Well into a career of stoking misery's emotive fires, Greg Dulli and his Afghan Whigs launch into another album that plays like a movie. Appropriately, BLACK LOVE's thematic lyrics, its noire-ish rock-meets-soul styles, and its cover-art are like a grab-bag of clues, depicting the darker side of the human condition. The opening track, "Crime Scene Part One," is one tip-off, the burning sticks of incense are another--both are hints at the indefinite, smoldering and depraved natures of the album's characters.
