Reseña de álbum

Originally released in 2002 as part of the New Miserable Experience Deluxe Edition, this album collects material from the first five years of the Gin Blossoms’ career. Included are two full EPs, several outtakes, and a number of live songs taken from a 1993 concert in Solana Beach, CA. The Gin Blossoms originally released New Miserable Experience in 1992, right in the middle of Nirvana’s heyday, and their jangled pop songs made them sound like the clean-cut cousins to grunge’s grizzled, angsty stepchildren. This collection proves that the band always had teeth, however, and the presence of Doug Hopkins — the talented guitarist and struggling alcoholic who wrote most of the band’s early hits — reminds us that the Gin Blossoms weren’t as squeaky clean as their melodies suggested.

Pure Genius

These guys rock! The genius of Gin Blossoms' core writing team at the time, lead singer Robin Wilson, guitarist Jesse Valenzuela, and late lead guitarist Doug Hopkins, is evident in the raw emotion conveyed in refined, pleasing ways. Overall, Gin Blossoms were one of the chief bands who shaped adult alternative's sound. This album is an essential. 1. Lost Horizons- Doug Hopkins' slightly depressing alt-rocker is really made wonderful by Robin Wilson's melancholy vocals. The riff is catchy as well. (10/10) 2. Hey Jealousy- Gin Blossoms' definitive hit; another one of Hopkins' songs. The guitars have just the right amount of crunch. This track also showcases Hopkins' soloing chops. You'll be singing and dancing along with this one in no time. (10/10) 3. Mrs. Rita- Jesse Valenzuela's (and Jim Swafford's) song about a local psychic in Tempe, Arizona. A decent mid-tempo rocker. (7/10) 4. Until I Fall Away- Robin Wilson and Jesse Valenzuela's sublime ballad. It is by far one of the most beautiful songs ever written. (10/10) 5. Hold Me Down- A mid-tempo song in Gin Blossoms' unique style. A little drawn-out, but still highly recommended. (8/10) 6. Cajun Song- One of the album's two weak points. A bit too out-of-genre, but catchy. 5/10 7. Hands Are Tied- One of Robin Wilson's few grittier vocals (the other being "Weeds" on Gin Blossoms' "Just South Of Nowhere" DVD, one of Gin Blossoms' best songs), and a great rock song. (9/10) 8. Found Out About You- This song can be properly appreciated now that it isn't being played 15 times a day by every radio station. Some excellent guitar and writing by Doug Hopkins, and one of Bill Leen's best baselines. The solo is a bit weak, however. (9/10) 9. Allison Road- The original major-label version of the song, not the strange remix. A great adult alternative song. (8/10) 10. 29- In my opinion, the second best song Jesse Valenzuela ever wrote (next to "Follow You Down"). This song sets a nice, melancholy mood with its great chord progression. (9/10) 11. Pieces of the Night- A sublime melody that will stick with you for a long time. The version with the piano ending from NME Deluxe Edition is more highly recommended, though. (9/10) 12. Cheatin'- The album's second out-of-genre weak point. Compare this to "Congratulations... I'm Sorry"'s "Memphis Time," and this song balks. Thankfully it isn't meant to be serious, although Jesse Valenzuela is a great singer. (4/10)

A Must-Own Pop/Rock Album

Forget lumping this album into a strictly "90's Best" playlist, "New Miserable Experience" is one finely crafted pop/rock album period. Though the band's popularity is short-lived, that's no excuse NOT to pick-up this album. Even the lowest points of the CD (probably only 1 or 2 tracks at most) aren't enough to detract from the overall picture. Great song writing, great hooks and melodies equals one truly great album.

hey jealousy

Hey Jealousy, need I say more. But I will...Until I Fall Away, Allsion Road, Found out about you, Cajun Song...the list keeps going. And their new Cd is dynamite too. Definitely, if you like Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, Matt Perrone, John Mellencamp, Hootie...you'll love Gin Blossoms and this CD. It's catchy and great to sing along with.

By blending contemporary power pop with elements of the post-grunge era, Gin Blossoms briefly emerged as torchbearers of the lighter side of alternative rock. Bassist Bill Leen and guitarist Doug Hopkins formed the band in 1987 in Tempe, AZ, rounding out the initial lineup with vocalist Jesse Valenzuela, guitarist Richard Taylor, and drummer Chris McCann. The following year saw several personnel shifts as the band struggled to solidify — McCann was replaced by Dan Henzerling (and, shortly thereafter,...
