5.0 out of 5 stars Another gorgeous album that is honing the ML sound, 3 May 2003
This review is from: FIELD SONGS (Audio CD)
Before I bought this, I had only heard of Mark Lanegan as I owned the "Singles" soundtrack, Screaming Trees' "Dust" and Mark's own "I'll Take Care Of You" covers album. After hearing "Field Songs", I decided to look back and bought his entire (solo) back catalogue and the Trees' "Sweet Oblivion". The man has such a great voice! The songs are wonderful too: from the whiskey-drenched "One Way Street", the Oriental-flavoured "No Easy Action", the spine-tingling "Miracle"... The heart gets a mention too, on "Don't Forget Me", most likely a nod to one of his exes. There's the lovely (in a haunting kinda way) "Kimiko's Dream House", co-written by Jeffrey Lee Pierce (of The Gun Club fame). "Resurrection Song" is as good as "Miracle", and "Low" is another reason why you shouldn't just buy the single (not that there is one, as Lanegan's more of an album artist anyway) like many do these days. The album closer, "Fix" is just furthermore proof that Lanegan's underrated as a songwriter. He'll probably never be up there with the greats, but that's a position he wouldn't like to be in anyway. Tell your friends who have good taste in music & make them listen! ;-)
