Unbreakable – St. Petersburg Times

Grade: A

As leader of the terrifically lost, vastly unloved Afghan Whigs, singer-songwriter Greg Dulli mixed the howling self-hate of the grunge movement with the heart-sleeved hope of arena rockers. The Cincinnati-born band should have been bigger, but its emotionally disheveled leader expected this frustrated fate. There’s a bipolar beauty to Dulli’s songs, with soft moments often turning into vengeful screams. On the jarring “Be Sweet”, his pillow talk turns punk ugly… then pretty… then ugly again, as the singer just can’t get a handle on love.
