Album Review

With 1965, the Afghan Whigs finally made the gritty soul record just always out of their reach — seamlessly integrating the R&B aspirations which have textured the band's sound since the beginning, the music simmers with raw energy, its deep, dark grooves not so much white-boy as simply white-hot. Recorded in New Orleans, the album is plainly the product of its environment — sultry, sleazy, and more than a little menacing; here more than ever, Greg Dulli is the frontman you love to hate, strutting and swaggering his way through standout tracks like "Something Hot," "Uptown Again," and "John the Baptist" with predatory aggression. (Who else would deliver a lyric like "I got the devil in me, girl" as though it were a pickup line?) Still, for all its cocksure arrogance, 1965 is nevertheless a sincere tribute to the classic music recalled by the album's title — lyrics aside, even if Dulli did sell his soul, he's somehow managed to get it all back.

Customer Reviews

Simply Masterful!

Greg Dulli captures all the emotions felt between a man and a woman. Songs 1, 2, & 5 are it. Crazy is the best song ever ....period. This band is simply unbelievable and they deserve at least a double click on your mouse.

One of the best of all time

This is one of the best all around albums of all time. Melodic. Heartfelt. But fighting in spirit. This is the album that made me a Whigs and Duli fan. Buy it.

First Whigs record I heard...

A co-worker of mine lent me this album. I popped the disc in my cd player and I wound up playing this album four times in the space of the next few hours. It makes you wanna get up out of your seat and dance until your feet bleed. I discovered their earlier stuff not long after. What a great band this was, and quite frankly, still is.

Evolving from a garage punk band in the vein of the Replacements, Dinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney to a literate, pretentious, soul-inflected post-punk quartet, the Afghan Whigs were one of the most critically acclaimed alternative bands of the early '90s. Although the band never broke into the mainstream, it developed a dedicated cult following, primarily because of lead singer/songwriter Greg Dulli's tortured, angst-ridden tales of broken relationships and self-loathing. The Afghan Whigs were one of...
