Greg Dulli closes his first official solo album with a richly atmospheric, slowly unfurling ballad called "Slow Pan"--a fitting move for an artist who approaches rock'n'roll with the methodical gaze of a cinematographer. Over the past 30 years, the ensembles Dulli has fronted have assumed different names--first, the Afghan Whigs, then The Twilight Singers, and then back to the Whigs-- but his widescreen sensibility has never wavered. Usually, the term "cinematic" is reserved for instrumental music suggesting grandeur and gravitas, but Dulli prefers to drop you into the thick of the action.
