Mark Lanegan Band
Bubblegum (Beggars Banquet)

By: Mike SOS

The subdued sounds of melancholic rock never sounded as bleak as when Mark Lanegan takes to the microphone, and the somber songwriter's latest, the 15-track Bubblegum is no exception. On the erstwhile Screaming Trees singer's latest solo effort, (dubbed the Mark Lanegan Band), some of Lanegan's noteworthy friends and Desert Session collaborators join in, such as PJ Harvey, Queens of the Stone Age, Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin, Burning Brides, and more, to lay down some sorrow. From the sad cowboy blues of "Wedding Dress" to "Sideways in Reverse", the album's only real upbeat, rocking endeavor, Lanegan and company have created a rollicking, riveting album that those on the edge shouldn't go near.
