4-0 out of 5 stars Screaming Life/Fopp
The first half of this CD (Screaming Life EP) is ideal early Soundgarden--a little rough around the edges, but it has some good metal tracks ("Hand of God" has some of the best guitar solos) and trademark Chris Cornell wailing, like in "Entering," "Tears to Forget," and "Nothing to Say," though the middle song sounds more like AC/DC. However, the remaining half of this CD (Fopp EP) is pretty short and skippable, though "Fopp" is an unexpectedly fun song, both versions. Even though "Screaming Life/Fopp" is one of my least listened to Soundgarden CDs, it's still worth checking out if you're a diehard Soundgarden fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sorry I waited on this one..
After going through SERIOUS Soundgarden withdrawal, I had to finally pick this one up...I was not expecting much with this being a first release (an an EP, at that). BOY WAS I SURPRIZED ! The energy from LOUDER THAN LOVE and BADMOTORFINGER was always here ! You can hear the rawness and punk influence that Soundgarden began with, but it still leaves you wanting to hear more !

HUNTED DOWN, ENTERING, TEARS TO FORGET are all hard rockers. NOTHING TO SAY is classic Soundgarden stuff with its heavy riffs... SWALLOW MY PRIDE is 70s-type of rock...WOW ! GOOD STUFF !

IF ANYTHING, check out Chris Cornell actully RAPPING in the humorous LITTLE JOE...Yes, I said RAPPING !

Soundgarden does it all...and does it all well. NOW what am I gonna do ? Wait for another solo project from Chris, I suppose.

3-0 out of 5 stars For those who have the other albums...
Perhaps not the ideal release for those who are yet uninitiated with Soundgarden, in my opinion the best band to emerge from the Seattle crucible in the late 80s/early 90s, but nonetheless a worthwhile purchase given the price. Seemingly against the grain of opinion from earlier reviews, I prefer the Fopp EP over Screaming Life - Fopp itself being one of my favourite Soundgarden songs and criminally left off the 'A-sides' compilation (which is puzzling given the fact that it was an A-side track, though the A-side 'My Wave' from superunknown was treated similarly).

If you are new to Soundgarden, then I suggest you begin with 'A-sides' or, if like me you are averse to buying greatest hits albums, then Superunknown. If you own all the other albums and are are still passionate about the music, for the price Screaming Life/Fopp is a worthwhile purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
No matter what anyone says, this is an absolutely awesome record, especially considering it's the first record Soundgarden put out. Screaming Life is clearly the highlight of the two EPs, so I'll talk about that first.

A lot of people insult the scratchy, almost "ghetto" sound of the songs on this record, but if you bought it on vinyl, you'd know that that's just a result of the cd not being digitally remastered. You CAN'T hold that against the band. What's left beneath that is some absolutely gorgeous music. Nothing to Say, Hunted Down, and Entering are some of the best Soundgarden songs ever written, and in my opinion, some of the best rock songs ever written. In those songs there is undeniable skill from all sides--vocals, drums, bass, and guitar. What more could you ask for?

Now the Fopp EP...Soundgarden had this tendency to make fun of things via imitation, but then at the end it looked like they were serious (take "Big Dumb Sex" on Louder than Love for example). Fopp is the same way...it's a joke. Swallow My Pride, on the other hand, is a classic grunge song, written by Green River. Half of the bands that matter have covered it, so it's only proper that Soundgarden did too.

In all fairness, I can see why some "Soungarden fans" don't like this. But if you fall in that category, take a step back and acknowledge that you're just a casual Soungarden listener, because any real fan knows that this record is genuine, unfiltered Soundgarden. Maybe you should go give Audioslave a shot instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars It just Foppin' rocks!
The people who don't like this cd because it's not "Black Hole Sun", don't deserve to own this album. Any true fan knows this rocks as much as the other albums, just differently. And as much as I like "Nothing to Say", I think I like others even more. I mean, "Hunted Down", "Little Joe", and "Fopp" are amazing, especially when you consider that these songs were done in 86-87. Of course these EP's sound more like the first two records, than the last two, but any fan who thinks they aren't missing much with this, are sadly mistaken. It's about as good as punk-metal-grunge gets. It's just too bad this is out of print, when so many lesser albums are selling truckloads. ... Read more

Thank heavens the Trees' remarkably cohesive and mature 1986 debut has finally been released on CD. The songs aren’t really "there" yet, but they would be with time. Few bands mixed psychedelic, hard rock and punk sounds in the mid '80s quite the way the Screaming Trees did. They had contemporaries; the Flaming Lips had a similar mix of manic energy with acid-tinged vocals at the time, while Plan 9 were making a similarly keyboard-heavy psych-punk, and Australian act the Died Pretty also shared vocalist Mark Lanegan’s then very un-hip fascination with Jim Morrison. Clearly, this is music arrived at in a vacuum, out of the isolation, boredom, and desperation of life in a small logging town in the Pacific Northwest. Steve Fisk’s production may be a tad loop-happy and reverb-laden, but it’s far crisper and cleaner than most recordings of the era. This album has aged remarkably well.--Mike McGonigal ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nearly a Masterpiece
I bought this album today, after nagging the sales assistant into ordering it daily for several weeks. At first listen, when I simply skipped each track after the first one or two minutes, the album didn`t seem too impressive, but I felt obliged to buy it.

I have listened to this album several times over now, and even though this album doesn`t have the maturity and quality of Sweet Oblivion and Dust, it has several other pros that make it worth a listen. For one thing, Mark Lanegan is more lively here than on the last two albums. He seems a lot more "into" it, more spontaneous. The songs also take lots of interesting turns along the way, so that, for instance, the 3rd track, Standing On the Edge, begins in a pretty laidback, bluesy manner, but ends in grunge reminiscent of songs off Mudhoney`s Superfuzz Bigmuff album. Another song that is definitely worth your listen, is the last track, called Clairvoyance, where Mark sounds a lot like John Lennon at his best. In other tracks, like the opening track, you can hear a clear Doors` influence, something like the Doors updated to the style of a Seattle garage band. As a whole, the album sounds like the late 60`s meet punk meets garage rock.

