...and I'm only once through it. I'll keep this short & sweet. If you're a fan of Lanegan/the Trees, you know who you are. IGNORE, repeat ignore, the apathetic Pitchfork review, or whatever other hipster nonsense you may stumble across on the fabled ol' interwebs. This is spectacular. It's like a culmination of everything Lanegan's ever done, kinda like Tom Waits' latest was like a run through of everything he'd ever tried all on one album. Blues Funeral has everything you loved from the Trees days, everything from Bubblegum, everything from Scraps...you get the picture. His voice, his ultimate instrument, gets richer with each passing year, and these songs really stick. They are instantly memorable, they pack a punch; they are, to quote a review of something I read years ago, I can't remember what, a case of instant-just-can't-get-enough. There's even some freaky 80's style new wave thrown in. It's Mark's most confident and intoxicating work in years; that's saying something indeed. If you're a fan, don't hesitate. Just dive in. You'll thank me for it.

A great, solid blues vehicle. A couple of cuts felt a little dark, but once I got into it after a few listens it grew very infectious. Worthy.
