Order The Afghan Whigs'
New Album: In Spades

Dynamite Steps – Popdose I know it’s early in 2011, but Dynamite Steps has upped the ante yet again, and is clearly the best album of the young year. I expect it to be at or near the top of my list come December. I don’t often come right out and say this, but I urge you to get this album, today, right now.

Dynamite Steps – Rolling Stone – 3.5 Stars By Will Hermes February 15, 2011 Unleashing a persona that’s part barroom romantic, part serial killer, Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers project has now eclipsed his Nineties soul-grunge outfit Afghan Whigs. On the group’s fifth record, arrangements vary — dissonant strings, thrift-store drum machines, wah-wah guitar — but never the sense of menace, even when girl voices (Ani DiFranco, Petra Haden) hover like lost spirits. “Gunshots, baby/let’s cut through the crowd,” Dulli croons at one point over sniping guitar, like Satan taking…

Dynamite Steps –

via Rating: 8/10 Greg Dulli — former Afghan Whigs frontman and Twilight Singers’ sole constant — has been running toward and away from his thinking-woman’s douchebag persona for years. Dynamite Steps, his strongest, most widescreen set since the Whigs’ mid-’90s heyday (even if it could use another chorus or two), continues that push and pull.
