Uncut

4 Stars - Adam Sweeting Afghan Whigs frontman remains on the wild side. Greg Dulli describes this new collection of material as “extremely autobiographical”, not least the gruelling drug-dealer saga of “Forty Dollars”, and there’s no escaping the nagging...

The Sun (UK)

Rating: 5 Grunge survivor Greg Dulli sings “I’ve come a long way” on the menacing “My Time (Has Come).” Too right. Listening to this intense, personal affair, you sense a man who has lived on the darker edes of...

The Skinny (UK)

Rating: 5 ‘S’s They say that in forensic science, powder burns are analyzed to determine the distance between a victim and the weapon that killed him. On the fourth Twilight Singers LP, they’re littered all over Greg Dulli’s crime scene...

Metro Times Detroit

by MacKenzie Wilson Since debuting with the Afghan Whigs exactly 20 years ago, Greg Dulli has remained passionate but conflicted, with a twisted heart that thrives on lust, sex and suffering. He’s also a gritty soul singer who happens to...

Harp Magazine

The Afghan Whigs were one of the 1990s’ most improbable successes—pregrunge, postpunk rock band with a soul subtext and the cojones to play it straight. After the Whigs’ official dissolution in 2001, frontman Greg Dulli remained visible, fronting the Twilight...

Drowned in Sound

Rating: 9/10 Nick Cowen Redemption has to be hard-won if it’s to mean anything at all, and whether he knows it or not, Greg Dulli has been proponent of this credo for pretty much all of his career. Back when...

OC Register

Twilight Singers, “Powder Burns” (One Little Indian) - All the sonic ennui that former Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli has brought to this project of intense atmosphere but heretofore little substance has been shed, along with his drug addiction. Recording...

Reno Gazette

Four stars (out of four) On “Powder Burns,” Greg Dulli’s The Twilight Singers present an accessible, cohesive classic while exploring Dulli’s struggle with demons of addiction. Dulli’s mastery of his voice has reached new heights, from the smooth, then pained...

Washington Post

PARTIALLY RECORDED in a post-Katrina New Orleans, the Twilight Singers’ “Powder Burns” reacts to a catastrophe that singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Greg Dulli almost seems to welcome. Not that the musician, who came to prominence in the 1990s with Cincinnati’s...

Amplifier Magazine

So maybe Greg Dulli’s story won’t have the tragic ending I personally resigned to believing it would. No, he has seen the light at the end of the tunnel and not the blinding light finale from the sky above. His...

Avoid Peril

Way back before the turn of the century, when I was barely out of high school, I had this friend we’ll refer to as “Todd.” Todd was a good 8 years older than me, which means that while I was...

Prefix Magazine

Opening a record with the lyric “The sun don’t shine ’round here no more” provides no shock to longtime fans of Greg Dulli. Though the Afghan Whigs were pegged as one of the more comical rock bands of the 1980s...

Calgary Sun

Rating: 3.5/5 The older you get, the harder to seduce. And the less you attempt it. It’s just easier not to and the returns are usually less exciting. But what of the Seducer — the one whose life has been...

75 or Less

Greg Dulli lays down more of his rock/soul trademark sounds on all 12 tracks of Powder Burns. You aren’t hearing anything new on this record, but that’s not a big deal since Dulli’s been writing great songs since his Afghan...

Atlanta Sunday Paper

It sounds ridiculous to say so, but Greg Dulli puts the sex and drugs into rock ‘n’ roll. Now, of course, these elements were always supposed to go hand in hand, but the indie-rock scene that birthed his old band,...

Naples Daily News

By Jon Foerster Greg Dulli is something of a rock ‘n’ roll alchemist. One part spit and swagger, two parts wall of guitars and one part soul is the recipe he’s blended together countless times, first with the Afghan Whigs...

Winnipeg Sun

4 stars When Greg Dulli says, “I’m alive — It kinda took me by surprise,” you know he’s not kidding. Or the only one surprised. One of rock’s most notorious and unrepentant users, the former Afghan Whigs frontman now says...

El Paso Scene

As leader of Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli’s output consisted of a new album about every three years. He now heads up the Twilight Singers, and he seems to have switched over to autopilot as the years mount. The band has...

In the three years between Twilight Singers albums, frontman Greg Dulli (ex-Afghan Whigs) kicked a long-standing drug addiction and witnessed the destruction of his adopted hometown of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. Not surprisingly, Powder Burns is the Singers’ most...

Alternative Press

[Rating: 4/5] Album No. 4 from Greg Dulli’s other band was almost literally born in the eye of a hurricane. The tapes had to be rescued from a New Orleans studio after Hurricane Katrina hit, and the former Afghan Whigs...

Columbus Alive

Twilight Singers has always been kind of a misnomer. Since the days of the Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli’s music has been better suited for after midnight, the perfect soundtrack for the culmination of intense flirtation or dirty deeds done dirt-cheap....

Y-Rock on XPN

As neo-Brit-pop and then grunge gained momentum through the late 1980s and early 1990s, left behind in their wake were many acts that earned plenty of critical acclaim without attendant commercial success. Greg Dulli began The Twilight Singers as a...
