Powder Burns – Star-Telegram
The name of the record says it all: This album is about the casualties of drug use. On the fourth Twilight Singers album, former Afghan Whigs singer Greg Dulli ‘fesses up to his drug and alcohol problems, and faces them with both a clenched fist and a shrug of the shoulders, sometimes fighting, sometimes just giving in. While past TS records have been a little on the mellow side, the band has never sounded as ferocious as they do on I’m Ready and My Time Has Come.
