9/10 gbar 16th August 2017

In only a few short years, The Afghan Whigs went from being a decent midwestern rock band who showed some potential to probably one of the best, if not the best thing ever to be a part of Sub Pop. This achievement was personified by 1992's Congregation, which can be seen as a hybrid of Up in It and Gentlemen. What made it stand out upon its release was just how diverse it was in its mixture of styles, as the band served up funky offerings such as "Turn on the Water" and "Miles iz Ded". They even toyed with odd time signature rockers, especially on "I'm Her Slave" and even had a go with an Andrew Lloyd Webber cover ("The Temple" from Jesus Christ Superstar). And the production is much more polished and balanced than their previous efforts, giving Congregation a much better overall sound. This is where the Afghan Whigs finally showed their full capabilities, and they somehow managed to get even better after this one.
