Imagine a competition between Brian Jones & Jimi Hendrix. On the drug intake these two wouldnt be beaten, so therefore a tie methinks (well maybe Keith Moon would argue). But on the musical front only one really endures when one is fondly remembered. Well this record is to Dulli far more important that it is to Lanegan. The Afghanwhigs are my favourite band of all time, a band whos broken hearts & smashed dreams littered my youth like the ruins that haunted many an anxed teen in the early 90's. As for Lanegan he has always been the voice for hire ever since the screaming trees called it time in about 97. After that he has popped up on classic record after classic record. In fact it is rare to hear a CD nowadays without Lanegans gravely tones over a part of it. Now together this record sounds exactly as you would imagine it would. Not really a coherent collection of songs rather a soundscape splattered with a bloody blueprint of what might've been.

This is the first thing I've ever owned by either of the artists, and I love it. It's been playing constantly since I got it a week ago, and the range of styles makes it constantly intriguing. From intense, rocky 'The Stations' and the dirty 'All Misery' right through to the bluesy 'Seven Stories' and the melodic 'Front Street' this is an album that grabs the listener and doesn't let go. Yes it's dark, yes the tempo drops now and then, but that's a very good thing!
And even my mum likes some of it!
If you're looking for an antidote to the banal, bland repetition of the radio, buy this.

This album hits you in all the right places. It contains rocking melodies, beautifully crafted creations and easy listening tunes. There is a mixture of Lanegan vocals, Dulli vocals and both at the same time. Anyone who is a fan of Indie, Blues, Metal, Goth, Prog Rock or Punk can enjoy this album. I cant wait for the next offering from these two legends of the industry...

I purchased this CD purely on the strength of the reviews it's been receiving...big mistake! Maybe they stuck the wrong CD in the case when I bought it? I've tried listening through it twice (the second time I gave up halfway through). Dull tunes, contrived lyrics...the star I gave was for the wonderful photograph on the cover. Unfortunately that's about the only positive thing I can say about this shockingly over-hyped effort. Imagine if you left Metallica out in the rain for too long - this is what you'd end up with. The word that springs to mind is 'dirge'. If you're interested in getting hold of a copy I'll be leaving mine on the No. 9 bus on the way home...
