Screaming Trees were overlooked in the whole grunge (non)phenemenon- see Naomi Klein's comments on its apolitical pseudo-revolution in 'No Logo'. Starting off as a band closer to Butthole Surfers & Black Sabbath, they did not develop as songwriters until the early 90's. This shift was precipitated by singer Mark Lanegan's foray into solo work- producing the brilliant 'The Winding Sheet' with Mike Johnson. The songs on 'UA' were of a much better quality than before: Lay Your Head Down standing out. The lineup changed with Mike Pickeral being ousted by multi-instrumentalist & brilliant drummer, Barrett Martin (who has also played on 'Rated R', 'Up' and Lanegan's solo albums). So, everything came together on this brilliant album- almost as great as the stratospheric 'Dust' (the Trees final release).
'Shadow of the Season' is an epic opener- moving into guitar overload with ease-imagine a concise Led Zep...'Nearly Lost You' & 'Dollar Bill' were the singles. The former was featured in 'Singles' & has a Cream/Hendrix flavour to its wonderful radiosong construction. The latter is an acoustic based ballad they would perfect with 'Sworn & Broken'; imagine a grunge 'Wonderwall'!...'More or Less' is a midpaced track that has hooks aplenty- Lanegan's lyrics fusing with the Connor-Bros. riffs...'Butterfly' is a precursor of 'Dust's brilliant 'Make My Mind'; this is close to the Trees live sound.Read more ›
Mark Lanegan's vocals are like torn silk, and the music is noisy yet melodic.
