Album Review

Fair or unfair, Mother Love Bone is destined to be described as "the band Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard were in before Pearl Jam." But in fact, Apple is a solid offering that can stand on its own merits. Even if Pearl Jam had never come about, Apple would be well worth obtaining. Though MLB proudly declared its allegiance to Seattle in a 1990 interview with Cash Box, Apple really doesn't fall into the alternative rock category or inspire comparisons to bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, or Soundgarden. Rather, MLB were clearly Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith devotees, and it's hard to miss the influence of Zep's Robert Plant and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler when lead singer Andrew Wood tears into such intense yet melodic hard rock boogie as "Capricorn Sister," "Stardog Champion," and "Captain Hi-Top." This was a band with great potential, but sadly, one can only speculate on what would have happened had it had a chance to develop.

i've owned this cd since it came out in 1990...never fails to blow me away every time i listen too it. words can't describe this cd......just buy it!

the rock world needed Andy Wood.

if you're a pearl jam fan, it's good to know their roots by getting this album. their Ten album was but a glimpse of the type of glamour and grace that andy wood's sound gave mother love bone. unfortunately, the cd was poorly engineered; if you can get your hands on an original vinyl pressing, i would recommend grabbing it for whatever the price is and listen to it… only there can you really feel the sound of stone's genius on guitar.

This apple is a real peach

Buy this album! Apple is in the top five on the list of best records ever, any genre. If you like Pearl Jam, you'll wet yourself when you hear this.

Before Pearl Jam, there was Mother Love Bone. Future Pearl Jam members Stone Gossard (guitar) and Jeff Ament (bass) were founders of this Seattle-based glam/punk outfit, which was fronted by flamboyant singer Andrew Wood. But despite countless accolades from the press and their peers, the group's career was cut short before it could truly blossom due to tragedy. Both Gossard and Ament had previously been members of Seattle garage rockers Green River (a group that also included future Mudhoney members...
