For his fourth solo album following the breakup of the much beloved Screaming Trees, Mark Lanegan delves into the always fraught waters of the all-covers album. Often a stylistic mish-mash of the artist's favorite songs done so much in their original styles that the singer's true personality is lost, the covers album is dangerous territory, but Lanegan navigates it beautifully. Crucially, „I’ll Take Care of You“ finds Lanegan performing the work of other singers and songwriters in his own style rather than adapting himself to suit the songs. Therefore, tunes by 1960s folkies Fred Neil ('Badidah') and Tim Hardin ('Shiloh Town') sit comfortably next to efforts by 1980s blues-punks the Gun Club ('Carry Home') and the Leaving Trains ('Creeping Coastline of Lights'), as well as a handful of traditional folk and country songs.
