With such a distinctive style (Jazzy/country/rocky - does sound gd honestly) and singing voice it is too easy to label this incredibly lifting album similar throughout and ultimately boring when you first listen to it. However, this would be a grosse mis-interpretation of what I beleive to be one of the best albums ever (a line that I realise is thrown around too easily).
Although the lyrics are for the most part rather depressing, the music itself is anything but, the xenith of the album being the songs 'Change' that follows into 'No Rain' (My personal favourite). The more I listen to this album the more I adore its simple charm that envelops u rather than confronts. Like many artist such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Jeff Buckley and Pearl Jam, Blind Melons beauty starts with their lead singers voice - a high, quiet, almost rasping voice that should not really appeal but actually sounds amazing. It does not end here, its levels of guitars and varying musical form make this an overwhelming experience (If one resist to its subtle charm). O yeh, must say that it is really a summer album, if u know wot I mean
