Mudhoney are a band often forgotten about in the grunge arena. Compared to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, The Screaming Trees et al, it isn't hard to see why. But that is not to say that Mudhoney had nothing to offer to the grunge genre.
Nearer in style to the fashionable garage rock of The Strokes and White Stripes, Mudhoney also showed the lighter side to grunge. It didn't have to be depressing.
This album is a classic show of what they offered, humour and parody. Song like Suck You Dry and Acetone contain all the elements of Grunge classics, heavily distorted guitars and drawling vocals.
This CD comes much recomended and is an antidote to any cheerless indie or rock, and certainly worth investing in if you are a fan of other grunge and have never experienced Mudhoney.

This album is a mix of compelled grunge and stadium rock mixed in with the mental fuzz that we call mudhoney. Mudhoney start their magnificent album with something called 0.38 i think it is a complete riptake of The immigrant ong by led zep. Its halarious. It also contains Suck you dry my personal favourite.
Do you know many other bands who shove 28 songs in there album, the closest for me is pixies wave of mutilation, if ur a mudhoney fan this is a certain buy for you. Mark Arm produces another album of fuzz for our brains to devour! Enjoy listening!
