TOP 500 REVIEWERon 16 September 2013
Every artist seems to have the desire to do a covers album, and the most interesting arethe ones where they choose tracks that seem to be outside their comfort zone. Lanegan has done this here and because of his unique throaty yet melifluous voice he has stamped his own personality all over these songs and genuinely made them his own. My highlight is Mack the knife, just the voice accompanied by a picked acoustic guitar. Eerily brilliant. Not all the tracks are stripped down though, the closer Autumn Leaves has a full string section attached for example.
I suspect this album may split Lanegan fans as it is very "out there" and quite a departure from previous works but I applaud his bravery and really enjoy this album.
