Product Description

Product Description

Meat Puppets II was a 180-degree departure from its predecessor,confusing old fans and creating new ones.Kurt Loder gave it a four-star review in Rolling Stone,calling it one of the funniest and most enjoyable albums of 1984,while a bewildered Robert Hilburn proclaimed the Puppets far more of an acquired promising though wilfully unfocused rock act in the Los Angeles Times.
The Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band but established their own unique style,blending punk with country and psychedelic rock,and featuring frontman Curt Kirkwood's warbling vocals.They have influenced various rock bands such as Nirvana,Soundgarden,Dinosaur Jr,Sebadoh and Pavement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer brilliance... 30 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Meat Puppets 2 is, simply, a mind expanding, and then mind blowing album. We open with a country tinged hardcore classic in the form of 'Split myself in two' and then head on a rollercoaster journey of exotic and pure soundscapes and observations on life through the lyrics. Curt Kirkwood's guitar work is simply amazing.
However, the standout must be track 5 of the album 'Aurora Borealis'. Quite simply, this song is possibly the greatest piece of music ever committed to disc...if you've ever been to a desertor in the Scottish highlands this song will evoke memories and visions...it's like a musical form of an acid trip (one would imagine!)...
Put simply, open your mind and give the Puppets a try. I own both this and 'Up on the Sun', both CDs permenantly in my CD player (With 'II' playing as I write this). If it were possible to rate this higher than 5 stars I would...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing in every way! 26 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
What an amazing, truly exhilarating album! From the furious punk of 'Split Myself In Two' to the glorious groove of 'Whistling Song', this album is a work of art, and , without a doubt, one of the greatest albums to have been put out there by any artist! My personal favourite: "I'm a Mindless Idiot', the most catchy instrumental song I've ever heard!

This album has everything from crazy punk to psychedelic mellow rock and I personally love it! I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes nirvana, hendrix etc. Very good indeed.
