I may be biased...,
This review is from: Here Comes That Weird Chill (Audio CD)
Having loved every single one of his recordings (from Screaming Trees and QotSA, to Mad Season and solo offerings), I may not be the best person to give a subjective review of this EP.
But I'm going to, because I just have to say how superb it is. He's dropped his country/grunge sound (almost sad to hear it go, but I guess we got 5 albums of it out of the man) for something a bit different - almost a cross of Tom Waits, early Springsteen (something about Lexington Slowdown reminds me of very early Boss) and, well, I think I have to go with the now made obvious link and say Beefheart.
Lanegan's voice is as seminal as any fo the above mentioned artists, as in my opinion (and remembering I'm a big Waits and Beefheart fan) is his discography so far.
Well worth at least checking out, if you don't end up buying a copy for yourself and everyone you know.
