It's just a fact that Mark Lanegan makes every song sound better. A few years ago, the former Screaming Trees frontman was a surprise hit when he lent his signature sandpaper croon to Queens of the Stone Age; now he has the same kind of guest-vocalist gig with the Greg Dulli-led Twilight Singers, a band that specializes in gorgeous layers of dark, melodic pop strung together with dense and creative song structures. Although ex-Afghan Whig Dulli's talents have long been overshadowed by his reputation as a weird genius who's just a little too obsessed with the dark side of life and love, his skills — combined with Lanegan's presence — make the Twilight Singers an unstoppable force.
