One of the finest bands in a long time. The songs hold up well from that period. Lanegan's vocals match the Connors and Barrett Martin's heavy sound perfectly. Favorite songs:

Nearly Lost You - Guitar and bass welded together by the rhythm, w/ that beautful breakdown after the solo

Alice Said - the end part at about the 3:00 mark, when the guitar turns into various shades of distortion is great... then a drum roll and suddenly the bass pops in, locks it down, and the riff comes back, w/the chanting vocals a few seconds later - perfect segue!

Shadow of the Season - After the first verse/chorus, when the guitars rev up - it amplifies Lanegans voice and the pressure inherent in the song

There are so many individual moments of perfection. It's a pity these guys may be ignored when the time comes.

O.K. onto the 90's: (& anyone reading this page knows I like Screaming Trees)

"After the phony universe of 80's metal, we got the moaning, groaning, atonal music (ahem) that was grunge. You thought the senseless screaming of 80's rock was bad? Well, the 90's got rid of all that production, and what did they substitute it with? MUMBLING... duh. Oh, & by the way, everybody was just as pretentious in the 90's as they were in the 80's, so nothing really changed at all".

So there you have it - the garbage chute dreck of 4 decades of music. The 50's kept it pure from the start. What did we get afterwards? the low grade dreck of the Beatles, Zeppelin, GNR, and Nirvana, along w/a bunch of other unnameable crap. It's just that we all spend so much time pretending there was a mythical past that we can't see the forest for the trees.

Feeling better now?

Cheesecrop, where did you find all this stuff from? It sounds to me a bit like some guy's enraged rant. I guess he felt he needed to blow off some steam.

It's all from me. I am that guy, & I simply got sick & tired of hearing yet another person bash modern rock.

I guess it's the fact that so many people want to build a utopia in the past to substitute for the present. Most of the time it's people who can't get a grip on the fact that the music they liked is being pushed aside for something else. It's a quick & easy scam to do revisions on the past so that you can lord it over someone.

AARRGGHH!!! I finally cracked, warden!!! (lol!)

Actually, Keebord, he wants to have me tarred and feathered...I am the source of his rage!!!!

As a matter of fact, I'm trying to come up with something else that will really drive him over the age...make him try to dance with the "Rocky" sculpture...
