So what does a grunge band sound like in 1998? It still sounds dirty, but the dirt is arrived at by better technology and a bigger budget. Recorded with legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson (who has recorded Big Star and the Replacements but is best known for playing piano with the Rolling Stones), Tomorrow Hit Today has an astonishing variety of guitar sounds and moods. The old Mudhoney were once content to kick you in the gut, but now the grunge lads are discovering the complexities of their grimy sound, adding whinnying slide guitars, swampy bass lines, and emphatic vocals that steer the humor of one song into the pathos of the next. Overlooked in the rush to hype Nirvana, Sub Pop, and coffee, Seattle's Mudhoney now deserve to be listened to with a postgrunge ear. --Lois Maffeo

Greatest grunge band is still going!!!

"it seems mudhoney have grown up. this band used to be content to kick out the 3 chords and rock. one of the pinnacle live bands of the nineties, THEY put on a rock show. this album seems mature due to the fact that they have experimented with different distortion sounds. steve turner cranks out some wicked good riffs and with a little diversity (the country meets rock of "real low vibe" is aamzing) this album is like punk meets grunge meets the blues (maybe grunge and stevie ray vaughn?)
tis a shame americans are so closed minded to music. we seem to be content to be force fed our music. this album is great and needs to be heard. forget boy bands and jennifer lopez. this is the real deal."

"This album is amazing. For starters, the album is properly produced with a famous producer and a big budget. This was to be Mudhoney's commercial breakthrough- the album was to make Mudhoney a great rock band(not just a grunge one) but it didn't happen and a year after this was released the band were dropped by Reprise records. The criminally poor sales of this album were caused not least by the accusations by critics and fans that this album was a sellout from the bands old and dreaded grunge label into more classically rotated rock. This is by no means their most hardcore album it is a mature, postgrunge album and Mudhoneys last ditch attempt to prevent themselves dying with grunge- and they should not have died because forget about grunge for a moment, this is one of the finest rock'n'roll albums I have ever heard.
Steve Turners' guitar riffs and solo's are brilliant I never knew he could play the guitar so good- his unmistakable country-rock style riff on 'Real Low Vibe' later became the main theme for a budweiser beer advertisement on television. It's a pity more people bought the beer than this album. The band still show their grunge roots are still in tact with the climatic 'I have to laugh'. Although it's the only 100% 'grunge' song on the album it is Mudhoney's best ever grunge song- it blew my mind the first time I heard it and it continues to do so Mark Arm's screeching is terrific- this is a very strong performance vocally and lyrically from Arm. Just listen to 'Move with the wind', what cool lyrics and slow but brilliant classical guitar riff- unlike anything ever heard on any other Mudhoney album. This album is a cross between the sex pistols and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Terrific stuff. The album finshes up with the moody epic 'Beneath the valley of the underdog' its just one of those rare 10 out of 10 songs to close a brilliant album. People need to hear this album. Forget about that grunge thing they were doing in the early 90's and how nobody took them really serious. This is seriously a brilliant rock'n'roll album(NOT grunge)by a seriously talented band."
Tomorrow Hit Today.. Damned Right

"Although it's been 2 and a half years since this album was released, it is still in heavy rotation in my cd player. Mudhoney would have to be one of the most rocking bands of all time and THT is no exception. From start to finish, this album oozes the extreme form of rock n roll that is mudhoney. Mark's screaming vocals that never fail to get the attention of all who hear. Steve's bluesy guitar who's fuzz is enough to make a sheep jealous. Matt's steady sludgy bass playing and lastly, Dan's Unconventional thunderously amaziningly original drumming which never ceases to amaze me. Mudhoney, like a fine wine, get better and better with age. Mudhoney will be the Iggy Pop of their generation. Rocking well into their 50's (maybe even longer! we can all hope)Jeremy."
