We gave it an A-

Johnny Dowd’s spare, haunting ’97 debut was rife with gothic-blues murder ballads. On Pictures From Life’s Other Side, Dowd and his Beefheartian country-rock band flesh out his stunning side-show tales of tortured love and irretrievably lost souls. A stalker warbles a chilling ditty to his beloved. A father botches his suicide. Pictures is as dark and compelling as the woods on All Hallows’ Eve.
