    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]

    Though the sound is stripped down--limited mainly to voice, guitar and unusual atmospherics--the effect is also fairly frenzied and typically creepy as well.

    Black Pudding, like the foodstuff it’s named after, is more of an acquired taste.

    The teaming of Mark Lanegan with multi-instrumentalist bluesman Duke Garwood is an alliance of congruent attitudes and approaches.
  5. 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.
