Amber Headlights – Alt.Culture.Guide

Alt.Culture.Guide: Greg Dulli – Greg Dulli’s Amber Headlights (2005) As frontman for ’90s-era critical darlings the Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli was responsible for bringing a measure of soul to a rather barren alt-rock landscape. While most bands of the decade – particularly those from the over-hyped Seattle scene – acted like they had never heard of R&B music, Dulli’s songwriting for the Whigs injected a sense of history and energy into the band’s rocking sound. Despite a shot at the big time with two major…

Amber Headlights – Pow Pow Pow

powpowpow.com Amber Headlights is a collection of songs, with strong appeal, not just to those who love Greg Dulli’s work from the Afghan Whigs and the Twilight Singers, but to anyone who likes a strong, well constructed song, that, whilst being technically brilliant, does not lose sight of the fact that music is about feelings and emotions and is always aided by sassy, sex appeal…this album is a complete journey, ideas and movements reinforced from one song to the next, that leaves the listener gasping…

Amber Headlights – RTE.ie

RTE.ie – 4 Stars Shelved after the death of his filmmaker friend Ted Demme in 2002, ‘Amber Headlights’ shows that even Greg Dulli’s unfinished business is better than most artists’ completed albums. While Dulli’s first Twilight Singers record in 2000 swapped amps for atmospherics, this one – worked on between spring 2001 and the following January – harks back to the swaggering rock of his former band the Afghan Whigs, using a revolving line-up of musicians but sounding as tight and focussed as any road…

Amber Headlights – Leeds Music Scene

Leeds Music Scene – Tim Hann 3 Stars Amber Headlights is the first solo record from Greg Dulli, ex-singer/songwriter of the criminally underrated grunge/soul outfit The Afghan Whigs, and founder of the excellent (and still together) Twilight Singers. Written in 2001, between the release of the debut Twilight Singers’ record and its follow up in 2003 (“Blackberry Belle”), “Amber Headlights” is a snapshot of Greg Dulli in a transitional stage. Dulli even admits this on the sleeve notes, “What you have here are my days…

Amber Headlights – CD Times (UK)

CDTimes.co.uk Rating: 6/10 by Richard Hughes After the split of the Afghan Whigs it was always going to be interesting to see where Greg Dulli was going to go to next. When the Twilight Singers released their first album and then followed it up with the rather excellent Blackberry Belle everything in the world of Dulli must looked great, but there was a moment in between these records that had changed his outlook. The material that makes up this record, the Amber Headlights, are sessions…

Amber Headlights – Metro (UK)

4/5 Stars Originally put on hold following the death of his close friend, the film director Ted Demme in 2002, Amber Headlights collects songs recorded after the 2001 demise of Greg Dulli’s soul-grunge hoodlums The Afghan Whigs and before the gospel-hued Twilight SIngers project became his day job. That it should be a document of a man in transition is appropriate: this black-hearted hombre has always excelled at escaping (usually himself) and at seeking redemption. From the dense breakneck recklessness of Cigarettes through the stomach-churning…

Amber Headlights – Free New Mexican

Terrell’s tune-up, 02/10/2006 Amber Headlights by Greg Dulli. This nine-song EP, clocking in at less than 35 minutes, sounds more like the Afghan Whigs than Dulli has in years. While his current band, the Twilight Singers, explores more layered, dreamier sounds, most of these songs offer that trademark angsty, Whigsy guitar — descended as much from ’70s blaxploitation soundtracks as punk/metal. There’s a good reason this sounds closer to his old band. It originally was recorded back in 2001, but for reasons I’m not sure…