All in all, this album is worth a listen for any fan of Screaming Trees and Mudhoney. But I think the casual listener should buy one of the Trees` later albums first. For one thing, Lanegan`s voice hasn`t yet reached its prime on this one, neither is Mark Pickerel quite as capable of carrying the groove as his later replacement Barret Martin was. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A reminder of the "good old days" of the North Texas scene
Tripping Daisy were one of a handful of bands to come out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area and do great things. They could have done so much more, though, with a little more support from the recording industry. Their live shows and albums were absolutely brilliant. "I Am An Elastic Firecracker" was their most successful album and was a perfect midpoint between their debut, "Bill" and their third record "Jesus Hits Like an Atom Bomb." "Firecracker" had polish and pizazz to it...it was certainly more polished and streamlined than the debut, but less experimental than "Jesus." All in all, it was an ideal major label debut. While Tim DeLaughter's voice does emphasize the Perry Farrell influence and the band does at times sound a little bit like old school Jane's Addiction, the Daisy displays its Beatles influence more than anything else, especially on tracks like "Same Dress New Day." Other tracks, such as the heavy "Motivation" and "Prick" rock out with the best of 'em. And the guitar of the late, underrated Wes Berggren gives the tunes plenty of weight. Pick up this album just so you can hear "I Got A Girl" (the big hit) and be amazed by everything else that's here...you won't be disappointed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Their Best Material
I bought this record primarily because of the track "I Got A Girl," and figured that the whole album would be full of "I Got A Girl"s. The album is not what I expected it to be. While there are some good tracks--the aforementioned hit, plus the bracing opener, "Rocketpop," "Piranha," and the pained "Prick," it was a weaker album than what I had expected. I've seen Tripping Daisy perform, and while they are a fine live act, their best record would probably have to be "Bill," which came out on Dragon Street in 1991 or so. This album does, however feature some good guitar work by Wes Breggeren, but one thing that is too much of is Tim DeLaughner emphasizing the Perry Farrell aspect of his vocal style too much.

5-0 out of 5 stars weak?? not at all!
ok let's admit it: if it wasn't for "i got a girl" many of us would've never known this band! and this is just one of the reasons why this cd is awesome...

after years and years listening to it, you'll even end up skipping that song, believe me! definitely one of the best cds of the 90's

my personal favorites are "piranha", "trip along", "step behind" and "prick", but of course this doesn't mean the rest of the songs are not good enough!

5-0 out of 5 stars Want something that will bring you back to the 90's?
This is definitely one of my favorite albums from the 1990's. If you'd like to take a moment to flash back to the far too vast array of styles which made up the 90's, don't be without this album.

4-0 out of 5 stars jane's addiction
This is a really good CD. I bought it really cheap used once because I remembered liking I Got a Girl, even though it was really simple. I was surprised when I heard the rest of the CD, because it sounds very little like I Got a Girl, but it still grabbed my attention because it is really very good. There are no songs I dislike, some of the best are Same Dress New Day, Raindrop, Rocketpop, Motivation, and Prick.
Anyway, I was never really a fan of Jane's Addiction until a few years ago. I've had Ritual de lo Habitual for a long time, but for some reason I never really liked it. Then, I got it out to listen to when I was driving once and it was really great. I noticed though, that it sounded EXACTLY like a lot of these Tripping Daisy songs, or, more accurately, if I'd listened to Jane's first, the Tripping Daisy songs would have reminded me of Jane's songs. I don't mind sounded like other bands as long as it sounds good, and this does, so I'd recommend this to anyone, especially if you like Jane's Addiction. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars I am a Melvins fan, but. . .
. . .this album smells. I suppose if I had to pick a favorite it would be Bullhead -- definitely quality Melvins. I also like Houdini and lots of others, but this Maggot CD is crap. The boys seem to have lost their drive. It's like some sort of contractual obligation or something and they just make product now like Aerosmith or Madonna.

Dale, if you see this, sorry. Dude, you don't even sound like your hittin'. KB, it'll be alright, man. Find a new drug and weather this storm. It's not like there's really anything else to listen to right now. It's dry all over. Are you listening to any electronica?

By the way, that three-set crush-O-rama at the Cat's Cradle years ago was the ultimate. I fear you let something slip away that night. I didn't even have the motivation to go see your latest shot there during the first week of August'99.

Oh, maaaannnnnn, I'm getting sad just writing this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't fight it
This album is awesome, and it reminds me of the Atlantic trio (Stoner Witch, Houdini, Stag) in its accessibility to the uninitiated Melvins listener. It's out of hand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heavy and to the point
Quite frankly a lot of reviewers have hit the nail on the head with this album.In a word it is indeed HEAVY.I dare say this 10 times heavier than your favorite "nu-metal" band and easily 1000 times more intelligent.Obviously you're here because you are a melvins fan already ,or ,looking to become one.I dont know if a newbie would quite understand the magnitude of this ,or the other two albums in the trilogy,at least not fully...until they have heard some of the previous albums.So if you are new I suggest 1"26 Songs',"Ozma" or their more accessible "Stoner Witch" and "Houdini".Now for those of you who already know them but dont know the album...heres a quick rundown.The first 4 tracks are actually one song (AMAZON) and are very punk meets sludge in style.Awesome opener.All the rest of the songs are divided into 2 tracks....for what reason i dont know,but it does not detract from any of the songs at all.Every song has a different vibe ,but all stay in the same heavy vein as the others.I must say I was completley blown away by the cover of "The Green Manalishi"...I assure you that you havent heard this song until you hear the Melvins version of it.Some Melvins cds are hit and miss as far as overall album feel...this is not one of them.Solid from track 1-16.....Try it out...if you're a fan....you WILL like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The heaviest album ever made.
Man, this album is great. From start to finish it kicks your freakin' butt, smashes your eardrums, and melts your speakers. Just put the album on number 3 (AMAZON) and prepare to be crushed. Holy crap that song's heavy. And the last song is THE definition of sludge metal. Depressing, droning, crushing, downtuned, super freakin' distorted sludge metal. My only complaint was the production. The drums were WAY too soft. You could hear the snare okay, the cymbals so-so, if you listened hard you could kind of hear the toms, but you couldn't hardly even hear the bass drum at all. And Dale's a damn good experienced drummer, too, that's pretty sad. If you like any type of heavy music, you should check this album out along with anything by Kyuss, another great heavy-as-crap band. Also check out the album Stoner Witch and Houdini by the Melvins. I'm out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Crybaby saga starts out strong!
The entire trilogy is fantastic, The Crybaby being one of the most interesting Melvins album in years. However, fans of the Melvins past will be especially drawn to part one of this masterpiece in creative music-making, The Maggot! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Join their "Tribe".
In short, they're one of the decent "Seattle" bands that didn't get well known in the 90's. Even bands like "Tad" and "Green River" were more popular. But they are good, maybe not "Alice In Chains" good, but still in the same neighborhood. Also, though you could call them grunge, they're more on the metal side of it. None of these songs sound like a hit, and the album probably isn't essential, but any fan of the genre should like it. You "Gotta Believe" me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Unsung
Gruntruck is just that - one of the true unsung bands to emerge from the grunge era. Or actually to not emerge from the grunge era. The other reviews are pretty much dead-on. If you like that particular type of music, and I do, Gruntruck is worth listening to. All of the songs are well written and it's too bad they are not still touring. They put on one fantastic show with loads of energy. I saw them open for Alice in Chains and they were definitely full of potential.

5-0 out of 5 stars under rated
Gruntruck is one of the most underated bands of the early '90's. If you haven't heard them, buy this now. Their live show was amazing, and this disc will not disappoint.

