Product Description

Product Description

Meat Puppets II;was a 180-degree departure from its predecessor,confusing old fans and creating new ones.Kurt Loder gave it a four-star review in Rolling Stone,calling it one of the funniest and most enjoyable albums of 1984,while a bewildered Robert Hilburn proclaimed the Puppets far more of an acquired promising though wilfully unfocused rock act,in the Los Angeles Times.For this reissue,the album has been expanded to include 7 additional tracks.The Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band but established their own unique style,blending punk with country and psychedelic rock,and featuring frontman Curt Kirkwood's warbling vocals.They have influenced various rock bands such as Nirvana,Soundgarden,Dinosaur Jr,Sebadoh and Pavement.

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...

What an amazing, truly exhilarating album! From the furious punk of 'Split Myself In Two' to the glorious groove of 'Whistling Song', this album is a work of art, and , without a doubt, one of the greatest albums to have been put out there by any artist! My personal favourite: "I'm a Mindless Idiot', the most catchy instrumental song I've ever heard!

Hey y'all meat pup's fans,
This was the first Pup's album i bought and i NEVER lived to regret it. Bought like many puppets fans after hearing unplugged. I was blown away by those famous three tracks, escpicially Plateau and Lake Of Fire. A lonely guy named Kurt loved this album, and so should you.
It gave a nice base for them to build on after the frankly dismal 'Meat Puppets (I)' album. If you want punk there's nothing wrong with MP I. However, if you want sweet calm chill music with a splatter of psycadelica, MP II is gonna be your first MP album of many.
Categorising MP II is impossible, as it clearly comes from many influences. However, Kurt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets leading man) described them as "world beat" and i think that kinda sums it up.
MP II itself is an amazing album. The diversity between songs such as 'Split Myself In Two' to say 'Aurora Borealis' is simply mind-blowing. Some of the guitar work is ultimate.
'Split Myself In Two' strikes a dischord right away. The singings out of tune, the guitar and bass are rushed and the drums pump to keep up with the chaos, perfect thing to come home to after a bad day.
'Magic Toy Missing' is "about how the moon is really just a pattern showing where to put your spirograph toy". Showing the genius (or alternate thinking) of Curt. A nice banjo-style instrumental.
'Lost' is amazing, showing Curt's Arizona roots amazingly. You will have to listen to it hard to get the real meaning.
'Plateau' - a famous track. The compostion of the solo strives through creating a mind-blowing sunrise of emotion. Maybe the actual track could have been performed better though...
However, 'Aurora Borelias' is the ultimate in what i call 'chill' music.

A beautiful album, harking back to the days, pre-elvis i suppose, when rock and roll music was made by freaks, outsiders and weirdos, with all the hysteria, and, yes, vulnerabilty, that this stance would lend to the music.

This album has everything from crazy punk to psychedelic mellow rock and I personally love it! I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes nirvana, hendrix etc. Very good indeed.
