  • Summary: The third disc for the Twilight Singers, the side project for the Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli, is a covers album, tackling such interesting, diverse subject matter as Bjork's "Hyperballad," John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme," and Marvin Gaye's "Please Stay (Once You Go Away)."

  1. A wholly stunning album. [#7]

    These may be other people's words, but Dulli well knows the vocabulary. [Nov 2004, p.112]
  3. A compellingly listenable record whose thematic signal points add up to one of the very, very few viable theme/concept albums composed solely of cover tunes.
  4. Dulli isn’t in Johnny Cash’s league yet -- then again, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits are the only people who are -- but 'She Loves You' marks him out as a fellow traveller.
  5. For better and worse, Dulli molds these bizarrely disparate song choices into shapes that suit his style, overpowering them on occasion, but only so as not to come across as slavishly deferential or dull.
  6. It's still very plainly the Dulli Show, placing his cigarette-stained voice and oversized heartache front-and-center.
  7. Dulli sounds like he's performing at a Sunday pub gig. [Oct 2004, p.130]

    Dulli may revel in his own eclecticism, but this is still his most start-to-finish enjoyable album in a decade.

    Brilliantly cohesive for a covers album. The choice of songs is brave - esp. Hyperballad and Strange Fruit - but somehow Dulli pulls it off. Brilliantly cohesive for a covers album.

    Unbelievable record. There's no question Dulli's got soul.
