Album Review

Collecting Green River's second and third releases, plus three rare tracks, Dry As a Bone/Rehab Doll is a near-definitive look at the Seattle band that, along with the Melvins and Soundgarden, virtually invented grunge. Out of all the bands that branched out from the Green River family tree, the originals sound most like Mudhoney upon first listen. That's due both to their punky aggression and the fact that Mark Arm's signature sneer is firmly in place. However, the differences reveal themselves rather quickly. Where Mudhoney was sort of the Ramones of grunge — their best material consisting of simple, catchy, highly similar garage rockers — Green River's instrumental attack was much more intricate and complex. That's because it was anchored by the inseparable team of guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament, whose work here mixes the swagger of '70s hard rock (particularly Aerosmith) and the ferocity of hardcore punk. Melody and hooks aren't exactly Green River's strong point; their music gets over on straight-from-the-gutter attitude, kicking up a filthy, distorted racket punctuated by Arm's nauseous moan. Since Dry As a Bone/Rehab Doll is more energetic and less murky than many proto-grunge artifacts, it's arguably the most effective and enduring building block in the music's early evolution.

2nd only to Nirvana

I love these guys. They are the founders of grunge. If you like Nirvana you will love this band. its like the 2nd Bleach. You Should By This Album!

You can't say you like grunge if you don't have this album

It is ESSENTIAL that you get this album. No other explanation is needed other than you're a moron for not getting this album sooner.


I guess I tunes waited long enough to give us this great album.Forever Means gets a 10 out of 10 from me.Theres no point in buying just one song - get the whole damn thing (its good enough).If you like grunge and are a fan of mother love bone,mudhoney,and pearl jam (all the members of Green River moved on to these bands except Alex Vincent) this is a good album to purchase.So do it.


Formed: 1984 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s

Green River were arguably the first grunge band, forming around the same time as the rest of Seattle's first wave (the Melvins, Soundgarden, and Malfunkshun). In 1985, they became the first grunge band to release a record, kickstarting the Seattle music scene and later helping to establish the Sub Pop label. However, Green River are even more famous for the bands that sprang from their breakup: Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone, the latter of which also contained the roots of Pearl Jam. That lineage...
