Format: Audio CD
On this album, their fourth released in 1989, Screaming Trees began to sound less like the somewhat shouty band they had been and started to become a little more melodic. Mark Lanegan had started to actually sing rather than roar, and the album shows the first signs of his undoubted vocal talents. The guitar attack of Gary Lee Conner became a little more refined here as classic rock influences became apparent. Indeed his guitar work is very disciplined and concise throughout, with very few wasted notes, almost like an extension of the rhythm section.

However, Where the Twain Shall Meet is a kind of sludgey, droney guitar anthem. The guitars are quite downtuned here and sound really good, smouldering away with the requisite slacker attitude. Black Sun Morning is a great early grunge anthem. Lanegan's vocals here are all over the shop as he bawls his throat out, but the squalling guitars keep everything together, leading into an unashamedly big chorus. Van Conner's basswork is particularly good in this one, and the whole thing finishes up with some unexpected piano work almost taking it into the realm of Roxy Music.

Too Far Away is about as classic rock as it gets. It kicks off with a repeating guitar riff which would be fairly unremarkable until Lanegan spreads his giant vocal chords over the proceedings. His vocal here is a million miles away from Black Sun Morning and he sounds great. The song closes with some fairly pleasing "ba ba bas" over more squalling guitars. The guitars get dirtier for Subtle Poison, before things calm down a bit for Yard Trip #7, a kind of Doors-y slowish song.

THis is a truly classic album. The Screaming Tree's were the best band in Seattle long before anyone hopped on the bandwagon.This album saw the 'trees growing up,keeping their Door's-y psychadelia but mixing it with awesome songwriting.You should own this if you like any band that ever came out of Seattle.Cuz this is better.If you like music at all,you'd already own this.

Mark Lanegan is the best voice you can hear. Here, as a young Grunger, maybe 25 years ago, sounds fresh like ice and the chemical with the band mates rolls the Music higher and higher and higher, close to the End of the Universe.

Buzz Aplenty 24 Jan. 2002
By Kathy Fennessy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Buzz Factory" was the Screaming Trees' final recording for SST, but not their last stand as independent recording artists. They would follow up by spending a little quality time with Sub Pop prior to the release of their major label debut, "Uncle Anesthesia," two years later. Produced by the Trees and Jack Endino, "Buzz Factory" lives up to its title with buzz aplenty thanks to Gary Lee Conner's muscular guitar playing. The album is a solid send-off, which should come as little surprise--history will remember the Trees as one of the Northwest's most consistent bands. If they never had a hit on par with "Nevermind," nor did they ever release any lackluster (or uncharacteristic) recordings in a career spanning over 15 years.

"Where the Twain Shall Meet" and "Black Sun Morning" are two of the strongest selections. The latter doesn't just have a Soundgarden-style title--a lá "Black Hole Sun"--but even sounds a little like that hard rockin' Seattle quartet (who were also aligned with SST at the time), which is to say: more anthemic than usual. A sample from an interview briefing is slipped between "Yard Trip #7" and "Flower Web" ("The question will be what kind of trees you are; the reply will be 'Screaming Trees'").

Subtle Poison To Alter Your Mind 4 Dec. 1999
By "greymouser" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With Invisible Lantern and Uncle Anesthesia, Buzz Factory makes up the trilogy of masterpieces in which the Screaming Trees create the perfect combination between garage punk, hard rock and psychedelia. And mark the word create, because this is music of undeniable originality, despite its well known roots. Never in history has a band channeled sounds of such intoxicating and ragged beauty; mesmerizing melodies and stories from other dimensions are buried under layers of fuzzed guitars, intricate fills and, of course, Mark Lanegan's glorious, post-apocalyptic drawl. Don't worry about the sometimes inadequate production. These songs will throw themselves at your throat and never let go, while releasing a subtle, reality altering poison into your unsuspecting mind.

Mark Lanegan is the Lion King of rock. Gary Lee Conner is the lost link between Ed Kuepper and Jimmy Page. Mark Pickerel is the reincarnation of the thunder god. Van Conner has the bottle of superglue. A!nd Buzz Factory is a distorted marvel.

What can I say, I love the Screaming Trees 23 Aug. 2007
By Trent Rissover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Their later major-label stuff is great, but I like the SST era stuff alot more. It's quite psychedelic, and catchy, and Mark Lanegan's voice is youthfull and beautifull. There are only 2 things that I find lacking on this album. The first, though it's a long way from horrible, I wish the production was a little better, but that's not a big problem at all. The second thing, which is even less important, is that Gary Lee was not terrific at guitar soloing yet at this point in his career, and some of the solos go nowhere. Still, this is one of my favorite albums by the Trees, right after "Even If and Especially When". "Flower Web" is my personal favorite on this album.

Early and raw, before the seattle sound hoopla took center stage. Definitely one of my favorites. The trees sst years were the best in my opinion.
