I really need to revisit the post S/T work.
I've never really bothered with their recent stuff. DuVall is a great singer but he always feels a bit of an odd fit for them to me.
he’s a great fit, but the band essentially switched to jerry’s band with duvall basically doing harmonies and backing parts. i don’t particularly think it’s a bad thing, but it’s certainly different from the dynamic layne and jerry had
Black Gives Way To Blue stands up to the work with Layne. The latter two albums have been more spotty though. It's like Jerry mostly sticks to writing sludgy riffs nowadays, making the songs all blend together. Their music used to be way more diverse.
BGWTB is so fucking good, A Looking In View riffs so hard
yeah man that riff rules
Acid Bubble ruled so fucking hard live
Just ripped half the songs on Dirt in response to this thread getting bumped. Thankful for the UG official tabs lol
yeah, man. jerry rips.
This is the best band
Felt like some JoF tonight, and now I’m onto S/T
Not many songs hit like Nutshell
I tryyyy to get away, and yet I stick around’
They are amazing live. Can’t wait for tours again.
Came to bump this thread to say something very similar. Lot of bangers on this record. Definitely seems like the upper end of the "reunion band" spectrum.
looking in view probably top 10 AIC song
Find me a better acoustic album than their MTV Unplugged session. You can't do it.
Oh hellllllll yes
One of my favorite songs! And what a line up, whew.
I love that song and that cover series and everyone involved, but this wasn’t my favorite cover they’ve done. Seemed a little uneven during verses and the Spoonman nod, while fun, was off. The Layne impression was very good though, and the sped up bridge had a great groove.
Somewhere Stephen Brodsky once posted a video of him covering the same song on a ukulele. That’s my preferred cover version.
i loved it tbh. brodsky also came up with the whole arrangement fwiw
this band is a very good band
also, always forget how phenomenal that Mad Season album is. maybe one of my favourite things to come out of 90s grunge
I've listened to the Mad Season record a bunch of times recently.
just revisited it again, and yup. "River of Deceit" and "Long Gone Day" are some of my favourite songs of the 90s, absolutely incredible
even the deluxe bonus tracks that they recorded with Mark Lanegan for a scrapped second album are great. "Black Book of Fear" is phenomenal
