Son Of Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys

First listen


„It’s to Willner’s credit that, for all their inevitable anachronisms, the Rogues Gallery records don’t devolve into throwaway collections of hedonistic drinking songs or pirate caricatures. They are, above all, tributes to rough living — stories of death and solitude and hardship, both on the high seas and at shore. Like their predecessors in 2006, these 36 songs are often gloomier and more serious than the concept might suggest at first blush. Wisely and thankfully, Son of Rogues Gallery draws on a bleak-music Murderer’s Row to put them across.“
