The demo version of this album had been floating around for years before
it was finally unleashed on the marketplace. It was mostly recorded
in 1997, prior to the final Afghan Whigs album, 1965. It
shows. Twilight was basically the goodbye before the rebirth of
1965. There were a couple of new songs recorded in 2000, and most of
the existing 1997 songs were enhanced and remixed by Fila Brazillia prior
to their release.
This album represented a very different sound from any other Dulli
project, mainly due to the prominence of Shawn Smith and Harold Chichester.
This project was a rocky one from the start. As Dulli once indicated
in an interview, when you put three lead singers together in a studio, bad
things happen. Dulli and Shawn Smith had a particularly bad falling
out, and basically did not speak for a decade (well, at least, they had
nothing to do with each other publicly until Smith made a guest appearance
during a Dulli solo show in late 2007).
Dulli assembled a band for a brief tour to support the album, but ended
up hating the tour and really never connecting with the band. That's
a shame, because at the end of the day, this album contained a high
concentration of truly beautiful songs.
Released exclusively on cd, because that's pretty
much what was happening with major labels in 2000.
