Saturnalia: The Gutter Twins - Dark and moody heavy rock from the most distinctive voices in the genre,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saturnalia (Audio CD)
I have long been a fan of the collaboration between Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, and as a result have been exploring other work by both musicians. My first port of call was this collaboration between Lanegan and Greg Dulli, and whilst it was a bit of a surprise it was a very pleasant one.
This is a dark album of heavy rock, with many layers and textures as Lanegan and Dulli tell us of the price they pay for their hedonistic lifestyles and the things that they have seen over the years of excess. Musically it is genius, one of the best heavy albums I have ever heard. Lanegan in particular is on fine vocal form, his ravaged and gravelly voice dominating the album for me. It's a masterpiece, 5 stars.
