 Notes & Reviews
One of the greatest, dark albums of 2008.
- Mariusz Osyra, 09/30/2008, Poland

Saturnalia is the anticipated first album from The Gutter Twins, the collaboration forged in late 2003 by Mark Lanegan and fellow maverick singer/songwriter Greg Dulli. Saturnalia finds the axis Dulli nicknamed 'the Satanic Everly Brothers' going even deeper into the shadows than ever before. Mystical, unpredictable, ultimately masterful, the album both embodies and defies any expectations suggested by the principals' individual notoriety. Pointedly not resting on the sonic laurels of their previous successes, Saturnalia instead proves rootsy but Baroque, handmade yet modernist, teeming with siren melodies that don't resolve. Produced by Dulli and Lanegan along with the band's unofficial third member Mathias Schneeberger.