5-0 out of 5 stars Number 1
This is one of the best CD's I've ever purchased! This band rocks!!!! And there isn't a single dud on this one, they all good... I'm surprised this is an Import, this one's too good. I would rate this CD in my top 5 all time favorite CDs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Seattle's best band you haven't heard
When the Seattle scene was buzzing and 'grunge' bands came out of the woodwork, a lot of good music fell through the cracks. Gruntruck is one of those bands. This album shows Gruntruck's true range--ALL METAL, ALL THE TIME! They had great energy live and have devoted, hard-core fans. If you like Soundgarden or Alice, you will love this album. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars There's a reason there is nothing but 5 star reviews here!
In 1993 the band Paw arrived on the scene with what is perhaps the best album ever to be recorded only to be labelled as riding in on Kurt Cobain's flannel shirt-tails. Record labels went crazy over them and then promptly forgot about the whole thing. A couple of years later, the 3D0 Road Rash video game was ported to the PlayStation, which included "Jessie," "Pansy," and "Under The Bridge." This made Paw fans out of leagues of PSX gamers, myself included. Since then, not much has been heard of this band.

Dragline is not the only CD that this absolutely amazing band has come out with, but it is the best. From the opener Gasoline to the powerful final track Hard Pig, this CD is incredible. Strong, solid, guitar-driven rock with a hint of southern style... If you like Corrosion of Conformity, Staind, Stone Temple Pilots, Lynyrd Skynyrd or even bands like Korn and the Deftones, you will love this album. I have been listening to this CD since 1996 and I still never get tired of it... the replay value is unbelievable. Every time I listen to it I discover more aspects of the work to appreciate.

Their 1995 release Death To Traitors on the whole more mellow than Dragline, but still also worth checking out. I remember hearing the single "Hope I Die Tonight" played on the radio a few times, but once again Paw was underappreciated. There is a large underground following that continues to grow.

For more info, check out seanm2.amhosting.com, as that is the best Paw site on the Net.

5-0 out of 5 stars Too bad college radio is dead...
No question about it... the best album from 1993! I've gone thru 3 copies on CD since it first came out. Seems like each time I listen to it, I hear something new. The lead singer, Mark Hennessey, has a truly feroucious voice that combines growls, screams and whispers all at once. It's a truly rare sound when matched up with the blazing guitar of Grant Fitch. Paw has had a somewhat revolving door of drummers and bass players, but as long as Fitch and Hennessey are in the lineup, they rock. Certainly one of the premier live bands to ever emerge from the now dead college rock scene. These guys are loud and fast, and even louder and faster in person. As is always the case, they fell through the cracks and signed with a label that didn't know what to do with them. At the time (1992 and 1993), grunge was the rage and Paw was quickly labeled grunge and signed by a big label. However, they really weren't grunge. Part punk, part metal, part southern rock and even a slight hint of twang... They have broken up more times than I can count, but mamanged to put out 2 full albums, a disc of b-sides and short disc a few years ago. Each unique and outstanding in it's own way. If these guys do ever get back together, go see them live. You won't regret it. By the way, if I had to chose... the 2 best songs on the album are Jesse and The Bridge.

5-0 out of 5 stars I guess the 90's was more anxious to pass away than I was...
Yeah I remember Guns N Roses, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, Paw, Tad, Soundgarden, Tool and Nirvana. Oh my, how the year's go by. Uhhh! This is when rock use to rock ass! But now? It seems like wherever you go, oh no, another damn rap song allowing my mind to feed on crap and possibly worse than viewing the negativity on the news. Meanwhile, as everything slowly, but surely comes to an end, you eventually remind yourself that life forcefully and inevitably changes so dramatically. So, while you're still here in this miraculous but, temporary country of America on earth, observe more of the good old times when music was so great, rather than this average dead rap observing society we're in at this point of time. At the same time I applaud the rise of African Americans, although we've all come a long way through our journeys. And I still believe the music and culture of Europeans rule based on amazement and fascination. Every day must come to pass. Furthermore, I might as well go ahead and prepare myself for the Inevitable Final Day on earth. Because when we all eventually leave the earth, all that will be left is God, then I will be assured not to hear another rap song again. Now, before these rock fans including myself eventually die, please keep the 80's and 90's rock alive!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good ole Paw
The 90's was a decade in which some fantastic bands put out big hits. As we all look back on it now, Paw is a band that stands out as one of the best rock bands of that time. In May '93 Paw produced Dragline, a fantastic album full of non stop rock and unbelievable melodies throughout each track. Every aspect of Paw's energy on Dragline has a big impact on it's listener. A few noteworthy songs out of many on this album include "Jessie", a hard rocker just like "Bridge", "Gasoline" kicks off the album at full throttle, and "Pansy" is another fan favorite. Every song here tells a story and that combined with the edge & rocking pace of Paw, it can't be beat. If you're new to Paw, there's no better place to start than Dragline as it will grasp your attention and leave you wanting for more everytime you pop this cd into your player.

5-0 out of 5 stars words can't do it justice...but I'll type something anyway
I'll say this though, it makes me wanna bail some hay...then help grandpa change out an oil pump for his combine after lunch. Seriously, this is hands down one of the most heavy, honest, raw-emotion-filled pieces of music I own. For me, Dragline is like watching the last two minutes of Field of Dreams. If you don't have a sentimental "hey-dad-let's-play-some-catch" lump in your throat when it's over, something's wrong. ... Read more

Poor little Candlebox. Not only were they written off as one of a dozen or so Seattle clone bands, but they were also the first of the postgrunge, here-today-gone-tomorrow crop that's grown fertile with the addition of groups such as Third Eye Blind, Matchbox 20, and Marcy Playground. So how does Candlebox aim to thwart expectations and hurdle obstacles? Simple. They get all sentimental, forsaking alt-rock muscle in favor of slick, overtly melodic rhythms and overly produced arrangements. Even when they threaten to kick out the jams, as on the title track and "Blinders," they resort to lilting vocals and ragged, predictable blues-rock passages because, hey, that's what sells. Probably not this time. --Jon Wiederhorn ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars These "Pills" are so good, it should truly be illegal!!!
**WARNING** The latest release from Candlebox is not for the "faint at heart". If you don't beleive me, just read the reviews. It is obvious that these "professional" people don't know "GROUNDBREAKING" ROCK AND ROLL when they hear it. Can you blame them? After all, these guys have been inundated with lackluster, musicianshipless albums over the last few years. I don't need to name any of these crappy bands. Just turn on your radio, and they are most likely one of them. Enough of that... do yourself a favor and buy the new Candlebox album. The thought that Rock is Dead will quickly be blown away. The title track kicks major tail. "Blinders" is very Tesla-esk (extremely cool). A Stones Throw away is most likely the coolest song I've heard in years. If songs like "So Real" and "Belmore Place" are any indication of future Candlebox albums...brace yourself 'cause the future is completlely amazing. The great thing ab! out this album is that you can be a picky "Guitar god" or someone who doesn't even care for Rock that much, and both will still marvel at this great album. Is the first listen a tough one, perhaps. After all, after smelling sewage for so long (turn on the radio to smell it) you get used to it. Now that there is something "refreshing" and "pleasant", it takes a while to get used to it. However, if it takes more than three listens to realize the propitiousness of this album.... give up listening to music all together. But seriously, I truly hope you check out the album. Unless YOU buy the album or MTV and Radio stations quit relying on crap to fill the airwaves, the guys at Maverick (candlebox's label) are going to get the wrong idea. You do the math. Lastly, Candlebox.... this could very well be your Sgt. Peppers or Zep IV.... so enjoy it and tour a lot!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for all the great songs Candlebox
For those of you who don't know, Candlebox are no longer together. They all went their seperate ways. It truly is a shame they weren't appreciated enough when they were together. While Happy Pills is probably there most "pop" album, it still contains the style and integrity that any true Candlebox fan would love.

