Mark Lanegan has returned with Phantom Radio, and has evolved his sound once again. Texture and depth are created with electronics, minimalist drums, and subtle layers of bass and guitar, but the one constant that rises over all of this, is that voice. Lanegan has one of the best, full stop.
Rich, warm, and world weary all at the same time, it's never wavered in quality since the early days of Screaming Trees, and continues to impress here.
Whether it's on upbeat opener 'Harvest Home', or the gentler 'I am the Wolf', Lanegan never fails to captivate.
