2.0 out of 5 stars Nirvana Unplugged has their best stuff on it, 9 July 2002
This review is from: Too High to Die (Audio CD)
I bought 'Too High To Die' after seeing the Meat Puppets appear on MTV's Nirvana Unplugged programme. The album doesn't really live up to expectations with most of the songs being distinctly average, apart from the three highlights, namely the songs "Lake Of Fire" (which is 'hidden' at the end), "Roof With A Hole" and "Backwater". Much of the album has a bluesy feel to it with lots of fancy guitar work. The guys obviously know how to handle a guitar but overall I still feel a bit disappointed.

John Higgins says:
Lake of Fire originally appears on MPs 1984 album Meat Puppets II, considered by many (Kurt Cobain included) to be a landmark in US indie music. I recommend that you listen to that and its successor, Up On The Sun. Coming as it did after Cobain championed them by covering those early tacks, this is the most 'mainstream' of their albums and not really reflective of their uniqueness. It's certainly unfair (and outright incorrect, IMO) to say that the three tracks covered by Nirvana are their best!