10,000 horses makes a perfect opener to one of the great pure rock albums of the 90's. This, the last Candlebox album, contains the best rock ballads I've ever heard on one CD. I think the songs contain the most personal lyrics Kevin Martin has ever written. Actually you could make a case that tracks 3-5 (Blinders, It's Alright, A Stone's Throw Away) could have easily been made into a 15+ minute epic with the right transitions. Offerings and Step Back carry themselves in the vein of great rocks songs via The Black Crowes with great vocals by Martin that add the unforgetablue Candlebox touch. Another great and most balladesque (if that's a word) song is Sometimes. This album wraps up with a few feel good rock songs that compliment the rest of the songs perfectly.

For those of you still craving for more Candlebox, look for Kevin Martin's solo disc coming out in the near future, hopefully 2001.

5-0 out of 5 stars candlebox delivers again
Once again Kevin Martin delivers. His vocals are incredible along with intelligent and thought provoking lyrics. I can not get enough of this band. Check out his new band. They are even better.

Candlebox has a flattened name that intends to bring fire, this album does that but there are limitations to its greatness. If you like their first album, then this is essential. Lucy is weird, let me listen again tonight. But Stones Throw Away is Awesome! Also, 'Breakaway' is cool and 'Sometimes' is pop blues in a good way, but they are not perfect songs. But this album is better than the Stones with the Dust Brothers. Enjoy the blues within a contemporary meaning and none of the frantic realization of the first, except some of it....

4-0 out of 5 stars good listening
good cd. not as good as the debut but still a good listen. kevin martin can sing with the best of them. screw the critics, the media, mtv and every other bandwagon what is cool now clone, this band made some great music, even lucy was good. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Melvins album to get!
If you want to get into the twisted sound that is the Melvins, then you should start with this magnificent 70+ minutes of pure rock'n'roll madness! The Ozma/Gluey Porch Treatments split album is truly a test to see if you are worthy of the title "Melvins fan". If you like this one you will probably like most of their early material such as Bullhead and Lysol. It's not easy getting into these two albums, but they grow on ya for every listen. The only crappy track is "Love Thing", but luckily that is a Kiss cover, so please don't discard the band yet! There's one more cover(a great one at that), which is Candy-O by the Cars.

The best song is probably Eye Flys, which is more than 6 minutes of prime sludge. Slow, repetitive and meandering, which is not a bad thing when talking about the Melvins! If I had to choose between one of the two albums I'd probably choose Gluey Porch Treatments because it has the best tracks: Eye Flys, Echohead/Don't Piece Me and Clipping Roses. But Ozma is almost as good with hardass songs like Creepy Smell, Oven and Dead Dressed.

The Melvins do everything they can to confuse the keen listener: Dale Crover is a drum god(the most creative IMO) and his beats are unpredictable and complex. The Melvins use strange time signatures and unconventional riffs, and Buzz snarling voice was even weirder back in the 80's compared to the also wonderful days of Houdini and Stoner Witch.

5-0 out of 5 stars BAD A$$
Don't come here looking for stuff that might sound like what others constitute as "grunge," for here you will find no remnants of Pearl Jam or their nine hundred counterparts. Melvins defined grunge, shaped it to better serve our planet in the form of heavy, beautiful nerve-grinding grooves of metal-on-metal and bone-on-pavement. Don't come here looking for something your trendy girlfriend will want to hear during foreplay-- all you'll find here are the two albums that defined rock, that defined grunge, that defined the northwest musical revolution. buy this album and you will hold more than just the best music in creation, you will hold history in your hands.

5-0 out of 5 stars when you know you know
i've been studying these songs for years and still getting more from them, the parts, the grooves, the performances. straight from the heart and balls these songs lay down depth and reality of expression that any other committed artists of any medium strive to achieve but don't realize that they aren't even worthy and can't possibly understand or grasp the power and directness. this is purity of expression in music that is so bold it'll pass you by unless you are also worthy. in 100 years there will still be those who know about it, and there will still be few who can take it or understand it. as it's said in this compilation, "are you ready for your tenure? ... take your time to unleash."

5-0 out of 5 stars Spoken like a dreamer...
Yes! These are the two albums that put Melvins on the global map. Uncompromising heaviness combined with mathematical autism, and embellished with Sir Buzz's poetry of sublime absurdity. This is not metal or punk. For those of you who know the language, this is more along the lines of Blast! or perhaps some of the better later-Black Flag - but far darker, and much, much slower. Gluey Porch Treatments is a black motor of an album (Victor Hayden where are you?), while Ozma a bit more straight ahead. While these albums are some of the most unflinchingly confrontational collections in the rock canon, make no mistake: these are important, landmark albums. Remeber: no Melvins = no Nirvana.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sick Beast Metal
Dark, Heavy and Loopy can describe the Melvins from WA State. They combine Iommi's guitars with a drunken, demented lyricism over a drummer who stops and starts and breaks up the backbeat like a jazz trapman. Ozma is slow and low with enough devestating riffs to occupy any fan of Kyuss or Pantera but there is something screwy going down. Buzz ain't right in his head. Gluey Porch Treaments is Ozma's predecessor from '87 and you can tell by the intensity of Eye Flys that this is not a mentally healthy rock and roll disc. I add both albums on this disc to my favorite rock albums list right next to Master Of Reality. ... Read more

Pure Frosting, the Presidents' farewell/B-sides-and-outtakescollection is consistent with--in fact, as good, or better than--the band's twoproper studio albums, not hard for such an enjoyably slight outfit. The Seattlepop trio's last recordings include typically, entertainingly goofyconsiderations of subjects like "Mobile Home," a waitress at the"Love Delicatessen" and touring "Japan." "Man(Opposable Thumb)" turns out to have more going for it than a great title,proving a clever dissection of both machismo and human nature. Live versions ofthree cuts from their platinum debut are redundant, but fit with the record'sagreeably slapdash nature; a sophomore-effort number, "Tiki God," isincluded here in its bongo-driven "lounge" incarnation. And while aCD-single version of Plastic Bertrand's immortal "Ca Plane Pour Moi"isn't here, two other great covers--"Video Killed the Radio Star" (astaple of the group's live show cut for The Wedding Singer) and a torrid,totally apt rendition of Ian Hunter's "Cleveland Rocks" (The DrewCarey Show's theme)--do end up highlights. --Rickey Wright ...

