Those who were prepared to write Dulli off will be pleasantly surprised by the about-face on Blackberry Belle. The singer/songwriter emerges with his strongest, most emphatically defiant record since the Whigs' nearly flawless Black Love. He scavenges the rotting corpses of doomed relationships and the lingering regrets of one-night stands, cloaking all in his trademark callous cool. Dulli resurrects some of the shadowy soul (sans the tedium) of Twilight as well, adding a touch of sophistication that some charged was lacking on the Afghan's albums.
"St. Gregory" slowly yet insistently creeps to its conclusion, doused in strings and Dulli's undulating croon, while "The Killer" tempers familiar, Whigs-ish crescendos with ivory-kissed, jazzy interludes. Throughout, Dulli strikes a compelling balance, perched between the tightly wound fury of the Whigs and a yearning blues of his own design.
