Purchased this after seeing them on Later with Jools Holland... I remember seeing Greg Dulli on Later with Mark Lanegan as The Gutter Twins but did not realise he was the Afghan Whigs as well.

Great album with nary a duff track in sight but up for special mention are Matamoros, It Kills, Algiers and Royal Cream.

What I find most striking about Greg Dulli is that he is not a good singer in the conventional sense but as with other great vocalists
has that knack of getting under your skin. His vocals are also applied to some terrific tunes.

Great comeback!

A fantastic album that hails the return of Afghan Whigs. They remain as relevant and fresh sounding as they did in their last album. An amazing album with several outstanding songs. My personal favourite from the album is Algiers, but Matamoros, Can Rova and Royal Cream join the ranks amongst classic Afghan Whigs tracks.

If you like the band, get it, a great addition to the catalogue. If you don't know them, this is a brilliant starting point and a fantastic introduction to a band that I believe deserves more attention.

When it arrived I found that I had a first pressing,180g, white vinyl double album. By the Afghan Whigs. Dulli's unique (some say tortured) vocals and wonderfully layered, soulful, funky/punky rock tunes make this album a fine listen, if your system and speakers can do it justice. A window into the darker side of love, heartbreak and obsession. If you are a (Whigs/Twilight Singers/Gutter Twins) fan, then you'll know what I mean. If you're not, try it. You may be pleasantly surprised. Good stuff.

Can they still cut it? Are they going to crash and burn or sound better than The Twilight Singers? A resounding yes...some great moments here with trademark Whigs themes and wobbly Dulli vocals...still burning, still passionate and still there. A welcome return indeed.

A welcome return from the Dulli boys. better live than studio but fantastic stuff all the same. 'these Sticks' is one of the Whigs' best ever tracks but gets no attention. Not played live either, strange.

Love the band, love the album but it is a grower. You need to listen to it several times to really appreciate it.

First time I have listened to this band...really good mixture of soft and hard rock can't stop listening to it, difficult to say who they remind me off maybe a bit of Guns and Roses and The National...
