Review by Mark Deming;  Score: ***
♠   With this collection, Mark Lanegan offers his fans a different perspective on his 2014 album Phantom Radio. Lanegan and his collaborator Alain Johannes have handed off most of the tracks from Phantom Radio (as well as several from the EP No Bells on Sunday) to other musicians and producers to create new mixes of the material. With the help of Soulsavers, Moby, Mark Stewart, UNKLE, Greg Dulli, Moon Gangs, Alastair Galbraith, and others, A Thousand Miles of Midnight spins new soundscapes from the moody frameworks of Lanegan's original recordings, bringing his electronic influences to the forefront and confirming the strength and versatility of Lanegan's work.   
♠   Mark Lanegan Band return with A Thousand Miles of Midnight, an album of remixes of tracks from both ‘Phantom Radio’ and ‘No Bells On Sunday’, the EP that accompanied it. The album is made up of a brilliant array of remixes by artists as diverse as UNKLE, Moby, Greg Dulli and Soulsavers.
For his most recent, typically acclaimed album Phantom Radio, Lanegan deliberately embraced the most synthetic of tropes — the über–modernity of neo–Krautrock and a phone app entitled FunkBox, which formed the basis of his songs.
♠   This, coupled with the ghost–country atmospheres of his songwriting, made for a collection that was particularly suitable for reconstruction / deconstruction by left–field artists of all hues. So that’s exactly what we have here, with an assembly of musicians admired by Lanegan hand–picked to make over the material.
♠   Mark Stewart of The Pop Group brings out the searing black in Death Trip To Tulsa, Lanegan’s noirish venture into Glen Campbell terrain; Greg Dulli of Afghan Whigs lays stress on the predatory sleaze of I Am The Wolf; while Moby adds anthemic grace to Torn Red Heart. Waltzing In Blue, meanwhile, crawls slowly out of the crater of dub into which Earth plunges it on his mix.

♠   Made up of artists hand–picked by lanegan himself this album of remixes takes phantom radio into dark and fascinating territory, matching urgent beats and compelling loops to his own rusted vocal melancholia.
♠   With contributions from greg dulli, unkle, moby and pye corner audio there’s loads to love amidst the sonic diversity, and it’s surprising just how well lanegan’s songs fit with electronica: dragging his brooding menace towards the dancefloor could easily have ended terribly, but this exceeds any expectations.
