Album Review

Growing up gracefully would seem to be a contradiction for a band as cheerfully vulgar as Mudhoney, but there's no mistaking that the members of the quintessential Seattle quartet are comfortable within their own skins. They know what they are, they know they're not gonna change their stripes, not even as they glare at middle age right in the face. If anything, they revel in being crotchety old gits on 2013's Vanishing Point, pledging allegiance to garage punk, dropping references to long-gone pop culture phenomena, happy to wallow in their misanthropy. And, unlike on the preceding The Lucky Ones — released way back in 2008; the five-year wait is the longest between Mudhoney records, signaling the band's slow descent into middle age — Mark Arm's savage wit is on full display, as he scrapes himself against all manner of modern irritations. Arm rails against "Chardonnay" popping up on a backstage rider and people acting like long-lost friends, gets revolted by the "Douchebags on Parade," facetiously sings a song of joy and feigns positivity on "What to Do with the Neutral." As he sneers out his disgust, Mudhoney stomp out blitzkrieg rockers and Stooges dirges, working within their wheelhouse but gamely stretching out, encompassing hints of blues and elastic slide guitars. It is, in other words, a Mudhoney album through and through: no outright surprises sonically, but beneath the roar it's hard not to admire how their perennial piss-takes are subtly deepening and how their saturated superfuzz always sounds so good.

Customer Reviews

Chris Petrill

Another sterling gem from the Godfathers of Grunge. Mark and Steve are an amazing duo who have not lost their touch. These guys sound as good now now as they did in 1988.

Mudhoney creams the crop

I've been waiting for so long for this new album. Mark does an incredible impression of Iggy Pop on "What to do with neutral" and vintage Mudhoney rockers on the tracks "I don't remember you" and the gem "I like it small". A must for anyone who likes garage rock at its best, Mark is howling and Steve is the best!

Straight Outta Seattle!

There are many bands that claim Seattle as their hometown but Mudhoney are one of the few that actually were. I don't mean the burbs of Seattle either. Ask anyone from the Emerald City and they will tell that Mudhoney are still the Kings of Seattle! As for the new record...one word...Kickass!!

Biography

Formed: 1988 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Nirvana may have been the band that put an entire generation in flannel, and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden both sold a lot more records, but Mudhoney were truly the band that made the '90s grunge rock movement possible. Mudhoney were the first real success story for Sub Pop Records; their indie-scene success laid the groundwork for the movement that would (briefly) make Seattle, Washington, the new capital of the rock & roll universe; and they took the sweat-soaked and beer-fueled mixture of heavy...
