    An unassuming and bewitching masterpiece.

    If you haven't bought one of his [Mark Lanegan's] records for a while, this is a great place to get reacquainted. [Jun 2013, p.100]

    Another strong addition to Lanegan’s increasingly impressive canon, it makes despair sound worryingly inviting.

    Aside from a few missteps, the most egregious being the Clavinova funk of "Cold Molly," this is well worthwhile for fans of either artist and those seeking some high-grade, low-key authenticity. [Mar-Apr 2013, p.93]

    So we get the usual talk of death rides, mescalitoes and, erm, black pudding. But when the duo do click, it’s masterful.

    Both men have made better albums and Black Pudding sounds like a couple of guys too deferential to each other to actually raise a challenge and push a boundary or two. [Jun 2013, p.85]
  7. 50
    It’s a less appealing debut than Lanegan’s first records with, say, Isobel Campbell or Soulsavers, and a challenging introduction to American audiences for the talented Garwood.