3-0 out of 5 stars President's weakest album yet, but like none other
While I love the Presidents for the sole fact that they are (were) unlike any band, some of their weaknesses seem evident on Pure Frosting. The best tunes are the new (or previously unreleased tracks) like upbeat "Japan" or "Teenage Girl". The self depreciating live songs are a nice touch... in "Back Porch" it sounds like a fan yells "Just shut up and play Peaches!", although that could just be me. Yet the album as a whole just doesn't have the completeness of II or even their self titled debut. Fans should give it a try, but don't go out and buy it just for their version of "Video Killed the Radiostar." They have so many better songs, just too bad there won't be any more.

4-0 out of 5 stars a fun album for the whole family
A few great songs are on the album like "cleveland rocks", and "video killed the radio star" are on this cd, but trash thrown in like "tiki lounge god" and live versions of two previous songs take away from the overall quality of the album. For big PUSA fans only.

5-0 out of 5 stars More TV Than Airplay
It's a shame that PUSA never recieved much radio airtime after their first album was overplayed. This is a great album and a must for any Presidents fan. Love Delicatessen is a great opener, then it's followed by the never great Video Killed The Radio Star (a mediocre song from the start), but the bouncy Mobile Home boosts the beat. Japan is simply a rock song with a good beat, while Sunshine is a change; not for the better or worse, but something different for the band. The Live Version of Back Porch is jus enjoyable to hear (for those of us who never saw them in concert). Man is just odd, it starts out fine, then changes styles completely. The original Tiki God was better, but this one has it's place. Teenage girl is another rock song. Slip Away is a low point, but is worth listening to. Tremolo Blooz is a fun Delta Blues/Western tune and is one of the highest points on the album. Wel all know Cleveland Rocks, and the Live version on Lump surpasses the original.
Overall GET THIS ALBUM!

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably PUSA's second best CD.
This CD features songs that have been released on other various recordings including two live songs of Back Porch (excellent version) and Lump. Some songs on here have never been released before. And some of these songs are in movies/tv shoes. Video Killed the Radio Star was featured in the Wedding Singer, and Cleveland Rocks is the theme song to the Drew Carey Show. Both of those songs weren't written by PUSA. And another song known to the fans would be Tiki Lounge God, but in a totally different style, it is pretty much acoustic with bongo drums.

All in all, a great CD to end the career of a great band!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure frosting, extra frosting you'll eat the cake
The final episode of the P of USA album trilogy. This album's main hits were sensational cover versions of classic songs. Video Killed the Radio Star and Cleveland Rocks (as heard in the opening credits of the Drew Carey Show) are superb.

Original songs on here such as Japan and Love Delicatessen are pretty good too. There's also a few live songs on here as well which may be a real bonus if you never bought an singles or album versions with bonus live tracks. The P of USA were pretty good live.

If you can get the version of this album with the Extra Frosting bonus disc you'll get all the hits from their previous two albums so if you don't have them and only want to buy one album then this one is for you. If you do own those then the bonus disc doesn't have much to offer you except putting those all on one disc. This is still a great album to buy without Extra Frosting. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This album is simply,...Amazing!!!
Its like, i the whole album is brilliant! Theres heavy guitars, a hendrix song, good rythm, cool vocals (not many, which i think adds to the character of the band.... ANd finally this is a great album to get stoned to.

but dont understand the seventh song... nevermind ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars my only complaint is that it's not long enough.
i like this album a lot. it's long, engrossing, and ultimately mellow with lots of good vibes. there's something in the music that sounds like a huge airplane floating in midair, creating a loud rumbling hum that drones on and on. everything else accompanies this sort of aimless drifting happily about without a care in the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just gets better and better
This album is just a natural extension of the previous three studio albums, while being more experimental in terms of songwriting. The wonderful thing about Earth is the subtlety of their music, and how Dylan Carlson seamlessly blends 70's metal riffs, southern rock, and eastern influences into masterful songs. Some real treats on this album are the haunting "Crooked Axis For a String Quartet", the powerful "High Command", and "Coda Maestoso in F (Flat) Minor", which was used in the end credits of the "Kurt and Courtney" documentary. This is a good first album to buy if you're just getting into Earth and/or the whole drone/grunge scene; it's easier to digest than most if your just getting your feet wet. I'd also recommend their other three available albums, Phase 3: Thrones and Dominions, Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version, and Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars.

4-0 out of 5 stars simple beats with killer guitar riffs
Earth is a perfect combination of metal and stoner rock. The lyrics and vocals may leave a lot to be desired, but the blending of simple, deep bass with crunching guitars results in an awesome sound. The closest compairison I can think of is Ministry, but with more of a southern rock flavor. The cover of "peace in mississippi" is a masterpiece of guitar riffage.

4-0 out of 5 stars Please bring me the sustanance of your suicidal needle.
"In the Style of Demons" is perhaps all that needs to be said. On this record Earth creates and maintains a crushingly simple rock onslaught. Putting all else out of their minds (and they were out of their minds i'm sure!), the Seattle four piece concentrate on the deconstruction of the simple rock formula. Its a strange sonic experiment at times, and not for the faint of heart. Man, you should see the video! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not to good...
This was a pretty shotty CD, the quality was bad. Singing some times out of key. I love Pearl Jam but this was their worst live album I've heard. They didn't play some of their hits as well.

Still not bad, only cost me 12 bucks new.

5-0 out of 5 stars Both shows are great
Great shows. More than 50 different songs, including gems like Crown of Thorns and Breath; along with classics like Do the evolution, Alive, etc.I prefer the first show, but both of them are great performances by the band. Get them both.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like big butts and I cannot lie
The songs on this cd rock, but if you are tight on the dough, buy "My Body, the Hand Grenade" because most of these songs are already on there. The only song not on "MBTHG" is "Johnny's in the Bathroom". I personally love this track but not everyone will.....since it's a spoken/instrumental track. The greatest part about that track is getting to hear Courtney talking to a really funny lady on the other end. The lady says some rather interesting things..... The other kick-ass thing about this cd is the big fat booklett. I think 20 pages. You get to see old pictures of the original Hole line-up, old show-posters, and a really old and interesting interview. I like big butts and I cannot lie, the girls they can't deny....

