Speaks his mind on music & movies!
CB was pushed towards this album by a writer/musician, John Armstrong. Living in the Pacific Northwest he had his finger on the music pulse in the area. I can’t remember exactly what he wrote about this album other than he liked it. That was enough for me to go and grab it.
Right from the opening track I dug the music. CB likes hard rock and this is what he got. The band explodes. Hard, aggressive, good vocals and lyrics. Really liked the sound these guys were making and that was just the first song. The songs just keep coming making one very good album. It doesn’t stop. I really liked Cobain’s guitar.
This was a fresh sound and Armstrong knew what CB would like. It was just hard rock that appealed to me. I had no preconceived ideas so I was going at it with fresh ears. I never heard the “grunge” term used, I think that came later. ‘Come As You Are’ is just a really cool tune. Three guys making some really good noise! ‘Nevermind’ is an album that really grabbed me. Nirvana was a band that also grabbed me. Music needs a kick in the ass once in a while . Nirvana kicked it.
I liked this album then and still like it today. It’s about the music for me and this is some good stuff. So there are some good opinions out there, you just have to find them (Like I find from you folks). I like discovering good new music and this was some of that.
(John Armstrong was part of The Vancouver music scene back when. Check out this clip of a band he was in.)
