A Stitch in Time – Tasty
Single Reviews 2006
Now this is nice. Greg Dulli often frustrates me, cos he’s got so much talent, and he so obviously wastes it half the time. But this five track ep is just fine, thank you very much.
Opening track, ‘Live With Me’ opens up all sultry, like, and then explodes into a meandering, powerful torch song. It’s pretty ace, y’know.
‘Sublime’ takes it down a notch or two, and could quite easily be a horrible mid-80s AOR track if it wasn’t for Dulli’s cattle grid vocals. Oh, and it’s probably the sexiest song you’ll hear this year.
‘They Ride’, meanwhile, reverts to more typical Twilight Singers fayre, and rocks the big one.
A welcome return to form, then.
