Blackberry in City Paper Top 10

Baltimore's City Paper named Blackberry Belle number 9 in their Top 10 Albums of 2003 list.

Twilight Singers Blackberry Belle (One Little Indian) Is former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli on track to be America's Serge Gainsbourg? A soused, red-nosed rambler live, Dulli occupies a dusky sepia-toned vignette he so perfectly captures on Twilight Singers' swooning sophomore album, Blackberry Belle. You can practically feel the groove's grain and the neck's pulsing vein as Dulli belts delirious, darkly erotic tales of decadence and desperation over his amorphous assemblage's devilish harmonic swagger. At least a Leonard Cohen on his way to being a Dirty Old Man, national-treasure status as a prowling balladeer may just be in store for Dulli if he continues at this rate.

Thanks to Chris for the tip.
