this record challenges us to unpack its dark metaphors & spectral imagery, through swirling, intoxicating rock textures – it left us feeling slightly unclean, but utterly ecstatic.

On the one hand, this is as quintessentially Afghan Whigs as anything the group has ever done – fulfilling its original mandate to explore the missing link between howling Midwestern punk like Die Kreuzen & Hüsker Dü, The Temptations’ psychedelic soul symphonies, & the expansive hard-rock tapestries of Led Zeppelin & Lynyrd Skynyrd. The joys, sorrows, & upheavals of innocence & experience echo throughout ‘In Spades’: it powerfully documents where The Afghan Whigs have been, & where they might go next. “a thrillingly impassioned addition to their catalogue, notable not only for its belters […] but also [those] where [dulli’s] vulnerable side is crucially exposed, with spare violin & piano” 8/10 – uncut.
