Awesome Album
jomasterjoe | ONT, Canada | 11/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Many other reviewers have covered my feelings about Shannon Hoon, so I'll just get to the point. I am a young and new fan of Blind Melon. Shannon had already passed on by the time I started getting into music, but I can see why so many people were devestated by the news. Blind Melon is awesome. Anyway, getting to the album, this album is a collection of great songs, with no dud songs. (by dud songs I mean bad songs by good bands) "Soak the Sin" Gets you right into the Blind Melon mood. A rock song, but not a hard one, this is one of my favourites on the album. "Tones of Home" will bring older fans back to their days of love concerts and mary jane. For me it's just a great old fashioned song. The intro for this song is one my favourites. "I Wonder" is a great softer song about challenges and internal struggle that can be quite a motivator. "Paper Scratcher" is an awesome rock song that I look forward to when listening to this album. It's a great pick-up after the sad "I Wonder" This song will put you in a good mood. I think this song would be really popular nowadays. "Dear Ol' Dad" is another old fashioned but really good song. It's one of those songs that kind of drags you in while you listen to it, and you get right into the mood. "Change" was obviously written for a reason. A powerful, meaningful, but sad song, this will make you think. On the down side, this song kind of saddens me. Luckily, the next song up is "No Rain" possibly the happiest song ever written, though the well written lyrics make me think that wasn't the intent. Still, you can't help but smile and sing along with this song. "Deserted" is another one of my favourites. Another self-searching song, but not a sad one. This one makes you take problems seriously, but still with optimism. Mainly a rock song with some cool, different parts. "Sleepy House" is a cool-down song. The lyrics are really nice and calming too. "Holyman" is a nice partner to "Sleepy House" because it starts out calm, then kicks up and gets more preppy. All in all a good song. "Seed to a Tree" is another of my favourites. It's a great example of Blind Melon's hardcore rocker side. This song is mostly about accomplishments and how it's possible to achieve goals. "Drive" is a sadder, softer song about a guy who sets many goals, but has no ambition, and ends up wasting his life. "Time" is an awesome song reflecting the roots of Blind Melon, and closes the album in a way that makes you want more. The awesome gutiar and vocals make this song explosive. "Time" might be my favourite on the album, but for me it's hard to choose from "Soak the Sin" "Paper Scratcher" "No Rain" "Seed to a Tree" and "Time""
Very underrated CD by a very underrated band

"I remembering hearing "No Rain" when it first came out on the radio and it instantly became my childhood favorite [I was about 8 at the time]. "No Rain" is a good song and went on to be a decent hit, but unfortunately it turned out to be the only big hit by what turned out to be one of the most underrated bands of the 90's. After seeing the 'Behind The Music' on them I decided to get the cd and it wasn't a dissapointment at all. Sure, No Rain is great but so are "Dear Ol' Dad", "I Wonder", "Drive" and every last one of the songs on this album. There seriously isn't a single bad track [my personal favorite however, besides "No Rain", is "Change"]. If you like Jane's Addiction, The Violent Femmes, or heck, even Green Day then you'll probably like Blind Melon {I mean heck, I usually listen to grunge and hard rock and I still like them]. All of their albums are great and worth buying but their debut, in my opinion, is their best. So do yourself a favor and discover the wonders of Blind Melon!"
