FilterThis is the closet Dulli has come to replicating the genius he displayed with the Whigs, but it's not a retread. [#20, p.100]
MojoThe autobiographical lyrics on offer here make for intimate listening. [Jun 2006, p.108]
Sounding (at best, mind you) like an uninspired Afghan Whigs tribute band, it recycles motifs, melody lines, production tricks, and lyrics from the back catalog. Part of the problem lies in the production--it's far too muddled, loud, and flat--but even the most gifted producer would have trouble making a good album out of the Dulli-by-numbers on display here.

JimmyJJun 4, 2006Great Album.
JeremyDMay 30, 2006Just doesn't capture the magic of early TS material. Certainly doesn't come close to the Whigs. Really, a very poor record.
