Blackberry Belle – Record Collector
The Twilight Singers are from the USA and they will be touring the UK from January 2004. And I for one, would like to be there if this new album is anything to go by. The musical ideas and production values have been garnered from impeccable sources… there’s everything in here from the Beatles/Floyd through to the Cure and The Smiths tinged with bluegrass and metal guitar… and all fronted by Greg Dulli’s great vocals. Finding inspiration from the past is one thing, pulling it all together is quite another. These guys have truly succeeded as this album pleases right to the very end.
If you’re looking for happy happy, this isn’t it. It’s wonderfully angst ridden and not over egged in any sense; the songs never become laments and they all glide along very smoothly, seamlessly sliding between styles and settings.
