Even without taking into account Mark Lanegan’s legendary voice, it shouldn’t be a stretch to call him one of the foremost poets of our time. He’s certainly prolific, having partnered in his post–Screaming Trees career with such disparate acts as Isobel Campbell (Belle and Sebastian) and Queens of the Stone Age. Yet whether he finds himself in a soft Americana setting or heavy stoner metal, his gravelly, beautiful-like-an-oil-slick voice is one that can take the air out of any room. His latest album, Gargoyle, consists of more of the tortured highway blues he seems to favor and abounds with sickeningly beautiful lines like “Wild thing, see the monkey in the jungle swing, canary in the cavern sing, that the devil lives in anything.” TODD HAMM
