Mark Lanegan Is The Modern Day Tom Waits,
This review is from: FIELD SONGS (Audio CD)
'Field Songs' is a great album from Mark, i first got into Mark via the album 'Sweet Oblivion' by the Screaming Trees.
This album is a good introduction to Mark Lanegan's work, i particular enjoy his 2nd solo album as well, 'Whiskey for the Holy Ghost'.
Being critical, i don't really like Mark's first solo album and i have seen Mark play live several times over the past 10 years and believe that he should be playing better venues with better acoustics as Mark's voice is always lost in the standard rock club, living in London i think Mark should be playing at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Buy 'Field Songs' and lets all wish that the South Bank will have Tom Waits as their 'Meltdown Director' for 2004 and that Tom has Mark as one of his special guests ;)
