Amoeba Review

01/13/2014

For an artist whose catalog has been as quietly long running as Mark Lanegan’s, a compilation album is a godsend. For new listeners, it gives an easy entry to Lanegan’s excellent, early solo albums, like his rocking 1990 album The Winding Sheet, released while he was still the frontman for Screaming Trees and showing the influence Lanegan had on artists like Nirvana. Lanegan has been releasing solo material for so long that it would be tempting to picture Has God Seen My Shadow as scattershot or formative, however, the picks here really do a service to Lanegan’s legacy by showing how solid his sound is—simple, unfussy arrangements dusted by Western touches, giving Lanegan’s gravely, romantic vocals ample room to swing—and how it has evolved over time. Early songs like “Pendulum” stand out as outliers from the grungey early ’90s, while the later material, particularly from 2001’s Field Songs and 2004’s Bubblegum, echo grit and grace, as on the haunting duet with PJ Harvey, “Come to Me.” A disc of bonus material adds extra padding to an already strong body of work, largely stark, acoustic numbers that pare back even further Lanegan’s spare, dreamy sound. It’s an embarrassment of riches for Lanegan fans both new and old.
