I don't have any of their material but have been told to invest in Uncle Anesthesia.
is really the only one I go back to with any regularity. Great album that.
actually maybe Sweet Oblivion. either of those two.
If you haven't got into Mark Lanegan's solo stuff you really ought to as well.
try Lanegan's EP 'Here Comes That Weird Chill' too.
But there is a good reason Dust is the most popular ST album - ie. that it is freakish. Buy that.
To summarise, it should go like this:
Dust --> Sweet Oblivion --> Buzz Factory -- Uncle Anesthesia
Then some of the earlier stuff if you're still hungry for more Trees. And you really should be.
Uncle Anesthesia is mostly turgid shite.
Sweet Oblivion is a really solid commercial belter.
Haven't got any of the earlier stuff.
Lanegan's artistic peak was his solo album Whiskey For The Holy Ghost.
And very well deserved.
Just.... <3 <3 <3
I love that organ solo way more than I ever thought a man could possibly love an organ solo.