5-0 out of 5 stars Hole:the raw beginning
The cover is eyecatching,and the songs are awesome.I loved reading the interview on the inside,with the homemade flyers and handwritten song lyrics in there.Courtney has a way with lyrics like no one else,and theyre so cryptic and fascinating."Phonebill Song" is like a hyperactive wildchild on the loose,and "turpentine",the first ever HOLE recording,is so masterful and pulled together and classic punk rock HOLE!It just makes me ache to go back in time and experience life as she did,to be part of the exciting punk scene of the early 90s.Like everyone else here,I have "My Body the Hand Grenade",but I wanted to hear "Johnnies in the bathroom",and also the booklet inside is great.I have to collect all recordings of Hole,and would love to start collecting bootlegs and vinyl also.This CD is WORTH IT,because its the first ever anything released by HOLE.BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars "And I know all you b*tches by your Christian names!"
This EP is great, especially if you like earlier Hole from the 'Pretty On The Inside' days. The EP starts off with 'Retard Girl' which was Hole's very first single. Next is the fast punk of 'Phone Bill Song' which is one of my favorites. After that is 'Turpentine' which was the very first song Hole ever recorded (supposedly in someone's basement in 1990). This is a killer track, and hands down the best track on the EP. It's strange that this song has more melody than a lot of the songs that followed it, though. The last song is 'Johnnies In The Bathroom' which is brilliantly creepy. It's a spoken track like 'Sassy' and 'Starbelly' from 'Pretty On The Inside'. I think it's about young girls being prostituted and lured by the dangers of fame or something like that. I would have given this EP more stars but only problem: it's too short! I know it's an EP and all but it would be nice if it had 'Dicknail' and 'Burn Black' on it. Oh well. Enjoy the interview, which also features Hole's original bassist Jill Emery and original drummer Caroline Rue.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hole: the early days
Ok, to start off hole is my favorite band (explains the name), i would recommend this EP to anyone who already has a hole album. The reasoning, because it's the harsh , drunk voice of Courtney Love not the sweet voice displayed in "Miss World". To go through the tracks, Turpintine- the first recording for Hole, the best song on this EP, Retard Girl, a former vinyl, and a very good song for Hole in the early days.Phone Bill Song also a good song, not the best for hole, but is a good song altogether. Johnnies in the Bathroom- the worst "song" on this EP it sonds more like a cheap demo, not a song. Over-all a good EP, not the best from Hole but it's not too shabbie.

1-0 out of 5 stars WORST CD HOLE EVER DID
SURE, THIS CD IS GOOD FOR ITS PRICE, BEING THAT THERE IS A BIG BOOKLET, BUT ALL 4 OF THESE SONGS SUCK! NOW, I'M A FAN OF HOLE, BUT WHAT THE HELL IS THIS STUFF? THIS STUFF CAN'T EVEN MATCH THE STUFF THEY DID LATER ON IN THEIR CAREER. A BIG DISSAPOINTMENT. MAYBE SOME FANS OF 80S STYLE PUNK WOULD LOVE THIS. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars buy it!
this CD is the essential grunge-record..it simply rocks! I bought the CD because i am a fan of blood circus, swallow and chemistry set, and these artists has some of the best tracks on the whole album. but the other artists surprised me too. "sex god missy" by tad is one of my favorite tracks by tad, and a good way to start this album. the fluid song is even better, and maybe one of the best songs on here. soundgarden and green river(later pearl jam) where maybe along with nirvana the most important grunge bands in the 80's, and all three bands are(of course) represented here. "big cigar" by catbutt has a garage-punky fee l to it, and it's also one of by favorites. buy this one if you like grunge, but if you think this is a f***ing creed-nickelback-puddle of mudd thing, don't..

Assuming former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl dreads the thought of forever being known as "the guy from Kurt Cobain's band," the last thing he'd want to hear is that the debut album from his new band Foo Fighters sounds much like one from the deceased duke of grunge. Unfortunately, Nirvana comparisons are not only inevitable, they're bound to consume the dialog surrounding his quartet entirely.Perhaps it was unavoidable osmosis: Grohl, Foo Fighters' lead singer-guitarist, wrote most of these tunes during breaks from beat-keeping for his former band leader. It's natural that Cobain's knack for balancing hard and fast with musical and melodic would wear off on Grohl, as well as on bandmates Pat Smear (who also played with Nirvana), William Goldsmith, and Nate Mendel (both of Seattle's Sunny Day Real Estate). Grohl even unveils vocal cords that tread lightly on Cobain's gorgeous growl.Of course, many Nirvana-be's have tried to capture Cobain & Co.'s teen spirit, and all failed; that Foo Fighters succeed in creating a powerful heavy rock album that's neither noisy nor stale is a measured accomplishment in its own right. So bask in the familiar neo-garage punk (a.k.a. grunge) of "I'll Stick Around," "Oh, George," and "Good Grief," because we certainly won't hear anything from the style's originator in the near future. And, who knows, you might even be surprised by Grohl's own pop chops on the mellow Byrds-like folk rock "Big Me" and catchy rave-up "This Is a Call." The Foo Fighters prove that even if you can't go home again, it sure is comfortable hanging out next door. --Roni Sarig ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good
Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album was better than anyone could have suspected. Dave Grohl was hidden on the drums in one of the more important rock bands ever. When I heard he was going to be fronting a new band and playing guitar, my first reaction was that he was just trying to cash out on the Nirvana thing before it faded away.

It turns out that he has a lot of musical talent beyond the drum kit. He also has good song writing ability. The songs on this album are not particluarly deep; but, they are not of the shallow variety either. For a first time effort, they are pretty good.

Foo Fighters is a slightly different sound than Nirvana. Obviously there are going to be some similarities. When you spend that long in the company of another artist, your music will tend to take on sounds of that person. However, Foo Fighters do have a more clean rock sound than Nirvana. The music is not as loud or distorted. This sounds better with the way that Grohl sings. Surprisingly he has a very good voice and he sounds more like a classic singer than Cobain.

4-0 out of 5 stars Personality and Energy Galore
This is (I guess?) a re-issue of the original CD that I own, so while I can't speak to the sound quality of this release, the original was such a good creation overall that I don't see how a re-issue could damage it in that regard.

So, on to the review. I own all of the Foo Fighters' studio albums (plus the "My Hero Japan EP"), but this is the one album by Grohl & Co. that I return to on a consistent basis. The songs here are for the most part more raw and direct than future releases, and contain an infectious sense of energy and personality that I personally found lacking in the Foos' most recent efforts. The leadoff "This Is A Call" is churning guitar pop at its finest, and the pace doesn't really let up until "Floaty," which sidetracks the album into an enjoyable acoustic ballad. But that doesn't last for long, as the very next track ("Weenie Beenie") reverts back to the raw punk noise efforts found in the middle of Nirvana albums ("Territorial Pissings," etc.). The last songs, with the exception of "Wattershed" (which just flat-out rocks), are a more atmospheric affair that really show off some of the most well-developed songwriting that Grohl has done in his entire career.

If you're just getting into the Foos, ignore the "One By One" album and start here instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad debut
While not as refined as subsequent efforts, the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut is a solid effort punctuated by the first three songs on the album.

The album breaks out of the gates with a lot of energy and gusto: "This is a Call" and "I'll Stick Around" are catchy tunes.

"Big Me" is a quick pit stop while on the pounding tracks freeway, but certainly still fits the album.

Starting with "Alone+Easy Target" the remaining songs are all good but less memorable and perhaps just a tiny bit rough around the edges.

The Foo Fighters are one of my favorite bands; this is probably my least favorite album by them, but only because the others are even better, not because this one is no good. This album gets lots of praise (well deserved) and some detraction, too (mostly Nirvana copycat or Nirvana capitalizers stuff) -- I tend to think that each side has some valid points, in fact. Whatever side you subscribe to, though, I think it'd be to your benefit to give both the band and their debut effort a try...I have little doubt that you'll be glad you did.

