Mark Lanegan, The Winding Sheet
Label: Sub Pop Records

Mark Lanegan's band, Screaming Trees, were already four albums deep into their run as grunge forefathers (and eventual also-rans) when The Winding Sheet was released. But the churn and grind of that Seattle band is nowhere to be found on their frontman's solo debut. That dank, magisterial croak, one of rock's most expressive, devastating instruments, is on full display on The Winding Sheet, an album that would predict Lanegan's career arc far more accurately… read more »
