Album Review

Since the late '90s, onetime Meat Puppet leader Curt Kirkwood has been playing solo acoustic sets. But due to his work with a "new look" Meat Puppets, the all-star Eyes Adrift, and a project that was over almost as quickly as it began (Volcano), Kirkwood didn't have the opportunity to embrace the aforementioned style in the studio. That was, until Kirkwood's first ever solo release in 2005 — Snow.
