Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Released

On Lanegan’s second solo album he reunited with a key collaborator from his first, Mike Johnson, who brought along J Mascis with him to play drums on a couple of songs. Tad Doyle, Screaming Trees vet Mark Pickerel and Mudhoney’s Dan Peters also did some turns on the seat and with various other guests Lanegan created another strong set of vivid and moody songs. The opening twang and atmosphere of “The River Rise” sets the scene while “Riding the Nightingale” and “Shooting Gallery” are stunningly beautiful tracks Lanegan’s singing enriches.
