The Afhgan Whigs’ fifth album, 1996’s Black Love, as its title implies, is a dark look at matters of the heart. As much film-noir fantasy as serrated knife twist to the gut, Black Love contains atmospheric anthems that make the world seem an unsafe place at any speed. “Crime Scene Part One” begins things with a somber tonal build, singer-songwriter Greg Dulli mumbling his words at the onset only to explode at the three-minute mark into a declaration of sorts: “Tonight, tonight I say goodbye to everything that thrills me.” Dulli’s voice never stabilizes on a note but warbles in grief. However, it’s the ominous guitar weave between Dulli and Rick McCollum that brings these songs to life. “My Enemy” features stabbing chords. “Double Day” strokes gently behind a narcissistic rant. “Blame, Etc.” begins with funk and slinks into ambient while “Honky’s Ladder” twists with riffs that straddle between heavy metal and funk, as love becomes an action film rife with danger. Black Love is an album of anthemic tension where nothing is ever resolved and the struggle goes on forever.
