Product Description

Amazon.com

After coming into his own as a solo artist with 1994's wistfully sad and musically assured Whiskey for the Holy Ghost, ex-Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan has let his work stagnate somewhat. Scraps at Midnight and the cover-song collection I'll Take Care of You were both excellent efforts, but lacked the punch of Whiskey, which suggested that a new voice was emerging from the ashes of an overlooked band's lamentable demise. This fifth solo effort, however, shows flashes of another growth spurt. Lanegan has never written anything as gentle and compositionally mature as "Kimiko's Dream House," for instance, nor has any of his records ever had this level of consistency, from bourbon-soaked blues to haunted, late-night roots rock. Furthermore, his band, featuring ex-Dinosaur Jr. member Mike Johnson on guitar and Ben Shepherd from the late, great Soundgarden on bass, has solidified, effortlessly veering between eerie soundscapes and somber evocations that form perfect backdrops for Lanegan's familiar smoky growl. Next time you feel like having a late-night chat with a friend named Jack Daniels, let this play in the background as a conversation starter, then draw your own conclusions about how affecting and perceptive Lanegan's work has become. --Matthew Cooke

Field Songs is Lanegan's best and most accessible record.
F. Rizo
This flows effortlessly into an archetypal Lanegan slow-burner in "Miracle", a shift in mood and atmosphere that is both bold and highly successful.
Tom Chase
This is highly recommended for anyone with a cool taste in music.

There have been a couple of instances where I've almost bought this CD but somehow doubted it being anywhere near as good as WHISKEY FOR THE HOLY GHOST. After listening to the new QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and the before mentioned Lanegan release I felt inclined to check this album out. The first two songs especially NO EASY ACTION; a traveling gypsy caravan moving through rolling hills of gold in blood red sun. Amazing. I felt like the music was getting me high. You can really see the range in this guy's voice on this song which is on some of his previous works a bit to subdued. The backing band of musicians is different from song to song but mainly keeps Mike Johnson as his right hand man at guitar (whom plays on, I think, every other Lanegan album) whom plays great but just enough so that the vocals shine through. Besides Johnson there are many other competent musicians making Lanegan's lyrics of barren, melancholy imagery and landscapes appear tangible in the mind of the listener. The music is so atmospheric he reminds me alot of Tom Waits, not neccessarily in musical style but the approach with very thick, layered sounds and instruments that make you feel as you are in the world of the musician. Also, the obvious parallel in the raspy vocals the two singers share There is an immense depth of feeling created by the music alone as can be heard in the instrumental piece BLUES FOR D. The whole album is beautiful and shifts mainly from folk/rhythm-and-blues songs. Two of my friends bought this album shortly after hearing a few of the songs through my copy of the album. If you like some of the more serious sounding Tom Waits material or have any of Lanegan's other material this is a must have.

Sadly, not enough people will be blessed to have a listen to this record. Then again, sometimes that which is sought out is better than that which is forcefed to us over the airwaves and television sets. This is certainly the case here. Go find this album and become immersed in a world of whiskey stained reflection and melencholy. This is just one of those albums that you feel inside. Upon listening, you soon realize this is more than just pre-fabricated noise. Mark lanegan is definatly a feelings man. Sit back, have a smoke, grab onto your favorite poison and relax. It doesnt get much better than this.

Those familiar with Mark Lanegan's previous outings into brooding folk/blues music will have no surprises with "Field Songs". Combine his sublime whiskey-drenched delivery (which immediately recalls the gravely tones of Tom Waits), a refined understanding of traditional folk and blues and then throw in the rock sensibility of 90s band Screaming Trees and "Field Songs" is the result. Perhaps Lanegan's best album to date with improved and more diverse writing, it still tragically remains an overlooked gem in the realms of singer/songwriter music.

"Field Songs" boasts some of Lanegan's best song writing. "No Easy Action" is a sumptuous flourishing rock song - fashioning very unique vocal harmonies thanks to middle-Eastern styled female vocals sustaining held notes over the top of Lanegan's delivery. This flows effortlessly into an archetypal Lanegan slow-burner in "Miracle", a shift in mood and atmosphere that is both bold and highly successful. "Don't Forget Me" and "Fix" are two of Lanegan's best blues romps, combining strong writing and menacing, gritty vocal performances. "Kimiko's Dream House" is a surprising soft and subtle highlight, and shows Lanegan's diversity as a writer. My personal favourite of the album, and quite possibly my favourite Lanegan song to date, is the stunning "Resurrection Song". The song instantly draws parallels to "Riding The Nightingale" from the album "Whiskey For The Holy Ghost" due to its stripped down atmosphere, focusing solely on guitar and voice, and forging a wonderfully engaging and raw piece.

"Field Songs" showcases a more diverse album than past releases thanks to tracks such as "No Easy Action" and "Kimiko's Dream House". It also refines the trademark Lanegan song, and combines to make a truly wonderful singer/songwriter album I highly recommend.

i'm a sucker for marlboro red smoking whiskey drinking americana, but this goes beyond all that. his voice is rough and dry one minute then noteperfect smooth the next, the guitar is mellow and lets him do the talking. in my opinion this is genuinely beautiful music.

one way street is such a mournfully strong song i never get tired of it.

i wish miracle went on longer, feels like the first verse to a great song.

dont forget me is another brilliant one,

and that work of art called resurrection song is for when you're lying out under the moon staring at stars and floating away, or wandering through fields alone at night when trees are swaying like the hypnotic guitar.

in fact the whole album's brilliant.

if you like music that's mellow and a singer who sounds like he's seen and done almost everything then get it. and get it if you don't cuz this album will convert you.
