Powder Burns – Atomicduster
Atomicduster – Album Reviews
Fourth album from erstwhile Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli’s latest outfit.
T: The dog’s bollocks have grown hair since his operation.
T: Hmmm…there’s not really much I can say to that is there? What I can say though is that Greg Dulli is rapidly proving himself to be on a similar level of genius to Ian McCulloch, in that whatever he puts out is beautifully put together, full of depth, ballsy and ultimately very satisfying. One of the great relatively unsung heroes of our time.
N: Greg Dulli and cohorts rock out supreme, complete with cutting guitars, and exhausting rhythm and pace that any workout would benefit from, and of course not forgetting Greg’s poetic storytelling.
T: Interesting that the band plays on their previous Beatles “tribute” (2004’s “She Loves You”) by cut and pasting several of the Fab Four’s lyrics into the track “Forty Dollars”. An intriguing album that proves – if proof were needed – just how good a songwriter Dulli is. 9/10
