CRITIC REVIEWS

After eight years of bending the material of others towards his magnetic presence, Blues Funeral represents Lanegan on his own terms.

85
The 405

One of grunge’s most iconic vocalists has delivered an album of truly impressive variety, power and quality.

82
Beats Per Minute

Mark Lanegan has accomplished something truly magnificent with Blues Funeral.

80
PopMatters

As he enters his fourth decade as a performer Mark Lanegan is undoubtedly operating at the top of his game.

70
Consequence of Sound

Blues Funeral is a creative and fitting nudge out of the comfortable shadows and back into the harsh spotlight

60
Drowned in Sound

The end result is a record for ardent fans and not casual admirers.

60
No Ripcord

As powerful a tool as his voice is, you can’t escape the feeling that he’s holding something back.

59
Pitchfork

... it also makes you wish he went even further on Blues Funeral, so it could risk spectacular failure rather than mild disappointment.

43
A.V. Club

The singer has done something few probably expected of him at this point: made a blatant and lackluster attempt to keep up with the times.
