  • Summary: Combining blues, R&B, jazz and funk influences, this latest offering from the ever-changing 4AD group headed by Warren Defever, like its predessor (2001's 'Someday My Blues Will Cover The Earth'), features the vocals of Lovetta Pippen. Included among the originals here are covers of The Equals' "Teardrops," Ida's "Maybe," and Jimi Hendrix's "Train." Collapse

  1. It isn't as succint, and heart-wrenching, as Someday... and it may not have the slicing modernity of HNIA's earlier works, but the idea of the project propels it still.
  2. Some of their finest work to date.
  3. Last Night sacrifices the unified statement of Someday for a more varied, deliriously fun lack of coherency.
  4. Last Night is a perfectly serviceable mellow slow-jam R&B record -- and that's a damned shame.
  5. Last Night is as moody as funk can get, and the results range from soulful to pretentious.
  6. 60
    Less startling than its predecessor Ft Lake, but it's still a brave departure for a 4AD band previously synonymous with ethereal whimsy. [Nov 2002, p.118]
  7. Pippen's lush tones are again a good foil for Defever's haunting music. [Oct 2002, p.109]
