A place to post something youre rediscovering after a period of at least 5 years, preferably 10.
I havent listened to this in at least 15 years and even then I wasnt all that into it.
By 95 I was really burnt out on the American grunge thing and had bounced to early drum and bass and BritPop of the Blur/Verve stripe.
I think it had more to do with genuine earnestness being replaced by fake self-seriousness (SEE: Live, Smashing Pumpkins around this time, etc) and had all seemed like a huge drag.
Having said that, this record here should be guilty of all that overwrought heaviness too, but listening to it this week it actually feels much warmer than I had expected it would. There's a lot of humanity and life in what you might expect to be texbook grunge dirges. Maybe that's due to the baggage of the era.
