Gutter Twins

Saturnalia 2xLP

Sub Pop SP761, released March 2008

I consider the Gutter Twins to be an unfinished project. It has some potential, but as of their first album, it is yet to be fully realized. Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan, as a pair, could only have gone two ways: inseparability or utter catastrophe. Both have had penchants for hard drugs and dependency during their careers. One could easily imagine a joint effort between the two ending in disaster. For the moment, it has gone the other way. I would swear that these two have been inching towards codependency. This, however, has not manifested in the music.

Saturnalia is a solid first effort. However, it sounds much less like an integration of Dulli's and Lanegan's styles than half a Dulli album and half a Lanegan album. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It is what it is. It's fitting that the two returned to Sub Pop after so many years. Double LP on black vinyl and getting more expensive.
