Critical acclaim for Phantom Radio, the previous album from Mark Lanegan Band, released late 2014:

“Lanegan deserves elevation to the front rank of rock artists and Phantom Radio may be the album to finally force that shift.” The Independent – 5 Stars ***** (Album Of The Week)

“A brave inspired step into the unknown.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Like Lee Hazlewood were performing early-80s New Order.” Q – 4 Stars ****

“A beautiful set that balances Lanegan’s ongoing love of blues and folk with further explorations of the electronic terrain he explored on 2012’s Blues Funeral.” Uncut – 8/10

“A graceful record that brings out the very best in the gruff veteran.” NME – 8/10

“A career highlight… The Superb ‘Floor Of The Ocean’ could be the Sisters Of Mercy covering Joy Division, while ‘Torn Red Heart’ might be the most beautiful love song Lanegan has ever recorded.” The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“Phantom Radio proves that there’s not just mileage left in him still, but that he’s going to lead us to many more places yet.” DIY – 4 Stars ****

“These songs are compelling, bleak, bruising and brilliantly realised… A compelling return.” The Sun – 4 Stars ****

“Phantom Radio builds on the electro leanings of 2012’s Blues Funeral, taking us back to the gloomier bits of the 1980s, with the transitional Joy Division/New Order a reference point.”

The Sunday Times (Album Of The Week)

“His voice, if anything, is getting better with age – grittier by the year and more soulful… There’s no faking this kind of quality.” Classic Rock – 8/10

“Rich in blood, sweat and atmospherics… With no sign of any creative let-up as he approaches his 50th birthday, its time to tune in and feel the spirit.” The Mirror – 4 Stars ****
