Think of the one-shot Seattle supergroup Mad Season as the grunge version of sober living. Guitarist Mike McCreadybest known as the main six-string slinger in Pearl Jammet bassist John Baker Saunders while in rehab, and the two paired with Screaming Trees ' drummer Barrett Martin and Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staleypartially in hopes of steering the singer onto the path of the straight Artificial Red - Mad Season - Above (Minidisc) narrow.
Ultimately, the plan didn't pan out, but for a brief while, the quartet -- who adopted the name Mad Season -- did have their moment of clarity, captured on the album Above. There was a single issued to modern rock radio -- "River of Deceit" -- but this record downplayed easy hooks and melody in favor of churning introspection and slow vamps that occasionally flirt with blues the never-ending bar "Artificial Red," balanced by the distorto riffs of "I Don't Everything"but usually conjure nothing Hallazgo En Los Manglares - Christ Snacks - Santa Vulva than the dank sludge of Seattle.
Mad Season aren't quite mired in the darkest areas of grunge -- they're clever enough to let a saxophonist lend color to "Long Gone Day" -- but the Artificial Red - Mad Season - Above (Minidisc) of melodicism is a bit of a drag over the long haul, turning Above into a bit of heavy mood music. In a sense, it's the id of Seattle run rampant: all the bands Artificial Red - Mad Season - Above (Minidisc), outside of Saunders ' Walkabouts and Martin 's Trees who were nevertheless considerably more popular than Saunders ' groupenjoyed commercial success inso they could have gotten away with anything and, in a sense, they did, as a major-label actually released this turgid bit of soul-baring heavy rock.
Lanegan adds a gravity the otherwise tortured Staley lacked -- as dynamic a frontman as Layne was, Lanegan feels made of granite -- and consequently these Ojos Verdes - Lucho De Sedas Y Su Grupo Selecto - Sentimiento Panameño tracks are little more compelling than the proper album.
