Rezension

Zweites Album von `94, ganze vier Jahre nach dem erstaunlichen „Winding Sheet“ Debüt. Etwas hoffnungsvoller tönend und von Mike Johnson üppiger arrangiert, singt Lanegan hier mit seiner einzigartigen, so sehr unter die Haut gehenden Stimme seine Lieder über Alkohol, gebrochene Herzen und geplatzte Träume.

Review

„...Brilliant... a monument to morbid, magnificent self-absorption... a dense but intensely moving piece of work...“ (Melody Maker)
“Mark Lanegan and his whiskey-beaten baritone are better known as the emotive vocal and songwriting components of the Screaming Trees, a band whose hard and swirling rock has always boasted a depth most bands hope to achieve on just one release. whiskey For The Holy Ghost is the long-awaited follow-up to Laneganþs solo debut, 1990þs pensive, heart-wrenching The Winding Sheet. Weþll forgive the three-year wait, because this set of damp, Northwestern blues is as potent and fraught with emotion as anything Laneganþs recorded. Liner note readers will find big rock names such as J Mascis, Tad Doyle, Jack Endino and Mudhoneyþs Dan Peters in the fine print, but really this is Lanegan and collaborator Mike Johnsonþs vision. Johnson s warm acoustic and electric guitars bathe Laneganþs songs in sympathetic swaddling, merging the punch-in-the-stomach -ache of traditional blues with the weepy, blue-eyed soul of the Treesþ rock `n roll. The heavy rhythms and vociferous guitars of "Borracho" make it a natural for Trees fans, while the slow progression of "The River Rise," the tender vocal interplay and percussion of "Riding The Nightingale," the delicacy of "Sunrise" and the cinematic scope of "Beggarþs Blues" are subtler but equally powerful.” (CMJ)