3-0 out of 5 stars A little raw, but shows promise
The debut effort of the Foo Fighters lacks the sophistication of later efforts, but you definitely get an idea that this band is going to work. A driving rhythm section propels most of the songs, and while this makes them catch your attention, the vocals are buried.. The softer songs like "Big Me," make an effort to break through the constant pounding, but come off as a bit of an afterthought. Later works show more sophistication, but you will definitely see the seeds for that success planted here.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great classic rock
This cd is very good. Dave Grohl is a genius, and absolutely shows it here. It is extremely melodic and meaningful. My favorite songs are "I'll stick around" and "Big Me". Check it out. ... Read more

Ahhh blastitude: I too was at that fateful Oly, WA outdoor show. A wedding was letting out across the street. Can U imagine the reception?? Thought the AMPS were busted. Check out recording on "International Pop Underground" live compilation, vinyl version only. Tru magick, son. Abstracted Dada metal? Naw, these guys were into some serious spellcasting and here tis, their sorcerous quest come to a screaming collision, fuel fumes a million miles wide. This was the first cd I wore out.

So, my best friend is away at college right now. He shares a house with three complete morons who listen to techno, indie rock and noise; and buy Aphex Twin mousepads on Ebay. These people get incredibly annoying really fast. Whenever my friend wants some time to himself, he throws a Melvins album on the turntable and those three roommates are practically out of the state before the needle hits the groove. I think Eggnog is one of the better Melvins albums to throw on that will make you, the listener, feel completely satisfied and make those idiots down the hall run for cover. The Melvins are the smartest, heaviest and most original bands around. If this isn't a good enough recommendation then you probably own a Squarepusher nightlight.

4-0 out of 5 stars ...I don't feel so good...
"Wispy" is one of the best Melvins songs ever. It begins with pounding drums that blast into a frenzy of feedback and insanity. Then drums and bass pound out a jerky rhythm while Buzzo moans about being boiled alive or something. Then a bizarre scream erupts and you get the feeling that he's either going to die or.....well, die. The bass and drums rock out behind this for a few seconds, then...ah! a return to the pounding drums from the beginning. Then it's all over. If this sounds intriguing to you, then pick this cd up. Then listen to all four songs, which are all really good, and buy every other Melvins album that you can get your paws on. Then you will know the true meaning of Rock.

5-0 out of 5 stars MELVINS
This is pretty intense, even by the Melvins' standards. Charmicarmicat might be their slowest, most doom-filled song ever. They played it while opening for Nirvana, and you should have seen the crowd's faces. They were stunned! it was great to see these little kids who came to see Nirvana being exposed to something a little more...no, a lot more...good.

This little four song ep has enough bite to literally eat you alive. Plenty of feedback to level a small hungarian village. If you enjoy listening to music that doesn't suck then I would suggest that you check this out ep out. ... Read more

I woke up and looked out of the window and lo! it was raining and the clouds looked like porridge.
I grabbed my iPod and frantically searched it for something to cheer me up. The fannies jumped out at me.
Needless to say the Fannies did their job.In my head the sun is shining and this remains the greatest testiment to one of our greatest bands ever.
Long live Teenage Fanclub.

5-0 out of 5 stars Generous and selfless
There's a Teenage Fanclub song called 'Norman 3' (alas, not on this collection) that follows its first verse with 'Yeah, I'm in love with you, I'm in love with you, and I know that it's you'. After this simple chorus you expect a second verse but you don't get one. Instead the chorus is repeated, without variation, another TEN times - way beyond any conventions of songcraft. At first you feel surprise, then you start to believe that the singer is really in love, then a kind of euphoria takes over as you start to share the same feeling. Another song of theirs (on this collection) starts with a selfless expression of love that must be unique in rock music: 'I don't want control of you. Doesn't matter to me. The very heart and soul of you are places I wanna see'.

Teenage Fanclub sing songs of love. Love for their partners, love for nature (the Scottish Highlands in particular) and love for the planet. Their songs are generous and selfless. They have no trace of archness, hipness or postmodern irony about them. Their songs have gorgeous melodies, aching harmonies and neat arrangements played on jangly guitars. Although they have learnt a great deal from the Beatles and the Byrds, they are definitely their own men. In my humble opinion they are the finest songwriters working today. This CD is an excellent collection of some of their best songs. You should buy it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A forgotten band on the landscape of good pop music...
Over a decade ago, amidst the grunge period in alternative music's hey day, Teenage Fanclub was quietly releasing albums on the same SubPop imprint that birthed hundreds of alt/grunge/punk bands that we've all come to know and love. I remember hearing a song of theirs on a compilation, thinking how out of place it sounded among other more disjunct and chaotic members of the imprint, and how a band like this would never reach the pinnacle of success seen by bands with less skill and purity that they possess...because Teenage Fanclub makes the music that you don't fall in love with at first sight, you ease into it until it becomes a comfort....like an old recliner in the living room that's been worn down to your shape...

I've always said that Teenage Fanclub is what the Beach Boys would be if they grew up today and didn't surf. And while this can't really be the perfect album (being a best of...retrospective kind of effort), it's a worthy addition to the collection of anyone trying to get caught up, or needing a crash course in one of the most underrated bands in the world.

Teenage Fanclub played before the Brit-pop invasion, and they're playing just as well after we saw it come and go. Their mix of relaxed lyrics and jangly guitars don't really fit into a genre other than pop, but it doesn't have to. They create the kind of sad, sweet music that manages to have some prestige to it, rather than just sound cheesy or hollow.

"Your Love Is the Place Where I Come From" is a short acoustic number that tugs at all the right strings, while "Ain't That Enough" is the closest proof I can find to the Beach Boys comparison stated above. But even looking at the song titles, "The World'll Be OK", "I Don't Want Control Of You", "Don't Look Back", they sing with reckless abandon about love, loss, peace, etc.....things that should warrant a roll of the eyes but strangely work in their context.

Buy this, and if you like what you hear, go buy the album "Songs from Northern Britain". Find out why Teenage Fanclub has lasted the test of time, and never had to change their tune.

There were no bands more fun, more diverse, more intelligent, and more talented then the members of Brinsley Schwartz and NRBQ. That is unless you were a Teenage Fanclub fan. While I disagree with a couple selections, this CD is still great enough to prove that they will be forever remembered. Get it and you'll feel good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Meaty Pop
Somehow the greatest albums always elude your collection; their discovery, devourment and gospel spread providing temporary entertainment while espousing the truthful glee I displayed on the back of my WLOZ t-shirt, "A Drop of Honey in an Endless Sea of Top 40 Vomit." Run out now and get your copy of Teenage Fanclub: 4760 Seconds

My circuitous route to Scot Pop heaven was begun in the Connells lyric that starts their latest (and final?) release, "Old School Dropouts".

Morning lands like aeroplanes wrecked inside my bed.
Your favorite Teenage Fanclub song is knocking around my head.
In fits and starts remembering the things I should regret
but I don't want to sanitize my thoughts just yet.

I downloaded the Fanclub album from emusic.com just a month before this wonderful source of entertainment was sold and torn to digital shreds in the wake of the music industry's rush to sell bite-size britney pieces for 99 cents. This album is solid, meaty and deserving of your full attention while you ponder why you would ever feel so wonderfully happy and intelligent all the while belting out lyrics that could make Taylor Hanson proud.

