Not only do a own this, I have it on double vinyl and CD. This surely is one of the most underrated releases of the 1990s. I can only agree with J Wells, that this sound as fresh today as it did nearly 15 years ago. friends of mine have raved about Altar Bridge and the like, so I played them Dropped - Ooops! Yes dudes this is where it came from!

The songs are individual masterpeices, especially the opening duo of Goddess/ Closer that run into each other and I tend to consider them as one epic anthem. Drowning is truely classic melancholic rock with fantastic vocal delivery and incredible guitar interplay that more texture than shred but impressive all the same.

Mama Moses and Me is a real stand out track which has one of the funkiest metal riffs of all time.

The production on this album is PERFECT. It's been my reference point for anything I've done in the studio since 1993. The only album that comes close for production is Badmotorfinger.

If I were the record label, I'd re-release it and market this to all the kids of today as if it were a new band. The world was not ready for this in 1993, it is now!

Now you'd think by now, that a rock album made in 1993, would have dated pretty bad. This hasn't. It sounds like it could have been made yesterday. Every song on the record is plodding heavy rock gem. I'll compare them to Soundgarden and Tool because of their subtly distinct melodic -> heavy sound.

Their first album was catchy when released, but ultimately dated because the production was too early 90s and gimicky. Dropped ditched the production gimics for pure rock: Guitars, bass, drums,and sublime vocals.

Favorite tracks - all of them - just consistently good.

I returned and listened to this again recently and was as mesmerised as I used to be by its scope and sheer depth. After being dropped by Epic (hence the janus-faced title) Mindfunk retreated to a forest idyll for six weeks, took hallucinogenics and rehearsed and rehearsed. The album was eventually recorded live and the album is awash with valve hisses and a remote ambience. You can almost hear the forest in the mix, rising up through the writhing guitars; and you can feel the weight of the acid, the paranoid creepings at the edge of the sound, both in the tortured rhythms and the imagery in Pat Dubar's lyrics. As for the sound, its hard to pin down. Its part psychedelia, (of the Sabbath variety), part punk agression and part otherworld-mantra. The guitars of Jason Everman and Louis Svitek are astonishing, weaving inticate webs of sound, butterfly-light at times and brutal and dirty at others. And the rhythm section of John Monte and Shawn Johnson literally keep the sound afloat, sounding like ancient riverbeds or shifting tectonic plates. Pat Dubar is extraordinary: if there is a more passioned vocal performance I have not heard it. He sounds like a creature of the forest at times so intense is he and when he bellows, "I don't know if I believe", you can see the abyss he is over.
Overall, if you look for intensity in your music then you really must get this. Seek it out, it's an hour of beauty and terror.

I can only echo the sentiments of other reviewers here. This album has depth, groove and vibe a mile wide, a forgotton masterpiece of the 90's which sounds as fresh today as it ever did, in fact it gets better with time. Terry Date's production is fantastic (responsible for Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger as well). I have two copies of this on CD and two copies on double vinyl.... yes, it's THAT good! Do your ears a favour and add this classic psychedelic doomy grunge masterpiece to your collection.

I bought this album 10 years ago. It's still as awesome now as it was back then. Regardless of what this costs you, it's worth every penny.

As ALL the other reviewers have stated so far, this album has immense sound quality, production is brilliant and all songs from first to last are amazing. I've been a fan since the 90's but that said my review, I feel, is unbiased. Check out some of their tunes on YouTube.. It'll make you come back and buy this album for sure!!!

Love this album! The quality is out of this world (almost like new) and the delivery was very swift. Arrived yesterday morning.
