lanegan’s wistful melancholia feeds on rock, Americana, krautrock; whatever it needs to express these vital songs in his trademark aged-gravel voice: wonderful.

a more expansive progression from the moody Krautrock-influenced electronica textures of his recent albums, these songs have a pure quality like they were beamed directly from his psyche onto tape. “I don’t know if I’m just kidding myself or what, but it’s definitely easier now to make something that is satisfying to me.” there’s a significant up-shift in the swaggering powerlode of such keynote songs as ‘Nocturne’ & ‘Beehive’, while the lyrics’ tonal palette is more varied. ‘Beehive’, for instance, is a thrilling biker anthem, riffed up & reverberant to the hilt, but you can sense that Lanegan’s eyebrow is firmly arched throughout. ‘Old Swan’ is ‘Gargoyle's’ perfect finale: a pulsing incantation, an epic hymn to the life that's lived.
