Greatest album ever?
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 18/03/2008 17:50:36
There aren't many albums I can say changed my life, but this one I can. It changed my whole taste in music around when I brought it when it first came out four years ago, and it still sounds as fresh now as the first time I heard it. It's slow, rocking, depressing, beautiful, uplifting and whole other mix of stuff. Lanegan's voice is almost hypnotic on tracks such as 'When you're number isn't up', and 'bombed', but then he ups the tempo with tracks such as 'sideways in reverse' and 'driving death valley blues'. Lanegan's honest lyrics have a profound depth to them echoing Layne Staley's writing, which will make you feel sad but content about yourself at the same time.
Though Lanegan has produced some quality stuff after this with various bands, I don't think anything comes close to this.

Lanegan Beats the Devil
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 11/10/2007 14:11:18
For just over 20 years Mark Lanegan has been an ambassador for `alternative' music in America: as the frontman for the undervalued Screaming Trees, Greg Dulli co-conspirator, Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator, and solo artist (not to mention many other guest appearances).
There's no doubt that that Lanegan's stint in the `Desert Rock' outfit Queens Of The Stone Age has brought a fresh interest to his work, and it would appear that the band has maybe given him the hunger to once again bring his own brand of alternative rock to the music buying public.
`Bubblegum' is Mark Lanegan's sixth solo album, and the first credited to the `Mark Lanegan Band' -- which Lanegan himself attributes to the absence of the ever-present Mike Johnson (who featured prominently on his earlier `low-key' solo releases) -- and is quite a departure from his previous solo work.
Although the subtlety of his last few records is not absent, it is fair to say that `Bubblegum' is a cohesive collection of the singer's musical persona. It is his most rock orientated set since Screaming Trees' Dust, while being as devastatingly honest as `Scraps At Midnight'. In fact, this is quite unlike any other rock album. A remarkable achievement.
It's unpredictable, desolate yet hopeful, beautiful and redemptive.
`Bubblegum' is, in every sense, a staggering record.
