Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Given the preponderance of synthesizers and samples on contemporary radio
outlets, fans of guitar bands must be feeling a little let down, when along
comes a Blind Melon. BLIND MELON puts a contemporary slant on metal, blues and
assorted psychedelia without sounding lost in the past. Nevertheless, their deep
roots in classic FM sounds help define their appeal, not unlike that of a Pearl
Vocalist Hoon howls at the moon in the best tradition of Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne and Axl Rose, while the Glen Graham-Brad Smith rhythm team moves convincingly from rock thrash ("Paper Scratcher") to funk ("Seed To A Tree") and even some country and eastern sounds ("Holyman", "Sleepyhouse"). But the heart and soul of BLIND MELON are the loose spacey exchanges between guitarists Christopher Thorn and Roger Stevens, who sound at times like the Grateful Dead paraphrasing Led Zeppelin ("Soak The Sun", "No Rain").
Blind Melon was nominated for a 1994 Grammy Award as "Best New Artist".
