4.0 out of 5 stars Pure laid back psychedelia!, 14 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
One of greatest things about the 60's and 70's is how the bands from that eras influenced musicians in later times. It becomes apparent very early in this fine collection of songs that Mark Lanegan and the heavyweight Conner brothers listened to a healthy slice of The Doors when they were learning their trade in their collective dingy garages. Lanegans voice has been obviously honed by his rock n'roll lifestyle and you can almost hear the moment on this CD when the cigarettes finally took their toll. This is no bad thing given the gravelly quality it has inflicted on his Morrisson-esque vocals. The songs on this are a collection of the bands years on the SST label, spanning 1985 - 89 and there are more highs than lows on the 21 songs on offer. Don't Look Down almost gives you vertigo just listening to it and Transfiguration, Back Together and Walk Through To This Side are truly psychedelic sounding gems. There are some really brooding sounds on tracks like Grey Diamond Desert and Subtle Poison. With 21 tracks to go through there are too many to try and quickly describe. Screaming Trees differ in sound from other bands from the Washington / Seattle area in the sense that Nirvana, Soundgarden e.t.c. were actually coming with a sound which was different to what anyone had heard before while ST were in effect recycling a sound which had been lost since the demise of The Doors and making it their own. Nonetheless it fitted in equally well with the whole grunge movement and if you own any music from that era Screaming Trees are another band I can recommend you add to your collection and starting with Anthology is as good a place as any to start.
