Format: Audio CD
This is where Screaming Trees made their first perfect album- the previous year's 'Uncle Anethesia' had been fine song-wise: the production & mixing gave it a flat sound. Here producer Don Fleming (Dinosaur Jr, Hole, Posies,Teenage Fanclub) & mixer Andy Wallace ('Nevermind', 'Grace')give the perfect sound to the tuneful sonic barrage that was the Trees.
Screaming Trees were overlooked in the whole grunge (non)phenemenon- see Naomi Klein's comments on its apolitical pseudo-revolution in 'No Logo'. Starting off as a band closer to Butthole Surfers & Black Sabbath, they did not develop as songwriters until the early 90's. This shift was precipitated by singer Mark Lanegan's foray into solo work- producing the brilliant 'The Winding Sheet' with Mike Johnson. The songs on 'UA' were of a much better quality than before: Lay Your Head Down standing out. The lineup changed with Mike Pickeral being ousted by multi-instrumentalist & brilliant drummer, Barrett Martin (who has also played on 'Rated R', 'Up' and Lanegan's solo albums). So, everything came together on this brilliant album- almost as great as the stratospheric 'Dust' (the Trees final release).
'Shadow of the Season' is an epic opener- moving into guitar overload with ease-imagine a concise Led Zep...'Nearly Lost You' & 'Dollar Bill' were the singles. The former was featured in 'Singles' & has a Cream/Hendrix flavour to its wonderful radiosong construction. The latter is an acoustic based ballad they would perfect with 'Sworn & Broken'; imagine a grunge 'Wonderwall'!...'More or Less' is a midpaced track that has hooks aplenty- Lanegan's lyrics fusing with the Connor-Bros. riffs...'Butterfly' is a precursor of 'Dust's brilliant 'Make My Mind'; this is close to the Trees live sound.

My first encounter with Screaming Trees was 'Dust' which I honestly thought couldn't be topped. How wrong was I?!?

Sweet Oblivion is the album I pull out when people try to tell me Nirvana and Pearl Jam were the Seatle grunge band to listen to.

Get this album, play it loud and enjoy. Simple as that.
