'). Being a long time Mark Lanegan fan (since whiskey) I feel his best work is still Whiskey for the Holy Ghost (1993) closely followed by The Winding sheet (1990), Field songs (2001) and Scraps at midnight (1998). The weird chill e.p. and Bubblegum albums marked an interesting change in direction, heavily influenced by Mark's time in Queens of the stone age and while these were engaging thay could not match the majority of his classic output. After Bubblegum I was hoping like many Lanegan fans for another solo album but thus far it has not materialised (but there are rumours as always!). Since this time we have seen many side projects but none have matched the genius displayed on his early solo efforts. The Soulsavers, The gutter Twins and now two albums with Isobel have all simply reinforced what we already knew, that Mark Lanegan is one of the best vocalists and songwriters out there, but they have not i feel added anything to his wonderful legacy. There is nothing particularly bad on Sunday at Devil Dirt but it doesn't exite much either. It's pleasant and relaxing and if approached as such then its a perfectly enjoyable 2a.m. record but don't go expecting a Pendulum, Museum or one way street here its just not that moving or deep, and i don't think its intended to be. If you think im being harsh try making a two disc compilation of the best Lanegan Tracks and see how many you pick from his collaborations. Personally the best thing i've heard from Mark in the last few years is his cover of Dylan's wonderful 'Man in the long black coat' a song tailor made for Mark's vocals if ever there was one. Lanegan appears to be happier in his life and his ever increasing output is proof that he has got over a lot of the troubles he suffered from in the past which is a wonderful thing for him personally but artistically im not so sure. The bonus live disc that accompanies this edition is pleasant although i'd have liked a little more reverb on Mark's voice and a slightly more respectful crowd! (they exist, some of the boots are proof of this). Also why not fill the disc up and add a few more live tracks from that night? 3.5 stars overall and worth picking up for the Lanegan lover.
