Product Description

Mark Lanegan releases his brand new album 'Bubblegum' on August 2nd 2004 in the UK, & August 10th in the US. Musical assistance on 'Bubblegum' comes from luminaries including Queen Of The Stone Age bandmates Joshua Homme & Nick Oliveri, PJ Harvey (who provides vocals on 'Hit The City' & 'Come To Me'), Izzy Stradlin & Duff McKagan from Guns & Roses/Velvet Revolver, Afghan Whigs & Twilight Singers' Greg Dulli, Ween's Dean Ween, Eleven's Alain Johannes & Masters of Reality's Chris Goss (guitar) amongst others. The album was produced by Mark Lanegan, with assistance from Chris Goss & Alain Johannes.

Bubblegum is Mark Lanegan's sixth solo album, but still he's relatively unknown to all but a few. Since going solo, the former Screaming Trees frontman has attracted a cult following, but if a man can be judged by the stature of his friends, then surely Bubblegum marks the beginning of Lanegan's turn in the spotlight. Featuring such high-profile guests as PJ Harvey ("Hit the City" and "Come to Me"), Guns N' Roses/Velvet Revolver's Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan ("Strange Religion"), Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers' frontman Greg Dulli ("Methamphetamine Blues"), and Masters of Reality's Chris Goss (who shares production credits, as well as appearing on a number of tracks), the songs on Bubblegum display a breadth of style that matches Lanegan's trademark depth of substance. And though he kept his profile comparatively low as a longterm collaborator with Queens of the Stone Age, his two bandmates Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri feature heavily throughout (Homme, in particular, plays guitar or drums on five of the tracks here). But this is by no means a QOTSA album. Bubblegum has a sound all its own, and Lanegan is firmly at the helm, with his gravelly voice and somber observations making him sound more and more like Tom Waits. Its pleasures may not be immediate to all listeners, but once found, they're difficult to shake. --Robert Burrow

Lanegan is a man of many "phases." As a matter of fact, you may be reading this review either because of his work with Screaming Tress, his haunting and stripped down Americana solo output, or his recent singing contributions to Queens Of The Stone Age, have interested you enough to see what our boy is up to here.

The good news here is that Lanegan, rather than "returning" or "departing" from what you may be used to, has brought all of it together into a an intense boil, and come out of it with a powerful collection of songs that will offer immediate, if different, favorites for everyone.

In addition to this, the list of musicians called on to help his efforts is quite impressive and likely to make you salivate, even before the album starts playing. Whether it is PJ Harvey, Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers' mastermind Greg Dulli, or Josh Homme -from QOFTA- to name only the ones I was most excited about and intrigued by for what they may add to this album, their contributions are a major plus to "Bubblegum'"s sound.

Speaking of "bubblegum" -a reference from a line in the song "Bombed"-Lanegan could not sound farther from what that word may make you expect. Actually, he sounds closer to Tom Waits than ever before, a similar tone yet not ever trying to imitate Tom, and he phrases his words in ways that remind me -at least me- of the dark sensuality of Jim Morrison.

The reference to Morrison may be more apparent on "When Your Number Isn't Up," and ominous and prophetic slow tune about mortality, or "Wedding Dress," as dark a "love song" as you can expect.

As far as Lanegan ability to bring into a single album everything he's explored musically in the past, I'd like to name some of the remaining tunes.

I haven't really given Mark Lanegan much of a thought since the Screaming Trees "Dust." It seems that I should have. Bubblegum is a fine album evoking both 60's acid rock (as the Screaming Trees often did) and more out there artists like Tom Waits. The fact that Lanegan measures favorably with Waits instead of as a second rate copy speaks is very impressive. This is a very diverse album with some great rock songs in Hit the City and Driving Death Valley Blues, lots of late night atmospherics, and a wonderful duet with PJ Harvey on Come To Me.

Bubblegum is worth your attention.

I just, finally, discovered Mark Lanegan -his solo work- after so much time. I regret that I didn't do it earlier. I just can't see how I survived without his music. And it's hard to understand why he's not well known outside the fanbase of QOTSA and The 'Trees. I've been listening to Queens of The Stone Age for some time. And then some Screaming Trees. I finally decided to check out Lanegans' solo efforts and I'm just taken aback at the huge amount of great music and incredibly great lyrics he's produced. I really loved The Screaming Trees 'Dust' album, but his solo efforts are better. Not to be compared really, but it is apparent that he really is in his right element with his bluesier material. Lanegan is, most certainly, one of the few great songwriters. And his collaborations with P.J. Harvey are so beautiful and perfect!

Mark Lanegan sings like he means every single solitary syllable. The new CD, Bubblegum is like buying an E ticket to the best sideshow you are ever going to experience.

The lyrics are as deep as the deepest coal mine on the planet. Each song tells a story and if you take the time the tales he tells are often so real they hurt. Most of the stories are troubled and true. With every solo work Lanegan has produced you get the feeling that you are looking, feeling and hearing things that are on a truely personal level. Drug addiction, worry, death, trying, failing, hope, fear, love... you name it and Lanegan can piece together a tale that will bring you in, sit you down, and make you understand. Bubblegum is no exception. He truly has a gift. That is why I have every Lanegan solo,album and every Screaming Trees lp(yes...lp's) since Clairvoyance. I have seen the Screaming Trees live. It was a sight. Intense. I saw QOTSA (Kyuss was ok) but I went to see Lanegan. Daisy Theatre in Memphis, Tenn. When Lanegan came on stage the temperature and mood in the room changed! He has that ability. The people in the audience who had been rocking to QOTSA took a step back and then eased forward looking at each other and thinking "What is this"? The side conversations stopped, people payed attention. Lanegan held on to the mike stand with both hands like it was the last solid object on the earth and let fly. One of the best damn singer/songwriters ever!

Listening to Lanegan continues to create unique listening experiences. He comes off as both a wise sage who has come to guide you through some dangerous place, and yet he also comes off as one of the rogues that makes the place dangerous. He encourages listeners to have patience in life and to wait for their ship to come in ("one hundred days"), then tempts the audience to give in and give up, to hide, and not care about anything ("Bombed"). Bubblegum and Field Songs are great albums. Albums that grow on you (and maybe in you). Thank You Mark
