However, as anyone who has rabidly followed the work of Belle and Sebastian will know, Isobel Campbell has finally come into her own only in her solo work, as uneven as it may be. While nothing in the future might come close to the freshness of her debut album, her collaborative work with Mark Lanegan has been nothing short of a revelation. Their first album together was nominated for a Mercury Prize (but didn't win), but their second album together, entitled "Sunday at Devil Dirt" was a more complex affair. Halfway through the recording, Isobel learnt that she was without studio support & she literally financed the record on her savings (which at that point was down to zero). Calling it a labor of love in this event is an understatement. The outstanding gem on "Sunday at Devil Dirt" was "Trouble", one of the indie songs of the year, and the album is now deservedly on the lists of all cult music lovers everywhere (most notably in Scotland).
Which brings us to Isobel and Mark's third joint album together. Its a breathtaking work of beauty, on one level, and a rather flat, odd collection of songs, on another. I suppose anyone who has heard Isobel's voice can attest to the fact that her breathy, airy vocals work well on some songs more than on others.Read more ›
So why the mediocre rating, and why so much past tense?
I pre-ordered this album. I was very excited for it to arrive, and it did, 3 or 4 days before it's official street date. I gave it a listen, and experienced the first genuine disappointment I've ever felt with either Lanegan solo or with the Campbell/Lanegan duo. It should have been a warning when I was reading the press for the album, where Campbell said Lanegan had left all the "heavy lifting" to her.Read more ›

I bought it for the Townes Van Zandt covers but all of these songs are great. Now I'm a convert.Published 15 months ago by Leo N Johnson
Like the heading, I like the One song. The cd cover is ok. The rest is mediocre at best, in my judgement.Published on August 20, 2013 by TIM BEAULIER
This is just an incredible CD. For those who do not know, Mark Lanagan was in the band the Screaming Trees. His voice/vocals were amazing then, and have gotten better. Read morePublished on January 3, 2011 by lady alesia
