Mark Lanegan’s first solo album is back on the streets again. The Winding Sheet dates back to 1990, when Lanegan was still immersed in the murky heart of grunge with Screaming Trees. His solo work mixes the dark weight of that music with a true songwriter’s dramatic touch. The Winding Sheet features a guest appearance from Kurt Cobain, and this Sub Pop reissue includes an extra track.

Something about Lanegan's weathered, beaten-down voice is so chilling. Especially such songs as "Museum" and "Winding Sheet" his hoarse, deep rasp rises to a yearning wailing that is beautiful in a rugged way. This being his first album, production isn't top notch and some of the songs I could really do without. All of that which is good is nothing short of amazing. His voice is most often accompanied modestly by Dinosaur Jr guitarist Mike Johnson. Though this sounds a bit sparse in comparison to Lanegan's more recent work it is just as good.
