This review is from: Meat Puppets II (Audio CD)
Meat Puppets 2 is, simply, a mind expanding, and then mind blowing album. We open with a country tinged hardcore classic in the form of 'Split myself in two' and then head on a rollercoaster journey of exotic and pure soundscapes and observations on life through the lyrics. Curt Kirkwood's guitar work is simply amazing.
However, the standout must be track 5 of the album 'Aurora Borealis'. Quite simply, this song is possibly the greatest piece of music ever committed to disc...if you've ever been to a desertor in the Scottish highlands this song will evoke memories and visions...it's like a musical form of an acid trip (one would imagine!)...
Put simply, open your mind and give the Puppets a try. I own both this and 'Up on the Sun', both CDs permenantly in my CD player (With 'II' playing as I write this). If it were possible to rate this higher than 5 stars I would...
