Well, you may have heard this a million times, but hey, this is thepsychadelic 'epic' of the pups'. After a half dozen U-turns of previousalbums, the spagetti junction arrived. Mirage. It just redefines youropinion on alternate 80's music.
Some of the songs, notably the title track and 'The Mighty' are justamazing. Unfortunetly, a couple of the songs are 'fillers', notably Track6, 'Get on Down' (funny video thou) and 11, 'Love Our Children forever'.However, when an average track is like 'Leaves' or 'A hundred miles', youend up with one swell album.
After a disappointing first two albums (the second of which is now one oftheir most popular, proabably due to Cobain using 3 songs from it onunplugged), a highly unrated 3rd and a seemingly invisible fourth, Miragehad to be good. Although, again, it could have sold better, now everyoneknew a band called 'The Meat Puppets' werent just a bunch of acid-trippin'desert-screwing, rock-throwing hippies. They were musicians and damn goodones at that.
Always a nice chill album. Wherever you are, this album will calm youdown.
