Powder Burns – The L Magazine

The L Magazine, New York City’s Local Event Guide By Jocelyn Hoppa During a recent, trip to New Orleans my first impression of its culturally rich, yet dark, mysterious vibe was, “This is a Greg Dulli kind of town.” Powder Burns is a meditation on beauty rising from destruction. A divergent collection of highs and lows alike, the record kicks off with the instrumental ‘Toward the Waves,’ which flows directly into the soulful, rocking ‘I’m Ready.’ The album was recorded mostly in New Orleans (much…

Powder Burns – Pulse Niagara

Pulse Niagara Online Edition T.S. Eliot once wrote that “it is the medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and yet remain lonesome.” Twilight Singers commander Greg Dulli knows this and has built his career upon penning lyrics that are equal parts morose and uplifting but he has never previously sounded so self–assured and assertive as he does on Powder Burns. Dulli’s voice dominates songs like “My Time” and “Candy Cane Crawl” where he…

Powder Burns – Orlando Weekly

Orlando Weekly – Music Review – Powder Burns By Billy Manes Who would have expected this? Greg Dulli — longtime caricature of post-grunge, stained-tuxedo-shirt excess — leaves his post as the twice-lit cigarette butt in the corner of a neon-bar hallucination, only to re-emerge as a competent rock hero atop a driving wave of power chords and seamless production. Powder Burns, the fourth album from Dulli’s pluralized alias, the Twilight Singers, heralds a Bold New Beginning from the former Afghan Whig, and he’s not afraid…

Powder Burns – The Skinny

The Skinny – Twilight Singers – Powder Burns Dulli has treaded the underbelly for too many years now, with ‘Powder Burns’ he emerges, the nuanced victorious pugilist Rating: 5 ‘S’s They say that in forensic science, powder burns are analyzed to determine the distance between a victim and the weapon that killed him. On the fourth Twilight Singers LP, they’re littered all over Greg Dulli’s crime scene and as such it plays out with the ambience of a classic noir from start to finish. He…

Powder Burns – New Noise

new-noise.net By Steven Fanning 2006 has been a busy year for former Afghan Whigs front man Greg Dulli. Having released the ‘Amber Headlights’ solo album earlier in the year, Dulli now continues his prolific spree with the new, fourth Twilight Singers record ‘Powder Burns’. And a lovely collection of 12 typically Dulli tracks it is too. The Afghan Whigs provided a softer edge to American rock n roll as grunge briefly dominated the world in the early nineties. There was never anything anthemic or immediate…

Powder Burns – Allmusic

allmusic.com 4/5 Stars by Marisa Brown Addiction, as Greg Dulli knows, is an all-consuming occupation. Finding your next fix is what drives every move, every breathe, every word. It is your devil and it is your god, your sickness and your well-being. It is, in short, your entire life. And so the fact that Dulli sobered up in the time between the Twilight Singers’ previous album, She Loves You, and Powder Burns doesn’t make it surprising that this latest release is about that disease. But…

Powder Burns – Gaffa.dk

Translation welcome… Ind i mørket med stil – nu med mindre soul og mere rock Rating: 5/6 – Af Finn P. Madsen | Link Ingen formår som Greg Dulli at gribe en sang om de vitale dele og få den til at stå oprejst i strid modvind. Amerikas sorte underliv var omdrejningspunktet for Dullis tidligere band The Afghan Whigs og er det om noget også for The Twilight Singers. Bandet fortsætter den betændte stil på Powder Burns med direkte kurs mod mørket, men har til…

Powder Burns – Interview Magazine

—Matt Diehl Greg Dulli seems to be taking John Lennon’s role of artist as ultimate confessor to heart. The darkly charismatic mastermind behind the Twilight Singers (and founder of grunge-era cult heroes Afghan Whigs) remains one of our nation’s greatest unsung songwriters. On Powder Burns, the group’s fourth album, this auteur of angst creates a gripping song cycle of seduction, addiction, and redemption. Accordingly, this is big-canvas music—epic psychedelic rock, honed with the hard-earned passion of soul and electronica’s cool fire. Defiantly honest and brutal,…

Powder Burns – The Sun

Rating: 5 Grunge survivor Greg Dulli sings “I’ve come a long way” on the menacing “My Time (Has Come).” Too right. Listening to this intense, personal affair, you sense a man who has lived on the darker edes of existence but still keeps a fire burning in his soul. This is the fourth album under his Twilight Singers guise by the former Afghan Whigs frontman. It’s a brooding success, cut through with raging guitars (I’m Ready) and moments of quiet reflection (The Conversation). Watch out…

Powder Burns – The Word

June 2006 – Issue 40 By David Sinclair When it comes to exploring the dark underbelly of the beast in search of stories to bring back from the other side, Greg Dulli is not a man to shirk responsibilities. Twenty years since he started the Afghan Whigs in Cincinnati, and now on his fourth album as the mainman of the Twilight Singers, Dulli’s swashbuckling commitment to the alt.rock cause remains undiminished. Powder Burns chronicles a period of his life spent running the streets of LA…
