MARK LANEGAN BAND – Gargoyle – 8/10. Sounding like a love-child of Leonard Cohen and Iggy Pop, the tireless Lanegan has survived working with bands like Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age and UNKLE to croon his ass off and give you this wonderful alt-goth solo release.

More dreamy than hard, like early Cure or the last two Iggy Pop records.

Not a bad song on it. “Blue Blue Sea”‘is my favorite – that synth line is intoxicating. Break out your cigarettes and pour a glass of absinthe. Highly recommended.
