5.0 out of 5 stars grunge/country?, 16 April 2004
This review is from: The Winding Sheet (Audio CD)
.
I first heard of Mark Lanegan through the Screaming Trees albums and fell in love with his vocals instantly, and was saddened to hear they broke up. I hadn't realised that Lanegan, it seems, will be making music till the day he dies. Other collaborations include Kurt Kobain (as on this album), The Desert Sessions and of course Queens Of The Stone Age.

Lanegans solo albums always make best use of his deep, gravelly, whisky soaked voice and this album is no exception. Its easy to see why he would then spend so much time with Screaming Trees after this, as this album is quite introspective. You can occasionally hear him reach for the higher scream/ wails to be found on those albums, although here its much more contained.
Its extraordinary to hear this album now and realise it was released about 15 years ago! Its such mature music making, heavily steeped in the themes of the best county music- very truthful, slightly raw, perfectly balanced. Its no wonder everyone wants to work with him!
