Haunting and Full of Dark Beauty

For those who weren't lucky enough to experience this music first hand, let me tell you growing up in the '90s was bitter sweet, but music like this paved a path for those willing to listen. Most people know what the word "grunge" represents, personally I hate the term, but from that seattle area emerged a ton of great talent starting in the late '80s into the 90's. Mad Season contained a sample of some of those great groups, but expressed themselves in a different way then most bands in that era. This is what I'd call the Blues of the '90s. Layne Staley had a great gift of both lyric writing, and conveying the written words through a beautiful voice like no one else could. And though the subject matter is on the darker side, the message expresses hope and beauty. Like the essay in the hard copy, written by Barrett Martin, notes, "You need to have dark to contrast the light." So as you listen, don't think about what the media wants you to think about. It's not about being addicted to drugs, or the repercussions it has. It's about love and pain, dark and light, hope and fear, or whatever message you can gleam from it. Thank you Mad Season for giving us this music! I hope you receive the recognition you deserve for this masterpiece. And to Layne Staley and John Baker Saunders: your creations are immortal in this world; I hope you have found peace on the other side. Thank you for all you left for us.

Live at The Moore? Finally? For Real?

Maybe the best supergroup of all time but clearly the most overlooked and underexposed for certain. Glad to see The Moore show released to Audio. I've owned the VHS for years.


Bought this album the day it came out back in 1995. Glad they have a special edition now. This album is one of the greatest rock albums of my generation. McCready & Staley = Magic.


Formed: 1995 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Quite a few side projects containing members of renowned Seattle-based rock bands appeared through the '90s. Most failed to expand past a small cult following comprised mainly of fans of their main bands (Brad, the Rockfords, Three Fish, Tuatara, etc.), but there were a few exceptions to rule, especially Temple of the Dog and Mad Season. The latter outfit included members of Alice in Chains (vocalist Layne Staley), Pearl Jam (guitarist Mike McCready), and the Screaming Trees (drummer Barrett Martin),...
