at last , dulli releases an album he should have released with the whigs . Well this is an album of covers , and I'd waited years for the Afghan Whigs to do an album of the absolute incredible covers they'd done either live or as b-sides , it never happened and I've spent much time gathering those together. Well this album is as close as the Twilight Singers have got to the Whigs , which I think is good thing , but maybe others out there think different . In particular , Too tough to die , Black is the colour and my personal favourate , Billie Holliday's Strange Fruit make you realise Dulli still has some Whigs in him , and after seeing them live in London a few weeks ago ,where they played everything a lot more up tempo , I'm content to love the Twilight Singers for the music they are producing ,excepting that they'll never be the Afghan Whigs all over again , but it's pretty damn close !! This is a nice album , I've enjoyed it a little more than Blackberry Belle , there are no bad songs , no stocking fillers !!! , if anything , it's all over a bit quick , but then good albums always are . Buy it , no one is gonna hate it , and you may just end up lovin it
This is the way to do a covers record. Take a bunch of great numbers, turn them in to your own, and put them out there for the world to hear. I'm a great Greg Dulli fan, whether it's Afghan Whigs, The Gutter Twins or in this instance The Twilight Singers, he is constantly bringing his A-game! I can recommend this one warmly, as well as all the other Twilight Singers albums.
