CD Reviews

Take it easy, folks

"for me the album is just another morphine album. by that, I'm trying to say that morphine has no bad album. this may be a b-sides work but it sounds like a average one. don't be silly, folks. don't try to find a secret message. here's the band at his best. it's not junk music, it's the old band playing as usual. spend a good moment and turn off the tv."
It rocks

"very different from the norm. sometimes its not about what YOU think a band should be about. sometimes its about the band messing their fans a little. this isn't typical morphine. if all you can stomach is typical morphine (or typical anything) you are wasting your time and money. for those of you that are open to some cool and weird stuff, you'll love it. i promise. doodoobrad >>> atl >>> GA."
"I got an action-packed extravaganza..." (from "Mile High")

"This collection of Morphine rarities shows off Mark Sandman's spoken word performance as much as it shows off the band's standard low rock sound and skill with ethereal low-fi.The live tracks are great, with "Have a Lucky Day" having a bit more frivolity than the studio version; "Mail," "My Brain," "Pulled Over the Car," and the lyrically-rich "Kerouac" are all Sandman-as-poet tracks; "Bo's Veranda" is acoustic guitar made for relaxing with drinks; the two long-format songs, "Sundayafternoonweightlessness" and "Down Love's Tributaries" bring the trippiness of Colley's dragging saxophones and shows off free-form jazz roots, and the swank "Mile High" and "Shame" (two of Morphine's best rockers) keep the entire album from getting too bottom-heavy.This is a must-buy for any Morphine fan, and is representative of the various genres and styles that have influenced the band."