OK everyone, grab your lovely white iPod earplugs and start singing;

She wears denim wherever she goes
Says she's gonna get some records by the Status Quo
Oh yeah... Oh yeah... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Are you gonna sit and watch me, watch me go Down
I love this recording. It's a lot like Pretty On the Inside or Live Through This, so don't think it's gonna be like that Celebrity Skin crap. If this were longer and had tracks like Baby doll or Burn Black it'd be better than Live Through This. This represents Hole truefully, even better than POTI does. It has decent artwork. I'm gonna give a review for each song:

Over the Edge- I own this same version on a specialty bootleg, so no surprise, it's a great cover. Played nicely & has great lyrics. Great riffs. Pale Blue Eyes- I own this song, too, on a specialty bootleg, It's live and is from a great artist, Lou Reed, very nice live version, although not like original. Drown Soda- This is a totally awesome song w/ nice lyrics. Deserved better attention than it got. (Buying this cd is worth this song alone). Greatest song on cd, one of Hole's best, one of the best songs ever. Dollparts- an older different version. Almost as good as the one on LTT, so an awesome (one of best Hole songs) song that everyone knows. Acoustic. Violet- Not as much screaming as original, which is strange cuz' it's an old version. A bit different than that of Ltt, but it's still very good. Forming/Hot Chocolate Boy- Not only are they both covers w/ good names, they are combined into one song. The forming part is better. This song has interesting lyrics. A part of it seems to remind one of New Wave, but it's a raw rock song like the rest. It has a great beginning and end.

Only complaint: way too short. About 18 min. long!! So, everyone buy it. Especially Hole fans. Great introduction to people who have never heard Hole.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cover distracts you from the music
Great Ep, for advent or old Hole days lovers! (by old hole days I mean before 1994.) I picked this Ep up at a used music store for about $10.00 Cdn. Good buy, it includes rare tracks from their show at the Whiskey (feb.11.1992),also has rare john peel session tracks from BBC radio (nov. 1992). I'll go through the tracks one by one, 1. Over the Edge- a cover of Greg Sage's song , the only produced song on the EP, is a pretty good song overall,grungy but very good. 2. Pale Blue Eyes- a cover of the Velvet Undergrond's pale blue eyes. It's a live song so you expect that it is loud and mixed together. 3. Drown Soda- Excellent song! this time not a cover written by hole it's a good relic for hole fans. It also sounds good live(MTV Unplugged) 4. Doll Patrs- A shorter grungy version of the live through this version, excellent song as well. 5. Violet- also a grungy version of the live through this verison, personally I like it better! 6. A mixed up horrible song, the singing drones and the instiment are mixed in together. The worst track by far. Only a short 18 minutes but somehow it seems longer.

5-0 out of 5 stars just what any HOLE fan is craving!
Right from the start,the album sucks you in and no matter how you try and fight it,you can't get out.I bought this Hole album about4 or so years ago,and it's a regular in my CD player.Everytime I hear "Over the Edge", undoubtedly my fave track on the record,it's like I'm hearing it for the first time.You know,when you get that little thrill when you hear the first power chords.it may be a remake of a Wipers song,written by Greg Sage,but Hole makes it their own.Another great cover track is "Forming/Hot Chocolate Boy",which sounds so hyper and crazed that by the time the just-over-one-minute track ends,you find yourself wishing to a higher power that it indeed was much longer.The demo version of "Violet,"recorded in 1991,is very different from the version that appeared on "Live Through This",with more of a stripped down,slower-tempo feel and is terrific.The acoustic demo "Doll Parts" isnt as strong as the LTT version,but it still takes the cake.The other two tracks,an early version of "Drown Soda" and a cover of "Pale Blue Eyes"arent too memorable for me,although "Pale Blue Eyes" is played live at the Whiskey,and is very raw and personal.I recommend this CD,its absolutely great.The Photo inside the booklet is of an early publicity shot of Hole,with Courtney,Eric,Jill Emery,and Caroline Rue-the original Hole lineup.Also,the back cover photo of the band shows Courtney looking positively gorgeous,very blank and spacy looking. It was before she started looking real "grunge" and just looked very cool punk rock.buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars hole is my favorite

3-0 out of 5 stars A good one, but not their best
I have this one on vinyl because I'm a fanatical Hole fan ... but it's genuinely not their best. Deffinately start with 'Live Through this' ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have
If you love soundarden, this is a good buy.Its got two songs from an excellent album (ultramega OK). PLUS an erie, dark song sort of possesing song-TOY BOX, which has got to be one of their best songs. MY advice is to buy it while its still in print

2-0 out of 5 stars forgettable
I have been a big soundgarden fan since 1988, but i didn't like this CD...

3-0 out of 5 stars Only three songs, but of high quality
The "Flower" Ep contains only three songs: "Flower", "Head Injury" and "Toy box". "Flower" and "Head Injury" are both featured in Soundgarden's excellent album "Ultramega OK", while "Toy box" is only to be found on this Ep.If you're a Soundgarden fan, this Ep is a must, as "Toy box" is one of their all time best. If you're not, I would spend my hard earned cash on something else. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Where have they been all my life?
Four years ago, I heard Freak Power while visiting my brother in Geneva. I liked it so much he made me a tape that listened to ceaselessly. Unfortunately, upon returning to the U.S. and desperately wanting to own the CD, I found that not a single store owned a copy of either album these guys put out ("More of everything...For everybody," and ""Drive-Thru Boot"). I even checked music stores in Vancouver and Toronto during a cross-country trip throughout North America, to no avail.To make a long and boring story short, I finally found copies of both albums (imports, which I generally try avoid due to their inexplicably outlandish price) and gorged myself on Freak Power's power.

Just so you know, the only reason I gave this album, which is a best-song amalgam of the two, a four is because their sound is now a little outdated (as can insinuated by a mere reference to the fact that Fat Boy Slim USED to produce their work, and that they are often mistaken for the Getaway People and G-Love).Despite these trivialities, Freak Power has a sound and style that will always lift a lover of funky, optimistic beats and lyrics to a place where people dance, sing-long, or just sit down and chill out with a smile drawn lazily across their faces. All the tracks on this album refuse to stray far from the boundries of quality, inevitable making the album consistently enjoyable and skip-ahead-free.

If, like me, you want an album overlooked by the masses, yet capable of being enjoyed by all, then consider yourself lucky enough to have read this and buy it. You don't even have to leave the country.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Power of The Freak
This is an upbeat albumn that really sets its own funk rhythm.With lyrics refering to the book "Electric Kool Aid Acid Test" (by TomWolfe), each song has a beat and a story of its own.If you want somethingfun, light and downright FUNKY to listen to - this is the albumn for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Turn On Tune In and Feel Good!
This CD is hot!It is awesome music that puts you in a good moodautomatically with its upbeat tempo and smooth sounds.Many of the soundsand lyrics are different than American stuff so it's fun to have somevariety in a music collection.It's also fun to rock out and sing alongwith the songs.I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to put some groovein thier step. ...
