Laut.de sieht es etwas anders:
So ist "Do To The Beast" die bisherige Krönung des ohnehin hochwertigen Schaffens der Whigs.
Throughout the album, Dulli seems to be treating the band’s own career in the same way he treats an old R&B record: as raw material for his current obsessions. As he nears 50, he’s able not only to play up the rough grain in his voice as he grasps for high notes on “Lost in the Woods”, but also to take in the breadth of his career to date. If his catalog is a car, he’s stripping it of its parts and refashioning something newer, more streetworthy. So Do to the Beast may not always sound like an Afghan Whigs album, but it operates like one, scavenging the darker corners of pop history to create something personal, vital, and urgent.
