Um… Yeah. Alternative. Sucks. I didn’t even buy this album, I stole it from my sister’s room about 12 years ago wanting to try something new. I wonder why I never slipped it back into her room after deciding I hated it… I can appreciate some alternative bands, but a band like the freakin’ Meat Puppets defines everything bad about that broad genre. This is stuff Beavis & Butthead should’ve been making fun of. And they probably did.

I mean, this album went GOLD, Jerry, GOLD! Unthinkable. The 90s were weird, man. Okay, I will say ONE positive thing about this album, “Backwater” is a really good song.

Highlights: “Backwater”
