Album Review

On their third release, 1995's Yes, Morphine shied away from the more accessible direction they laid down on 1994's superb Cure for Pain, going for a more challenging (but just as rewarding) direction. While the singles/videos "Honey White" and "Super Sex" did contain a pop edge (and were the album's best), other tracks, such as "The Jury" and "Sharks" pushed the envelope by containing lyrics that sound as if they're stream of consciousness. Like its predecessor, it's a highly consistent album — even the lesser-known tracks are integral to the album's overall makeup. "Scratch," "All Your Way," "I Had My Chance," "Free Love," and "Gone for Good" all sound like the observations of a broken-down man, steeped in despair. But the mood lightens up on such selections as "Radar" and the title track, plus the aforementioned singles. With nearly all alt-rock bands sounding identical and bashing angrily away at their instruments in 1995, Morphine proved to be in a league all by themselves. Yes is perhaps just a shade less spectacular than Cure for Pain, but certainly not by much.

Customer Reviews

Morphine at their best...

Another great release from Morphine, and probably their second best overall after Cure for Pain. Honey White, Yes, I Had My Chance, and Sharks are my personal favorites. Powerful sax, killer hybrid Mark Sandman guitar-bass (a few strings of each on one instrument), and stream-of-consciousness lyrics. Vintage Morphine. No other band has been or ever will be like this.

Great Album!!!

I really like 'Cure for pain' alot but this album is a must have if you like Morphine alot. 'Honey White', 'Sharks', 'All your way' and Super Sex are some of my favs on this album. I saw them live in Seattle at Bumber-Shoot 4 or 5 years ago and its hard to say it in word other than to say I felt really alive and great when seeing them on stage. If youre into acid jazz at all you'll really like Morphine. Sandmans voice is really soothing and he has alot of feeling and soul in his music. I like how he sums all of his albums up with the (gone for good) last song on all of his CDs.

Great!

I think this is Morphine's second best album and it stands out with songs like Honey White and Super Sex

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Cambridge, MA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

Morphine is a rarity -- bluesy, bare-bones rock & roll without any guitars. Instead of guitar riffs, the trio relies on sliding two-string basslines, raucous saxophones, and wry, ironically detached vocals. During the mid-'90s, Morphine gained a sizable cult following in America, primarily due to good word of mouth, heavy college airplay, and positive reviews. Morphine was formed in 1990 by bassist/vocalist Mark Sandman, who had previously played with the bluesy alternative rock band Treat Her...
