Whigs leader Greg Dulli remains a black-music ironist bar none. Merging cool- fire post-grunge into Puff Daddy quotes and symphonic blaxploitation sweep, he creates maximum premillennium tension. Yet he's also one of rock's finest lyricists: His noir vignettes read like a Jim Thompson novel, their erotic narratives expertly skewering the male psyche. "Whatever did happen to your soul?" he queries at the beginning of "Crazy"; its fascinating carcass, however, lies here for all to see.
