Let's Take The Money And Run

Maurice Sendak once said the greatest compliment he ever received was when he responded to a child's fan letter with an original drawing of a Wild Thing and the kid's mom later wrote him and said that he liked the drawing so much he ate it. I know exactly how he feels. I want to eat this new Afghan Whigs album, because it's just that good. If you haven't followed Dulli's career through Twilight Singers, solo stuff, and Gutter Twins you obviously live under a rock, but if you're a fan of his off-kilter swagger, this album is for you. For a first listen, try "Matamoros" or "Lost In The Woods" -- classic Afghan Whigs material. For something different, check out the first single "Algiers" along with it's awesome video. If you're more into Twilight Singers then "It Kills" is for you. There's isn't a bad track one. I want to eat them all. Nom nom nom.
