5.0 out of 5 stars Bublegum pop, 3 Aug 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Bubblegum (Audio CD)
It's been odd to see Mark Lanegan gathering enthusiastic reviews from the music press and broadsheets alike, but Bubblegum is unlikely to disappoint either old or new fans.
Building successfully on last year's Hre Comes That Weird Chill ep, bubblegum straddle the hard rock of QoTSA and his earlier, acoustic solo material.
In fact, the weakest track is Methamphetamine Blues from that ep, although that could just be a case of overfamiliarity breeding (negligible, really) contempt.
Bubblegum's strength is that it manages to switch between moody tracks like When Your Number isn't Up and Wedding Dress with out and balls to the wall rock like Sideways in Reverse without appearing at all disjointed. No mean feat considering the amount of high-profile guests littering the credits.
Lanegan is widely recognised as having one of the great voices in rock but it seems that only now people are sitting up and taking notice of his songwriting. And about time too.
Album of the year? ...yeah.
