Descripción del producto
Descripción del producto
"Blues Funeral es el nuevo disco de Mark Lanegan, el primero que graba desde Bubblegum, de 2004.
El disco ha sido producido en Hollywood, California, por Alain Johannes en su 11ad studio. La instrumentación corre a cargo de Johannes y Jack Irons, con colaboraciones de Greg Dulli, Josh Homme y compañía.
Mark Lanegan ha cantado con Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age, Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins, Soulsavers e Isobel Campbell. Reside en Los Angeles y tiene dos perros.
A falta de pares contemporaneos, se hace necesario recurrir a los más grandes a la hora de entrar en comparaciones. En una de sus canciones más famosas, Leonard Cohen confesaba sentirse como si oyese a Hank Williams tosiendo unos cien pisos más arriba"". Con Blues Funeral, Lanegan se ha ganado su lugar en esa Torre de la Canción. Bienvenidos al Infierno"".

The biggest surprise is the increased integration of electronic textures and synth-pop influence. This works particularly well on the mesmerising 'Ode to Sad Disco' and the darkly upbeat `Harborview Hospital'. Elsewhere Lanegan delves into more familiar territory on the brooding, bluesy balladry of `Phantasmagoria Blues' and the sublime `St Louis Elegy'. `Riot in my House' is a delightfully raucous rocker with an inspired guest appearance by guitarist Joshua Homme. `Quiver Syndrome' follows a similarly rockier path, while `Gray goes Black' is shady pop-rock brilliance. The varied instrumentation and rich dynamics are complimented by an inspired collection of genuinely memorable, engaging songs.
The gloomy atmosphere of Blues Funeral; and its accompanying lyrical bent of dark imagery, despair and regret is offset by a lilting sense of hope and redemption, maintaining a darker edge without sounding depressing or one-dimensional. Lanegan has created one of his most accomplished efforts; an album that transcends genres and trends, carving its own unique path of musical growth, artistic integrity and gritty resolve. Blues Funeral is destined to become a modern classic.
It all quicks off with verve on the pounding blues of "The Gravediggers Song" with almost an Adam Ant style drum back beat and a brooding vocal so nasty that social services should be called. Throughout there are a range of cracking songs and the classic blues motif spread over the six minutes plus of "Bleeding Muddy Waters" is one of those. "St Louis Elegy" is a beautifully dark beast with a feast of ferocious imagery while that is clearly a Visage style disco beat lurking inthe backdrop of the excellent "Grey goes black". As you can tell it really is difficult to single out any songs for special praise since there is strength in depth here and taken as a whole set Lanegan barely puts a foot wrong. "Riot in my house" for example echoes the best rocking preoccupations of the Screaming Trees and what higher recommendation do you need? One of the longest tracks here "Ode to a Sad Disco" could be profitably covered by Donna Summer and it would be equally great, it has that sort of pounding synth electronica combined with high melody which New Order once patented. At over six minutes it passes at great speed and shows an artist prepared to take risks and not so much rest on his laurels as burn them. By the time the standout long concluding track "Tiny grain of truth" ends the album in a mix of first class acoustic blues and concludes in a wave of synths you know you have been on one of the more interesting musical journeys on a "Deep Black Vanishing Train" in quite a long time and you have thankful that Lanegan picked you up at the station. Add to this that in songs like the "Quiver Syndrome" he displays a ear for melody which would take any other artist in the direction of the album chart top ten and squat there for age.
There is enough musical variety in "Blues Funeral" to stage the album in the Radio City Music Hall. It is gritty, exciting, threatening and shows this great singer on top of his game. This is an album that grabs you by the collars on your first listen and eyeballs you to ensure your full attention. It is time well spent for this album deserves tractor loads of praise and a generous potion of hyperbole. How many singers do you know who can can away with a line like "if tears were liquor/I'd have drunk myself sick" and yet you know that he sings this with the raw honesty of a man who has ridden the emotional and chemical roller coaster yet emerged the other side all the better a musician for it. The musical stakes are raised for 2012.
I love the lyrics and the way he puts himself into the songs in a masculine bluesy fashion. Most of the "death metal " groups that deal with the same subject matter have weak vocalists compared to Lanegan. I dig it....and I know that many people may find it depressing but I find it life affirming. The theme of blood, death and loss are true to the facts. That's the way it is.....this album and this kind of music makes me appreciate life and my loved ones all the more....like going to the blue church. As mentioned by other reviewers here, the music supporting Lanegan's singing is just terrific. It's different from his other solo work and the more I listen to it the more I like it. Very talented group of musicians. The funeral arrangement on the cover is a very nice touch.
The album "Broken" by the Soulsavers with Lanegan on most of the lead vocals is another gem, if you like this one. Check it out...
