Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/27/94, p.52) - 3 1/2 Stars - Good Plus - "....when the Whigs' dense, near-symphonic blast...coalesces with their brooding intensity, they tug at the heartstrings in ways not much late-period punk rock does..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/1/93, p.56) - "...lyrically, the album's a downer, but the brooding intensity of these anthems-for-the-alienated is as addictive as cheap drugs..."

Q (8/96, p.132) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...GENTLEMEN is the band's best album: Dulli's lyrics are sexy, Rick McCollum's guitar work is relatively free of indie cliche and the songs strike sparks off one another....it was Dulli letting down his...armour which showed the most heart..."

Q (11/93, p.113) - 3 Stars - Good - "...GENTLEMEN augments [the Afghan Whigs'] reputation for making music of serrated sorrowfulness....at [the Afghan Whigs'] best, their's is a musical madness to be compared with the clattering, majestic melancholy of Buffalo Tom..."

Alternative Press (5/01, p.104) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Breakup Albums" - "...In GENTLEMEN's universe, relationships crumble, than drag on too long, and the answer is often self-destruction..."

Melody Maker (1/1/94, p.76) - Ranked #2 in Melody Maker's list of the `Albums Of The Year' for 1993 - "...Like the Stones at their best, stuff to get your fingers sticky in...."

Musician (11/93, p.86) - "...GENTLEMEN is full of what makes the band interesting--odd, ambling guitars and Greg Dulli's skewed songwriting--but a warmer, more dynamic sound serves the record well...."

Village Voice (3/1/94, p.5) - Ranked #17 in the Village Voice's 1993 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.

NME (Magazine) (10/9/93, p.39) - (9) - Excellent Plus - "...GENTLEMEN is one long guilt purge...[it] towers above all the others..."

NME (Magazine) (12/25/93, p.66) - Ranked #20 in New Musical Express' list of `The Top 50 LPs Of 1993' - "...Grunge was officially proclaimed dead but Cincinatti's Afghan Whigs had been preparing the grave for the past two years...."
