Pretty awesome! Love his hysteric voice, and there are some real gems here. Combining noise and punk and alt rock. Truly before their time.

Wonderfully evocative of the Arizona the band grew up in, and insinuating brilliantly the anxious state of Kirkwood's mind. A terrific set of songs, played with passion.

Love it. Such a laidback sound, but a biting tone underneath. Don't prejudge this as stoner-rock.

I think some of the tracks are jammed on fast-forward.

I've been listening to this all night for the first time. All I can say is that this is one of the coolest albums ever. It's kind of like Wilco before Wilco was big. Maybe with Stephen Malkmus flare? Obviously, these acts came after this album, but it's easy to see that those guys certainly benefit from this album. Anyhow, this is great, I can't wait to get into it more.

Nobody believes me that I actually owned this album before Nirvana, but I did. I bought this in Elena Mae's in Arbroath on a whim. I had £5 burning a hole in my pocket and chose it because I liked the name of the band and the fact it had a little sticker on the sleeve warning any possible buyer that the tape dropout on the album was meant to be there and the album should not be returned to their local record shop.

From paladisiac 02/01/2012 17:14
You might've first heard a few of their songs covered on nirvana's 1994 unplugged performance. In their original form, they're two steps away from a line dance at times, saved by the askew (almost strained) punk delivery and guitars. Swirling punk together with country (cowpunk, anyone?), with some songs sounding like country with punk or hard rock thrown in, is a truly unique experience as of the early 80s. A couple of songs nirvana covered, "plateau" (i love the eerie, atmospheric guitars in this one) and "lake of fire" (near-sludge, anyone?), are the best of the bunch, but songs like "aurora borealis" can be just as stunning despite, and/or because of, the unique genre mix the meat puppets perform under. From hillbilly to heavy metal, with a little psychedelic thrown in, this is punk like no other.

As if the bands on SST in the 80's didn't have anything in common....
